[Solved] Can you open more than one folder in Thunar from an icon?

Hi!

I've got Xubuntuu on my desktop and I was pretty happy when Thunar was updated so you could open more than one directory in a Thunar window.

One thing I wanted to do, though, was use a desktop icon to open one Thunar window with two seperate direcotry tabs I go into rather often.  I couldn't figure out how to do this.  The following code is what I tried, but what it does is open one one window per directory:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Jobs &c
Comment=Open job hunting files
Icon=~/.extra-icons/Linux-Unite.png
Exec=/usr/bin/thunar "~/Dropbox/Employment/Resumes/" "~/Dropbox/Employment/cover letters/"
Terminal=false
Type=Application

While it does work, and save me opening two directories seperately, it wasn't quite what I wanted.  Does anyone know if it's possible to rewrite this, so that Thunar opens both directories in two tabs inside one window, instead of just opening two seperate windows?

Thanks in advance, if anyone can help me out there!

I didn't know if I made that desktop call of Thunar properly, or if there was an omission with the latest version of Thunar.

Thanks, though.

The latest version supports tabs, so if the user prefers tabs i guess it makes sense to open multiple arguments in tabs, not new windows.
