    Default Automount external drive in openSUSE 13.1

    Hello there openSUSE users!

    Today i installed openSUSE with minimal X and openbox on my laptop. Now I am just wondering, how can I configure automount external disks. Can you help me with that ? I do not have any ideas how can I make it.

    There are a few different actions/features that are called "automount" (in a more or less precise way of wording). When this is about the mounting done for the desktop end-user when (s)he connects a mass-storage device, then please at least tell us which desktop environment you use.

    Being not an openbox user I can only point you to what I found. In this
    thread (last post) http://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=1209.0
    the user installs udiskie and adds a "udikie &" to the autostart.
    udiskie is not available as a package but here
    https://pypi.python.org/pypi/udiskie
    as it is a python program there should not be much trouble to install it
    from source.
    Maybe I give that myself a try on one machine where I use fluxbox.
