A bit Outdated

The wiki page is a bit outdated, nothing serious though. I'll fix once I get some free time, unless somebody is faster than me. Untill then: tha base package has changed, it includes tumbler and thunar-volman.

I fixed the thunar-volman issue, by editing the Removable Devices section. Liquen (talk) 21:16, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Archiver Installing

When installing xfce onto a fresh Arch system, one of the programs in the xfce-goodies package (might be thunar-archiver-plugin or something along those lines) requires the additional installation of a archiving program such as xarchiver or ark etc. Perhaps this is worth a note? hozza (talk) 07:37, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

I second this. When you install thunar-archive-plugin, a post-install message is printed out stating that you should "please install xarchiver, squeeze, file-roller or ark to use the plugin". Not everyone pays attention to those messages (myself included, sometimes), and it seems reasonable to repeat the message in the wiki. Anyone else? Ichimonji10 (talk) 02:07, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Well, we already have Thunar#Thunar Archive Plugin. In my opinion that's enough, but let's wait for more responses. -- Kynikos (talk) 15:08, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Aaaah. Yes, I agree: Thunar#Thunar Archive Plugin is enough, and there's no need to repeat information. In fact, the Xfce#Thunar_not_displaying_Thumbnail_Images section now seems unnecessary. Ichimonji10 (talk) 07:51, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Oh yeah, Xfce#Thunar_not_displaying_Thumbnail_Images is clearly redundant and could be removed. -- Kynikos (talk) 06:45, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Section removed. I also added an Xfce#Installation tip suggesting that users read the Thunar wiki page if they want niceties such as archive extraction, but did not install xfce4-goodies. I think this discussion has acheived it's goal. Unless anyone has something to add, I will close the discussion in a couple days. Ichimonji10 (talk) 15:21, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
