GVFS is the virtual filesystem for the GNOME desktop, which allows mounting local and remote filesystems as a user along with trash support. It is also used by file managers like Thunar.


The gvfs package needs to be installed, along with polkit-gnome for the polkit rules.


See General Troubleshooting#Session permissions if you have any issues with automounting or permissions.

There is a known bug that causes duplicate entries for drives.
