comment Use a directory to simulate a USB storage device? Or any other way to simulate a USB storage device?
Yep, that'd be the virtualization I was about to point you to... Though I'd suggest using it through libvirt will probably be easiest.

comment Build the same source package for different Debian based distros
I'd suggest adding an example of how to do this, or at least a few links to where you can find more instructions on using git-buildpacakge.

Not sure why you deleted this---there is, I think, a perfectly good way to do this. In short, use a VM... Longer answer will have to wait until its voted no longer on hold.

comment using script function rather than keyboard input
I've edited your question substantially in an attempt to write it in "proper" English. If I've lost your intent, please feel free to edit or revert my edit.

Rewrite to fix English. Please feel free to edit/revert if I've not reflected your intent.

Simulate it at what level? There huge difference between the extremes of what you could want: "oh, and want the files to appear and disappear to simulate unmounting/mounting it" vs "I want to simulate putting a logic analyzer on the USB data pins". Could you please tell us what you're trying to test/explore/etc. via this simulation?

comment blkid not working immediately after cdrecord
I would suggest doing strace -o failed -f blkid /dev/sr0 after a burn, and then strace -o working -f blkid /dev/sr0 after eject/insert. Then diff will hopefully show you what failed, and that'll hopefully help tracking it down.

comment blkid not working immediately after cdrecord
I have heard of drives that need an eject/insert cycle after a burn to work properly. Does eject -T work on your drive (to close the tray)? Then you can fully automate it.

comment Can lightdm/gnome/compiz use bash instead of sh?
BTW: Rather than trying to find the stuff in proc, why not just check $BASH_VERSION to see if its bash?
