I googled a bit, but havnt been able to find an equivalent to Gnome-volume-manager that uses dbus and hal and doesn't use gnome or kde libs.
I dont want subfs or supermount or a kernel based implementation
Anyone know one?
ok, just found ivman, http://ivman.sourceforge.net/ will give it a shot.
this is a thing that I also am interested in,
if you get it to work you can post the sollution here,
arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
gnome-volume-manager isnt for audio volume, its the cool thingy that works with hal and dbus and does automatic mounting of drives and the like.
ivman seems to work good, mounts stuff well.
pacman -S ivman
then go to /etc/ivman/ and take the .defaults off all the filenames - the defaults seem to work. Customize them if you wish, they arent too hard to understand
<ivm:Match name="ivm.mountable" value="true"> <ivm:Option name="mount" value="true" /> <ivm:Option name="exec" value="/opt/kde/bin/konqueror $hal.volume.mount_point$" /> </ivm:Match>
add that to configActions if you want mounted media to automatically open up in konqueror.
