sorry for the noise, but this follows up on an error I made in not reading a README on my host TC64.
First spacefm/pcmanfm could not recognize sdcard in a certain reader which displays keycode 60125415
pcmanfm gave no error of use but spacefm was  (space truncated by me)
Code: [Select]
$ spacefm
Selected Device Handler 'Default': MOUNT [*]
Automount: /usr/local/bin/udisksctl mount -b /dev/sdc -o 'noexec,nosuid,noatime'
TASK_COMMAND(0x1460000)=/usr/local/bin/udisksctl mount -b /dev/sdc -o 'noexec,nosuid,noatime'
SPAWN=/bin/bash  /tmp/spacefm-tc-7009580e.tmp/5e8d49e6-tmp.sh  run
pid = 10772
Object /org/freedesktop/UDisks2/block_devices/sdc is not a mountable filesystem.
async child finished  pid=10772

Luckily I had another card reader with keycode 60125347. Mountable in pcmanfm, ditto with spacefm but with info
Code: [Select]
$ spacefm
Selected Device Handler 'Default': MOUNT [*]
Automount: /usr/local/bin/udisksctl mount -b /dev/sdc3 -o 'noexec,nosuid,noatime'
TASK_COMMAND(0x1f04000)=/usr/local/bin/udisksctl mount -b /dev/sdc3 -o 'noexec,nosuid,noatime'
SPAWN=/bin/bash  /tmp/spacefm-tc-7056711a.tmp/06899fb4-tmp.sh  run
    pid = 13556
Object /org/freedesktop/UDisks2/block_devices/sdc3 is not a mountable filesystem.
async child finished  pid=13556

In the first case, spacefm thought it might be sdc and gave no clickable partitions
In the success case, spacefm showed 2 clickable partitions one showing above of sdc3 is my attempt to make a swap partition....not yet tested.

Just to repeat if you only see sdLetter then card reader is unlikely to "succeed"
If file manager shows sdLetterNumber then success is just a click away.

thanks for reading and thanks to coreplayer2 for his spacefm package.
