i wanted to change the icons in /usr/local/share/xfe/icons/windows-theme
but thumbnails are only shown for those 10 files that actually lie in that folder, the others are linked to ../xfe-theme and no thumbnail is shown (but the ugly chain icon instead)
i'd suggest using the original icon anyway, and just overlay a small arrow for links, like its done in the windows explorer.
this way also a link to a folder would look in a consistent way.
btw, great work !

Discussion

  • see the chains everywhere instead the thumbnails, and the tmp link at the bottom - ugly, isnt it ? would look much better with a default folder icon and the small arrow icon at the corner.

    I second this, xfe is really a great file manager, it has many features other light filemanagers like thunar and pcmanfm don't have (split view, filtered view...). This is the main point that I think could be improved : displaying link the same way the file/directory it points to, with some sign on it to show it's a link.
