RTSL, I think this is where everyone starts.

When you copy or cut files, and then you right click on a directory,
you will see "Paste in directory".  Also, Thunar provides a plugin by
default that is Custom Actions with a default action as example that
is "Open Terminal Here".  Sounds like you have it miss-installed...

For information about the custom actions checkout the documentation at

No clue.
