xfce - thunar - gconf - dconf - usb mounting - why - how - bah

Hello,

I have disabled all automounting.

I need to know what file I need to edit to change the options that xfce uses to mount.  Or whatever it uses to mount when you right click and hit mount.

I am trying to mount a usb stick.

I have tried looking in dconf and gconf.

How does it work?

A few people mentioned gvfs and udisks.

I think it uses udev.  I know it does not any longer use hal.


What am I missing here?  What do I need to read?

Thanks,

Web...

Sorry for posting this link but I do not have time to write it again.  This is my opinion and what I ended up doing.

http://wiki.hackspherelabs.com/index.ph … disks-GVFS

If I am correct kernal passes to udisks which passes to gvfs or udev or something right?

I gave up on Thunar.

I would really like to figure out how to configure the gvfs/thunar default mounting rules.

Thanks,

Web...


I also found this link:  https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=112846

The entire reason I started this.

Open Thunar, click Edit-Preferences. On the Advanced tab, tick Enable Volume Management, then click Configure. Here are all your automounting rules.

Cheers. (Ensure you have gvfs installed for trash and automounting support - required for Thunar automounting)

In addition to gvfs, you also need polkit-gnome (even when using Xfce) since the latest thunar update.

As an alternative to the UI method which I've seen cause so much confusion over many months, you can just use udev to mount to a pre-existing dir, e.g.:

KERNEL=="sd*", ATTRS{serial}=="0011E06B70F9F021C7791290", ACTION=="add", SYMLINK+="myusb%n", RUN+="/bin/mount /media/myusb"

And in /etc/fstab

/dev/myusb1  /media/myusb  vfat  noauto,noatime,users,flush,gid=100,umask=007

This is what I use.

Heck, one could add the "flush" etc. to within the RUN+=, and not even need an fstab entry.

Edit: Added: ACTION=="add"

Padfoot.

I want to be able to pass custom options to the command that thunar uses.  forcedirectio etc...

brebs...

I was able to get the automounting udev rules to work great.  I removed gvfs.  Now just udisks and udev...

I like the way it works.
