Package: xfce4-mount-plugin
Version: 0.5.5-1
Severity: normal

I would like to provide a grapical way to mount and umount fuse based file systems to 
my users,the mount points are provided in /etc/fstab and work with mount and fusermount -u

The file systems are showed in the plugin list but do not umount or mount....

I would like that the plugin provides the user with an diaglog to enter there password
in a secure way. So they dont have to fallback to the commandline.

On the GNOME desktop enviorment it works in a grapical way.

I would also like to see an usabilty test on the gui to show the information in a better
way to the user, currently its very confusing and it does not look right.

Please see the attaced screenshot.

Thanks in advance,

Jelle de Jong
