Subject description: Volume management support also
 

Installing pcfmanfm both in jmv or LXDE seems easy.
But in order to get remote Filesystem and Volume management support that is another story. I had search hundreds of pages none related to puppy. Most answers seems to come from archlinux. But I have not find the solution for puppy.
making PcManFm work with the filesystem like empty the trashcan is not that hard. Just add gvfs and the backend with PPM and it seems to work.

Now making PcManFm work with the Volume management support that does not seems to work. I know it can work as it does in LxPupBionic-18.05+4.iso And I bet it should be working on LxPupSc. I guess I need to try that too.

From various readings: it is all related to libfm, gvfs. But it may also related to polkit(lxpolkt) and dbus. Just having a look at https://github.com/lxde/libfm will show you at the bottom

2. To get remote filesystem support, trash:///, and computer:/// support,
libfm needs gvfs. Please install gvfs and its related backends
if you need these features.

3. Volume management is done with glib, which relies on gvfs.
If you don't want to use gvfs, try the --enable-udisks configure option.
Libfm has a built-in volume management implementation done with udisks.
However, it's still experimental and may be unstable.
Use gvfs whenever possible.

4. If you're using Linux, mounting volumes without root privileges is
supported by gvfs and udisks, given you have correct policy-kit
configurations. If you have problems mounting/unmounting devices,
check your policykit configurations. Either your permission settings
are wrong, or there is no policykit agent running. There must be
something wrong and it's not a bug of libfm/pcmanfm.


Point is:
Who can help me set up Volume management support for PcManFm?
Who is the autor/builder of LxPupBionic-18.05+4.iso?

Thanks in advance.

That is peebee
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=89270

That is a old version of LxPupBionic.
May want to look at the LxPupBionic topic for a newer version.
Maybe ask your question in that topic.

Very good. I hope to have now my last piece of the puzzle.

Wao. I feel stupid... peebee I seen on your files that "pup-volume-monitor", but I incorrectly assume that has to be related to Audio Monitoring or something in that area. Not Volume Monitor as in disk mounting.

THANKSSS A LOT to both of you.

I could not find pup-volume-monitor for bionic 64bit. But I found the posted source:
https://github.com/01micko/pup-volume-monitor
I boot my recent compiled puppy_bionicpup64_8.0.sfs in my case with LXDE added. Loaded devx_bionicpup64_8.0.sfs. Downloaded zip file from github and then followed intructions

./setup-build-system.sh
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
make
make install

At first is seems not to work. It seems it requires a little time for drives o appear. And there we go my drives appear in the left screen. So I did repack the needed files with the rest of the config pet for LXDE and when I compile it in woof-ce I do have my whole LXDE environment set at boot. Nice. Thanks a lot.
