thunar via bash script - howto open several tabs

I want to use a bash script to open several tabs with folders in thunar, but I don't know how to do that.

If I run, e.g.

$ thunar /tmp /usr

two thunar's are started, one with /tmp and one with /usr, instead of one thunar that opens both folders in a tab.

How can I achieve that?

My system: Slackware x86-64, thunar V 1.6.3

Re: thunar via bash script - howto open several tabs

http://docs.xfce.org/xfce/thunar/hidden-settings

shows a hidden setting, /misc-always-show-tabs. I am not sure whether this is only a yes/no option or if the user can add a number and have it show multiple tabs. But, thinking about it, it doesn't seem like an option that would show tabs at all times - but only be able to start up with one tab - would be all that useful, so you might have some luck playing around with it.

Although even if that ended up allowing you to have Thunar start with multiple tabs, it might not allow you to start Thunar with specific directories open in them.

^
This is about if the tabs row should be shown when there is only one open tab at all...
I think setting this hidden settings won't help me with my problem...
