[wishlist] Thunar innovations (Rename, USB Flash Properties, Image viewer)


Description User2020 2020-04-30 14:28:34 CEST
Created attachment 9822 
Rename folder/file in Ubuntu (Unity)


If this is possible, please implement the following innovations in the future release of the Thunar:

1) Make Renaming file/folder in the File Manager Thunar like Renaming in Nautilus (File Manager), in Ubuntu (Unity). To make it clear, that the file/folder is renamed directly on the file, and NOT in a NEW WINDOW! The image is attached;

2) Make USB Flash Properties in the File Manager Thunar like USB Flash Properties in Nautilus (File Manager), in Ubuntu (Unity). The pie chart clearly shows how much free space there is on the flash drive. Please add a circle diagram:

3) In Ubuntu I can open folder with pictures. For example in folder there is 10 pictures. I mark two images and press Enter. Open "The GNOME Image Viewer", and by clicking the arrow button I will see only these two pictures which I selected earlier! Now we will do the same in File Manager Thunar. The Image viewer will start, and clicking the arrow button I will see ALL (10) pictures! But I want the program to show me only two selected photos, and not all the photos that are in this folder!

I apologize for my poor English.

Thanks for the suggestions. If you would like to see these features in Thunar, the best way to make that happen is to submit patches implementing them, if you are able to.

For number (2), the Properties dialog already displays the amount of free vs used space with a bar graphic. Is there any particular reason you feel that a pie chart would be better?

Number (1) was addressed in bug 3468 and could be reopened.

Number (3) is actually bug 2487 which was fixed recently.

For (1) Theo reopened the related bug
For (2) There is as well Bug #5901
(3) Got fixed meanwhile so I will just close this bug.

Next time, please open 3 separate bugs !

Personally I wouldn't have reopened bug 3468, feels like bringing the dead back to life for bad reasons.

Bug #16781
