(included) Thunar Tips

PostPosted by natemaia » Sun Jun 11, 2017 5:49 pm

Just like with pcmanfm we can start thunar in daemon mode (running in the background)
Because thunar is a lightweight file manager this has little impact on boot times. Whatever you set up in thunar volume management settings will happen regardless of whether thunar is currently open or not
Arch Wiki:
Thunar may be run in daemon mode. This has several advantages, including a faster startup for Thunar, Thunar running in the background and only opening a window when necessary (for instance, when a flash drive is inserted), and letting Thunar handle automatic mounting of removable media.

Make sure the command thunar --daemon is autostarted on login.

Add to your autostart
Code: Select all
thunar --daemon &

found in your openbox menu like shown above or ~/.config/openbox/autostart
