I have been using Manjaro since last 3 months. Now I couldn’t find my Root and Home partitions under dolphin’s device panel (show hidden places unchecked) i don’t know how to solve this issue… face this issue since i did some grub changes. I’m newbie to linux…
thank you in advance.
Well, that all looks pretty normal to me. Are you sure that hidden devices are un-checked in your file manager?
By the way, this may go in against your usual method of working ─ it certainly does among other people who come from the MickeySoft world ─ but UNIX normally does not work with “drives” as storage.
The idea is that one would navigate the directory hierarchy, which is bound to remain consistent regardless of the specifics of the local installation. The idea of the “Places” in the file manager was introduced by the GNOME people through freedesktop.org, and the reason why is that the GNOME developers take inspiration from macOS, which also knows the concept of drives, albeit that they are called “volumes” there.
The irony of it all is that macOS is also a UNIX ─ it’s based upon FreeBSD ─ but the concept of volumes came from Classic Mac OS (which was not a UNIX) and was preserved for compatibility reasons.
