I have installed udisks2 on a minimal Raspbian Strech image, but I can't find any doc to understand how to configure it in order to have USB automounted device.

Any help?


If you have installed udisks2 from the default Raspbian repository with:

rpi ~$ sudo apt install udisks2

For a first overview look at

rpi ~$ apt show udisks2

I would suggest for the first steps to start with udisksctl. You will also find the default documentation in /usr/share/doc/udisks2 and within the man pages. There are three man pages installed:

  • man udisks
  • man udisksctl
  • man udisksd

If it does not help enough then in man udisks you will find a list with 12 links to further sources.

    Of course I went through all that documentation before posting the question. It did only increase my confusion. – Fabio Marzocca Feb 15 '19 at 13:31
  • No doc in the folder you pointed to. Only a generic README – Fabio Marzocca Mar 15 '19 at 12:41
  • @FabioMarzocca I have updated my answer. Please ask google for udisks2 configuration. I have found some sites providing information about it. Isn't automount working out of the box after installation? I would say just start with a configuration and if there are problems ask for help at unix.stackexchange.com. – Ingo Mar 15 '19 at 23:44
  • @Ingo UDisks2 does not do automounting; You need wrappers to do that, if this page is to be believed: wiki.archlinux.org/title/udisks ? – dirac bracket May 4 at 4:11
