Installing Thunar in gnome causes Nautilus to show a “the location is not a folder” error.
The problem is a thunar dependency called exo-utils.
Removing exo-utils also removes thunar. Some of us need to have both thunar and nautilus installed in gnome:
Since the problem is exo-utils, I have built a thunar .deb without the exo-utils dependency.
Here is how for 64bit:
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/69753654/thunar_1.2.1-3ubuntu2_amd64.deb dpkg-deb -x thunar_1.2.1-3ubuntu2_amd64.deb tmpdir dpkg-deb --control thunar_1.2.1-3ubuntu2_amd64.deb tmpdir/DEBIAN gedit tmpdir/DEBIAN/control
Remove ‘exo-utils’ from the ‘Depends’ line and save
dpkg -b tmpdir thunar_1.2.1-3ubuntu2_amd64-no_exo-utils_dependency.deb sudo apt-get remove exo-utils sudo dpkg -i thunar_1.2.1-3ubuntu2_amd64-no_exo-utils_dependency.deb sudo apt-get -f install
