Screenshot of the USB mount options not working in System Settings

Description of problem:
Using a USB thumb drive, RHEL 7 using KDE will automatically mount removable devices that "System Settings" in KDE totally disables. 

The steps I took to disable the KDE automount, it is in System Settings -> Removable Devices -> Uncheck all 4 check boxes, Click Apply, then relogin as that same user.

You will also see in the screenshot that when the USB is in, the properties of the USB thumb drive using the "Disks" utility program, shows the "Edit Mount Options" of that drive to have "Automatic Mount Options" still set to on.

This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 3 Jan Grulich 2016-04-07 07:25:59 UTC
Is this bug still reproducible with RHEL 7.2?

Comment 4 Bill Sanford 2016-08-04 19:41:46 UTC
I just installed RHEL-7.3-20160729.1 and it is still a problem.


Comment 6 Jan Grulich 2017-09-19 19:50:31 UTC
Fixed in kde-runtime-4.10.5-10.el7.

I wasn't able to reproduce this problem after I fixed bug 1084191, but what I did is that I made automount overrides (the view with mounted devices) enabled all the time, because this forces to mount devices regardless any checkbox above. I also think that what you have configured in "Disks" utility program you mentioned has nothing to do with automount options in KDE.

Comment 9 Bill Sanford 2018-02-15 14:49:50 UTC
Verified with kde-runtime-4.10.5-11.el7
