I'm trying to prevent my USB flashdrive from getting automounted upon insertion.

I've already set automount to false under org.gnome.desktop.media-handling, yet the flash drive continues to get mounted automatically.

I'm on Ubuntu 12.10.

  • I've got the same problem with 14.04. Disabled both org.gnome.desktop.media-handling.automount and org.gnome.desktop.media-handling.automount-open, and the drive is still mounted. – Luke Quinane Sep 1 '14 at 2:48

You can maybe use "dconf" to do that:

  • As I mentioned in my question I already made that setting. – Isaac Kleinman Apr 12 '13 at 19:05
