    replace pcmanfm

    This is an openbox with a minimal/lxde install.In openbox,I've got the gnome-panels installed.And although I changed nautilus with thunar (gksu gedit /usr/share/applications/nautilus-folder-handler.desktop),replaced pcmanfm with thunar, the files still open with pcmanfm.So I need to know how I can make this work.It wasn't a prob with openbox on a gnome-core so I guess I have to edit something in lxde.
    Kind regards,J.

    in gconf-editor, click "edit"-> "find", type "nautilus"
    go through there & change them to the file manager you want.

    are you running the lxpanel at all?
    cause under advanced it has settings for file manager. see pic

    Hi kerry.Well,allready changed everything to thunar like I would if this were to be a gnome install.Unfortunately I replaced the lxpanel with a gnome one in lxde.I replaced pcmanfm by thunar as lxpanel manager.I probably didn't do it wright though.Not sure how I had to do it.But,if I get it wright,even the gnome panels under lxde will be managed by pcmanfm and not nautilus?Could you give me the wright command for the lxpanels manager?Would that be thunar%S

    Any particular reason you prefer Gnome's panel over LXDE's?

    Say W.This is strange,no matter how I change settings,places will open with pcmanfm instead of thunar.Oh yeah,did a fresh install using lxde now.I allready have about 90% installed all my stuff and it's about 2Gb.

    I'll bet allot of that is left over packages.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove

    Re: replace pcmanfm

    you can do a override script. /usr/local/bin is checked before /usr/bin for the executables, i use it to override a couple of things, a simple script can make any call to pcmanfm launch thunar.

    press-> alt+f2
    type-> gksudo leafpad /usr/local/bin/pcmanfm
    put:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    thunar "$@" &
    make it executable-> chmod +x /usr/local/bin/pcmanfm
