Revision of Manage the removable media on Gnome from Fri, 01/11/2008 - 06:01

gnome-volume-manager is the Gnome daemon in charge of controlling how removable media is going to be treated in Linux (When using Gnome)

And to control how this daemon is going to act, can be used gnome-volume-properties this command can be invoked from the command line:

gnome-volume-properties

or from the menu

System->Preferences->Removable Drives and Media

aptitude install gnome-volume-manager

This is how it will look like.

gnome-volume-properties
