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:

Note that some of the drives I mounted would initially only have write permissions for root and not for other users. The solution was to change the ownership to my user, for example: sudo chown joe:joe /media/usb2.

Tried with: USBMount 0.0.22 and Raspbian 7
