Slackware 11 + Fluxbox + Thunar??
Hey as I said in the title I use Slackware 11.0 and fluxbox. I have no trouble using the xterm for everything, but my girlfriend knows almost nothing about linux and she would like to have a file manager.
I thought about Thunar because it is lightweight, but I downloaded it and it requires some libraries I don't have and don't know how to search.
here's a ss:

slackware users may install the perl-uri ( to solve the first 3 dependencies problem.

you need to install xfce to use it, I think

I just have one problem now:

thunar: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I found the library in /usr/local/lib/

if I "ldd" thunar it says the following:

juboba@juboba:/usr/local/bin$ ldd thunar => (0xffffe000) => not found => not found => not found => /usr/lib/ (0xb7c72000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7c5a000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7bd9000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7bbf000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7ba9000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7b6f000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7b26000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7aec000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7ae7000) => /lib/tls/ (0xb7ad5000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7a4f000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7a46000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7a2e000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7961000) => /lib/tls/ (0xb7831000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7828000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7820000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb781c000) => /lib/tls/ (0xb7818000) => /lib/tls/ (0xb77f5000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb77f0000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb77e8000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb77e5000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb77be000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb77b5000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb77a7000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb77a1000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7768000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb76fe000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb76ec000)
/lib/ (0xb7f80000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb76c6000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb76a5000)

I know that I can make a symbolic link to the file, but HOW DO I KNOW WHERE IT IS LOOKING FOR IT?

problem solved. Anybody know how to personalize icons on thunar?

This is an old post I know, but I had the same problem on slackware 13.1.

As the OP didn't say how he resolved it,
I got it to work after running "/sbin/ldconfig"
