.B a GTK+2 file manager
emelFM2 is a file manager for UNIX-like operating systems. It uses a simple and
efficient interface pioneered by Norton Commander in the 1980’s. The main window
is divided into three “panes” or “panels”. Two of them show information about
the contents of selected filesystem directories. That information is presented
as text. The third pane shows the output of commands executed within the

At session-start, show DIR in the second filelist pane.
Set the configuration-data directory to DIR (default: ~/.config/emelfm2).
Set the filesystem character encoding to TYPE.
Set the fallback encoding to TYPE (default: ISO-8859-1).
Ignore the encoding/locale problems (use at your own risk!).
Maximise GTK+2 error logging.
Detach the emelFM2 session from its controlling terminal. Will not work when emelFM2 is compiled with debug support.
Run COMMAND immediately after session start.
Set one-line config option. “OPTION_NAME=string-value” is a string in the format used in the config file.
Set the trash directory to DIR (default: ~/.local/share/Trash/files).
Display a brief help message.

Display the version and build information.
These only work when emelFM2 is compiled with debug support:
Set the debug level. N = digit from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest). Default is 5.
Display time and location information in debug messages. Only works when emelFM2 is compiled with debug support.
.SH “FILES AND DIRECTORIES”

Default location of application-specific icon files.
Default location for configuration files, named “config” and “cache”.
