I am running Desktop Ubuntu 12.04 64bit and have installed rabbitvcs-thunar (through this tutorial). The context menu to perform RabbitVCS operations is working, but the most important feature, status emblems is not. I have none of the visual indicators showing me if a file is changed as shown below when comparing thunar (left) against nautilus (right) in the same folder.
I started Thunar with debug output to see if anything had gone wrong, but it doesn't appear to be the case.

Please note that I already know that this question is very similar to: Thunar doesn't show any RabbitVCS emblems. However, this is for Ubuntu and not Xubuntu and I have the strong impression that this may be lead to the cause of the problem and require a different solution.
