After updating individual packages for lxde, lxpanel and network manager, pcmanfm had updated also as a required dependency
The new pcmanfm version works but has missed the gvrfs update, so "devices" function no longer works and mounting functionality is broken.

Of-course if you select the upgrade all from updater there sould not be an issue.


Note: I choose to update individual or group of packages as an experimental learning curve to find out how things work and have better control over specific behavior, this is not advised for most of cases.

Update all gvrfs related packages (and install some more if you like) but remember to update them as a group of packages or there will be dependency errors:

Code: Select all

pacman -S gvfs

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
