umounting USB storage freezing window
Last modified: 2017-07-23 16:22:54 EDT
Description of problem:
When ejecting USB storage, thunar's window freezes for some time. It can be moved around but you can't interact with it. It recovers after half a minute or something.
If I do `sudo eject /dev/sdd` in terminal the operation is performed immediately.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Thunar 1.6.12 vs XFCE
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount USB drive
2. umount/eject from thunar
you need to wait a minute until you can use thunar
I tried on 2 computers that I just upgraded from fedora 24 to fedora 26. I followed all necessary steps to remove any outdated packages and everything else appears to be working fine.
Moreover no such issues I've seen with Fedora 24. Everything worked instantaneously there.
Or is this gvfs related?
I think this is a plain thunar-volman issue. When I umount a USB drive I see in xsession-errors:
> thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type "usb".
> thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type "usb-storage".
> thunar-volman: Unknown block device type "disk"
P.S. When I do `gio mount -e /run/media/avalon/E822-1FC9/` the device is ejected instantaneously.
