Hello,

I have problem launching vifm on the windows network directory. I am using msys2 with vifm obtained from the package manager.

I have no luck launching with command vifm , vifm . , vifm //networkname, vifm "//networkname" on the terminal

Even when inside vifm, I tried command :goto //networkname and it says: "Path doesn't exist: /networkname"

Thank you for your help

Hi,

msys2 is based on Cygwin and so is Unix-like environment. This means that that build doesn't have Windows-specific features like :volumes command or Windows paths support including UNC paths.

Is there any workaround to get this working on msys?

No, I don't really know how to compile it as a Windows application against Unix-like curses.

If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
