Thunar Shares Plugin

Regarding Thunar Shares Plugin: The version I downloaded (0.2) did not have a PKGBUILD file. I had to follow the README in order to install the plugin. It was pretty easy, just manually ./configure, make and make install and then configure samba the way they describe.

the article says to use the AUR - it never says there is a PKGBUILD file in the upstream release, PKGBUILDs are for making Arch packages. This is where the link points to: Installing things manually with make and make install is probably a bad idea unless you really know what you're doing and can avoid conflicts and do the cleanup yourself. thestinger 11:41, 13 January 2011 (EST)


Note there is a conflict between this page and the Xfce page (for manual starting in ,xinitrc) - on Xfce the page states that ck-launch-session must be before dbus-launch or there will be disk mounting problems. n this page you show dbus-launch before ck-launch-session. So, which is correct? Nevarmaor 22:21, 14 May 2011 (EDT)

Corrected it, ck-launch-session should be put before dbus-launch, you'd better follow the Xfce article for this. -- Kynikos 07:37, 15 May 2011 (EDT)


Isn't Thunar Archive Plugin outdated and unneeded? Should it still be here? Perhaps an explanation about thumbler and ffmpegthumbnailer would be better. Vitorgroter 11:43, 26 July 2011 (BRT)

Why unneeded? It's still in [extra] and an optional dependency for thunar. About tumbler and ffmpegthumbnailer we could update the thunar-thumbnailers section, but it would need a new description... -- Kynikos 08:02, 27 July 2011 (EDT)
