I am installing Openbox on Ubuntu 16.04 because I need to eliminate the top window bar for the application I am running. This appears to be a good solution except that the system no longer automounts USB drives. The process udisksd should be mounting the USB drives. I can logout from Openbox and login with the Unity window manager and the system will again automount USB drives. Whenever I login with Openbox the system will not automount USB drives. I have a udev rule that executes when it recognizes that the USB drive has been plugged in. I tried adding commands to the rule to mount the drive. But they do not work. The commands I have tried are basically:
- udisksctl mount --block-device /dev/sdb1
- udevil mount /dev/sdb1
These commands work from the command line but not from the udev rule.
I have also tried having the rule execute a program that executes the commands after a delay from a thread. In case it makes any difference, the USB drive is formatted with the exfat filesystem.
For the first command I get the error: "Error looking up object for device /dev/sdb1"
After the second command when I try to access the drive I get:
