Desktop icon : double-click > single-click

Postby Deevad on Mon Apr 13, 2009 3:22 pm

Hello,

After a very enthusiast and successful install of Linux Mint 6 Xfce for my mother's wife on an old computer, I'm actually try to thin customize it for her needing of accessibility.
She prefer single click, and it was easy to configure on Thunar, the file explorer.
But , how to setup a single click on the desktop icons ?
Thanks a lot for the future answer !

( PS : Good job to the team ! I love Linux Mint ! now I advice it everywhere, my favorite distribution for Gnome/KDE/Xfce )
EDIT 17/04 : I replace all the error "simple click" with "single Click"

I'm not sure what you mean by simple click you mean single click so when you click on it once it opens?

Thanks Joejc for the reply,

Sorry for my bad english, I wanted to say "single"-click (instead of simple click ).
I edit the main thread subject name to change this error.

After some googleing I've discovered that the desktop icons aren't controlled by thunar they are controlled by gtk and that doesn't support single click, maybe you could try another file browser like nautilus and hope it takes control over the desktop icons.

Thanks a lot for your research about Thunar,
I will keep thunar and just learn her, the right click method , and after in the menu "open" ; it's more simple cause she already learn thunar.
I will try to note it on the XFCE forum, to have a fix on next release.
Thanks again.
