I have a problem with pcmanfm (not accessible etc). I think this is related to the fact that I had installed a 1.0 version, then purged and reinstalled but now I cannot tell what version I am using, while the initial problem is not yet solved..

You can use the command apt-cache policy pcmanfm in a terminal to see it. Alternatively you can also use the PcManFM GUI to see it. Go to Menu → Help → About to see the version.

As yet another method (as izx said in a comment), you can use dpkg -l pcmanfm to see the version number of it.
