For Mounting with Executable permission
For those of you (like me) who wants to have executable permission to be set upon mounting, so that you can have options for execute a file with double-clicking , Add this extra bit of options with
So, the total line for
/dev/sda2 should be like this (tested on 13.04)
udisks --mount /dev/sda2 --mount-options=umask=022

Note: Change for Ubuntu 14.04 and later

The mount command is --
udisksctl mount -b /dev/sda2
(in the case your targeted partition is
-b is indicating that it is a block device
To enable executable permission ---
udisksctl mount -b /dev/sda2 -o umask=022
-o indicating that following are options for udisksctl).
You can access the man page of udisksctl with
man udisksctl command or read it online here!
