NAME

emelFM2 - a GTK2+ file manager

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

emelfm2 [OPTION]... [DIR]

DESCRIPTION

emelFM2 is a file manager for UNIX-like operating systems. It uses a simple and efficient interface pioneered by Norton Commander in the 1980’s. The main window is divided into three "panes" or "panels". Two of them show information about the contents of selected filesystem directories. That information is presented as text. The third pane shows the output of commands executed within the program.

A built-in command-line, toolbar buttons or assigned keys can be used to initiate commands. A flexible filetyping mechanism provides user-determined actions for desired filetypes.

COMMAND LINE OPTIONS

-1,--one= DIR
  At session-start, show DIR in the first filelist pane.
-2,--two= DIR
  At session-start, show DIR in the second filelist pane.
DIR Same as -2 DIR, except pane 2 is focused.
-c,--config= DIR
  Set the configuration-data directory to DIR (default: ~/.config/emelfm2).
-a,--share-config= DIR
  Also load configuration-data from directory DIR. Session config data are not saved to DIR.
-e,--encoding= TYPE
  Set the filesystem character encoding to TYPE.
-f,--fallback-encoding= TYPE
  Set the fallback encoding to TYPE (default: ISO-8859-1).
-i,--ignore-problems
  Ignore the encoding/locale problems (use at your own risk!).
-l,--log-all
  Maximise GTK+2 error logging.
-m,--daemon
  Detach the emelFM2 session from its controlling terminal. Will not work when emelFM2 is compiled with debug support.
-r,--run-at-start= COMMAND
  Run COMMAND immediately after session start.
-s,--set-option OPTION_NAME=string-value
  Set one-line config option. "OPTION_NAME=string-value" is a string in the format used in the config file.
-t,--trash= DIR
  Set the trash directory to DIR (default: ~/.local/share/Trash/files).
-u,--user Flag displayed username.

Help options:

-b,--build
  Display build-time parameters.
-h,--help Display a brief help message.
-v,--version
  Display the version and build information.

These only work when emelFM2 is compiled with debug support:

-x,--verbose
  Display time and location information in debug messages. Only works when emelFM2 is compiled with debug support.
