How to change your Xubuntu file manager

On Xubuntu, the default file manager is okay, but sometimes you may want to change the defaults.

sudo apt-get update -y
sudo apt-get install -y caja && sudo apt-get install -y exo-utils

If all goes well, we've installed caja (an alternative file manager), and installed the exo-utils program. Lastly, we run exo-preferred-applications. This opens a new window. Click on the 'Utilities' tab and change Thunar to Caja.
