Far Manager for Linux, Mac OS X, etc

Post by cristianpark » Mon 17 Nov, 2008 04:43

Hello, I used Far Manager before on a SE z520 on windows and it works great, I want to use Far Manager again, but now I only have GNU/Linux Ubuntu installed, so i'm here asking for the support of the software for Linux or how can I contribute to make it work on my OS. By the way, congratulations for making this software open source, i'm sure this will make it a lot better.
Greetings

Sorry, I've tried wine already and it installs OK but when it tries to run, just crush and I can't see anything. If this is the result only on the installation, imagine what could happen if Far crush out on a Phone Flashing :| =@ :Search: .
Thanks for the quick answer

I'm using last version of far manager 1.70 (the one on the index page), and wine-1.1.7. I installed far manager from default, i checked a plugins check box, I think I have default plugins. I successfully install Far, but I can't start it
When I tried to start up, it says:

Code: Select all

 wine Far.exe 
err:seh:setup_exception_record stack overflow 876 bytes in thread 0009 eip 7bc3b344 esp 00230fc4 stack 0x230000-0x231000-0x330000

You are probably using either JDflasher or SEFP plugins. I doubt they would work in WINE even if FAR does.
Sooner or later, you might need to read this Announcement.
Also, please download the latest stable version here; it's much better than the version you are using.

In this particular case, yes.

No idea. That would mean without FAR either though.

Why don't you use Midnight commander.

'cause it sucks. And the keyboard shortcuts are all messed up.
I actually got Far 2 working under Ubuntu fairly well. Download the latest alpha, remove all plugins from a previous version, replace with the alpha code and run under

Code: Select all

wineconsole --backend=user
. Then configure file associations for * to run-mailcap or gnome-open and you are good to go.
Some plugins are ported to 2.0 and work under wine, some don`t.

Any chance for native unix builds like in case of rar? FreeBSD, Linux?

Far Manager for Mac OSX (Wine app)

Post by michaelang » Wed 10 Nov, 2010 09:39

For those who are so sick of the super old Mac Finder, here is the steps to install Far.

Install WineBottler from
http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/

WineBottler will add a default wineprefix at your home folder, mine is at "/Users/michael/Wine Files".

Copy your latest Far2 into "/Users/michael/Wine Files/drive_c/Program Files/Far2/".

Create a shell script with this single line:

Code: Select all

WINEPREFIX="/Users/michael/Wine Files" "/Applications/Wine.app/Contents/Resources/bin/wineconsole" "/Users/michael/Wine Files/drive_c/Program Files/Far2/Far.exe"
Make this script executable, and you are done.
Just run this script in your Terminal window.
Enjoy.

FAR under LINUX

Post by leszpol » Thu 07 Jul, 2011 15:50

Is it possible to FAR was also written under LINUX. Is there any technical or legal issue that the FAR is not developed for Linux. There is, of course, Midnite Commander clone but it's something not quite functional than the FAR.

Far Manager for Mac OSX Mountain Lion

Post by michaelang » Thu 13 Jun, 2013 06:10

Previous MacOX method does not work in Mountain Lion anymore, so here is the solutions.

Mountain Lion ("10.8") does not come with X11 any more so we need to install XQuartz first.
http://xquartz.macosforge.org/

Download and Install the latest WineBottler from
http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/
At this writing, I use 1.5.31

Launch WineBottler.app, at the top click on "Advanced"
Select: new prefix (default)
Choose Far Installer: Far30b3450.x86.20130613.msi
Select: This is a installer, execute it
The rest leave as default blank/unselected
Then click on "Install"
Save to /Applications and name it as Far3.app
The main Far3 Installer will pop up,
Follow the usual dialogs, click "next" all the way.
After Far installed, WineBottler will ask for StartFile, select "Program Files/Far Manager/Far.exe"

You should now have Far3.app in your /Applications folder.
You will need to edit "startwine" file inside Far3.app so that it will use "wineconsole" instead of "wine" to launch Far3

Use your favorite editor and open this file
/Applications/Far3.app/Contents/MacOS/startwine

At the end of the file you will see # start wine.. change it

exec "$WINEUSRPATH/bin/wine" ...
to
exec "$WINEUSRPATH/bin/wineconsole" ...

Save it and you are done.

For the initial launch of Far3.app, it might take a bit of time so be patient.

Enjoy.
