Not that I understand apt policies smile

Yeah, the idea of two windows side-by-side is a good one. Would be nice to have KDE-/Compiz-style "snap" functionality to get the two windows the correct size and in the correct position easily smile Nautilus also provides a "split" window view (F3) which gives an "OFM"-style "two-pane" view, with icons/thumbnails if you want, which is also another great way to work I've found.

Re: #! r20111125: Upgrade thunar

^ i understand a bit of your pain. i initially ditched Thunar for pcmanfm because i had some issues with automounting drives in Thunar. the issues went away with pcmanfm, but it didn't feel untuitive to me, it didn't remember my directory-view-settings (or i was doing it wrong?), and then it crashed on me. so i got Thunar back and all the stuff i like, and also the automount-thingy. i'll just solve that in a different way when i know some more.

i really like MC's two-windowed browsing, but i still need to figure out if and how i can select multiple files there etc.

^ Select multiple files in MC? Use "INSERT" to select files, or "+" to select files with a wild-card...?

Re: #! r20111125: Upgrade thunar

Thank you cchhrriiss121212! I was just going to try to figure this out for myself, and you saved me the trouble. Of course I'll have to tweak it now so I can learn a new trick or two smile

Re: #! r20111125: Upgrade thunar

@dubois: thanks for your attempt. that option is on by default, but my issue here has something to do with a regular user not being authorized to mount the volume. i'm still looking into the reasons why this isn't working currently (as i have 'user' set in the mount-options of my fstab for this drive), but i'd rather not hijack this thread for that issue wink

@cchhhhrirriiiiisisiisisss smile wow. thanks for introducing me to Thunar Custom Actions. that will come in useful sometime! suddenly a world of possibilities opens up to me smile

Re: #! r20111125: Upgrade thunar

As promised, I tweaked it a little. If you use

du -chs %N | zenity --text-info

you get the space used by each folder or file selected followed by the total space used.

A little more useful (to me, at least) than just the combined total.

Re: #! r20111125: Upgrade thunar

I built another custom action to create a backup of a selected file:

cp --backup=t %f %f.backup

Call it "Create Backup File Here" -- it creates a file with the original name of the selected file followed by "backup" -- if the backup file already exists, it appends .~n~ to ".backup" where n is the number of the backup.

Disclaimer: I'm new, so there might be an easier way to do this, but it's fun to play with the custom actions in Thunar, and I think I will use this. (You can do it with copy/paste, but then you get "copy of file" "another copy of file" "third copy of file" etc.)

Thanks! I haven't read through the entire thread yet, but I've already added "Permanently Delete" to Thunar.
