Screenshot of error

Running Ubuntu 18.04 and have Gnome Desktop installed. Found that it was too
resource hungry for the server and so looked to move to a lightweight desktop
and installed xfce.

The default file manager is Thunar. Problem is, no one can use it to access
their home directory. 

The get the error message (screenshot attached)

Failed to open directory "username".
Error when getting information for file "/home/username/thinclient_drives":
Transport endpoint is not connected.

Nautilus which is still installed does not have this as a problem.

Thunar is 1.6.15 and it says it is the latest version.
