SpaceFM At A Glance
If there are no packages for your distro, or you prefer to build SpaceFM with custom build options, a self-extracting installer is available in Downloads (click on a file and click View Raw to download). The installer MUST be run in a terminal. It automatically builds and installs, and should work with any recent distro. Run it like this:
The installer requires the build dependencies listed in the README file. Build dependencies for the default GTK2 build include: (package names may vary on your distro)
autotools-dev bash build-essential dbus desktop-file-utils libc6 libcairo2 libdbus-1-3 libglib2.0-0 libgtk2.0-0 (>=2.18) libgtk2.0-bin libpango1.0-0 libstartup-notification0 libx11-6 shared-mime-info intltool pkg-config libgtk2.0-dev libglib2.0-dev fakeroot libstartup-notification0-dev libdbus-1-dev libudev0 (>=143) libudev-devAlso recommended: udevil|pmount|udisks, eject, lsof, wget, ktsuss|gksu
If any dependencies are missing, examine the error, install missing packages, and try again.
To reinstall or upgrade, just run the latest installer again.
