auto-starting nautilus when connecting a card reader (debian, gnome)


Hi all,

Currently when I connect a card reader (with a card inside, of course) gnome auto-starts gphoto. However I don't use gphoto and I would like gnome to auto-start nautilus instead. Can someone please advice how to do this?.

Thanks,
Mike.

I can't verify this since mine isn't working but it seems to be the most obvious answer. Set the preference for Nautilus/Media for Photos to Open with other application. Choose file browser and if running default Gnome, then Nautilus should perform the action.

Open Nautilus and choose Edit, then Preferences. There should be a tab for Media. Then choose the drop down box next to Photos and select File Browser. It might be down the list a ways but should be there. Mine recognizes the card when in the slot but does not mount. It is fine in the camera so I think it is how Kodak formats it.
