How do I disable automount???

Postby kingneutron on Mon Jun 25, 2012 9:55 pm

How do I disable this Godforsaken automounter in Linux Mint 13 Mate??

I've set all the GUI settings that I could find, and even went so far as to download dconf-editor and do it there, and every time I reboot it mounts /dev/sr0 on /media!

I swear, stupid crap like this is the reason I mostly use Fluxbox, but I decided to give Mate a try. :roll:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Go to configuration editor and under apps open caja/preferances and uncheck media automount and see if that is what you want.

I'm afraid none of these options appear to available in mint 14 cinnamon. I managed to change the value of UDISKS_PRESENTATION_NOPOLICY using a udev rule. I've gotten to the point where the file manager doesn't open when I insert a USB stick, but the volume is still being automounted. This is not a good thing for me as I often write out disk images to flash memory using dd.

Any help appreciated. Thanks,

Steve
