@annoyingduck

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? https://bugzilla.xfce.org

@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.

I haven't used Xfce for a long time now so there's no point in me maintaining this. Dropping.

this should be on community at least. Plase vote :D

@annoyingduck I've no idea I'm afraid. I didn't submit this myself. I just carried it over from AUR3 as it had been orphaned. You could try and find a TU to take it on - I think there would be a fair chance of that happening. I'm pretty sure that the whisker menu plugin spent some time in the AUR before being added to community.

Why isn't this in the official repository? To me, it's one of those XFCE standards.

Done, thanks.
