pmount

mount removable devices as normal user

Variants:
pmount is a wrapper around the standard mount program which permits normal users to mount removable devices without a matching /etc/fstab entry. This provides a robust basis for automounting frameworks like GNOME's Utopia project and confines the amount of code that runs as root to a minimum.

This package also contains a wrapper "pmount-hal" which reads some information like device labels and mount options from hal and passes them to pmount. Install the package "hal" if you want to use this feature.

If a LUKS capable cryptsetup package is installed, pmount is able to transparently mount encrypted volumes.

So, for every user who should be able to execute pmount, please
execute the following command (as root):

   adduser <user> plugdev

(with replacing "<user>" by the respec
