Does anyone know why thunar keeps coming back? Like, do I have a ghost in my laptop? I kill it. Put a stake through its heart. Double check gslapt. Its not installed. But Thunar still lurks somewhere in the innards of my computer. Only reason I don't like it is that the "open terminal here" button doesn't work. Pcmanfm's does. So I only need pcmanfm. But no. Do I get pcmanfm? No! I get thunar. When I need to open a terminal in that directory, I have to open pcmanfm, go back to the directory and then open the terminal.
Practically, this problem comes up when using Note Taking Simplified (nts), Dan Graham's wonderful python based note taking program. The user can either use a master note, with different subjects, or, as I do, put separate nts files in each directory in question. So I go to the directory in question, try to open a terminal and then realize I am in thunar. A program I have killed. Then have to open pcmanfm, navigate to the directory, and then open a terminal which lets me open the notes file.
