File explorer does not show any "Devices" - Linux

Post by chromo sapiens » Fri Jun 30, 2017 8:11 pm

Hello dear community!

Let me say that I much appreciate XnView MP, I conider this program as indispensable under Linux.
One thing that I am missing is that the file explorer within XnView MP doesn't show any "Devices" as USB-Sticks or other partitions. Neither mounted ones nor unmounted ones. So the only way to access them is by mounting them first and go into the folder /media or /mnt. This is of course not an option for non-tech users.

Is there a way to display the devices?

I am looking for something like in Nautilus (standard file explorer under Linux Mint Cinnamon) where you have a section "My computer", a section "Devices" and a section "Network". First shows the folder structure of the system partition, second shows the mounted and unmounted drives (external and internal). By a click on the drive it is automatically mounted if it was not already.


Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.2
XnView MP Linux
Version 0.86 64bits
