Every time I plug a USB stick in, nautilus opens a new window with the contents of the drive. I would like to disable this auto-opening of the nautilus window, but I would like the actual auto-mount to keep working. Is this possible?
The simplest option is to open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T, and type:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.media-handling automount-open false
Turns out, it is. You will need
dconf-editor tool, which can be installed by with
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools. Run
dconf-editor in your terminal. Browse to org -> gnome -> desktop - media-handling. Uncheck
The setting corresponding to izx's to disable automatically launching
nemo in the
cinnamon desktop is:
gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.media-handling automount-open false
Using GUI in debian gnome desktop:
dconf-editor then go to
org -> gnome -> desktop - media-handling.
There uncheck automount.
