Description of problem:
cd-capplet doesn't allow you to enable/disable the "Open file manager ..."
option when "Automount ..." is disabled. However, if "Open file man..." is
enabled, magicdev will still open a file manager for manually mounted CD
even though it's automounter is off. The same may be true for the Autorun
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run magicdev with the automounter disabled
2. Try to enable/disable File Manager opening
Actual Results: Doesn't allow you to change the setting. The checked state
is visible, but you have to check automount temporarily to be able to
Additional suggestions for magicdev:
It might be good to have user-configurable auto-run command, possibly a
priory-order regexp list, or maybe even launch apps by a file pattern that
could for example detect and play VCD/DVD movies.
Magicdev should only try to mount a new disc once. Sometimes it may be
useful to unmount an inserted disc, and have magicdev leave it alone, if at
all possible to do via it's polling method. (Actually, the automount part
is better off in a system daemon, like vold or mediad.)
Think the first is a nautilus bug, haven't tried to reproduce yet.
(Nautilus doesn't actually use magicdev the same way as mc, with
nautilus, some parts are done by magicdev, some emulated by
Nautilus bug is same as bug 62899
Closing bug. Magicdev has been removed in favor of
gnome-volume-manager in the development branch.
