Slackware 14 Thunar not Automounting
 
I am a member of the plugdev group, but thunar will not automount USB plugins after upgrading to 14.

Thunar does not automount on my Slackware 14 since I went into Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Configure -> Storage and deselected 'Mount removable drives when hotplugged'.

I already know about that. Ive been using Thunar for some time. I even have my own custom actions such as "open terminal in this directory".

Is fdisk not installed by default on slackware? My system says fdisk not installed.

edit: oh, it can only be run under su, not sudo.

Are you saying that it has never worked or that it has stopped working?

It stopped working. I have often opened thunar and seen my mp3 player or camera automounted.

So what have you changed? Have you changed kernels, installed software, removed packages?

I upgraded to slackware 14. I am looking at the mounts. I can found my cameraphone mounted with fdisk, but it is not showing up in thunar. I remember having this problem once before, and it was solved somehow, maybe adding an entry to /etc/fstab.

The problem with that is the mount of a usb plugin can change names. It is not always /dev/sdf. It could become something else, so fstab entries for USB could be a mistake.

Perhaps your device needed a custom udev rule so that it would be recognised. If you upgraded, did you make a copy of your /etc directory prior to the upgrade? You may have had a custom rule in /etc/udev/rules.d

Hey, that may have been it, I made some udev rule. I am glad that i made a copy of /etc. Unfortunately my copy of /etc is saved on a USB device! Ill have to make a new rule.

Ill just plug my usb drive into my laptop and see what is in the etc! Slackware is my desktop computer.

michijo 11-05-2012 10:36 AM

No, I cross-checked the UDEV directory. It's the same in the new slackware as in the saved etc directory I have.

I am using xmonad. I do start it with startx and an xinitrc file. Not sure what i3 is.

That was just an example. i3 is just a window manager, similar to xmonad. Can you post your .xinitrc?
