    annoying notification

    how do I stop this madness, see SS . when I mount a drive in nautilus whether a removable or an hd not in fstab this stupid requester pops up asking me if I want to open it with "files" , and this is AFTER IT IS ALREADY OPEN in nautilus and persists until I dismiss it . so how do I stop this annoying idiocy ?

    Hi Ronacc,
    I am also having this problem. The only thing I know to do is go to system settings -> removable media and click "Never prompt or start programs on media insertion" Its a livable fix, It will not only turn off those notifications but it will also not open the window (with your files in it) which means you will need to manually open them.
    I will let you know if I find another fix.

    I tell them how great Ubuntu is. I tell them its fast, virus free and it cost nothing to install or upgrade, and yet all they care about is "Can I play World of Warcraft on it?"

    yep that got it , thanks . What threw me was it dwas that it poped up the box when I mounted a hard drive partition from nautilus . Thats new behavior that I hadn't seen before and probably a bug since it comes AFTER you have already opened the partition . I think I'll bug it and see what they say .
