Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunar

In Thunar Feisty, it does not respect .hidden files created to hide files and folder that do no begin with a .

Konqueror, Dolphin and Nautilus all support this.

This will mean that the blueprint at https://blueprints.beta.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/hide-filesystem-structure/ becomes irrelevant for Xubuntu. It is also losing quite a nice feature for cleaning up directory views.

This has been tested only with feisty's thunar from the repo's - Thunar 0.8.0

Unfortunately, this still hasn't been implemented in Hardy. Is there any chance of this happening soon? It is quite a useful feature

i'd like to see this feature/function added too.

news? xfce 4.4.6 implements this feature?
konqueror 4.2 don't support .hidden file

Xfce 4.6 is out. Does it support this? It is available in both Jaunty 9.04 and Karmic 9.10. Can you try that version and comment back here?

Marked as won't fix upstream if it's really a spec, this should be implemented in GIO.
