I don't know if this has been added. From your frustration, I assume not. xubuntu installs nautilus for that. Again, in older version where I am familiar, this generally converted your xfce session into a gnome session. Personally, I never saw the point of xubuntu as you had to load gnome stuff to do any work. Then, instead of a lightweight wm/environment, you had gnome+xfce instead of just gnome when using vanilla ubuntu. Alsio, if running a lightweight desktop is your goal install ubuntu server and then install e17 as your x wm. -- Art Alexion
