06. File Management
I’ve done my fair share of tutorials on Thunar, but somehow I missed this. So for the sake of completing what I started, he is a look at “File Sharing with Thunar and SSH on your Local network.”
Sunflower or Sunflower-fm is a filemanager which I just recently submitted a video on. I was contacted by one of the developers. Who let me know that many improvements had come along since then. So, here is a fresh look at the latest offering of Sunflower-fm, version 0.1a-40.
Thunar is the default filemanger for Vectorlinux 7.0. Thunar is pretty easy to use from the get go, but take the time to view this video and you may discover some features that you never new you had to have.

Thunar may be a light file manager compared to some, but it is not light on features. One of my favorite abilities of Thunar is the capability to create custom actions. With Vectorlinux a number of custom actions are provided with the base install. To get you familiar with custom actions, this tutorial will take you through a number of these.
Thunar’s Send-To function is a quick and easy way to create short-cuts, desktop links, or send items to email. It can also be much more, if you learn to customize. In this tutorial we will look at creating a custom Send-To function that will send a .desktop file to usr/share/applications/, so it can be launched from the start menu.
