  2. Dear all,

    excellent news! How do I remove the old thunar in the cleanest possible way? Otherwise I cannot install the following xfce-4.12 dev packages:

    The following packages have been kept back:
    exo-utils
    libexo-1-0
    libthunarx-2-0
    thunar
    thunar-data
    xfce4-settings
