Thunar -- Custom actions

Introduction

Thunar has a selection of extensions that allows users to create custom actions that can extend its functionality. These actions operate on files and folders found within Thunar and can do anything from bulk-renaming to running specialized scripts. The MX Linux devs created many useful ones that show up in the context menu, but users can easily create their own.

Explanation

Parameters

Tumbler cpu usage

<Retrieved from the Arch Wiki December 1, 2016>

Tumblerd, the service that watches the file system and notifies the system when a thumbnail needs to be made may get stuck in a loop, see the bug report. The following script is a temporary workaround to stop this from happening. Copy, and paste this into a .sh file, save it somewhere in your home directory, mark the file as executable then set up the system to autostart it at system startup.

Users Manual -- translations

The Users Manual is produced by the MX Linux Community in American Standard English. It can be converted to another language using the Google Translate pull-down menu, which provides a basic translation which, though useful, is often difficult to understand.

Community members are working on correcting these machine translations (THANKS!), beginning with Sections 1 (Introduction) and 3 (Configuration). This page keeps track of the completed Sections by language.
