I have discovered another technique to use custom icons with Thunar.

Just make file named "/root/.gtkrc.mine" and move your custom settings
over from the "/root/.gtkrc-2.0" file.

When you select a new GTK theme. The .gtkrc-2.0 file will be rewrittien,
but the .gtkrc.mine file will stay the same.

I discovered this when I installed GrumpyWolfe's thunar pet in Lighthouse Pup.

Nice! I was going to make a simple script to switch themes instead
of manually editing the .gtkrc.mine file, but LXAppearance is way better.

Thanks alexandrion!

And thank you Barry for the thunar-w5 pet.
Both will be great additions to a new puplet that I'm working on.

@ difedepe
Take an look at these links but rox is built in.
It sounds like if you don't use rox for icons - theses should work.

I have tested this .pet (from the wary5 repo at ibiblio) and works in precise, but when I try to delete a file it crashes. If I open thunar again I do see the files in the trash and empty the trash does not crash. It would be great to have this pet fully functional for precise and slacko.

Subject description: when creating directories and moving files
 

Similar problem here. Thunar worked perfectly on Lucid 525 and 528, but crashes on Precise 5.5 and 561.

It also dies after creating a new directory or moving a file. The operation seems to succeed, I haven't seen any disk corruption, but Thunar crashes after it's done.

The console window prints this error when Thunar crashes after creating a directory:

GLib (gthread-posix.c): Unexpected error from C library during 'pthread_cond_timedwait': Invalid argument. Aborting.

When moving a file or deleting to the trash can, the above message prints, along with another one:

(thunar:17402): Gdk-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_window_get_window_type: assertion 'GDK_IS_WINDOW (window) failed

I've tried 3 different builds:

1. BK's, http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02225 (Barry said it was for Wary but should work in any Puppy, and it did work in Lucid)

2. An official Lucid build, much larger, 4375kb

3. One from May 2010 by technosaurus at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=55921 (350k).

All three crash in Precise.

All three work perfectly in Lucid 5.25 and 5.28.

I tried Ubuntu Thunar 1.2.3 from the Precise PPM. It doesn't crash, but it has other problems.

1. It has no file icons

2. It has an annoying "Warning, you are using the root account, you may harm your system" banner across the top that won't go away

3. With all its dependencies it's a bloaty 15mb.

Can anyone help? Perhaps it's possible to borrow a library from Lucid to give Thunar what it wants on Precise?

Would it be worth trying to build Thunar from source on my own system? I found source for version 1.6 at xfce.org. Maybe that version wouldn't have the same problem (but might have different ones). I don't know how to tell it to use the Rox file icons, as Barry did, but at least I could get rid of the red "warning" banner that way.

Has anyone managed to get Thunar working right in Precise?
