Package qubes-core-agent-thunar is installed.


Any idea why these are missing? @marmarek

I cannot reproduce. I've installed qubes-template-whonix-15-4.0.1-201905241112, updated it with qubes testing repository enabled and I see all the actions available in thunar.
But I do see some warnings on thunar's stderr, like this:

(Thunar:27375): Gtk-WARNING **: 01:41:41.317: Refusing to add non-unique action 'uca-action-1507455450991127-4' to action group 'ThunarActions'

Looks like actions are added multiple times to /etc/xdg/Thunar/uca.xml, which is later copied to /home/user/.cnfig/Thunar/uca.xml. Relevant code in

Work for me too in new build

It might not work in upgraded builds since thunar was started before qubes-core-agent-thunar was ever installed. Cannot reproduce anymore.

What is the contents of your /home/user/.config/Thunar/uca.xml? @TNTBOMBOM (only relevant for VMs where this is an issue)
