This is an issue that is not unique to elemfm2. It also afflicts gnome-commander and I'd guess some other apps. It does not affect ls.
I'm running Ubuntu Lucid 10.04.1 (Gnome). I have a directory with a number of files. Here are a few of the names:
jnrv_07312010.pdf jnrv101004.tex jnrv20100811.ps jnrv2010a.tex But the sorted pane for this directory (and in Gnome-Commander) is jnrv2010a.tex jnrv101004.tex jnrv20100811.ps jnrv_07312010.pdfDoes anyone know of documentation of this? I suspect some strange collating sequence rules that have been embedded somewhere that will be awkward to find. In this case, there is really no problem, but I came across this in a directory with several hundred files and couldn't find one I'd just moved into the directory, at least not for a while.
For completeness, mc gets the ordering jnrv101004.tex jnrv20100811.ps jnrv2010a.tex jnrv_07312010.pdf which increases my suspicions about collate sequence etc. JN -- Users can unsubscribe from the list by sending email to emelfm2-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the subject field or by logging into the web interface.
