why can't i get THUNAR file manager?

Postby dduran1210 » Mon Jun 19, 2017 2:23 pm

tried in Mint Cinnamon (latest version) and trying now in Mint Mate 18.1 also. get this error message:

E: Failed to fetch http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/upst ... _amd64.deb Temporary failure resolving 'packages.linuxmint.com'
E: Failed to fetch http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/upst ... _amd64.deb Temporary failure resolving 'packages.linuxmint.com'
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

tried synaptic...and software center.....both zero !

is this a BUG?

anybody else have this problem?

Hi "dduran1210",

First, the Thunar file manager is for the "Xfce" desktop environment, but I would think it would install and work in other Linux Mint versions as well.

Second, have you tried changing your default Mirror servers in the Mint Update Manager to ones other than the default ones, which might help?

Also there are a few really great file manager options available, what specifically is it that you like about Thunar that is not in the default file manager of Cinnamon (Nemo), or Mate (Caja)? There are a few in the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" as well.

- Click link below, click Download, click Linux Mint, save the easy to install ".deb" file, then double click it to install it, if it does not install automatically...

Hope this helps ...
