Show devices on desktop

Postby Achlys » Fri Oct 31, 2008 5:19 pm

Hi:

Thank you very much for this fabulous piece of software!!!!!

I use a debian testing computer and recently installed lxde. When I connect a device (a usb memory stick for example), I can see it in pcmanfm and when I doble click on it, pcmanfm mounts it for me :-)

My question is, can pcmanfm show device icons on my desktop like it shows in the file manager window (like gnome does)???

Thank you in advance!!!

i want similar function too ... maybe we can inspire from thunar-volman:

debian package info:
Description: Thunar extension for volumes management
The Thunar Volume Manager is an extension for the Thunar file manager,
which enables automatic management of removable drives and media.

http://www.gnomefiles.org/app.php/thunar-volman
The advantage of Thunar Volume Manager over other solutions (like
gnome-volume-manager or ivman) is that it does not require an additional
daemon to be running in the users desktop session, which means it is a
very lightweight solution. In addition, the Thunar Volume Manager
smoothly integrates into the Thunar file manager and the Xfce desktop.
