View Full Version : [xubuntu] Single Click XFCE Desktop Icons, Xubuntu 9.10

December 5th, 2009, 03:17 AM
I am using Xubuntu 9.10 64bit.

I can single click files in Thunar just fine. But I want to do this with my desktop icons and I can't seem to find where to change it from double click to single click. Is there a way to do this?

Hey 3k,
What you want to do is single-click to open desktop shortcuts?
Well, hate to tell you this, but thats not something you can do without editing some desktop/Thunar configuration files. This, I do not know how to do. Here is my reccomendation to you. Head over to the assistive technology forum (http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=145), and post a more detailed problem description there.

Thanks. It has been awhile since I used XFCE, so use to Gnome or KDE, lol.
