I'm using Xubuntu 12.04 and installed RabbitVCS v0.15.0.5 for Thunar from the PPA. Unfortunately, there are no svn status emblems on my folders in Thunar. I already tried to update the icon cache as explained here.

Did the emblems ever work in Thunar? I'm not really sure, because usually RabbitVCS is used together with Nautilus.

I don't think Thunar supports custom emblems as of yet. – Cumulus007 Aug 1 '12 at 9:55
I am using ubuntu 12.04 (unity) and installed the latest thunar (1.6) with the xubuntu ppas. I have the same problem with thunar not showing the emblems on the folders/files. It does show rabbitvcs in the right-click context menu of options at least. Would love to know the solution – Programster May 27 '13 at 15:03

Did you do this . It says "If you are using the Xubuntu distro, then you probably only have Thunar installed (without Nautilus). Besides rabbitvcs-thunar and rabbitvcs-cli, you also need to install an extra package".

Worked very well for me :)

To make this answer more useful, please indicate exactly which packages you installed in order to solve that issue. – landroni Jan 20 '14 at 18:09
The extra package is thunar-vcs-plugin. Thunar keeps crashing for me with RabbitVCS enabled though. – Cybolic Mar 4 '14 at 12:05
