Accessing home directory from a Windows PC +
« on: June 18, 2013, 04:55:55 am »
Is there any way to copy files into the home directory? I'd like to at least copy my sram files and make them actually usable.

Also, does SNES9X4d really not support the sfc file extension?

I've already seen that, and no, it doesn't help.

I figured it out though - use Dingux Commander to copy or move the files. Easy enough.

If your FTP client allows for it, you can specify a directory to open. In example, in MidnightCommander while I browse the internal memory and the . directories inside home are hidden, I can simply:
Code: [Select]
cd ./.apricotsto access /home/.apricots

As for the file extensions, It's solely a matter of the MIME types inside the OPKs .desktop file. No matter what the emulator might actually support, if the person responsible for preparing the opk forgot to list one of the compatible extensions inside .desktop, it will not be displayed by gmenu2x's file browser.

That will be fixed with the next OS upgrade (hopefully soon).

Can you guys add special character support for gmenu2x? Characters like the ASCII symbol will cause gmenu2x file selector to force close but you can browse those directories in dingux commander.

I also think large file names do the same thing, however I don't know the exact length that is causing it to crash.
