http://askubuntu.com – Good day! I was looking for a way to quickly mount a USB Drive as READ ONLY. I see lots of issues of people having it mount read only when they do want to but in my case I need to ensure the USB device mounts in a READ ONLY state. Is there a way to set hot keys during USB plug in (CTRL-R for example) to force autmount into READ ONLY? Currently I use: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.media-handling automount false to disable automounting and then I run the mount command with read only options. Im just looking for a faster way! Thanks! GR (HowTos)
