How to configure USBMount

USBMount is a useful program and daemon that can be used to automount disk drives and flash drives plugged into USB ports. I use it with Raspbian for this purpose.

All the settings of USBMount can be changed from its configuration file /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf

The parameters that can be modified from this file:

  • ENABLED: 1 to enable, 0 to disable USBMount.

  • MOUNTPOINTS: String of space-delimited mount points that should be used.

  • FILESYSTEMS: String of space-delimited filesystems that should be mounted.

  • MOUNTOPTIONS: String of comma-delimited mount options that will be used with the mount program to mount all the filesystems.

  • FS_MOUNTOPTIONS: Mount options that are specific to particular filesystem.

  • VERBOSE: no is no logging, yes is logged to /var/syslog

Tried with: USBMount 0.0.22 and Raspbian 7
