I want to mount usb drives with option flush (or sync).

I'm using Kubuntu 10.10 and as far as I understood udisks is responsible for the mount options. I've read various threads and two solutions are proposed:

  1. edit fstab for every usb drive,
  2. change default options in drives.c of the udisks package.

Is there really no decent way?


I think there isn't.

But you can try a workaround: using udev rules to override the udisks options by creating your own /etc/udev/rules.d/*.rules file; for details see this great Archlinux site.

  • Should I create that file 11-media-by-label-auto-mount.rules? I have only the 70-persistent-cd.rules and 70-persistent-net.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d/. – Tom Brito Sep 19 '11 at 16:28

There seems to be a promising workaround: udisks-glue. See the man page for it's configuration file: udisks-glue.conf. I haven't tried it yet, but it may well be solution. It accepts mount options, but also a "post_mount_command".
