Rolling Release Packages

Mateusz Łukasik's Unstable PPA provides daily builds of SpaceFM's 'next' branch, which is the rolling release version. (Mateusz Łukasik is the official Debian packager for SpaceFM and udevil.)

The net installer can upgrade any already installed version of SpaceFM. To revert to the official Debian package, just reinstall it.

###Ubuntu Mateusz Łukasik's Ubuntu PPA provides stable packages. (Mateusz Łukasik is the official Debian packager for SpaceFM and udevil.) Packages in this PPA also correct Unity issues.

(OLD) From Issue #49:

If you want to have the menus in view from the 'dash' launcher in Unity you need to do the following:

cp /usr/share/applications/spacefm.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
gedit ~/.local/share/applications/spacefm.desktop

Then edit the Exec= line in that file to:

Exec=env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= spacefm

Note some other Unity issues, most with workarounds or they're fixed in the PPA above.

###Lubuntu Mateusz Łukasik's PPA provides Lubuntu SpaceFM packages.
