sorry i got no idea how the defaults are done in xubuntu or xfce (should be exo-something).

Its exo-preferred-applications, Utilities -> File managers ->Other and find the path to marlin (/usr/bin/marlin). That works for shortcuts on bottom panel, but not for everything else.

One could create a link of /usr/bin/marlin to /usr/bin/thunar, that way the Places menu will open marlin, not the desktop folders though. (And yes, this is not even a workaround, but just a cheap hack.)

Can you help with this problem?
