I don't know what happened exactly to my system, but currently when I open Thunar, I can see several mounted partitions such as File System (
/), Filesystem root (
/), efi (
/boot/efi/) and tmp (
/tmp/) instead of just a single File System (
/) as it used be until today. I noticed this peculiarity after I booted into my system this evening. Strangely, all my desktop icons were scrambled, out of place and resized. And then I opened Thunar and this strange behaviour spawned before me.
Anyway, with root permission, I can unmount efi but they are all there listed on Thunar, even efi after it has been unmounted. The others apparently cannot be unmounted because they are in use. I am not sure what I should do to get back to my previous working state. Please help me get rid of these redundant mount points.
If you should require it, let me trace back my non-trivial actions today. Well, I was installing a large package from AUR and I hit an error because I ran out of storage space. So, I deleted some data and used GParted to resize my partitions and add some more space to File System. Afterwards, I tried downloading the package using Firefox but it returned an error saying that tmp is full. So, I used BleachBit to get rid of all cache and temporary files and packages. That solved my problem. I was able to install the large package I was trying to install.
Later today, I realized that my system got possessed along the way. What should I do?
