Nautilus window opens after device usb connection. But this is not a storage device. It's even not mounted. It just takes some power supply via USB. How to disable automatic window opening after not mounting?



Bring up a terminal window, then install dconf-editor package.

sudo apt-get install dconf-editor && dconf-editor

Navigate to org > gnome > desktop > media-handling, uncheck automount-open option on the key list.
