Hi everyone.
Something seems to be not loading when I boot with i3wm that work's fine with xfce.
When I boot xfce I can access my samba shares via thunar just fine example smb://192.168.1.?
But when I try in i3wm I get Failed to open "/on". Operation not supported. Is there something simple I missing?
Appreciate any help Thank You.

Hi,

This one was a bit tricky to solve.
Try to launch i3 with these options in .xinitrc

Code:
# i3
exec dbus-launch --sh-syntax ck-launch-session i3

Hi Misirca,
that didnt seem to work.
Thunar is still showing "Missing Dependencies" and it's saying gvfs is not available even though gvfs is installed.
that "dependency" error doesn't show up in xfce. I also notice when in xfce I can access shares but can't play movies from my local network. I'm also looking into that, seems it works if I mount the share, which is the workaround i'm using now.

Well, I think I also installed additional packages to make it work (solved this a few months ago, cant remember precisely 🥵)

Check these packages are installed:
Code:
gvfs-1.30.4_3                  GNOME virtual file system
consolekit2-1.2.1_1            Framework for defining and tracking users
fusefs-smbnetfs-0.6.1_3        Mount smb shares (Fuse filesystem)
samba410-4.10.15               Free SMB/CIFS and AD/DC server and client for Unix

Also check for this:
/boot/loader.conf
Code:
(...)
fuse_load="YES"
(...)
/etc/rc.conf
Code:
(...)
fusefs_enable="YES"
dbus_enable="YES"
(...)
~/.xinitrc
Code:
exec dbus-launch --sh-syntax ck-launch-session i3

Hi Misirca,
I tried all of that and none of it made a difference. Thanks for your help, but I've kinda of given up on this for now.
I notice when xfce is loaded, all kinds of gvfs stuff is loaded. I don't know how to duplicate it in i3/freebsd. I wish I could get it working
since I only use i3 and I would definitely replace a few machines with freebsd. This isn't a complete deal breaker just a bit of a hassle to deal with.

I almost gave up on i3 because of this bug, until one day, it worked.

I reviewed all my fish shell history but couldn't nail it.

If I have the time, I will restart a fresh install, step by step, and try to make it work again.

I'll be back :cool:

HI Misirca, been working on this here and there (freebsd is a VM I'm working on, until i get a few things worked out and move to hardware)
I noticed in /var/run/user/1001/gfvs I can't change gvfs folder to r-w-x it only has r--x. In xfce it has r-w-x. In both i3 and xfce the folder gvfs
is owned by user. Is this something related?
