This question already has an answer here:
I'm on Xubuntu 11.10 and currently trying to use emblems in Thunar to mark which videos in a folder I've already watched.
The problem is I can't find any terminal command to do so and neither can I change the properties of multiple files in Thunar as the context menu item 'properties' is greyed out as soon as I select more than one file.
The command 'gvfs-set-attribute' which works with Nautilus doesn't do anything in Thunar. I guess Thunar stores the meta-data in some other way.
Can anyone tell me how to either set the emblems with a custom command (better solution) or change multiple file properties in Thunar?
