What i would like to know, if there's anyway to disable thunar in Xubuntu 13.10 from displaying the full name of folders, as with long names it increases the spacing between lines of folders, sometimes for a third of the screen space. Is it possible to have something like nautilus has, fixed spacing between rows, and full name of folder showing upon hovering over the folder?

I offer you a screenshot of odd spacing and big gaps between rows of folders.

Thank you for your link. Sorry to know there's no fix for it whatsoever. –  holden Dec 30 '13 at 13:40
Well, I'm used to the detailed list view. I don't really use the icon view at all. –  user25656 Dec 30 '13 at 13:42
