Volume manager tries to mount device while reformatting in gparted

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – When reformatting a USB drive with gparted, my volume manager attempts to mount the device. This results in some error messages telling me the device could not be mounted. The only way I know to turn these messages off, is to temporarily disable the auto-mount options in "Removable drives and media" settings for XFce4. Changing these settings constantly gets to be troublesome. Is there a better solution? (HowTos)
