[SOLVED] Thunar mounting - Not authorized.

I've added the mounting function for Thunar that was illustrated on the front page.  But I get root access issues when try to mount via the file manager.  I'm trying to mount my drive which is called "Dock" and I get the following error message.

Failed to mount "dock".  Not authorized

Is there a way to resolve this?

Re: [SOLVED] Thunar mounting - Not authorized.

Try putting dbus-launch after ck-launch-session in .xinitrc rather than before big_smile
The order is important.
(I've switched the order on the main page this morning)

You have to add yourself to the group storage:
# gpasswd -a [username] storage

I had the same problem this morning after updates! (2/5/11)Following Willexterems' replied on this post solved the trick for me.
