That's always been "almost" the default for me. Before I always used Caja in my XFCE desktop as my default FM because it's the only one that auto-previews media files simply by hovering on them. No other FM does that and it's an awesome feature for making driving & party compilations out of our 500+ converted music CD archive. Auto-Open is the only one that I never set in Thunar, because Caja opens the camera instantly as a USB media device, just like any other USB drive.Jerry3904 wrote:Huh.

I then opened the smartphone and set the USB option to "File Transfer" and now can delete images. I unchecked the option I had enabled, logged out and back in, and can still delete.
Need to try a regular camera next...yup, delete works with my little Canon as well.
I have played with Thunar settings, logging out, logging back in, done everything imaginable ... but Thunar in MX simply does not like my camera. About 1/3 of the time it won't recognize it at all. The other 2/3 of the time, I can use Shotwell to import, followed by removing the pics from the camera afterwards, but it's really irritating. I was hopeful for the first time in years to have only one FM to be content with in my XFCE setup, but I guess with MX I won't have a choice but to try and get Caja imported which shouldn't be a big deal.
The frustrating thing about Caja is that it's no longer a stand-along file manager, ever since Mate 1.2 was released.
So now, importing just the Caja FM also imports most of the additional Mate related apps & desktop.
Hey, here's a thought for the developers (chuckle), how about porting Caja as an additional FM for MX ... without all of the extra baggage? That would be ...
