Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

is this a new behaviour of the program? which version of Slackware are you using? Did you run any upgrades before?
I had similar problems with pan. It helped to rebuild it, I used the slackbuild-script from the sources-directory.
i'm running slackware 13.73 yes it's new behavior and i have upgraded "glib" package and it's dependencies.
EDIT: i don't intend to rebuild Thunar from slackbuild, and if i Thunar problem still exist,i can use "dolphin" instead but i dont know how to make dolphin default file manager under xfce wm.
as I see you couldn't yet solve the problem. I'd recommend (again) to simply rebuild the package for thunar. You will simply have to download the packages from your local Slackware-mirror from the sources-directory. ftp://sunsite.informatik.rwth-aachen...thunar-volman/
Then create a directory in /tmp, for example /tmp/build-thunar/ and move the downloaded files into the directory. Be sure to make the Slackbuild-script executable with
chmod 755 thunar-volman.Slackbuild
and then execute the script as root.
You will finde the package in the /tmp directory and can install with
As I wrote above, in a similar case this helped me when pan crashed.
