I'm a longtime FreeBSD user but my S.O. just barely uses the machines -- Pine and Firefox mostly. Doesn't even know she has a homedir or that there's a bunch of stuff in it.
She now has a digital recorder with a 1GB CF card that interfaces to computers with a USB cable and she needs to get files off of. She can plug it into USB OK but -- as her sysadm -- I have to mount it and copy the files off, then unmount. I'm looking for something like she'd get on a Mac or PC: 1. a way to automount the USB 'drive' when she plugs in 2. a visual filemanager or some other friendly way for her to see files and copy them off so she can mail them or whatnot. 3. a way to safely unmount the USB device when she's done I'm starting to play with the user-priv mounting, then will look at telling usbd to mount the drive when it sees it... Is this is the right technical solution? I've got no idea about friendly GUI/filemanager with drag-n-drop or other easy way to get files off. She's using simple olde FVWM2 now and I'd prefer not to load up a massive GUI like KDE or Gnome. I just don't know what's out there, being a command line dinosuar myself. Any recommendations? Thanks. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
