View Full Version : [xubuntu] Opening multiple files in thunar with "Enter"

February 8th, 2013, 06:25 PM
I often need/want to open multiple files of the same kind, for example a bunch of PDF files.
in nautilus or nemo I got used to selecting all files and then press "Enter": all files are opened.
When I do the same thing in thunar 1.2.3 it will only open the most recently selected file.

Right mouse click and "Open" works.
Is this a bug or a desired behavior? In the latter case, where can I enter a feature request?

I wonder if this is a bug or a feature. I for one accidentally hit Enter a few times in the past while using Nautilus (or Windows Explorer) and was not too pleased with the result, especially when an entire directory of files was selected. It can quickly bring a machine to its knees. The two-click method could be a safety measure.

Anyways, you can file bugs and requests for Thunar at https://bugzilla.xfce.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=Thunar
