Failed to mount 'New Volume', Not Authorized to perform operation


I recently installed i3 wm on Enos XFCE.
i was able to get sound/keys working but not able to mount an internal drive.
i am able to mount USB drives successfully though.
however i am able to mount the drive ‘New Volume’ by using Thunar when i login to Xfce desktop, it asks for authentication when i enter passwd it mounts.
i am getting error while i try to login using i3wm, i am getting below error.
can anybody pls help or suggest on what i’m missing.

PFB error snap.

Install polkit-gnome

Add the following line to ~/.config/i3/config

exec --no-startup-id /usr/lib/polkit-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1

restart i3


Many Thanks!!!
this resolved the issue.

i3-wm is not providing any of this tools on its own, as it is only managing windows :wink:
