Re: thunar

Your post doesn't make sense. Perhaps you can try re-phrasing it in the form of a question or problem?

Re: thunar

My guess is that the OP wishes to be able to highlight multiple audio files in Thunar, press Enter, and have them play consecutively.

I do not think this is possible, btw, since it doesn't work for me. However, I just learned that I can highlight multiple audio files, right-click one of them, and select one of the "Open with..." options - and they will do so. Which may be good enough, but does appear to require a mouse or comparable device.

Regards,
MDM

In that case, you could create a Thunar custom action like this:

It will load all selected audio files into parole and start playing them. If you want to use another application other than parole, you just need to change the command.

Re: thunar

Does this alleviate the need for a mouse (device)? IOW, right-clicking not necessary? If so, I'll probably end up using that one, myself (thanks!). I assume I can just substitute VLC for Parole.

Re: thunar

MountainDewManiac, just that's what I meant, it's a shame that it can not be done. Otherwise, as you mention, you have to click several times to achieve it. thanks for your answer. smile
