"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

But I have grown to REALLY dig the LXDE desktop and *box WMs, and PCManFM with the MadeBits custom action scripts is nearly on par with Caja, the way I'd use it:
With PCManFM recently adding the feature to create "custom actions" (similar to Thunar), that tipped the scales for me. Also available in PCManFM-QT for LXQT desktop. Just FYI...

I believe I used to have Nautilus but i don't even know what they call it in LM these days. I just checked and I think if you use Cinnamon it's Nemo.

SFM was my favorite too.
However it looks like someone has taken up the torch.

I know a few of the crashes were related to accessing memory that simply didn't exist... but this was memory reads. I'll keep my computer up for a few days to a week or so with spacefm running to see if I can reproduce the crashes you get when running it for extended periods of time.
I actually found a python script which works to flush gdb output to a log in the event of a crash. If you could put the following in a file named my_check.py:
def my_signal_handler (event):
if (isinstance(event, gdb.SignalEvent)):
log_file_name = "a.out.crash." + str(gdb.selected_inferior().pid) + ".log"
gdb.execute("set logging file " + log_file_name )
gdb.execute("set logging on")
gdb.execute("set logging redirect on")
gdb.execute("thread apply all bt full")
gdb.execute("set confirm off")
gdb.execute("set pagination off")
You'll need to rebuild your SpaceFM installation using the following:
CFLAGS='-ggdb3' STRIP='!strip' ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
make && sudo make install
sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime > /dev/null
sudo update-desktop-database -q
sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -q -t -f /usr/share/icons/hicolor
sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -q -t -f /usr/share/icons/Faenza
After that, you'll need to restart your spacefm (Assuming you're in the folder with the previous created my_check.py):
gdb -q -x my_check.py --args spacefm --desktop
This should flush the crash output to a file within the same directory as my_check.py... that should give me some really useful information to fix the crash.
The above reads to me as though this brave chap is on the ball and seems dedicated to keeping the show on the road , at least for the moment.
You'll never need to install it again

Thunar in Xfce/MX-16 worked ok but had a few annoying quirks that Dolphin doesn't have. I could not do multi-select with the mouse, always needed Shift or Ctl keys. Columns would default to too wide for the window needing horizontal scroll. Could not "Select None", needed to "Select All" and "Invert Selection".
For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.

Thanks for this link! I'm glad to see that someone wants to try to keep the project alive. I haven't uniinstalled SpaceFM, but right now I'm feeling that Double Commander is a better fit for me. One thing I don't see in "DC" that I've used a lot in SpaceFM is a menu option for opening a root window (File > Root Window in SpaceFM). Launching gksu doublecmd or something is no big deal, though. Some people frown upon using a GUI application for root operations, but whatever.
Konqueror used to be my #1, back in the KDE 3.x days. When Dolphin was new, at first I thought it was promising but not all that great, so I kept using Konqueror; but Dolphin matured and I found myself using that most of the time, for a while.
After getting used to a certain file manager, and to doing things a certain way, I think there's usually no reason to change. A month ago, I wouldn't have even considered switching to Double Commmander. I really appreciate all the work IgnorantGuru put into SpaceFM; it's been a very nice project. Besides, I'm saturnian, hello! I'm probably gonna keep SpaceFM installed even if I mostly use DC., lol.
