N950 tip: run ranger, Pythonic vim-inspired file manager
Harmattan has Python 2.6.6, so ranger can run here, as opposed to N900 with Python 2.5.
Find address for latest tgz-ball. Unpack.
$ devel-su Password: rootme # cd hut-ranger-<hash>
We can’t execute scripts directly because of aegis, so just run the script into python.
# python ./setup.py install --optimize=1 --record=install_log.txt # exit
This will install ranger into /usr/local and exit root shell. Now we also can’t run ranger directly because of aegis. Let’s set up an alias for this. Busybox needs $ENV to specify a startup script for it’s built-in ash.
$ vi .profile
Append “export ENV=$HOME/.bashrc” somewhere. Sure, why not “.bashrc”, we’ll be ready as soon as a working bash package gets finally built.
$ echo "alias ranger='python /usr/local/bin/ranger'" > .bashrc
Here’s a screenshot of ranger on N950. Just delicious, surely tastier than mangos.
