USB drives don't auto-mount without HDMI


#1

Hi,
I noticed that USB drives do not automatically mount if HDMI monitor is NOT plugged in, why is it so? How can we fix it? I am using linaro-vivid-alip-qcom-snapdragon-arm64-20150930-102 & boot-linaro-vivid-qcom-snapdragon-arm64-20150930-102.

Thanks
Ashwin

hi,

I think that the auto-mount is a feature of the Linux desktop / file explorer application. When there is no HDMI, you are not logged in, and that explains why this ‘feature’ isn’t working.

You can probably get automount to work by using a udev rule and/or udisks, i would believe.
