Lately I have been having boot issues when USB drives are connected: some process hangs … or somethin’. I’ve noticed that this does not happen without the USB drives: the boot process is very smooth and fast. Anyway, thinking about disabling automount as a workaround, until this gets fixed. What would be the best way to disable automount in CL please?
Alright, this looks like it may have something to do with the
org.gnome.desktop.media-handling automount and
org.gnome.desktop.media-handling automount-open settings: does anyone know what difference there is between
automount-open? Anyone cares to explain?
With automount-open it will not only mount the media, but also launch a file browser window displaying the contents of the mounted media.
For disabling, use
Thank you. How come these are independent settings though? What happens if, for example, I set
automount-open to on, but
automount to off? Will the USB drive be automounted or not? (I am pretty sure that if they are both off, there will be no automount.)
And you can always create a command line alias or a Gnome custom shortcut to your own mount script.
