USB Devices No Longer Automount

Typically, whenever I plug in a flash drive or connect my camera, it says "*suchnsuch-device* was mounted automatically" & I can then view the files in the file manager. Well, it's stopped doing that. According to the output of lsusb, the system sees the device(s) but refuses to mount. Beyond that, I can't seem to find any reason or relevant data as to why. Any ideas, anyone?

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

Hm. Have you checked your settings under Thunar > Edit menu > Preferences > Advanced tab > Configure (blue link at bottom of Advanced tab)? Not sure what would have happened to change aforementioned settings, but I'd check them nonetheless...

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

What is the output of:

groups

If there is no "storage" on the list, then run:

sudo gpasswd -a <username> storage

Then re-boot...

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

Upon entering that command, I got this:

gpasswd: group 'storage' does not exist in /etc/group

Should I create this group?

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

No, don't bother: I gave that suggestion from my Arch install --- now I'm running from #! & I see that I don't have that group either but my thunar will still automount. Bad suggestion, sorry sad
I don't know what's going on --- you'll have to wait for someone better than me...
As a workaround, you could mount the device manually:

sudo mount /dev/sd<x> /mnt

& browse the contents in your /mnt directory wink

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

^ Ok, appropriately dismissing related ideas. This is just weird, though. Everything worked just fine, then out of the blue, it just stopped. No software changes or anything, as far as I can remember, & it just stopped.  yikes

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

So, I had the idea to try running thunar --daemon directly from the terminal, & here's what I got when I tried to connect stuff:

thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type.
thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type.
thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type.
thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type.
thunar-volman: Unknown block device type.
thunar-volman: Could not detect the volume corresponding to the device.

The first three 'Unsupported USB device type' messages were from trying to connect my camera. Everything else was from trying to connect my flash drive, both of these things have worked just fine before.

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

^ Good idea smile
What is the output of "groups" BTW? Maybe "fuse" is missing... (this is just a wild guess)
Also, what is the output of:

aptitude search gvfs

I've got to sleep now, I'll check back in the am: time zones, eh? wink

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

Thunar + udisks is a huge mess. Did you recently get udisks2 perhaps?

... me I'd just switch to udevil/devmon.

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

^Apparently, I do have udisks. If I were to apt-get remove it, would that solve it? (Ideally, I don't want to go completely rebuilding my system)

Sorry for being massively, massively off-topic here ( ops ), but what GTK theme are you using in post #4? Thanks  big_smile

Re: USB Devices No Longer Automount

Still use it? Devmon has been in development since at least 2011, and even with IgnorantGuru retired, you have higher chances to get community support than with "mainstream" products like udisks or thunar-volman.

And you can use devmon with udisks (instead of udevil) if you want to.
