It seems that this issue is connected with GUI?
How can I persuade the GUI to play with us?

The UI can't mount NTFS, due to the lakes of supports of NTFS in the FreeBSD kernel, and I am looking to an alternative to gnome-automount.

I have plaid arount.
With
# ntfs-3g /dev/da4s1 /mnt
I can mount my external device.
It is also shown within caja on the left side underneath: devices.
If I go with the mouse on it, it sais: "can not mount."
BUT: If I go with in caja up to the file system / and than click on
/mnt
Now I got access to all my backups. So I'm lucky;-)
The question is: where is the bug?
The same think happens also with Thunar.

It is not a bug! Caja track /media and not /mnt, and the lake of supports of mount ntfs in FreeBSD kernel cause the problem.
