browsing external drives in Linux

Post by michaelmuck »

I just came across his wonderful tool and would like to use it to check many image folders on external drives.
Unfortunately I don't see the /media/... folder in the folder tree where all the image folders could be found.
If I open a file from the file manager in xnview MP it creates a copy in the folder /run/user/1000/doc/a37cd2ef.
the last folder with a random name is created for every single file I open from an external drive.

Is there any way I can directly browse external drives in xnview MP?

That would be a wonderful thing :-)

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I've got the exact same issue on LinuxMint Xfce.
Has somebody found a solution to sort this issue out?
Many thanks
