gnome-mount


I'm running Slack 13.37 with LXDE desktop. Whenever I insert a cd or thumb drive I get the error "Failed to execute child process "gnome-mount" (No such file or directory)".

The disks do mount in Thunar or Dolphin, etc so it really is not causing any problems.

How can I prevent the error message appearing?

It seems LXDE is configured to execute gnome-mount when a disk is inserted, however either your system lacks the package or such command does not exist at all.
You could play around with the environment settings trying to setup the action differently.
I cannot be more specific on that as I don't use LXDE myself.

Good luck.

Thanks for the input. I'm not sure what to change either. I will install programs if necessary, but I would prefer editing whatever file is necessary to stop the system from calling gnome-mount. I wouldn't know what all I would have to install to get gnome-mount. I don't use gnome and would prefer not having to install it.

it (pcmanfm should be the one managing automounts) shouldn't use that: are you using a slackware full install?

udisks/udisks2/udevil should be used...

First, yes I have a full install of Slackware. How (where) do I change the auto-mounter?

how did you installed LXDE on your slackware 13.37?
have you built it yourself or have you used prebuilt packages (in this case which ones)?

I built it with sbopkg. As a matter of fact Ponce, I think I used your sgf file.

I will have to check when I get home. I'm not sure if I still have it. I did the install shortly after 13.37 became available. Yes, I know, I just finally got tired of seeing the error.

It seems to me you're missing some packages: these are the prebuilt ones I prepared at the time

Thank you Ponce. I'll check the list and see what is missing.

After going through the list I found GConf and ORBit missing. However, after installing the two packages I find I still get the error. Is there a way to tell my system not to look for gnome-mount?

I think it's not enough to install them: you should rebuild gvfs and libfm/pcmanfm later on with those installed.

if rebuilding of gvfs -> libfm -> pcmanfm doesn't work, I suggest you to try two things:

- upgrade your packages with the ones I provided;

- if that still isn't enough, try creating a new user and see if the problem persists.

as this is the first report I got of this error, I'm inclined to think that this problem is specific of your installation.

I'm sure the problem is with my installation.

Is there a way to tell my system not to try using gnome-mount?

If not I will continue to live with the error message until such time as I upgrade to the most recent Slackware. At this point I don't want to try re-installing everything on a system that I plan to upgrade with new equipment and the latest version off Slack.

I do appreciate your input and assistance however.
