I have searched and searched and pulling my hair out on this issue. I am using PCMANFM .9.10 on an LXDE install using the Arch x86 iso. My HD contains several linux partitions and a FAT32 partition.
I am not able to mount these partitions in PCMANFM. I am able to mount my usb flash drive
When trying to mount a partition in PCMANFM I get a "not authorized to perform operation" error message.
Today, June 11 I partially rewrote this due to the lack of response I am getting on this problem.
1. did a reinstall of Arch & LXDE today. I've done two or three installs. dbus is in daemons in /etc/rc.conf
2. initially the partition icons did not show up
3. then, I installed gvfs and added 55-my-conf.pkla in /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/
4. With that the partition icons show up in PCMANFM
5. But I still get the "not authorized to perform operation" message
The 55-my-conf.pkla has this content:
[Storage Permissions] Identity=unix-group:storage Action=org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount;org.freedesktop.udisks.drive-eject;org.freedesktop.udisks.drive-detach;org.freedesktop.udisks.luks-unlock;org.freedesktop.udisks.inhibit-polling;org.freedesktop.udisks.drive-set-spindown;org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount-system-internal ResultAny=yes ResultActive=yes ResultInactive=no
contents of .xinitrc
#!/bin/sh # # ~/.xinitrc # # Executed by startx (run your window manager from here) if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f" done unset f fi # exec gnome-session # exec startkde #exec startxfce4 exec startlxde # ...or the Window Manager of your choice
I changed <action id="org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount-system-internal">
mount a system-internal disk at <allow_active> from "auth_admin_keep" to "yes".
Still didn't work!
Either this is a bug or I have a permission problem somewhere.
Can you please advise how to do this or point me to a recent tutorial to be able to auto mount other partitions not using /etc/fstab? Some of the older posts refer to hal or other package that have been deprecated.
Edit: latest. It seems that I must mount the desired partition from the terminal. example: $sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt
then can edit it from PCMANFM by going to / and then /mnt. Apparently I do not have to manually unmount.
