How to Unmount stuff without having to be Root?


How to Unmount stuff without having to be Root?

It's kind of annoying when I'm moving my USB stick around, that i have to switch to root and back all the time.

I assume you have a line in your fstab for that device right? If so add user as a parameter and you will be able to mount/unmount the device. Here is an example, my digital camera fstab line:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/e775 vfat noauto,user,rw 0 0
