I activated the gvfs service by adding
services.gnome3.gvfs.enable = true; to my configuration.nix.
I can see here ( https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/blob/5816c45f28ef66d2641fc061ce104cf670fc2c7f/nixos/modules/services/desktops/gnome3/gvfs.nix ) that gvfs is being added to systemd, dbus and udev packages.
# ps aux | grep gvfs root 25482 0.0 0.0 128996 2244 pts/1 S+ 15:47 0:00 grep gvfs # systemctl | grep gvfs $ systemctl --user | grep gvfs $ nix-store -qR /nix/var/nix/profiles/system | grep gvfs /nix/store/xysqyqfp4hif5b354dpwr3cxysr05zp0-gvfs-1.38.2
So I am wondering:
- Why it is not started automatically?
- Why gvfs binaries are not being added to $PATH?
If I add an usb stick I would expect it to be mounted automatically, but nothing happens, even if I have pcmanfm-qt open.
