Automounting daemon


Hullo,

I've recently screwed up the thing that automounted that USB devices when I plugged them on. I wanted to know what daemon did that and in what folder where their executable files, so I can restore them to what they were before (I know, my USB devices won't be recognized by the kernel, but that's not a great deal to me).

So, if one of you has time on his hands and would want to help me, I would be glad. I figured out it was udev or HAL, but I can't find the folders in which the files are executed. Anyway, if you can help me, I'd be glad.

Thanks!

linuxquestions.org, where Linux users come for help.

Having a bad day flanksteak, if there is any pointless chatter in this thread, it is your post.

I'm not sure about the files you are looking for or what you did to screw things up, but if you want to try to set it up again and see if it works, or to compare, look at my post in this thread.

Know, flanksteak, that I've made my research before posting here. I wouldn't post if this hadn't been done. Anyway.
I read your post, Junior Hacker, but this does not solve the problem. What I did to screw up things was to make changes to the Properties of my USB devices on the right-click menu appearing when use you right-click the desktop icon of the device. I wanted to change the mount folder to LACIE instead of LACIE-2, but when I rebooted with those options on, I had an error message telling me that I couldn't mount the device. So, I removed the changes I made to the properties, then rebooted again. When I plugged in the device, an error message told me that I didn't have the proper privileges to mount the device. However, when it's plugged at boot, it mounts. I guessed I messed up HAL or udev rules for automounting USB devices with user privileges, so I want to restore those files back to default.

(That's the properties I'm talking about)

I'm glad your took time to respond to my post,

OK

Sorry for being a little tardy, I think the problem had to do with the actual name that was given to the USB drive when it was last formatted and udev is going with that for auto-mounting, by changing the mount point, it did not jive with the volume name of the drive. I can't seem to find in any of my Linux distributions a similar properties window to yours, probably because of a different distribution or the difference between Gnome & KDE as I use KDE exclusively. I also noticed you don't have anything in the Mount options field, this is what my Fedora has:

UTF-8 charset

But here is a link to a thread I tripped on that will probably get you what you want with a little (lots) of reading, post #3 appears to have the answer:
