Auto-mount, Samba shares, (trash can too) problems with systemd/logind

Hi there,

After switching my Arch Linux installation over to systemd (pure systemd, no more ConsoleKit or initscripts) I am facing the same problems I had a while back when I hadn't used ck-launch-session in .xinitrc when launching a window manager.  These problems are:

- Auto-mounting of USB drives or CD drives not working, and when I mount manually I need to be root, despite being in the storage group (though I have read that groups shouldn't even matter with systemd now.)

- I simply cannot access Samba shares - clicking 'Browse Networks' on the left hand side pane of Thunar yields 'Failed to open "/ on".  Operation not supported.'

- Other little problems like the trash can not being around anywhere (GVFS - virtual filesystem problem?)

They're all problems I had back in ConsoleKit days when I didn't launch with ck-launch-session.  What can I do?  I am using Thunar as my file manager, i3 is my window manager.

Thanks,
Mike

For automounting, you can use a program like udevil  or udiskie.

Doesn't seem like that would get to the root of the problem...  Why would I need udevil or udiskie and not have needed them back before the change to systemd?  There's also the Samba problem.

And how did you achieve automounting before you switched to systemd?

No udiskie or anything like that.  It worked by default, provided I started my window manager with ck-launch-session.

If you run loginctl show-session $XDG_SESSION_ID, do you get Active=yes? Also you need polkit installed to have permissions.

I do get Active=yes, and yes, polkit is installed.

Managed to fix it for all the issues I had!  Turns out I simply had to launch with dbus-launch.  My /etc/slim.conf login_cmd line now reads as follows:

login_cmd exec dbus-launch /bin/bash -login ~/.xinitrc %session

All fixed.
