Has anyone tried the Sunflower filemanager yet? I did, after reading this article:
http://www.unixmen.com/software/1747-finally-the-file-manager-of-your-dreams-spotlights-on-the-sunflower

... but I get this error:
Code:
joe1962:$ ./Sunflower.py
Trying with python2.7...
ImportError: could not import bonobo.ui
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./application/main.py", line 29, in <module>
    app.run()
  File "/home/joe1962/downloads/t/Sunflower/application/gui/main_window.py", line 1449, in run
    self.create_tab(self.left_notebook, FileList)
  File "/home/joe1962/downloads/t/Sunflower/application/gui/main_window.py", line 1482, in create_tab
    new_tab = plugin_class(self, notebook, path)
  File "/home/joe1962/downloads/t/Sunflower/application/plugins/file_list.py", line 223, in __init__
    self._thumbnail_view = ThumbnailView(self)
  File "/home/joe1962/downloads/t/Sunflower/application/widgets/thumbnail_view.py", line 45, in __init__
    self._factory = gnome.ui.ThumbnailFactory(self._thumbnail_size)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'ThumbnailFactory'

... and am not really sure what is missing here. I have all the VL7 python stuff installed, but we don't have a python bonobo package, nor can I find anything like that at slackbuilds.org, slacky.eu or other slackware package sites.

make sure you have the gnome-python and gnome-python-desktop and maybe even the gnome-python-extras packages

Dang! My gsb repo mirror isn't complete, so I didn't have gnome-python-desktop. I can't find any gnome-python-extras package on the repo though...

Installed gnome-python-desktop, but I still get the same error with Sunflower...

you need pyorbit + gnome-python

gnome-python must have been built against pyorbit, or it wont have the bonobo.ui module
works for me after installing pyorbit and gnome-python on VL7 RC1

sbbuilder builds both of them easily

Installed pyorbit, still same issue... Sad

Did those 2 packages pull any deps for you?

No.. I built them from source.

Try building gnome-python from source after installing or building pyorbit.

Ok, built gnome-python-2.22.3 and Sunflower is running now. Now all I have to do is figure out what is supposed to make it better than mc, emelfm or gnome-commander... Grin
