Doesn't save folder shortcuts

Post by pawelg » Mon 09 Jul, 2012 10:45

Far Manager v3.0 build 2761 x86
Windows XP SP3, Polish, admin rights
Doesn't store "folder shortcuts". Neither when settings are saved manually (Shift-F9) nor automatically (when
appropriate option is set). The other setings are stored correct, only "folder shortcuts" list is empty after
FAR restart. In previous (1.75) version all works normal.

can't reproduce.
can you execute following commands from far command line
cd %FARLOCALPROFILE%
dir

and send its output ?

Here You are:

Code: Select all

09.07.12  23:00             1 024 history.db
09.07.12  23:08            32 768 history.db-shm
09.07.12  23:08           219 064 history.db-wal
09.07.12  23:00             1 024 plugincache.db
09.07.12  23:08            32 768 plugincache.db-shm
09.07.12  23:08           461 152 plugincache.db-wal
09.07.12  23:00             7 168 shortcuts.db
               7 files            754 968 bytes
The same problem on 2-nd PC: Win 7/x64 Enterprise. On both I have Far 1.75 and 3.
If "shortcuts.db" is file with "folder shortcuts" - it looks to be untouched since first run
(looking at modification time).
I made another try:
1) create some shortcuts, they work and are on list (F9|Commands|Folder shortcuts)
2) rename "shortcuts.db" to "shortcuts.d"
3) save config (Shift-F9) - new "shortcuts.db" doesn't appear
4) quit Far 3.0
5) start Far, there is new "shortcuts.db", byte-to-byte identical to old one ("shortcuts.d"), and
folder shortcuts list is empty again.
I checked for another copy of "shortcuts.db" in "Documents and Settings" - none found.

lets try with clean configuration...
1) download latest far3 build archive http://www.farmanager.com/nightly/Far30 ... 0120710.7z
2) unpack it into new directory
3) create far.exe.ini (near far.exe)

Code: Select all

[General]
UseSystemProfiles=0
4) try to start far and play with shortcuts

It works (on the first PC, 2nd I will check at home)!
Thank You VERY much.
Where was the problem? Bug in previous (2761) build?

I do not know.
Nothing was changed about shortcuts since 2671.
I suspect your configuration problem, but again do not know what exactly...
Your far configuration files was recreated from scratch in <new far directory>\Profile.
If you can send me your old configuration files (far.exe.ini, previous %FARPROFILE%\*.db %FARLOCALPROFILE%\*.db)
I'll try to figure out the cause...

On the 2nd PC I made simplest solution: overwrote build 2761 with build 2764.
No "/p /m", no far.exe.ini... but it works ok!
Also - problem is resolved.
Thanks again!

BTW
Has FAR developers any plans to port it to Linux/Android?
There is Midnight Commander, but FAR is much better.

One does not simply port FAR Manager to *NIX.

1) You are right the was build 2761 problem... (still do not understand why)
2) Shortly - No, far is deep win32 api based application (however it is possible to run it under wine)

This is exactly my "luck" - after several years I decided to move from 1.xx to newer generation,
and I hit at once the buggy build :laugh:
