I think problem is with E23 login system , like what happened with Gdebi earlier when we couldnt install .deb files . because with E16 i have no problem opening and accessing the partitions with thunar
No if i try the correct password in E23, the password box just goes away immediately. If i try the wrong password the password box stays a few seconds longer and then dissapears on its own. Both times i dont get access to the partitons. In E16 everything is fine.
I do have an NTFS partition but i used to access it before
