[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#451142: xfce4-places-plugin: Places plugin should either depend on thunar or offer to use another file manager

Package: xfce4-places-plugin
Version: 0.9.991-1
Severity: important

When you don't have thunar package installed, and try to use Places plugin, opening the directories doesn't 
work (it doesn't do anything). Opening it up in a terminal works.

I think Places plugin should either depend (or suggest) thunar then, or offer an option to choose another file 
manager (e.g. nautilus). Briefly: Places plugin without thunar is quite useless.
