Is it possible to get the Caja file manager to work inside Xfce without
wrecking the desktop environment? I tried installing from the Debian
backports repository using Synaptic, and it seemed to work, but a lot of
other things happened which were not wanted. By the bye, Caja has the
very useful "Find file" menu item which seems to be missing from Thunar.
