Moving to Pyside2:

sudo apt install pyside2-*

  • Close tabs button added: This will always close the latest opened tab.
  • Copy, paste, move to functionalities improved.
  • More tabs added.
  • Green theme added.
  • Removing permanent delete, due to its risks
  • Please notice that on all file & folder actions, the addressbar object name tells what is being processed.
  • Back and forward store only the most recent locations.

When the content of the folder or location changes and does not seem to refresh, remember to refresh the tree via addressbar navigation. For example: Type /home and hit return/enter from the keyboard.

Do not paint your selections for copying, moving or deletion with a mouse: This will likely cause issues. Press CTRL and point and click through the objects.

After selected, right-click and choose a proper menu action.

For copying and moving: Select for copying or moving. For deletion: Delete objects.

After copying or moving selection, navigate to your target location and choose Copy to.. or Move to… from the right-click menu.
