When reformatting a USB drive with gparted, my volume manager attempts to mount the device. This results in some error messages telling me the device could not be mounted. The only way I know to turn these messages off, is to temporarily disable the auto-mount options in "Removable drives and media" settings for XFce4. Changing these settings constantly gets to be troublesome.
Ran a routine weekly update on an arch box this morning, didn't think anything of it as usual. Until Thunar started spitting errors at me whenever I tried to mount a USB device. gvfs makes the devices appear in the left pane for one-click mounting...
I use udiskie and udisks for auto-mounting devices in Fluxbox. It however stopped working on one laptop, while still works with exactly same configurations on other. Both machines run up-to-date current, only difference is one run 32 bit slackware, other 64 bit.
Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdb2: Command-line `mount "/media/scottaudio/G-DRIVE"' exited with non-zero exit status 1: [mntent]: line 12 in /etc/fstab is bad
mount: can't find /media/scottaudio/G-DRIVE in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
I have tried gparted and storage service manager, I still cannot make this work.
