Every time I reboot my system, Thunar loses its settings for view, window dimensions, column widths, etc, and reverts to its installation defaults.

I'm on Ubuntu 13.10 64bit, Thunar 1.6.3.

Is there a way to make it remember its settings?

Looking and asking around, at the end I found the error: I didn't have permissions to acces the folder ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml.

So, to be sure that the files and folders have the correct permissions, I executed this commands:

chmod 755 $HOME/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml

At the restart all work properly.

EDIT: Recursively chmod'ing /home/username to 755 as a whole is potentially dangerous, especially on multi-user machines! There are various files and folders within your $HOME that are and should be readable only to your own user. Hence the edit to chmod only the relevant directory.
