This one's part anecdote, party question: I just recently got Ubuntu 9.10 running on a box I plan to use as a build server. I've been working with a system that's booting off an SD card lately, so my build process is normally make a change, mount SD card, copy new boot image, unmount SD card, put card in system, boot. Obviously, this requires a lot of mounting an unmounting of media drives as my development process goes on. I eventually plan to run my build server headless, so for now I've got my monitor attached to a KVM switch which in turn is attached to my build server and my workstation, and I've been doing most of my work on my workstation, ssh'd into my build server.
I noticed that as time went on, my build server started to really slow down. I flipped my KVM switch to take a look at it and realized, with much surprise, that Ubuntu had opened up a new window for every time that I had mounted my SD card. As I hadn't had my monitor flipped to my build server for about a week, I had somewhere in the range of 50 windows open on the desktop, all with errors about that location no longer existing.
Now for the question: How do I go about changing Ubuntu's media automount behavior? I like that my SD card is being mounted each time I plug it in, but I want to disable its default behavior of opening the media in a file explorer each time it mounts. Unfortunately, trying to type Ubuntu mount behavior or ubuntu automount windows into google gives very misleading results. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
