    Hmm but there's nothing about PCManFM... Only Thunar, Konqueror and Krusader

    That's why I stated it would provide guidance. The techniques there should be applicable to your situation, even though it is not specifically covered. Perhaps someone else reading the thread has accomplished what you are trying to do, and can chime in.

    Have you tried searching the forums to see if there might be a thread or two on the issue? I'd use the advanced search feature, and use PCManFM as the search criterion, to get you the broadest possible results.
