Been using folderview for a while now and it just keeps getting better =]

One small bug with version 0.92...when a background image is used its corners stick past the rounded corners of the screenlet.

Are there any plans to implement a feature that allows the user to use an image instead of just choosing a color for the background of the applet?

I think that'd be awesome. :)

Hi! I have been using this screenlet for several months now and I love it, especially since the scrollbar was added.

I just have one small issue. Whenever I add or remove a file or folder from the directory displayed in FolderView, the files and folders disappear on mouseover; that is, when the mouse is over the files themsenves (when it's just over the screenlet itself they are still visible, and they reappear as soon as the mouse leaves the files). The behaviour returns to normal as soon as I scroll up or down.

I really like this screenlet, its great. Makes my desktop a lot tidier.

Just a few things though. Would it be possible to have so that if you double click on the screenlet it upons the folder.

Also when you have a launcher the names go a bit weird. I have a look at the python code but I don't really know gObject which is how you seem to be doing it. Any chance of this being sorted?

This is a really great widgit though. Congrats.

weird how?

I think, it uses the filename of the launcher, not the "name" inside the launcher.

I think a screenshot is easier than trying to describe it.

Can I drag files in it into an folder in it.

eg if I have a folder called games on my desktop
and I have my screenlet showing the folder desktop. purely from the screenlet can I drag a file into stuff?
yes it is locked.

ok, will post back in a bit.
Interestingly when I investigated further, its only the ones that I have added from the main menu that are weird. The ones that the installed made themselves are fine.

Hi Whise,
Thanks again for your work :-)
I have only a little problem (I really don't want to take your time.. but it's quite annoying :-P)
Actually I would like this screenlet to stay under everything. Sometimes it shows up and (this is the worse) I have it on the top left corner of my desktop. When I copy a new file on my Desktop it's puting this file under the screenlet... Is there any way to avoid this?
Have a nice day!

Hi there,
I'm using your screenlet and let say that I'm quite happy with it ;-)
I have a few proposal.. I mean it's only what a total noob-end-user would really like to have in your applet ;-)
So the first thing would be to have a "context menu" with copy/delete or property option on the files present in the folder. (it may already be included but as I'm a real noob I didn't found it..)
The second and not the least would be to have the possibility to have your folder with a "roll option" So that the user only had to pass his mouse on the side of the screen and then the folderview appear from the side of the screen where it is attached (sticked).
Hope that you don't think that I mean that your screenlet is incomplete, I have installed it and I'm really not ready to remove it :-)))
Have a nice day and thanks for your work!!

I started using this somewhere around 5.5, loved where it was headed but not where it was at. I'm really impressed with how far it's come since then; you, sir, are a prince among widgetmakers.
