openSUSE 13.2 external media mount point fix


openSUSE 13.2, when presented with an external USB drive, will mount it happily...except the mount-point is bizarre, and not very user-friendly. It will mount the device as /run/media/<username>/<whatever-drive-ID>, which makes it difficult to access.

To fix this, there are a couple of simple steps:
  1. Create a /media directory
  2. Make it 777, for simplicity sake...this is, after all, for removable media.
  3. Edit the /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/80-udisks2.rules file, and put these lines at the very end:
    Code:
    # Use /media, not /run/media/<username>
    ENV{ID_FS_USAGE}=="filesystem|other|crypto", ENV{UDISKS_FILESYSTEM_SHARED}="1"
  4. Either run "udevadm control --reload", or reboot.
Done...now, when mounting an external USB drive, it will show up under /media. Much easier to find/access.
