Hi, sorry for reposting the same problem but i'd like your help again.

on my work workstation pc i've already installed from source the below:


and xfce-core from git

Thunar has gio library:

[ebal at mywork ~]€ ldd /usr/local/bin/Thunar | grep gio => /usr/local/lib/ (0xb78d7000)

[ebal at mywork ~]€ ldd /usr/local/lib/ =>  (0xb7fc3000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0xb7ec2000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0xb7ebe000) => /lib/ (0xb7eba000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0xb7dd8000) => /lib/ (0xb7dc3000) => /lib/ (0xb7c7d000)
	/lib/ (0xb7fc4000)

[ebal at mywork ~]€ ldd /usr/local/lib/ =>  (0xb8079000) => /lib/ (0xb7e38000)
	/lib/ (0xb807a000)

but i am keep getting this error:

Unable to contact the Xfce Trash service.
Make sure you have a file manager installed that supports the Xfce Trash

from xfdesktop, and it doesnt seem that thunar (or gigolo) have gvfs support

Plz advice
