I tried follow steps which worked in 18.04 but it does not work for 19.10:

    Create a file /etc/dconf/pofile/local with following content:
    # cat /etc/dconf/pofile/local

    Create a file /etc/dconf/db/local.d/00-media-automount with following content:

    # cat /etc/dconf/db/local.d/00-media-automount

    After creating the file, apply the changes using below command :

    # dconf update

In 18.04 we can find the new rules in dconf dump / but in 19.10 it does not show the newly added rules in local.d. dconf-editor still give true for those 2 values which are the defaults.

Any idea how to make the gnome respect local.d again?


Ah, I just figured it out. The DCONF_PROFILE has to be set to the profile file name. Here it needs to be local. If it is not set, by default it is looking for /etc/dconf/profile/user. Thus change the file name to user is a better choice.

easier option: run dconf-editor, go to org.gnome.desktop.media-handling
