New Device Notifier with Automount


Plasmoid Binary

New Device Notifier with Automount

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  3771
Submitted:  Oct 19 2008
Updated:  Sep 19 2009


An extended version of the original devicenotifier-applet which mounts the new media after it was inserted.

The volumes are mounted with special options for every filesystem. These options can be configured in the applet. The options are stored in the automountoptionsrc settings file.

Features planned for version 0.4:
* mountoptions for special volumes (depending on udi)
* select the application which is opened by the devicenotifier per filesystem and device

The plasmoid can be compiled and installed using these steps:
1. Decompress the archive
2. move to ./build
3. execute cmake ../src
4. compile with "make"
5. install it with "make install". Depending on the installation directory you configured with cmake you'll have to be root


Version 0.1
- initial version with automount
Version 0.2
- opens the default-application for the detected mimetype (should be normally inode/directory)
Version 0.3
- based on the plasmoid of KDE 4.2
Version 0.4alpha1
- based on the plasmoid of KDE 4.3
- fixed audio-cd-handling
- remounting is handled internally
- mountoptions can be configured per filesystem

 More features?

 by Emdek on: Oct 19 2008

Nice idea :-). Auto mounting could be optional (to fully replace current plasmoid).

Are there plans to add more features in the future?
Like for example assigning default action for inserted media depending on it type (something similar to behaviour of KDE 3.5)?
Or optional showing a row of icons representing each device (like KDE3 kicker applet)?
And most important question, it is currently respecting settings for application selected to opening directories or it is always using Dolphin (like original version, in KDE 4.1)?

These features would be great :-).

 just an idea

just a suggestion,
I love the small banner on the top of the applet (Kate applet and others applets with a popup should use the same) but it would be great if this banner is displayed in the bottom of the popup when the applet is located in a panel at the top of the screen (actually, all widgets vertically stacked should be inversed when a popup is located in the top of the screen)

maybe dumb question but why is there no "unmount" or "safely remove" option? Is this because of how Linux hanldles this kind of media (ie - there is no buffering, everything is written immeadiatly so just removing it will not cause any data loss).

There is an unmountoption. The applet has the same options the original "New Device Notifier"-applet has.

If you move your mouse on a mounted device you get an unmount-button on the device-entry.

I have found a package for Kubuntu 8.10 in a PPA.


Nice Plasmoid! It should replace the official.

 Use konqueror inst. of dolphin

this one is very usefull but I did not find a way to configure it.
Is it feasible and more particularly is it possible to change the opener to be Konqueror instead of Dolphin ?

The notifier doesn't seem to respect the setting for inode set in KDE settings panel.

i don't know much about programming, but it seems it must be added something here


if (filesystem == "vfat")
kDebug() << "Mount: VFAT";
options << "noexec";
options << "fmask=0133";
options << "dmask=0022";
options << "uid=" + QString::number(getuid());

but what should i add????

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
