adding usefull custom acions to thunar
« on: February 28, 2007, 08:06:24 am »

hi, since this topic is interesting to me and since i have added lots of actions to thunar, I would like to share some of theones i use and hopefully get feedback on the subject. If you have added custom actions to your thunar, please,share them here!

 :)

here is one way to resize pictures in thunar (like kde's kim) using a bash script to resize and compress many images (not just one)
