Linux Mint 17.1 - How do I disable Autorun?


hi,

Linux Mint 17.1 - How do I disable Autorun?

for example: When I plug a USB to the computer I don't want it to show me the files on the USB etc..

*I want to cancel it because I'm afraid of viruses / malware , I disabled the autorun on Windows for that reason.

thanks.

In Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon the Removable Media settings are under System Settings > Preferred Applications.

LINUX IS SO COOL !! I am so sorry I didn't know how good it is before

I am glad you found the answer on your own. But then again it never hurts to ask a question for help.
