installed

  • pcmanfm

  • gamin

Re: can't get PCmanFM to automount

As of May 24th, 2015, in a rainy Sunday morning, it still seems to be necessary to install udiskie to have auto-mounting working with PCManFM. I installed all the gvfs* packages, udisks2, started pcmanfm in daemon mode, and did a lot of research. Still, installing udiskie was what solved it for me as well.

I'm not sure if I should have opened another thread to say it, and then link to this one. In any case, I think this thread has helped a lot of people since it was opened.

There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
