  1. I really love this. I'm using XFCE desktop environment now(Ubuntu Studio). Do you know of a way to make this work in that environment? I don't think XFCE uses Nautilus.

  2. Hi Anthony! I'm using XFCE too (with Xubuntu).
    You can install Nautilus in your system and use it:
    sudo apt-get install nautilus
    I was thinking in integrate it with Thunar, but I have to think more :P
    Best regards and thanks for your feedback!
