Basenji Gets A Scanner Daemon Which Automatically Adds Inserted Volumes To The Database

Basenji is a tool which indexes your removable media such as CDs/DVDs and USB sticks and keeps a history of the data on each media you add to its database so you can later easily search / browse for something on your CDs/DVDs or USB sticks without actually plugging them into your computer.


When we wrote about Basenji, a lot of people requested a daemon which automatically scans a device you plug in and adds it to the Basenji database. Well, The Basenji PPA has been updated and it now features a package called volumedb-tools which can do this.
