View Full Version : [ubuntu] disabling Music Player autolaunch on CD insertion

May 23rd, 2008, 09:17 PM
I'm sure this is a simple fix, but how do I make my system do nothing, yes, nothing when I put in a CD? It always launches Music Player, but I only use mplayer or sometimes Amarok.

In a terminal:
gnome-volume-propertiesor find it in System>Preferences...

I already tried that. Nothing is enabled, except the photo-program is set to launch when I plug in a camera.

System->Preferences->Preferred Applications

It depends on what version your using. 7.04, 7.10 - .system -> preferences -> removable drives and media
8.04 edit menus -> enable file management in preferences then go there under media tab

How do you remove entries from the media autolaunch menu? I'm using 10.10, and I'd like to remove custom commands that I've tried in the past.

home folder > (view -show hidden files) > .local >share > applications
You'll find mimeapps.list, remove the userapp-name-XXXXXX.desktop entires on the appropriate lines (where name usually is the first word of command, XXXXXX is random

Also in that folder will be the corresponding userapp .desktops that can also be removed

(if you wish to start completely over just delete the mimeapps.list file or even everything in the applications folder
