Strange Dolphin issue

When I download something, my download partition isn’t listed under other devices. If I open it in the file manager, then redo the download the partition is listed to pick.2024-05-14T04:00:00Z

I am saying when I download something they are not there to pick, untless I open them through the file manager first. This has never happened with Caja.

It may only be mounted when you access it.
We can’t know how you configured it.

Where and what is your “download partition”?

To find out and make it visible to us, the output of these commands could help.

lsblk -f
cat /etc/fstab

├─sda1 vfat FAT32 6DB0-0A0F 299.1M 0% /boot/efi
├─sda2 exfat 1.0 Download 76FB-F724
├─sda3 swap 1 swap 432e1292-b63d-42c2-8b0f-55fed2854879 [SWAP]
└─sda4 ext4 1.0 0647dad9-3687-4eba-8d09-acc5ce30021d 701.2G 2% /

cat /etc/fstab

UUID=6DB0-0A0F /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 2

tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0

Going by the name, this is your download partition, right?

It is not mentioned in /etc/fstab
That is why you need to use your file manager first - to mount it.

It probably should be in /etc/fstab.

I can’t tell you the exact line to put in because I’m not familiar with the exfat file system.

Someone else surely can.
Good luck!

Thanks, maybe NTFS would have been better.

No - exfat is fine.
I just can’t tell you what to put into /etc/fstab - because I don’t personally know the filesystem well
and do not want to tell you the wrong thing.
