[Solved]How to disable the usb hard drive's auto open?

Postby lusaisai on Fri Nov 30, 2012 12:27 am

Hi Everyone

I installed Linux Mint 14 MATE recently, and I realized that everytime when I plug in my usb hard drive, the file manager browser will open automatically, is there a way to disable it?

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi lusaisai - welcome to the Linux Mint Forums :)

For Mint 14 mate - Try going to
Menu > Control Center > File Management > Media
and uncheck "Browse media when inserted"
