View Full Version : [xfce] sort files by extension in Thunar?

December 7th, 2009, 01:18 PM

is it possible to sort files by extension in Thunar? I know it can sort by "Type", but this is definitely not what I want, because:

many files end up as "plain text document"
some extensions get sorted in unexpected ways (.log becomes "application log"), making them difficult to find

(The optimal thing, as far as I can tell, would be to have custom columns in Thunar. In this way, one could have (and be able to sort by) not only extension, but also ID3 tags for music and EXIF data for pictures .. but that is probably too much to ask for?)
