  • nvm fixed it by installing lxpolkit and created this polkit file under rules.d

    polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {  
    if (action.id == "org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount-system") {  
    return polkit.Result.YES;  
    }  
    });
    

    well this worked for me anyway

  • Hi, looking at Arch’s wiki, I have found this article about pacmanfm, and it has two sections that may be useful:

    • [Pacmanfm - NTFS read/write support[/url:ot59ai24]
    • [Pacmanfm - “Not authorized” errors when accessing/mounting USB drives[/url:ot59ai24]

    Hope they help!]1]0
