I tried adding exfat to the allowed_types in udevil.conf but it did not work. exfat disks were not automounted. This change even caused a FIFO error to be thrown at boot-up.
I find it strange that the udevil.conf file includes many configuration settings for mounting exfat disks but it is not possible to include exfat in the allowed-types variable in udevil.conf.
(pedantic attention to detail) actually, it would be “allowed_types” ~~ underscore, not hyphen. Altering that line, alone, without also adding lines to declare “options”… could have potentially led to the FIFO error you witnessed.
Did you just edit one line, or did you ALSO add lines for
default_options_exfat= and allowed_options_exfat= as seen in the udevil.conf for antiX 17
My suggestion is to replace the entire content of udevil.conf with the exact, full, content found in the udevil.conf which was shipped in antiX 17, then retry.November 7, 2019 at 2:57 pm #29092MemberRobK88
Interesting.. Can someone post the udevil.conf file from AntiX-17.4.1?
Do you think exfat USB drives will automount in antiX-19 if I replace the antiX-19 udevil.conf file with the one from AntiX-17.4.1?November 7, 2019 at 3:36 pm #29093Memberskidoo

anticapitalista’s post mentioned “won’t automount [..] because pmount in Debian doesn’t recognize the exfat file format.”
IIUC, that affects only “automount=all,usb” boot cheatcode and “ControlCenter }} ConfigureAutomounting“.
Via spaceFM + udevil, you should still be able to accomplish automounting.
If you are running a “xxxx-space” desktop session, automount could (I haven’t tested) automatically occur at start of session.
Alternatively, adding “spacefm -d” to session startup file may accomplish automount.November 8, 2019 at 8:14 am #29132MemberRobK88
Thanks skidoo. I will play around with udevil.conf this weekend and see how it goes.November 19, 2019 at 11:19 am #29510Memberdr-kart
FYI — If I run SpaceFM and then insert my USB Flash drive formatted in exFAT, the USB Flash drive does show up in the sidebar.
But when I click on it, SpaceFM throws the following error:
FUSE exfat 1.3.0 WARN: volume was not unmounted cleanly. fuse: mountpoint is not empty fuse: if you are sure this is safe, use the 'nonempty' mount option
I wish I knew what mountpoint SpaceFM was trying to use….
P.S. I can cleanly mount and unmount the USB Flash Drive formatted in exFAT using the command line in Terminal.
But the minute I plug the flash drive in, antiX-19 attempts to automount it and fails. That is why you see the “WARN: volume was not unmounted cleanly” message.
+1. Same here.Had to manually mount my exfat drive.
