First, please, use bottom post method, or the threads become fast unreadable ! You can
bottom post and quote in the text, provided you use a good mail client to do that.
In computing world, and especially in the Free Software world, what you don't understand
is always meant for someone else. You are on a mailing list here ! So this mail of pcman
is not just for you : it is intended to be read by the ones who are able to understand
and assist pcman in his task !!!
PCMan has done a huge and incredibly interesting work with a full LXDE destkop which
funnily relies partly on a file manager ! Please don't despise it !
I often don't understand part or all of what is written : so when I am not able to
participate in a topic, I don't ! In the meanwhile I have the privilege to know before
the ones who are not on the list, what will happen next ! ^^

under the shape of a wish at the relevant place, which is perhaps here:
(to Brother : is that the right place for wishes ?)
