I have quite a bit of removable media (flash drives, external hard drives, etc) that I want to adjust auto mount options for. How does one do this? Is there something similar to /etc/fstab?

  • Which desktop environment? – Gilles Nov 18 '13 at 21:52

In order to specify automount options across any DE you can specify this with udisks configuration: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Udisks#Udisks

Something such as:

udisks --mount /dev/sda1 --mount-options options

autofs also works: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Autofs

  • udisks is deprecated, can you please update your answer for udisks2 ? – Edward Torvalds Mar 10 at 6:30
