missed Unmount option in Nautilus' context menu
 
I have updated from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx and I found that the new version of Nautilus has not the Unmount option from the context menu, only "safely remove"....
I looked other forums and it seems that it was intentionally removed
from Nautilus changelog:
Quote:

* Mon Apr 26 2010 Tomas Bzatek <tbzatek@redhat.com> - 2.30.1-2
- Do not show Unmount when showing Eject/Safe removal
As of nautilus-2.30.1-2, the Unmount option was removed. You could always unmount it from a terminal command line if you really need to.
however it was a very useful option, e.g.
- when I connect my creative zen, I need to unmount it for gnomad be able to transfer files, the "safely remove" option unmount it but also switch off the power.
- when I want to burn a CD with xfburn, same thing... and the "eject" option actually eject the disc... so I can't burn it.
- Using my external hard drive I like to have it unmounted, this way nautilus don't mess with it every time I open nautilus. But when I want the hdd, it is on "places" so with one clic I can re-mount it.

Note: I know I can unmount from cli, but I was used to the "unmount" option and I wish to get it back

any ideas?

Your quote from the changelog apparently tells you what your alternative is:

Other than that, I think your only option is to add the code back to your version of nautilus and recompile. You could also try complaining to the gnome project. Good luck with that one :-)
