yes, it displays the pseudo file names using the metadata
I like it this way, but it's a matter of preferences

try to have a look on System > Preferences > File Management window

Slackware 64 Current Multilib XFCE + Salix + Mate > caja 1.8.1-x86_64-1_msb
PartedMagic 2-14_04_28 [LXDE] + caja 1.8.1-i486-1_msb

Setting X-MATE-AutoRestart=false in /usr/share/applications/caja.desktop did resolve the caja spawning multiple windows problem for me from previous versions onwards. I only have to set it back to true and start a new caja instance to see the problem back in action.
Is this caused by XFCE/LXDE or is the fix as mentioned on Apr 25 not working?
Regards, Dick

caja-1.8.1 should have fixed the problem, without having to change anything on caja.desktop file

Exactly. Except the developers don't provide users any choice.

Thanks. Did not work for me. I set the background to black and added the snippet to the user's gtkrc. The fonts stayed at a light black rather than white. The odd thing is when I make a change to the desktop the fonts all change to white. Next login the fonts are black again.

Mate has a panel applet to run applications, same as the Alt+F2 keyboard shortcut. What app is actually being run? I want to add the 'Run Application' command to the menu rather than the panel.

Bug report: There is a typo in the mate.desktop sym link in kdm/xsessions. The link is for mate.dekstop rather than mate.desktop.

Try

Code:
/usr/bin/trigger-panel-run-dialog
There's actually a desktop file: /usr/share/applications/trigger-panel-run-dialog.desktop that shows that the application is hidden in the menu.

Code:
...
Exec=/usr/bin/trigger-panel-run-dialog
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Icon=system-run
Hidden=true
Categories=Application;System;
OnlyShowIn=MATE;
StartupNotify=true

Yes, this is fixed in master branch already but not ported back to 14.1-mate-1.8 branch

No luck. I removed the Hidden key and no Run Application option appeared in the menu.

The executable
Code:
/usr/bin/trigger-panel-run-dialog
does work, the "Run Application" pops up when I run it from the terminal. If you remove this line from the desktop file in addition to the "Hidden" line, then an entry appears in the menu (in System tools).

Code:
OnlyShowIn=MATE;

Hallo Willy,

Could you create the caja-dropbox package for mate 1.8? You can find the source code here: https://github.com/mate-desktop/caja-dropbox

Thanks

caja-dropbox and docutils are now added into master branch
You still need to have dropbox package though
