#REDIRECT: [[Udisks]]
[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 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 &
+
 
+
to your [[xinitrc]] file, before the [[window manager]] is loaded.
+
 
+
Once udiskie is running, all removable media will automatically be mounted under {{ic|/media}} 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
+
