Thunar requires restart of gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor.service to automount

Gour
Hello,

I've installed latest Manjaro xfce-iso to replace gnome with Xfce environment
and everything is working fine except the problem that Thunar is not
capable of mounting any removable media.

The same media can be mounted manually (it goes from 120M usb stick to
2TB HDD - RDX cartridge) and if I boot live-media iso (on the usb
stick), Thunar does automount which means that the issue has appeared
on my installed system.

In the journalctl output I noticed the lines like:

[...]
tra 07 10:58:06 atmarama.ddns.net gvfs-udisks2-vo[1056]: monitor says
it's not supported
tra 07 10:58:06 atmarama.ddns.net tumblerd[5613]: remote volume monitor
with dbus name org.gtk.vfs.UDisks2VolumeMonitor is not supported

Further investigation has led me to the following bug report
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1585066) and, indeed:

$ systemctl --user status gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor

and after that the inserted media shows up in Thunar's Devices section where I can
(un)mount them.

Now I wonder if someone can shed some more light on this issue, iow.
why gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor requires restart and how to fix the
issue permanently?

Hi Gour,

never faced such a behaviour before.

From the fact that you just need to restart a service to fix the
problem, I would assume that the order in which the services are started
at boot is the key.

Maybe you can compare the configuration/start order of your systemd
services against some other system which runs fine ?

Other than that I as well would need to "fish in the dark".

Cheers,

Alex

I forgot to mention that I 'solved' my problem by migrating to Devuan - Debian
without systemd - and everything works fine on all my machines. :-)
