    Replacing `pcmanfm→side pane→Right Clk→Eject Removable Media` with script

    Sorry for being absent from the forum for so long.
    I have an ancient pendrive that still works well, but is irresponsive to `pcmanfm→side pane→Right Clk→Eject Removable Media` . It has an LED lamp that keeps glowing even when "Eject..." is clicked.
    I have had the solution for a long time. I had found it from elsewhere then also from here: Ask Ubuntu 447471
    and here: Karl's Code
    I first run :
    Code:
    for device in $(ls /sys/bus/usb/devices/*/product); do echo $device;cat $device;done
    I identify the Mass Storage Device, then use the command:
    Code:
    echo 'x-y' | sudo tee /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb/unbind
    and the LED switches off, which is an evidence that the drive is powered off.
    One could also have used:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e "Mass Storage"
    then use the `unbind` code.
    Is there a possibility of adding these two lines of codes as script in `pcmanfm→side pane→Right Clk→Eject Removable Media`?

    I will also write to pcmanfm user-group for a solution and will post the responses, if any, here too. I still use Knoppix 7.2.0

    i recently learned eject is a binary which is called by the filemanagers
    you can even remove it
    sudo apt-get -y --purge remove eject

    maybe thereafter a script with the same name stored at the same place would work
