== Introduction ==
Udiskie is an automatic disk mounting service using [http://www.archlinux.org/packages/?q=udisks udisks]. It can be used for mounting CDs, flash drives, and other media. It is simple to use and requires no configuration.
== Installation ==
You can install Udiskie by using the [http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=37279 udiskie] package that is found in the [[AUR]].
Start the Udiskie service by adding
  udiskie &
to your [[xinitrc]] file, before the [[window manager]] is loaded.
Once Udiskie is running, all removable media will automatically be mounted under <code>/media</code> under a new directory that matches the device name.
== Unmounting ==
Use the <code>udiskie-umount</code> command to unmount and eject 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
== Window Manager Menu Scripts ==
For convenience, you can add a script to the menu in some window managers to allow for easy access and control of removable media.
=== Openbox ===
=== Window Maker ===
Create a "Generated Submenu" entry in the root menu.
# For a Window Maker menu for removable media.
# This script will generate sub-menus for any device mounted
# under /media. You can browse the device in a file manager or
# unmount it.
# It will ignore the "cd", "dvd", and "fl" directories.
# It uses "emelFM2" file manager to browse the media.
cd /media
echo \"Media\" MENU
for i in *
  if [ "$i" != "cd" ] && [ "$i" != "dvd" ] && [ "$i" != "fl" ]
    echo \"Browse $i\" EXEC \"emelfm2 -1 \'/media/$i\'\"
for i in *
  if [ "$i" != "cd" ] && [ "$i" != "dvd" ] && [ "$i" != "fl" ]
    echo \"Unmount $i\" EXEC \"udiskie-umount \'/media/$i\'\"
echo \"Eject Disc\" EXEC \"eject --traytoggle\"
echo \"Media\" END
