I upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10, and now my disk automount as /media/user/uuid

When I was on 12.04, it was simply /media/uuid [uuid or label], and I would like to change it back.


Oct 21 23:08:53 dv6 udisksd[2562]: Mounted /dev/sdc1 at /media/matt/1Dxxxxxxxxxx2CA1 on behalf of uid 1000

However if I umount, and run

udisks --mount /dev/sdc1

it then mounts as /media/1Dxxxxxxxxxx2CA1, which is exactly what I want. I looked for some kind of udisksd conf file, but I couldn't find anything.

Rather stupidly, you have to go and create a new file in /etc/udev/rules.d/

I called mine 20-media-by-label-auto-mount.rules instead of 11-media... but up to you, and wrote the configuration file at How to configure to record data to pendrive instantly?

This seemed to solve the problem for me, anyway.
