A couple of things related to this package

  • This package was upgraded to prevent installing of all file managers (as well as their dependencies), this time it detects the default file manager and then gtkhash package is compiled along with the required file manager extension. Because of this the extensions for the other file managers are excluded in case is not required. If you wish to enable it for more than one file manager you have to edit the PKGBUILD and enable the ones that you required (each line is properly commented to enable the respective file manager)

  • Peony file manager for the UKUI desktop was added to the list and also taken into consideration in the installation part as well as the added extension

  • In case you consider that the file manager desktop entry is not the right one, please leave the comment telling me the name of it as well as the desktop environment associated with it (run the command "xdg-mime query default inode/directory" and show me the output of it so I can add it or change it).

  • In case you need to install gtkhash support for all file managers, edit the PKGBUILD and comment or delete all the conditional except for the last one (which add the support for all file managers). Keep in mind that this will pull the dependencies for all the desktop environment associated with it (I hope that I can create another package for this).

If you have any other issues then write it to upstream on Github, otherwise please use the proper notification channels and report in case is out-of-date

I had to remove the other parts of the pkgbuild and keep gtkhash-thunar, the pkgbuild erroneously tries to build all of the versions for each of the desktop managers and fails

SpectralMemories commented on 2018-09-21 01:27

Hum why do I need to install entire desktop (cinnamon and mate) to install a simple front end? Is this a mistake?

So with the help from user Loqs, we were able to get the package to build and suppress the Thunarx-2 package error. Unfortunately the gtkhash-thunar plugin still no longer appears in Thunar 1.8, even with a rebuild. Here's a link to the forum post discussing the issue: I'd like someone to help in getting the Thunar plugin working again.

Anyone know how to get the Thunar plugin working on the current Thunar version? The hash option has disappeared since the Thunar update.

What about using PKGBUILD for twa022 comment? You can enable which filemanager to use.

twa022 commented on 2017-12-25 17:42

Here's another PKGBUILD: supports thunarx-2 (GTK2 thunar from [extra]) or thunarx-3 (GTK3 thunar: thunar-devel or thunar-git) determinted at build time based on which version you have installed. Also supports specifying filemanager plugins to build.

The plugin works fine with the GTK3 version of thunar, here is a PKGBUILD that supports adjusting the build at compile time depending on installed thunar version:

Works great, thanks so much. To all the people complaining, read the PKGBUILD before compiling. It ain't hard, stop being lazy.

configure: error: Package requirements (thunarx-2) were not met:
No package 'thunarx-2' found

==> ERROR: Se produjo un fallo en build().

@MorningStarGG The maintainer explains in the comments as to why all file managers & dependencies are installed (it's easier for him to maintain). If you use Pamac and have "remove unrequired dependencies" option selected, just install the gtkhash package, go back into Pamac and click just the file managers you do not need (ex: nautilus, nemo, caja) and let Pamac remove all of those & all of the packages that the GTKhash script pulled in. It's a very simple and quick way to install/update this package. Or you can do it via Pacman (ex: sudo pacman -Rs nautilus nemo caja) which will remove those file managers and all the dependencies including the un-needed gtkhash file manager plugins.
