Thanks for the ebuild.

I have used rox for many years and this ebuild is a very good news :D

I created an account just to express how important keeping rox-filer in the portage tree is!

The ROX file manager is probably my #1 favorite piece of software currently in the tree.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who appreciates it.

For one of my computers, I learned how to create a portage overlay just so I could install rox-filer.

Probably should file a warning bug or reply to that bug saying that it would end up blocking rox-lib and might well remove the rest of rox.
Need someone to fix rox, I suppose, but it looks like it's been left for the dead.


I've also been using rox forever, and intend to keep using it. As far as I know, there's no outstanding bugs outside of no new releases for some time.

Alas looks like another piece of software that's heading towards the bit bucket, which is a pity as it is one of the udisks-free filemanagers out there. Alas now I'm just using the udisks file managers (thunar, nautilus), it's more fun to use when dealing with a GUI and removable media...


A few udev rules auto-mount and auto-open rox for me when any kind of removable media is inserted into my computer (CDs, sd cards, usb storage etc.). Udisks isn't necessary.

As I haven't heard back in https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=533642 I just want to inform you that there seems to be no maintainer right now and we will proceed to remove rox in February.
If you all are just interested in rox-filer, I suggest to work on https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=537388 and step up as a proxied maintainer.

I'm sorry it won't be me; wife just had open heart surgery and stroke and I'm happily busy with her. Someone else please do this little work with rox-filer. As my wife says, "It should be easy, it's not open heart surgery..."

I made the required changes to the ebuild. Please check. Also, if you have access to an x86 box then please use the ebuild as app-misc/rox-filer-2.11 and either add ~x86 to the keyword list, or let me know - I will update the ebuild.
