In Xubuntu you can select multiple files, right-click, click
rename, and it will open a really useful interface for mass renaming files. Can this be installed and used on other desktops like Gnome/Unity/MATE/etc?
I like it better than any other file renamer I've tried, partially because it integrates with right-click unlike any others I've tried. I also like XFCE, but there are several bugs in Xubuntu and/or XFCE that I keep running into that have forced me away from it.
Is the renaming function a program that can be installed separately, or is it an integrated feature of XFCE so it can't be used without? Thank you.
Edit: So apparently it's a Thunar plugin I guess? But is Thunar or its plugins inextricably linked to XFCE?
