Revision as of 16:25, 27 December 2013

Udiskie

The Udiskie article has not been linked to as I feel it needs a bit more work (e.g. the .xinitrc file would not be edited where using a DM such as LXDM. Carlduff (talk) 20:29, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Udiskie is rather short, it could also make sense to merge it here, what do you think? The same could be done for GVFS and gamin. -- Kynikos (talk) 03:26, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
Udev#Udisks should be moved too then. Or perhaps a separate article would be better? See Talk:Udev#Extract_the_UDisks_into_new_article. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 07:00, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
Will see about revising / re-writing Udiskie, et al. May not be appropriate to merge package descriptions in an article about FM functionality. However, interlinking should work fine. Carlduff (talk) 13:15, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Sources

This article has been largely sourced from two articles I wrote earlier for the Manjaro wiki. KDE FM packages were sourced from another Manjaro wiki article not written by me. Carlduff (talk) 20:29, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Merging

Will propose to merge the matters discussed in this article with relevant FM articles, where discussed as a central point of reference (e.g. see PCManFM. Carlduff (talk) 20:29, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

I've seen you've marked Thunar and PCManFM for merging: is that part of this proposal? -- Kynikos (talk) 02:49, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

New Polkit Rule

Note that the rule is written slightly differently that that provided in PCManFM. The new rule a) checks that the user is a member of the storage group, and b) gives access to all udisks2 functions. Carlduff (talk) 20:29, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Actually I've noticed that the same polkit rule is written differently in polkit, gvfs, PCManFM, and now this article! Propose to use just one of them for consistency. Any recommendations? Carlduff (talk) 13:14, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
I think that Polkit#Allow_mounting_a_filesystem_on_a_system_device is the best one. Other pages should just link to it. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 13:41, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
All linked to Polkit#Allow_mounting_a_filesystem_on_a_system_device, closing. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 16:25, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
