http://crunchbanglinux.org – How can I get thunar to recognise that .xz files are archives and so add the file-roller items (Extract Here... etc) to the context menu? They are already associated with file-roller as the default way to open them, but the additional items that are added for other archive types are not present, and there is no icon either.I'm not sure why but .tar.xz archives seem to be replacing .tar.bz2 and .tar.gz archives quite a lot.
