            Bug ID: 13648
           Summary: RFE: Please add a configuration option to show
                    username for owner in detailed view
    Classification: Xfce Core
           Product: Thunar
           Version: 1.6.11
          Hardware: PC (x86_64)
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

Details (as copied from downstream bug report)

Passwd contains the fields:

    Username: It is used when user logs in. It should be between 1 and 32
characters in length.
    User ID Info: The comment field. It allow you to add extra information
about the users such as user’s full name, phone number etc. This field use by
finger command.


It appears that Thunar shows in the column owner the "User ID Info" followed by
the Username in paranthesis. This can be very usefull for a lot of scenario's.

However, I would greatly prefer that Thumar just shows the Username. The reason
is that all command line utilities, like ls, show the Username by default. I'm
quite sure that a lot of linux users will appreciate this conformity.

Therefor, I suggest to make a configuration option by which the linux standard
can be enforced, i.e. showing passwd Username.
