@Npa, likely because it isn't updated much upstream. I believe it was in extra at one point in the past.

I'll see how it works in the next major release of xfce4. I agree, it's a nice plugin.

thank you jskier i missed this package a lot. I don't understand why it is not in the arch extra repository ?

I also noticed an automounted drive not appearing in the places-plugin (but if it was unmounted it appeared). But as of the last few days, it has started appearing again for me. Not sure what changed, but it seems fixed.

I'm seeing it on my desktop now, I'll look into the mount patch and probably put in a bug report upstream sometime next week.

Thanks for the updates, I'll look into replicating this on my end and look into the existing mount patch.

Have you submitted a bug upstream?

@jskier I'm using fstab. This particular computer I'm using is actually using by Label, but my others that are using UUID are the same. Here's my fstab for the drive that doesn't appear:

LABEL=500GB\040Storage /mnt/500GB\040Storage auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0

All the other partitions and drives appear, but not this one. If I remove it from fstab it shows up in places center, but then I lose automounting on boot.

@annoyingduck, are you using fstab or systemd for automounting? I don't seem to have this issue on my laptop which uses UEFI and UUIDs, but I'll look into it some more.

I just noticed after the last update that my secondary hard drive that's set to automount no longer appears in the top drives section on all my newer UEFI pc's (non automounting drives are all still there). However it does appear on an older
bios pc - so I'm wondering if it has to do with the GPT vs MBR partition scheme.

On the newer ones, I have them set to automount using UUID, but on the older one I'm using the mount point (in this case sdb1). Don't know if that has any impact. Again, prior to the update, these all appeared in the upper part of the list. I have to bookmark the drive now to make it appear, which lists it as a folder rather than a drive.

Adopted, will update soon.
