Do you also have gvfs-backends installed?

Re: [solved] Thunar on Chromebook Linux Can't Find gvfs

That's the fix.

Why was it missing?

Here's how i installed Thunar

sudo apt-get -y install thunar

Is there an alternative installation command for Thunar which would include gvfs-backends automatically?


Thanks!

Re: [solved] Thunar on Chromebook Linux Can't Find gvfs

If you run:

apt show thunar

...you will see that gvfs-backends is suggested. The distro has set it up this way.

I believe apt/apt-get have an "--install-suggests" parameter that will also install the suggested packages.
