Re: Desktop items

Hi man,

even if is often hard to understand you for a non english person (you know, you use your language like a slang smile ), it seems that about the first two questions, there's nothing wrong on it! It's normal, it's the xfce policy and its desktop management.. If you search the forum you'll easily find similar question..

Speaking of your third question, I must admit that I've not understand the problem: what version of thunar are you using? I'm using xfce 4.6.1 and my version of thunar is 1.0.1, but I've never updated something..

Re: Desktop items

Hello smile

1.) You should get a Context Menu that looks like so with Desktop Icons enabled (file/launcher icons), this only works in 4.6 iirc.  You might have to goto Settings-> Desktop-> Icons and change the Icon type from "File/launcher icons" to "None" and then back to "File/launcher icons".

2.) as of 4.6, xfdesktop also supports "rubber band" selection

3.) the latest of Thunar official version is 1.0.1 as brain)(vision mentioned smile

For 1 and 2 it should like you just might be using Xfce 4.4?

Re: Desktop items

Yeah, he's using 4.4 in debian stable. He should look into either upgrading to testing or unstable, or backporting 4.6 to stable, after fixing your apt priorities and adding testing/sid to your sources.list.
