Ubuntu: How can I get SD cards to mount automatically even when X isn’t running?



Question:

I have an old laptop with a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04. The GUI is painfully slow, especially when something is animating, so I followed these instructions to prevent the window manager from starting when my computer starts up.

When the window manager was running, if I plugged in my USB SD-card reader the card would be mounted automatically. This doesn’t happen when I’m in command-line mode. Is there a way to get Ubuntu to mount the card automatically even when the window manager isn’t running?


Solution:1

You will want to install and set up udisks.

They should then be accessible in /mnt/media/, named by their UUID.

You can see the UUID's of the currently-connected devices by running sudo blkid or ls /dev/disk/by-uuid/.


Solution:2

The process that listens for udisk events in GNOME is gvfsd(1). I think that if you start it in the background in a terminal session you should get automount.

Volumes mounted via gvfsd should be unmounted using gvfs-mount -u /media/volumename


Solution:3

I use devmon running in a separate terminal. It is installed with the udevil package. the default mount location is /media/(Drive label).
