brokenman Thanks for your work for better Porteus.
I'm glad that the situation is getting better.

I have a desire to Porteus MATE
normally (default)
shows the partitions in file manager
as in other versions of Porteus.
Like Porteus-KDE, XFCE, LXDE, RazorQT etc.

The existing situation (I do not see the partitions in the Porteus MATE file manager)

Simply as Linux Mint MATE (normally shows the partitions in MATE file manager)

Image

Probably not easy to find a solution.
I hope and waiting for the best solution

brokenman please make Porteus-MATE.iso
with possibility that
normally (default)
shows the partitions in MATE file manager

I m waiting
to try / test Porteus-MATE.iso in live mode with this possibility.

All the best.

Problem solved. Please edit you /etc/fstab file and add x-gvfs-show to the options for the drives you want to show. For example: noatime,nodiratime,suid,dev,exec,async

This will be added to the next next porteus update.

I've fixed the problem with caja but now this introduces another problem. The partitions also show on the desktop.

I can handle them in Caja but I don't want 15 extra icons on my desktop just to please caja. Suggestions?
