can't mount flash drives

Postby MALsPa » Mon Mar 10, 2014 16:31

Noticed this today -- I think it started after the latest sabayon-weekly updates. When trying to mount a flash drive (using SpaceFM), I get the following message:

Code: Select all
Error mounting /dev/sdb1: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Error.NotAuthorizedCanObtain: Not authorized to perform operation

I am unable to mount flash drives using Dolphin as well.

Still haven't found a fix for this. I did this installation from Sabayon_Linux_13.04_x86_KDE back in July 2013 when an upgrade left me unable to boot into the system; I've been doing the upgrades weekly since then.

Similar issue mentioned here: viewtopic.php?f=86&t=31506&p=169831#p169831

Not sure that I want to re-install again, though. Anyone have any other ideas for getting this fixed?

Did you check if the SpaceFM daemon is still running in background ? (spacefm -d)

Any messages in the logs ?

Regards,

Well, if I reboot and then open Dolphin (instead of SpaceFM) and insert a flash drive, the flash drive does not automount. If I click on the flash drive under Devices in Dolphin, I get the following message:

Code: Select all
An error occurred while accessing '3.8 GiB Removable Media', the system responded: An unspecified error has occurred: Not authorized to perform operation


I get the same type of message with any flash drive I try.

I see that /dev/sdb1 is created after I insert a flash drive, but:

Code: Select all
$ mount /dev/sdb1
mount: can't find /dev/sdb1 in /etc/fstab


I don't know why I get this now because I have not edited fstab. So I created /media/sdb1 and I am able to mount a flash drive with:

Code: Select all
# mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1


So, should I create a line in fstab for mounting /dev/sdb1? That wasn't needed before.

I'm not sure which log files to check, but maybe from /var/log/messages:
