User can modify mount and umount command, see preferences dialog. In order to, if usermount is set, user can use mount command without sudo. xfce4-mount-plugin reads mount points from /etc/fstab, it can't mount new devices. If you need plugin wich detects new devices like CDRom, USB stick, ...., i think you must use xfce4-genmon-plugin with your own shell script or sysutils/automounter. If you known C, you can also look to GIO (it's part of GLib) , there're functions for mount devices.  http://developer.gnome.org/gio/2.28/volume_mon.html > > I also added the following patch, although I'm still uncertain whether it's > a better default: > > sed -i '' -e \ > 's|on_mount_cmd = g_strdup("")|on_mount_cmd = g_strdup("thunar > %m") > work/xfce4-mount-plugin-*/panel-plugin/mount-plugin.c You can also use g_spawn_command_line_sync() function .  http://developer.gnome.org/glib/2.28/glib-Spawning-Processes.html#g-spawn-command-line-sync > > Would you be amenable to changing the default behavior of the port to > eliminate the need for users to do manual configuration?
