       udiskie - automounter for removable media


       udiskie [OPTIONS]

       udiskie-mount [OPTIONS] (-a | DEVICE...)

       udiskie-umount [OPTIONS] (-a | PATH...)


       udiskie is a front-end for UDisks written in python. Its main purpose is automatically
       mounting removable media, such as CDs or flash drives. It has optional mount
       notifications, a GTK tray icon and user level CLIs for manual mount and unmount
       operations. The media will be mounted in a new directory under /media or /run/media/USER/,
       using the device name if possible.

       Start udiskie in ~/.xinitrc:

           udiskie &

       Unmount media and power down USB device:

           udiskie-umount --detach /media/Sticky

       Mount all media:

           udiskie-mount -a

       Mount /dev/sdb1:

           udiskie-mount /dev/sdb1


       The file .config/udiskie/config.yml can be used to configure defaults for command line
       parameters and customize further settings. The actual path may differ depending on
       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME. The file format is YAML, see If you
       don’t want to install PyYAML, it is possible to use an equivalent JSON file with the name
       config.json instead.

               # manner. Each string will be formatted using str.format with a
               # Device object as the first argument. For a list of device
               # attributes, see below. The two special string values

             # List of mount option rules. Only the first matching entry is
             # used. Each item can match any combination of device attributes
             # (see below). Additionally, it must define an 'options' list. An
             # item without any device attributes serves as a catch-all rule.

             # Customize udiskie's ignore rules. This config entry has the
             # same structure as *mount_options*, the only difference being
             # that the action is defined by the 'ignore' field which is a
             # boolean defaulting to true. The rules defined here are simply
             # prepended to the builtin ignore rules, so that it is possible
             # to completely overwrite the defaults by specifying a catch-all
             # rule.

             device_unmounted: false   # unmount notification
             device_added:     false   # device has appeared

             job_failed:       -1      # mount/unlock/.. has failed

             # Define which actions should be shown on notifications. Note that there
             # are currently only a limited set of actions available for each
             # notification. Events that are not explicitly specified show the default
             # set of actions. Specify an empty list if you don't want to see any
             # notification for the specified event:

             device_mounted:   [browse]
             device_added:     [mount]

             # Customize the icon set used by the tray widget. Each entry
             # specifies a list of icon names. The first installed icon from
             # that list will be used.

             media:   [drive-removable-media, media-optical]
             browse:  [document-open, folder-open]
             mount:   [udiskie-mount]

             detach:  [udiskie-detach]
             quit:    [application-exit]

       All keys are optional. Reasonable defaults are used if you leave them unspecified.


       Some of the config entries make use of Device attributes. The following list of attributes
       is currently available, but there is no guarantee that they will remain available:

           device_id               unique, persistent device identifer
           id_usage                E.g. "filesystem" or "crypto"
