hi, I can’t mount/unmount external drives from pcmanfm. I would like to mount devices through network (like ftp for transfer files) as well.
when I try to do so, a pop up appears to the warning operation not supported

First, see if launching pcmanfm with this command enables proper mount/unmount behavior: dbus-launch pcmanfm
If this works, you can add this line to startup and restart the session dbus-launch --exit-with-x11 pcmanfm -d &
See if this enables proper network and mount device behavior when launching pcmanfm normally.
If the first command didn’t hlp, you may need to install udiskie.
• Full gvfs support with seamless access to remote filesystems (Able to handle sftp://, webdav://, smb://, …etc when related backends of gvfs are installed.)
• Volume management (mount/unmount/eject, requires gvfs) with optional automounting
Known GTK issues
Non-mountable entries in /etc/fstab may cause 100% CPU load on mount attempt. The bug is reported to GNOME. Workaround: disable option ‘Mount mountable volumes automatically on program startup’ in Preferences or (better) remove those devices from /etc/fstab.
