Re: How to - Install Thunar 1.6.2

For anyone still struggling with this, here's how I upgraded to thunar 1.6.2 today:

Added the siduction keyring:

wget http://packages.siduction.org/base/pool/main/s/siduction-archive-keyring/siduction-archive-keyring_2013.03.29_all.deb
dpkg -i siduction-archive-keyring_2013.03.29_all.deb
rm siduction-archive-keyring_2013.03.29_all.deb

Added the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://ftp.spline.de/pub/siduction/xfcenext unstable main

Added the following to /etc/apt/preferences:

Package: thunar libthunarx-2-0 thunar-data
Pin: origin ftp.spline.de
Pin-Priority: 1200

And finally,

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install thunar

Re: How to - Install Thunar 1.6.2

Thunar 1.6.3 brings in a lot more dependencies relative to Wheezy than 1.6.2 and I found this caused instabilities.  Sid now has 1.6.3, while Siduction still has 1.6.2.

Also, one thing that can still delay the startup is an automount.  I have several (ssh) automounted drives and if there is nothing on the other end they will hang for a few seconds before giving up.  When Thunar encounters this, the blank frame opens and nothing happens for those several seconds.  Other than that, the 1.6.* versions open instantly.
