Bug Description

When I try to open other partitions of my hard drive in PCManFM, I have to give my root password to mount the partition. There is no problem with a usb drive.

can you ensure you are in the group sudo, there has been some changes made to how things work. I don't have access to a *buntu machine at the moment. If you are a member of sudo, try adding yourself to the group wheel and see if that makes a difference.

I'm just thinking out aloud, so both may draw a blank.
