Changing default file transfer program [Thunar/Nautilus]
 
Ive got a linux mint setup, with gnome 3.
Code:

#####@####-laptop ~ $ apt-cache show gnome-shell | grep Version
Version: 3.2.0-0ubuntu1
Version: 3.2.2.1-0ubuntu0.1

Ive also installed LXDE and XFCE to mess about with those desktop environments.

The thing is, im happy using nautilus as my default file manager, but whenever I plug in my Nexus S android smartphone, and access it as a storage device, and when I transfer something onto the phone, the thunar file manager transfer bar appears instead of the gnome one. How can I use the default nautilus file transfer bar ?


Additional Information :

Code:

###@####-laptop ~ $ lsb_release -a

Bump ?

Uninstalling Thunar should work... (Or maybe the whole DM package depends on it; be careful.)
Have you looked into update-alternatives? It tells the system which program you want to use. I suspect it uses the default when copying files. Otherwise it's a setting of Gnome.

Okay, this is a REALLY really late BUMP, but if I were to try to uninstall thunar, I would need to get rid of XFCE (Which I dont want to). Is there any way to remove thunar and not XFCE, or how can I go to the default file transfer manager settings ?

Uninstalling the meta-package named XFCE, and keeping all of it's dependencies (i.e. the actual programs with their packages), should work... I'd use aptitude in interactive mode just to be sure.
I assume you have looked into update-alternatives. This governs which program is used for certain actions.
It has come to my attention there is a .gtkrc-2.0 and other rc files that actually tell gtk directly how some objects should look. I'm not sure if the difference between the two status bars you mention is only cosmetic or also functional. If it's only cosmetic, it may very well be that one of these gtk rc files is the 'culprit'; your dialog wouldn't actually be that of thunar, it would just have the standard XFCE looks.
