Under View - Side pane make sure you have selected "Places". Or Just click down the arrow next to "Directory Tree" and select "Places"

Thank you  :)




Now I also receive same error as OP mention in first post. At least terminal/sudo always works.

In Topic: PCMIA card with USB2 and FIrewire - pen drive not detected

14 August 2017 - 07:32 PM

Thanks, I'll try.

There is of coure one thing that I forgot to specify clear. When inserting a usb volume into the laptop native usb ports, it always works and it always appears in places with correct volume name. It is only when the usb drive is connected to the pcmia extension card, that it is not automatically mounted.


And my first post was a bit poor, because the codelines pasted from Terminal was done while the pen drive was inserted into another usb port and was working (auto mounted).




Ok, there is more problems.  The lsblk command doesn't reveal sdb1 (as expected).

In Topic: Error message when trying to reboot or power off after system update

14 August 2017 - 06:59 PM

Yess - thank you so very much :D


After I did run those four commands, I didn't get the reboot/poweroff options back imediately, but after I rebootet by terminal, everything seems to be normal again.


I'll write this list of commands down in case of later use - Is this the "universal solution" for cases of upgrades going bad ?

Hi. I doesn't find any arrow (K_clas is the name of the volume on the usb pen drive).



Nor doesn't the right click menu (on the K_clas icon) offer any choice to unmount (print screen feature refuses to store any image as long as the right click menu is visible).

Hi guys.


I'm sorry if I hijacks the thread, but my question should be relevant still.


In other distros, the usb pen drives is symbolized by a temporarly desktop icon. If you want to eject the media, then right click on that icon. In Bodhi Linux, that doesn't work because I doesn't see any desktop icon appear - but I still have normal access to the contents of the usb stick.


Is there other ways to eject usb drives, e.g. from within PCManFM ?


I'm still a Linux newbie, so here is the commands and outputs from my terminal when ejecting an usb drive (thanks DOOMguy)
