Comment 1 Mark 2012-05-07 15:59:14 UTC
I have been using this and found it a very nice dual pane file manager. I do not know to make an e-build nad make dev life easier, so I must ask.
Comment 2 Ulenrich 2012-05-31 00:27:22 UTC
I would appreciate an ebuild of this, as all of the outher two pane managers are currently not worked on as doublecmd. And you can enable your old Win-Totalcommander scripts as an extra benefit !
Comment 3 Mads 2013-09-13 07:47:49 UTC
The installation procedure is very non-standard, everything is done through custom shell scripts. But it should be doable if we can figure out the dependencies and stuff.

I made ebuild for 0.6.6.

version 0.7.7 has been just released. Simple bump works. Please include that one in the tree as it is best file management tool out there for all of those that like Norton Commander two panel look.

As there is new version of Double Commander I created new ebuild corresponding to it. It makes use of QT5 now as well, but hence I do not use QT than I did not test it.

Ebuild requires lazarus-1.8 hence it is required for propoer High DPI support (see link to changes above). Co compile lazarus 1.6.4 is still enough

Ebuild builds and works fine for me using GTK2, but I am not able to tell if it requires any of this as it all sounds voodish to me.
Comment 8 Wojciech Myrda 2018-01-21 10:50:53 UTC
This bug depends on: - dev-lang/fpc - dev-lang/lazarus - dev-qt/qtpascal

Hence there is new version available I took liberty of fixing ebuild according to skel.ebuild also adding appropriate xdg_desktop_database_update to it.

The 0.8.3. ebuild builds on my machine, but whenn I try to run the program, it gives me one of:

A quick check with ldd looked fine so far, I can not find any apparent linking problems.

I just noticed it does show an error due to pixmaps not loading, but works fine here with below setup:
