Hello Tim,
No, you read that page correctly, Thunar 1.8.x is aligned with Xfce 4.14
and came out a bit too early.
You have the following options:
- Wait for Xfce 4.14 to update Thunar
- Update Thunar and use xfdesktop 4.12, the only known downside is to lose
custom action on desktop context menu, e.g. Open Terminal Here.
- Update Thunar and use xfdesktop 4.13.2, a development release, but it's
stable enough for daily usage, if you're a brave user, of course I'm not
endorsing it to packagers.
