sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/usb
then the usb key contents is visible in the open file dialog of the softwares, but very seldom in PCManFM.
And, if i select Devices or Network in PCManFM, it gives the error: Operation not supported , which is in my mind different than an execution error.

Concerning the wifi, my wifi dongle is detected, but as i did not find a way to use it, i installed the package "network-manager-gnome". After that i have a icon in the taskbar but the icon has a little red cross over it. A clic on it, shows a menu in wich there is an item corresponding to my wifibox. But selecting this item do nothing; if i select the 'Edit connections...' item, a window is open showing my wifi box, but once again trying to edit these connections do nothing. Well,  probably it is necessary to install another packages, but which?

Ok, so I just tried the 0.6.55 LXDE image, and whilst it is fast / responsive / lightweight, I was not impressed as to some basic 'user-friendliness' aspects. As you pointed out, media does not auto-mount although that is what the options are set to. Then, there does not appear to be any 'simple' way to configure wireless, especially the AC wireless adapter which is specifically for the rock64. It is detected correctly by the system, but there is no configuration controls in the GUI whatsover - either an applet that can be added to the panel, nor via nmtui (although I didn't run it again as sudo when there was no devices listed, so should do that just in case...)

If you have an ethernet connection you can plug the rock64 into, it might be worth trying the bionic-minimal image, and running `sudo install_desktop.sh mate` on it to install the mate desktop environment on it with the video driver stuff configured for you. I'll try that tomorrow myself and let you know how that goes. Depending on what the wifi networking support is like in bionic now, it may be easy enough to configure the wifi via the terminal. It was as simple as running nmtui after booting the image to configure the wireless... no sure... this netplan stuff in bionic has mucked some of the network settings around before.
