I'm having a problem with permissions on images when I work over sftp with Xfce's Thunar file manager, namely the lack of read permissions, which I've had to use an alternative ftp client (in my case FileZilla) to fix.

I uploaded this photo of myself with GNOME's Nautilus file manager to see if the permissions out of the box were correct in that application.

They are.

I'll have to figure out what's going on with Xfce's Thunar file manager, ftp/sftp and permissions.

Later: I didn't have permission issues in Thunar when uploading a PNG image a couple days ago. Maybe this was a temporary thing? I'll have to upload some more images to test.

Regardless, Thunar has come a long way in recent years.

Even later: I just uploaded a JPG via Thunar, and permissions were fine. Crisis over.
