Do you think it would be possible to add support to allow folders to
show a custom image over a folder overlay?
For example in windows if you put a file named folder.jpg/png
whatever, when you are looking at that folder from a level up it will
appear as a folder with that image overlapped. Don't know if you have
any experience with that, I will provide a screenshot if you want. I
ask because I have a huge library of music organized in that way and
its nice to see album covers that represent what album is inside the
I would be more than happy to write a plugin if it is possible, I
really don't want to muck around inside core code, is it possible to
write a plugin to achieve this feature?
Also is/will thunar's fileview widget be exposed to external
applications? I ask because I have noticed xfdesktop does not do
rubberbanding, and it would merge two almost identical sets of code
(willing to do some work but need guidance).
BTW best desktop environment bar-none, seriously everything is so nimble
