automounting usb devices with usbmount works well but i have one problem


i m trying to comfigure my debian sarge in order to not have to add my devices in fstab,but automounting them.
i used the package usbmount. i loaded all the needed modules and the result is fine. when i plug in my usb hard disk, i have to icons in my konqueror and i use my disk normally.

the only problem is that as simple user i have no privilleges to unmount my disk. as root all works fine.

what am i doing wrong. does anyone know the solution to my problem??if i fix this, i will write a tutorial, because it is very simple but most of the new users do not know how to manage it.

Hi, I don't use usbmount myself, but
I went to the homepage
http://users.actrix.co.nz/michael/usbmount.html
(I assume that's the same prog)
and found a link to this
http://www.xs4all.nl/~bsamwel/usb_st...on_debian.html
which talks about an option MOUNT_OPTIONS
which lives in /usr/local/etc/usb-mount.conf
(however I suspect a Debian package probably makes that /etc/usbmount.conf)

Perhaps you could try setting umask=002 in those options?

i finally managed it. my mistake was that i thought that package usbmount was usb-mount.

i tried to follow these instructions http://www.xs4all.nl/~bsamwel/usb_st...on_debian.html

with a wrong package. so I downloaded usb-mount 0.95 , i followed the instructions of the above link and the INSTALL.txt(very important), and worked fine!!!

Change your umask from 0002 to 002

Make sure you umount your drive before unplugging!

Actually, that won't make a difference to your problem,
when I think twice. Any more info to go on?
Contents of fstab, how you've configured usb-mount, etc?

heres my usb-mount.conf:

# Config file for usb-mount
# These settings correspond to those in force for version v0.94.
# Please inspect each setting an customise for your system.
# If unsure - then these settings are reasonable defaults.
#
MOUNT_PATH="/mnt/usb-storage"

# Location of disktype (utility from http://disktype.sourceforge.net/)
DISKTYPE=/usr/bin/disktype

# Location of sg_map (utility from sg3_utils)
SGMAP=/usr/bin/sg_map

# Some devices don't have any partitions - we can use
# the device as a one big partition - but should it be
# addressed either as /dev/sda or /dev/sda1 - people
# have suggested both. This option can be used to define
# a 1 suffix for such cases - please let me know which one works
# for you. I suspect the empty case is the right one to
# use - but since previous versions use "1", I'll leave it
# for now.
#NO_PARTITIONS_SUFFIX="1"
NO_PARTITIONS_SUFFIX=""

# Location of fdisk
FDISK=/sbin/fdisk

# Comment out the next line to disable the $HOME/Desktop actions.
DO_DESKTOP=1

# Desktop folder name
DESKTOP_FOLDER_NAME="$home/Desktop"

# The name of an icon that can be used for desktop icons
# for mounted devices.
MOUNT_ICON_NAME="3floppy_mount"

# The name of an icon than can be used for destop icons for
# unmounted or detached devices.
UMOUNT_ICON_NAME="usb"

# Uncomment the next line to enable deleting usb device icon
# from desktop after unmounting the device.
#DELETE_ICON=1

# Comment/uncomment the next lines to enable writing a .directory file
# to the root of each partition mounted - this provides a
# custom icon for the mounted folder as well as a folder unmount
# action.
DO_DIRECTORY_ICON=1
#unset DO_DIRECTORY_ICON

# Comment/uncomment the next line to disable mount uid option where
# the uid is set to the owner of the console.
DO_CONSOLE_USER=1
#unset DO_CONSOLE_USER
USE_WHO=1

# Not recommended - playing with modules probably isn't nice.

# Generic extra mount options.
#MOUNT_OPTIONS=""
# Make the file system updates synchonous - safer in the
# event someone yanks out a device without unmounting it
# because it is more likely to have all its data on board.
# But probably much slower.

# Set any umount options. Some people prefer -lf, some
# with older distros do not. (Read the umount man page for
# details - if unsure, leave on)
#UMOUNT_OPTIONS="-lf"
# Uncomment this line to disable -lf.
#UMOUNT_OPTIONS=""

# On umount, signal any processes that are using the mount point - this
# may cause them to terminate. By default this is disabled for backward
# compatibility - I normally have it enabled. Note that programs that
# don't handle signals will probably exit without saving thier data. My
# thinking is that it is better to terminate a process than have it
# continue to hold the mount open and present a false view of the real
# state of the mount point. Set to enable, leave unset to disable.
TERMINATE_SIGNAL="-HUP"

# If set, on umount, try to terminate processes using a mount point by
# signaling them with the TERMINATE_SIGNAL and if that fails, after a
# couple of seconds delay, send a kill signal to all processes that are
# using the mount point - this may cause them to terminate without
# saving all or some of their data. Set to enable, leave unset to disable.
KILL_SIGNAL="-KILL"

# If set, usb-mount will only use TERMINATE_SIGNAL and KILL_SIGNAL when
# explicitly requested by using -signal or -kill parameters
# as the first argument to usb-umount. Set to enable, leave unset to disable.
# enable/disable.
ONLY_SIGNAL_ON_REQUEST=1

# If set, add destop menu unmount items to terminate and kill
# processes. Set to enable, leave unset to disable.
DESKTOP_SIGNALS=1

# Syslog log priority where a GUI might pop up a window - for
# KDE on Redhat 7.2 this is emerg level. If you don't want
# to see any popups - change it to something lower - eg alert.

# Syslog facility to use. Error messages in the syslog
# will have this facility so they can be easily identified.
FACILITY=local5

OK, I'm not familiar with usb-mount, however
what are the contents of fstab, and what does
# fdisk -l
produce?

(sorry about delay, found cracked DSL cable .... eventually)
(took me longer to find my crimpers though! lol )

Doesn't it help using the "auto" option in fstab?
