Description of problem:

System>Preferences>Removable Drives and Media

If you check "Auto-run programs on new drives and media", this doesn't actually
have any effect because gnome-mount mounts items with noexec.  We should figure
out a better solution here.

Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2006-04-05 23:09:57 EDT
Yup, we should fix this.

See also my comments to bug 188091 which is blocking this one.
Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2006-09-28 19:33:29 EDT
Actually in Rawhide with gnome-mount 0.5 and hal you can now do

 gnome-mount -d /dev/sda1 -oremount,exec

which g-v-m should do when wanting to run programs on some media. Reassigning to
g-v-m so we can fix this during FC7.

This is fixed in the current packages, according to David.
