            Bug ID: 15811
           Summary: Support for GTK RECENT bookmark broken
    Classification: Xfce Core
           Product: Thunar
           Version: 1.8.7
          Hardware: PC (x86_64)
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: Core
          Assignee: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
          Reporter: catchall at vmc-konstanz.de
  Target Milestone: 1.6.16

Thunar supports a GTK bookmark showing the recently used files, if you have
such a bookmark (you can add it by inserting an entry "recent:/" in
~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks) and click on it in Thunar, it will happily parse
~/local/share/recently-used.xbel and display all the files listed there.

The problem is: if I doubleclick any of the files shown there, Thunar will not
hand out the actual path/filename to whatever external application it is
calling, but "recent:///<SOME_ID>" instead. In other words: the external
application has to support this approach and search recently-used.xbel for the
ID to retrieve the proper filename.

Only very few applications do that, most of them are from the GNOME project
obviously - atril/evince works here, for example. But this seems to be easy to
fix, simply by having Thunar use the proper filename instead of the recent ID?
