View Full Version : Nautilus customize mount actions for each one device

September 27th, 2014, 06:29 PM
Hi friends,
I've read some time ago, that is possible to customize the nautilus behavior for each mass device connected.
If I remember correctly, it was enough to add a hidden file in the root of the mass storage device, but don't remember how.

Someone of you know this procedure?

many thanks

What exactly do you want to customize? Which Nautilus settings? Or do you mean you want to customize how the device is mounted?

Yes, i mean to set the default application start on automount for each devices.

Ok - automount options for devices can be set using gnome-disks, or by editing your /etc/fstab file. In gnome-disks you select a device and you'll find a buttom labelled "more actions" where the device partitions are displayed. Click the "more actions" button and select "Edit mount options..."
