    As you mentioned before, you are a fan of Thunar, I am also a fan of it, but my only issue here is that when I try to open up a folder (home, second hd, I am just getting folders in a window, not really a file manager, is there a way I can set thunar as the default?

    Also I'm having issues with mounting as you mentioned earlier in the HowTo:. But I tried following what you said to do, but I have had no luck with it. I'm getting this error.


    Can't Mount Device

    org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.PermissionDenied
    Device /dev/sr0 is listed in /etc/fstab. Refusing to Mount.

    Did I do something wrong?

    The "folders in a window" is the Enlightenment Filemanager (EFM). I generally turn it off (under Modules - ie. just unload it) - but that will also take away icons on your desktop. You can then put Thunar on a launcher (on the shelf or on a free-floating ibar gadget.

    The easiest way to create a launcher icon is to start the app from the command line : >thunar , RIGHT CLICK the title bar and select "Add Application..." , select "To Launcher" and "default" (assuming you still only have the one "ibar").

    If you are using the "Places" Module and Gadget and it isn't opening Thunar when you click on a drive/partition icon, it has a "configuration" dialog (RIGHT CLICK) that you can use to point it to the right file.

    Just as a tip, it is usually better in e to specify the full path when setting up a launcher - ie "/usr/share/bin/thunar". If something doesn't work properly first time, try the full path method.

    By the way, I and several other users put together a set of tutorials on using the e desktop (they are here). Some are little old now but the basics have not changed much (you can ignore most warnings about things causing seg faults - most of that has been fixed).

    EDIT: If the OP or a Mod wants to split this thread (say, make one about "e17 Desktop Tips"), I'm happy to follow it.

    Can you post your PolicyKit.conf file?

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- -*- XML -*- -->

    <!DOCTYPE pkconfig PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD PolicyKit Configuration 1.0//EN"
    "http://hal.freedesktop.org/releases/PolicyKit/1.0/config.dtd">

    <!-- See the manual page PolicyKit.conf(5) for file format -->

    <config version="0.1">

    </match>
    <match user="USERNAME">
    <return result="yes"/>
    </match>
    <define_admin_auth group="admin"/>
    </config>




    There is the PolicyKit.conf I tried to make the changes and such, but they didn't work. Also, I do have my actual user name where "USERNAME" is, but I didn't feel it was any one else need to know .

    That definitely seems like it should work. Here is mine:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- -*- XML -*- -->
    
    <!DOCTYPE pkconfig PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD PolicyKit Configuration 1.0//EN"
    "http://hal.freedesktop.org/releases/PolicyKit/1.0/config.dtd">
    
    <!-- See the manual page PolicyKit.conf(5) for file format -->
    
    <config version="0.1">
        <match user="root">
            <return result="yes"/>
        </match>
        <define_admin_auth group="admin"/>
        <match action="org.freedesktop.hal.storage.*">
            <match user="[your user name]">
                <return result="yes"/>
            </match>
        </match>
    </config>
    What's really odd to me is that I forgot to replace [your user name] with my actual username and it still works. So it seems like yours should work, and mine shouldn't. But, somehow, the opposite is true. Bizarre. You did try rebooting, right? The new .conf file doesn't take effect until you reboot (unless it is possible to restart the service in charge of granting those permissions.)

    Got it working. Yeah, did everything, had a guy on the #e irc help me out. Took a fair amount of work though. Thanks for the help anyway.

    So what was the trick? This is a pretty common problem (but not usually fatal for me because either Thunar or the "Places" module will mount the drive/partition when "clicked")

    Terrific thread. Many thanks for this lightweight system.

    Quick question: after a lot of searching, I can't figure out how to turn OFF the titlebar animation - the effect that slides the titlebar up or down when switching windows. Does anyone know the way to fix this??

    Thanks!
