I have a HP Chromebook where i used crouton to install xfce on. Everything is working fine and expected. However when I whenever I plug up a flash drive (64bit formated with NTFS or 265MB formated with FAT32) I see the stick pop-up in the file explorer (Thunar) for a second and then immediately disappear before I could have time to click on it (similar like here).
When I try the sticks in the default ChromeOS they work and are auto-mounted. So I think my issue is that ChromeOS auto-mount the stricks in the background while I´m using xfce.
If I try (inside xfce):
sudo mount /dev/disk/by-uuid/80F43972F3583C0B /home/user/64GBUSBStick
Then I get the error:
Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened. The volume may be already mounted, or another software may use it which could be identified for example by the help of the fuser command
However for the FAT32 stick its working ...
This might be (sorry if wrong, but I´m not a linux pro) due to the reason that when checking with
that the devices can be both seen here:
/var/host/media/removable/64GB or /var/host/media/removable/265MB
However they where still not added to Thunar
Did anybody have a solution for that issue? My preferred one would be to keep both auto mount options up and running if possible.
