I am having trouble using Thunar/exo-mount with removable volumes. The first symptom of the issue arises when I attempt to unmount a volume that was mounted with something other than Thunar/exo-mount. The operation fails, throwing an error saying I do not have privileges to unmount the volume. I know that this is not true because I can use pumount from the command line to unmount the specified volume. The other issue I am having is that things mounted by Thunar/exo-mount do not follow fdi specifications in /usr/share/hal/fdi. Any options I specify seem to be completely ignored.
My questions are as follows:
What does exo-mount/Thunar use to mount/unmount volumes?
Why will they not allow me to unmount things when I clearly have access to do so?
When mounting things, why are HAL fdi specifications ignored?
If anyone has any input, I would most appreciate it. Thanks.
It has been several months now and I am still having problems with this. I would very much appreciate any comments anyone may have regarding this particular problem. I have been having extraordinary luck with Xfce and I would very much like to solve this one remaining issue.
Keep up the good work, developers!
