  • Most of the svn action: add, blame, checkout, cleanup, commit, copy, delete, export, import, lock, log, move, properties, relocate, resolved, revert, status, switch, unlock, update.
  • Subversion info in file properties dialog.


In the thunar file/folder view right click on a file ore folder and the context menu pops up showing the SVN sub menu. Choose the appropriate action.

./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable prefix thunarx-1)

For source build from the goodies repository run the following:

./autogen.sh --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable prefix thunarx-1)

Afterwards one of these commands the source is ready to be build and installed. For install root access might be necessary.

make && make install
