Default Can't setup usbmount on Ubuntu 12.04.1 LST

Hi,

on my newly installed Ubuntu 12.04.1 LST system I removed unity because
I prefer Window Maker.

Now I must to setup some things, like automount USB sticks.

I installed the usbmount package and setup it in
/etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf file:

ENABLED=1
MOUNTPOINTS="/media/usb0 /media/usb1 /media/usb2 /media/usb3
/media/usb4 /media/usb5 /media/usb6 /media/usb7"
FILESYSTEMS="vfat ext2 ext3 ext4 hfsplus"
MOUNTOPTIONS="sync,noexec,nodev,noatime,nodiratime ,rw"
FS_MOUNTOPTIONS="-fstype=vfat,gid=floppy,dmask=0007,fmask=0117"
VERBOSE=no

Now, when I plug the USB Stick I can't open it's directory:
/media/usb0

It has permissions:
$ ls -l /media

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 aug 30 10:46 usb -> usb0
drwxrwx--- 2 root floppy 4096 jan 1 1970 usb0

I added my username to floppy group by running 'sudo vigr' and 'sudo
vigr -s'.

In the syslog I have these messages:

Aug 30 11:20:27 ubuntucsp kernel: [15046.346009] sd 15:0:0:0: [sdc]

When I changed the /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf file to:
VERBOSE=yes

I get followings messages:

What is the solution?

In the first instance, the usb stick will be designated as dev/sddX[***]
and not usb0.


Secondly, the usb stick has to be formatted and when you do this it will
have a partition sdd1.


Assuming that you youself have not formatted it (for, say, ext4, it
would be formatted at factory to vfat) so if you want to mount it you
would, in a terminal, issue this command:


mount -t vfat /dev/sdd1 /media

and you should then be able to access it.

HOWEVER, I will bet my bottom dollar that you will only be able to
access it if you were root because the usb is "owned" at the moment by
root. So, if you want to access it as a user then, as root, issue these
commands (in a terminal):


chown -R <youruserloginname>.group /dev/sdd1 [ENTER]

chmod -R u=rwx,g=rx,o= /dev/sdd1 [Enter]

and you will then be able to access it as a user.

Oh, there is no need to do anything about any entries in fstab for it
because it will be mounted as soon as you plug it in.


[***] The allocation of the 'sd' depends on what other devices you have
on your system. For example if you have 2 HDDs and a CDROM reader and
DEV writer these will be 'named; sda, sdb, sdc, sdd so the USB stick
will end up being sde - if you see what I mean.

/media/usb0 is the mount point only.

The USB was formatted as fat32 filesystem so in 'usbmount.config' are
lines for this:
FS_MOUNTOPTIONS="-fstype=vfat,gid=floppy,dmask=0007,fmask=0117"

I don't want to mount it but want to ,et it mount automatically by
'usbmount'.

As I said, I'm using 'usbmount' so I should not mount it manually, right?

Maybe I didn't mentioned before: I purged nautilus and as many as I
could Unity's stuff. So, when I plug it in, it is automounted because I
have now installed usbmount.

But, only root can acces the USB drive, however /media/usb0 as a
mountpoint has permissions root:floppy and my username is in hte
'floppy' group. Still I don't understand why can access the drive as
root only?

The usb drive is present in mtab as:
/dev/sdc1 /media/usb0 vfat
rw,noexec,nodev,sync,noatime,nodiratime,gid=25,dma sk=0007,fmask=0117 0 0

Change these to read, "dmask=0000, fmask=0111".
