Get notifications on GNOME 3 shell, when it automatically mounts.



It can be ENABLED / DISABLED by going to Startup Applications.

[type 'startup applications' after pressing super-key or windows-key on keyboard]


Type 'auto-mount settings' after pressing super-key / windows key.

I did go to the link. The information on the linked page was not informative enough for me to download.

Also, remoulder is correct. Up-to-date information, particularly for the Ubuntu users, would be helpful.

ManuRahim, Maybe if you updated the information, and do what remoulder suggested, the tutorial would be more beneficial to other users

I'm using Linux Mint Sonya, the latest. Its working for me. I dint say, I invented this software. I searched google, when I got trouble in auto mounting my drives. This technique worked for me. So I shared it to other users. Its not copy paste.

Firstly copying text from other sites does not make it your tutorial, and a link to the original page would suffice.
Secondly your suggestion is deprecated 6 year old software that may not even work in recent releases of mint/ubuntu, and which have built in tools to do the same thing.
