latest version is

» Description:

  • 3dfile is a simple file browser, using OpenGL to display files and folders.
  • The navigation is also very simple: just point-and-click.
  • You may also experiment your favorite moves on it and see if it responds. It may or it may not.
  • Anyway, I think 3dfile is very intuitive and easy to use. If you can't handle with it, please read the docs (like the README file) and, better, the sources.

» Download:

  • You may download source code here: 3dfile- - 85kb.
  • Other packages, like bz2, rpm, deb, slp, tgz are available in the download section.
  • The binary is dynamically linked with Mesa 3.4.2, build on a Mandrake 8.1 system.
  • Bear in mind that deb, slp and tgz packages were generated with alien from rpm version and I couldn't test'em, so you may have trouble with some of them. Please inform me if they works or not.
  • Also, see the README file for more informations.

» Installation:

  • To compile the source, you'll need:
    • ANSI C compiler (used kgcc - egcs 2.91),
    • OpenGL or Mesa (used Mesa 3.4.2) with glut (used glut 3.7),
    • almost any Unix/X11 combination (used Linux 2.4.8 / XFree86 4.1.0),
    • and, of course, a computer :)
  • First you must unpack the tarball. You may copy it to /tmp and then:
    tar zxvf 3dfile-XXX.tar.gz, or if your tar can't uncompress
    gunzip 3dfile-XXX.tar.gz
    tar xvf 3dfile-XXX.tar
    Now, you can cd to 3dfile.
  • You need to compile it to actually use it. The operation is just as easy as a plane-crash. Just type:
    • ./autogen.sh
    • ./configure
    • make
    • optional: make install or make install-strip as root
    • or, if you have problems: make -f Makefile.orig
    • 3dfile
    et voila!
  • If something's wrong, please check the Makefile for the libs and directories.

» ChangeLog:

» Very important:

  • Please read the README file from the source distribution. It explains a lot more things than here.
  • Also, you're encouraged to read the rest of files, especially the sources and the ChangeLog. It may be very useful, at least to me, if you have some ideas, suggestions, or whatever (like ports to other OSes).
  • If you intend to link this page, you're free to do it, but please drop me a line, so I could make eventually a link to your page too.

» Disclaimer:

  • You may use it exactly as you want. You may use it for fun, to work better (I don't thing so), you may throw it away or you may modify and enhance it to make it more useful. But don't blame me if this 3dfile will damage your computer, your eyes, your dog or your life style.
  • In other words: 3dfile is free software, you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

» Comments:

  • I'm just hardly waiting for some reaction.
  • If you have some questions, don't hesitate to contact me.
