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.)
SpaceFM's net installer may be used to automatically download, build and install any version or branch of SpaceFM. You just need to install the listed build dependencies. The net installer can upgrade any already installed version of SpaceFM. To revert to the official Debian package, just reinstall it.
Build A Binary Package
Easily build your own binary deb package from source using the instructions in README-DEBIAN.
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.
Mateusz Łukasik's PPA provides Lubuntu SpaceFM packages.
For Debian Squeeze
sudo apt-get install -t squeeze-backports libgtk2.0-dev
(does this fix only apply when using Crunchbang backports?)
