udiskie is a simple daemon that uses udisks to automatically mount removable storage devices.

Maintainer Wanted

I'm not longer using udiskie on my systems. The code still works, but it's been neglected for a while.


udiskie requires permission for the org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount as well as the org.freedesktop.udisks.luks-unlock action. This is usually granted in sessions launched with ConsoleKit support. If run outside a desktop manager with ConsoleKit support, the permission can be granted using PolicyKit by creating a file called 10-udiskie.pkla in /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d with these contents:


This configuration allows all members of the storage group to run udiskie.

Alternatively, to allow these actions to be executed for inactive sessions, modify the file /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks.policy. Make sure to change the setting for allow_inactive to 'yes':

<action id="org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount">
  <description>Mount a device</description>
  <message>Authentication is required to mount the device</message>


<action id="org.freedesktop.udisks.luks-unlock">
  <description>Unlock an encrypted device</description>
  <message>Authentication is required to unlock an encrypted device</message>
