What file can I edit, or gconf key, so that when I insert a USB memory stick drive, it loads Thunar instead of Nautilus? I use Thunar now instead of Nautilus because it's zippier. (BTW, I even use it on my fast machine at the office too.)

I have Ubuntu Breezy.

I tried searching for this a bit, but haven't found much yet. However, freezombie was diging though gconf-editor and a way to do this may be to change "nautilus" in /desktop/gnome/applications/component_viewer to "thunar".

The description of that setting says

Quote:

"The application to use for viewing files that require a component to view them. The parameter %s will be replaced by the file's URIs, the parameter %c will be replaced by the component IID."

Hopefully that might be of some help.

doesn't thunar include a volume manager (that could replace gnome-volume-manager) ?
to tell you the trouth, I don't think you'll have much luck with gnome-volume-manager here.

Aha! Check the volume manager. I'll give that a try. Didn't think of that.
