Re: Setting left and right panel directories at startup

Sorry, forgot to reply all.
I said that, personally, I would put ~/Documents in the directory hotlist and get there via C-\.

Hi all,

I found this in /home/keith/.config/mc/panels.ini


I'd like mc to open /home/keith/Documents/ in the left panel as well whenever I start mc up, so both panels are showing the /home/keith/Documents/ directory.

Is there some way to tell mc how to do this please?
I think you could use: `mc <path> <path>`, for instance:
`mc /home/keith/Documents/ /tmp`, but of course this requires you to know
the second path to open in addition to your ~/Documents. Not really

Hi wwp,

Thanks for your suggestion and that seems to work OK - I just start mc with the following command:

mc ~/Documents

and both panes are opened at the ~Documents directories now which is fine.

Kind Regards,
