[SOLVED] I have some mounting issues

So, I installed artix(runit as my init system) and I came across some issues(I don't know if they are issues or it is supposed to work like this). So first of all, I use pcmanfm as my file manager and as far as I can see, it can't recognize the trash folder. It's not appearing on the left side even tho in the file manager settings the trash folder is checked. Also, on the left, where I usually saw my other disks as mountable, I had to click on them and just mount, now I can't mount them from the file manager, I would have to manually mount them in the terminal. Also, on the left side of the file manager, the mounted linux partitions are always shown(root, home and boot). Is this normal behaviour or did I do something wrong?
(I am using udisks and udiskie for auto mounting but still I can't mount them from the file manager, they are just not recognized)

I have gvfs already installed

gvfs: The first is to simply autostart or run the installed file manager in daemon mode (i.e. as a background process). For example, when using PCManFM  the following command would be added to the autostart file:

Code: [Select]
pcmanfm -d &

<-- could this not help you?

some partitions, which you want not see, you can hide https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Udisks#Hide_selected_partitions

I will be looking into the hiding part, but pcmanfm -d didn't help. I tried it before :(

So, in case anyone comes across this, I found a fix. I added this in my Xsession (lightdm) script:

if which dbus-run-session >/dev/null && test -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS";

then

eval "$(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session)"
