Starting with version 1.6.5, Thunar will no longer execute a script (with execute permission set) by double-clicking it. Instead the default action is to open the script in the default text editor. There is nothing in the right-click context menu or Thunar Preferences to change this behavior. This was done for security reasons but it can be very annoying for a Python or Perl programmer.
If you would like to revert to the previous default behavior, there is a fix. Open Settings Editor and select Thunar then click New. Enter the following and click Save...
Restart Thunar if it is running for the change to take effect.
For those interested Thunar has other "hidden" settings...
