I am new to xfce (xubuntu 11.10) and was surprised at the featureless, unfriendly Thunar is used instead of Nautilus. Apparently Thunar cannot browse network shares (and many other things) the way Nautilus can. I have read and tried numerous work-arounds but none work very well.

I would have tried gvfs-git, since Thunar has it as optional dependency, you most probably have it installed, however since pcmanfm does work and also relies on gvfs, this is probably a dead end.
I'm running Xubuntu 12.04.4 as the host and have installed a copy of Xubuntu 14.04.1 as a guest, with my home folder on the host (/home/jk) set up as a permanent shared folder, not read-only, and auto-opened.
However any attempt to browse that folder through its mount point at /media/sf_jk returns "Access Denied." The same thing happens if I open a copy of Thunar as root via "gksud
Hi all,i like the thunar + gigolo combo to browse FTP files in my server but i want more ^^I want to be able to modify this files via geany. As far as i know this is possible innautilus because u mount the files in the .gfvs directory.
(This is not a duplicate as this question describes how to add custom icons to folders in Nautilus, whereas there seems to be no explanation for Thunar.)
In Nautilus (as this questions shows) there is the fun feature of being able to place any custom icon onto a folder by just right clicking the folder, clicking the folder in the menu that comes up and selecting a custom icon.
I am messing around with Thunar and Openbox, and am wondering:
I'd love a list view instead of a view with icons, which is doable, but it makes it hard to pick out folders from files.
Is there a way to configure thunar, so folders can be displayed in a distinct colour, and if so, where do I go?
I'm working on an external USB HDD in Thunar. The /media/MOUNT folder now contains a ".Trash-1000" folder. I removed it with Shift-Del, created a dummy file and deleted it, and the folder re-appeared, so it's definitely created by Thunar. I've done some searching, but I can't find a way to empty the trash from within Thunar. Any ideas?
