How can I disable a redundant menu item in Thunar?
I am just trying to configure Thunar in LXDE oneiric (I use nautilus in natty which works very well but not in oneiric). Pcmanfm still handles the desktop, and I have set a custom Thunar action "set as wallpaper" with the command

pcmanfm --set-wallpaper %f

which works when right-clicking image files but I also get a redundant "set as wallpaper" entry which does not work and which I did not create. Is there an xml file somewhere to edit to get rid of it, or is this behaviour hardcoded? I do not wish to install the entire XFCE environment (I heart openbox).

I'd recommend you go snooping around your home directory. Look in ~/.config/Thunar/thunarrc for example.
(find similar for pcmanfm)

Thank you, but if it were something like this I'd have found it already. The corresponding file for Nautilus was in /usr/share/nautilus/ui, but there is nothing useful in /usr/share/Thunar. To be sure it is not a very serious problem, but I hate it when I can't customize everything.

The tilde '~' is your home folder. so it would be

/home/[your login name here]/.config/Thunar/thunarrc
To see the hidden files and directories in your home folder, press Ctrl+h
This works in most file managers including Thunar.
Nautilus is a bit more complicated, but it would also have user specifig configuration settings somewhere in the home folder!

Are you kidding??????????

When I install the full XFCE environment the original menu entry works. So the code to execute it resides in xfdesktop instead of thunar where it belongs. I have filed a bug report.
