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.
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?
I hope I don't offend anyone by posting a question not associated to crunchbang. I just don't know where else to go (got no answer in Arch forum and found nothing elsewhere on the web).I have a little problem with Thunar file manager that drives me nuts. Whenever I create a file/folder it is not auto-selected by Thunar.
