Question Debian automount inserted devices


I don't have an opportunity to check it out now... Does Debian 6 testing mount inserted CDs/Flash-drives automatically like Ubuntu does? Or the only way to mount them after inserting is to use mount command?

P. S. I hope it doesn't mount devices automatically...

If you do not want automounting then remova hal (or anything similar to it) or prevent it from running.

Depends on the de you use. Gnome uses gnome-volume-manager, kde4 uses a different method.In order to get automounting with xfce you have to tweak thunar and ivman. LXDE only automounts if you have the newer pcmanfm and gvfs.

Most window managers do not automount.

You can disable automounting easily enough. No need to try to remove hal.

personally I am with the OP on the issue, I would rather mount thing myself. which is why I do not have gvfs installed.

So does Debian 6 Gnome mount automatically? By default.

Automounting in gnome 2.24+ is handled by nautilus, so yes. At least you can configure it easily.

Open Nautilus go to its preferences and modify the browseable media behaviour options to your hearts content.

Also - auto browsing (i.e. automatically open a nautilus window when inserting a USB stick) is NOT auto mounting.
Auto mounting is the process that mounts the content of said drive when the drive is inserted so the user CAN browse it (it appears in the left pane in Nautilus). Buth this has nothing to do with the automatic opening in Nautilus of this device.

If you disable the auto mounting, you insert a stick and you will have to mount it from the command line to be able to see its contents (it wont appear in the Nautilus pane by default). Probably this is not what you want.
