Is there a way to configure Thunar so that folders will respond to left mouse clicks more predictably? Can the sensitivity or the time-between-clicks that it demands be adjusted?
Using Fedora Core 16 and 17, In both Xfce 4.8 and 4.10, I find the way that Thunar responds to left mouse clicks on folders to be irregular. Sometimes a double click opens a folder ( in the window where the lowest level directories are displayed). Sometimes it does nothing on the first pair of clicks and works when I try again. Perhaps there is a time delay in how it responds or my dexterity is lacking. However, I haven't had this problem with Nautilus using Fedora Core 12.
See if this helps: http://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-settings/mouse >>> look for the section titled Double Click
Thank you. Adjusting Applications Menu->Settings->Mouse and Touchpad-Behavior did help.
