What happens if you reverse the order in which you mount them? Mount G first, the F, then E, then D.

Re: how to sort disk by label asc in thunar side pane?

when open thunar ,it show GFED,actually,they are not mounted but only show it label in thunar pane,i should input  password to mount them ,then  unmount them all( the unmount disk will be at the end of the order).but after reboot   ,it  restore GFED

Re: how to sort disk by label asc in thunar side pane?

Thunar does sort by detected timestamp (see: https://git.xfce.org/xfce/thunar/tree/t … ice.c#n580).

Can you post back the results of:

gvfs-mount -li

...to see the order that gvfs is recognizing them in?

Re: how to sort disk by label asc in thunar side pane?

Which distro are you using? Try instead:

gio mount -li

BTW, I've tested pcmanfm and nemo and they both do the same reverse mounting. I don't think the issue is with thunar or any file manager, but rather with gvfs/gio or maybe even udisks/udisks2. They are being recognized in reverse alphabetical order and the file managers only display them in this order.

Re: how to sort disk by label asc in thunar side pane?

Long shot, but are there any characters which could be added to the beginning of the disk drive names which would not be displayable, but which would be sorted (so that one could "fool the reverse alphabetizer)?

i think it is udisk issue too,i have read archiwiki  about udev  and gvfs  ,try few methods but still failed.
