Debian mount and unmount buttons?


I like using the terminal for almost any thing I do in linux. But I am very used to the Ubuntu mount/unmount/eject buttons. It's a pain in the ass every time I must part a sd to write it's name in the termina, at this point i am asking: Does anyone know a way to have on the Gnome3 desktop these buttons? by default Debian seems to automaticly mount every sd / usb and has the eject button but neither in keyboard short-cuts, the debian tweak tool nor the dconf editor I can seem to find a option to add mount / unmount.

I'm not using Debian at the moment, but it might be relevant to know what desktop environment you are using. Buttons of the sort that you describe are normally the function of the desktop environment.

In the meantime, you should be able to mount and unmount devices from you file manager. How that works varies with the file manager, but there's normally a sidebar that will give you that functionality.

Try right-clicking over an item representing a mounted removable device in the Nautilus sidebar. A menu should pop up including an item to unmount or eject the device. It's not quite the same as buttons, but it's worth a test.

I don't have Nautilus running in anything but VMs right now, but that's how I remember it working. I'd be curious to know what your results are.

In the Enlightenment desktop/window manager (there's some different opinions about which it is), inserting a removable device will cause an icon to appear on the desktop. Right-clicking that icon displays a menu with various choices, such as "mount," "unmount," and "eject."

Were you using Unity in Ubuntu? I have a Ubuntu VM I'll take a look at if you were. You have me curious.
