[https://github.com/coldfix/udiskie udiskie] is an automatic disk mounting service using {{Pkg|udisks}}. It can be used for mounting CDs, flash drives, and other media. It even handles password protected [[Dm-crypt/Device_encryption|LUKS devices]]. It is simple to use and requires no configuration.
== Installation ==
You can [[pacman|install]] udiskie by using the {{Pkg|udiskie}} package that is found in the [[official repositories]].
Start the udiskie service by adding:
udiskie --tray &
to your [[xinitrc]] file, before the [[window manager]] is loaded. The tray icon is optional and requires the {{Pkg|gtk3}} package to be installed. If you want to use {{Pkg|udisks2}}, start udiskie with:
udiskie -2 --tray &
Once udiskie is running, all removable media will automatically be mounted under {{ic|/media}} (or {{ic|/run/media/<username>}} for udisks2) under a new directory that matches the device name.
== Unmounting ==
Use the <code>udiskie-umount</code> command to unmount media. For example, for a device named "MY_USB_DRIVE":
udiskie-umount /media/MY_USB_DRIVE
Or, you can unmount all media with the command:
udiskie-umount -a
== Manual mounting ==
The command <code>udiskie-mount</code> can be used to mount devices manually if udiskie is not running in the background:
udiskie-mount /dev/sdb1
