I don’t like the new Gnome either. I had been enjoying Gnome but after 3 was released I swapped back to Xfce.

However, one app which is inexplicably hardcoded to work with Nautilus is Dropbox.

I followed a quick guide here to get it working with Thunar but it kept giving me an error:

Thunar: Unknown option --no-desktop

Taking a look at the suggested wrapper script we see:

exec thunar $@

It’s passing thunar multiple options. So, a quick bit of trial and error gives us:

exec thunar $2
