Ozo, your drive is NOT FORMATTED. (you created a new partition table but not a new partition) there are instances where drives are locked and can't be accessed but don't know unless you at the least follow instructions in order posted

Re: Thunar file manager causes CPU to max and system hangs

i never used tree view, i like the shortcuts. but just booted mint xfce 18.3 live which has thunar 1.6.11 and both tree and shortcuts work. if there is a bug i have not run into it, you are the lucky one :mrgreen: .

Re: Thunar file manager causes CPU to max and system hangs

yes the permissions are ok, but if i can't see some kind of errors i can't locate the issue and having 5 lines in .xsession-errors is highly irregular which means your system is perfect and has no errors. are you running XFCE desktop?

Re: Thunar file manager causes CPU to max and system hangs

post your .xsession-errors here. (preferably, reboot so you have a fresh xsession, then open thunar and task manager a few times)

Re: Thunar not having option to run scripts

yes thunar has ability to run binary files as executable but double clicking on an example.sh will just open it in text editor not run it. i don't mind it. if i need to run a script i open directory in terminal and drag the script in there.
