Subject description: XFCE Enviroment Slacko 64 bit 6.9.6.4
 

Heya guys, long time no see, I hope you've all been well.

Wondering if anyone can help me with a XFCE issue.

Lately I've been noticing a lot of apps are moving to 64 bit only so I thought I'd have a whirl at a 64 bit system. Started using Slacko 64 bit 6.9.6.4 and compiled XFCE4 but I seem to have a problem. For some reason proc, sys and pts are being treated as drives. I don't even have a floppy drive so I'm sure that's a related bug but I can let it slide since it sort of is a drive.

If I could hide them and still have the regular drives show I suppose that could be a solution enough, any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Battleshooter

Hah, thank you Geoff Very Happy

BS, so you know there's no issue with your fstab, Precise 571's copy is exactly the same.

Were listed devices OK prior to XFCE?

Do you @ all suspect a conflict with gvfs as used by Thunar's volume manager?

If not installed, perhaps you need to get that onboard.

Proc and friends don't appear on the rox desktop of a clean pupsave.

Gvfs is also installed, maybe I didn't compile something with gvfs as a dependency, I'll take a look at that

As a side note, commenting out fstab leads to the undesired icons not appearing on the desktop, but naturally leads to some undesirable system side effects.

That was one of my first guesses as well, but the problem existed prior to me compiling and installing pup-volume-monitor. Back then I had no drive icons at all other than proc, sys etc. Installing pup-volume brought in the regular drives.

No dice hmm. I don't think xfdesktop depends on gvfs. I think what I really need to find is where xfdesktop is reading the drives from
