As someone who has run AM4 in the past, I'm really looking forward to version 5.

I hope he'll accept donations though.

Well, that feature was planned years ago if I understand the forum correctly.

Yes, please. Get out.

Microsoft has translation databases for common technical terms.  smiley

Why so complicated? German agencies should not be used as a source for English terms. "Enabling" is "putting something into operation", basically.

I'd call the configuring and "commissioning" part the "configuration", but I'm German anyway.  cheesy

Sublime Text does that too, it keeps even unsaved tabs in memory until you close the tab manually.

Indeed. FreeCommander looks better.
135  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: June 05, 2014, 06:07:23 PM
It uses the default Windows context menu (with a weird design), so probably it does.

Well, thanks for the lesson. smiley

Hey, my English isn't as perfect as your German. smiley
(Also it's "do", not "to". tongue)

I found the SC forums to be rather helpful, but I found a couple of things missing in SC too, like regex support for the renamer and a way to properly set emacsclient as the preferred editor. Still, setting the editor and the renamer as "external applications" and using Listary makes SC rather interesting.

Of course TC has a long history of being tweaked by hobbyists. I, for one, prefer to just use a file manager.

What does it do that Emacs doesn't?

(Except that it looks like an IDE which I don't really like.)

One file for a volume - and TrueCrypt itself. Now what?
141  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: TrueCrypt alternative on: May 31, 2014, 12:42:11 PM
How's EncFS not portable?
142  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: TrueCrypt alternative on: May 31, 2014, 11:15:38 AM
EncFS isn't portable, because...?
143  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: May 31, 2014, 11:15:20 AM
As for the programs you mentioned, I've used both extensively, but quite a long time ago so I don't have much experience with the recent versions. They were both solid performers at the time, though. SpeedCommander is very German-centric and Salamander seems to want to nickel and dime you for every plugin.

As a German, the centricism isn't too bad for me.  tongue
But thanks for the "comparison" though.
144  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: TrueCrypt alternative on: May 31, 2014, 05:11:25 AM
1. I'll stick with TrueCrypt for my container file until it's clear what happens with the audited planned fork.
2. Why use containers anyway? Use EncFS.

@panzer: JustManager still lacks SFTP support, right? Sad

Sorry, Jibz, but I really tried. I tried Total Commander several times since its 7.0 days IIRC, playing with its config., talking to some users, trying to make it look like something I might want to look at for a couple of hours a day. No chance. Even the "Ultima Prime" mod looks awfully on all screenshots I've ever stumbled upon. I guess "form follows function", but if I have the choice, I'd choose both. (Not that x² looked too modern either, but still...)
Yesterday I gave it another run - couldn't even find out how to use the SFTP plug-in.

As I'm currently flooding several boards with it, I'd like to attach my question also here:

Being a happy XY/x² user, I'm still looking for a good "orthodox" file manager (Norton Commander clone) for certain tasks. Required: SFTP support, no way to disable the second panel (I want to force myself into using it correctly), a decent GUI (no Total Commander stuff pls).

Altap Salamander, SpeedCommander or something very different? Any good reasons?
Tried them both (and FAR) and can't really decide.
147  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: TrueCrypt is Now Abandonware?! on: May 29, 2014, 06:18:34 AM
AFAIK the download provided there probably contains a trojan.

(Well, the spirit of Open Source, right? Secure and trustable and everything.)

Oh, neat, another Linux whose devs misunderstood that Linux is not meant to replace anything.

Atom is a decent browser and still doesn't have a good editor.

Why not Emacs?
