Summary0000987: udevil
Descriptionudevil is a command line Linux program which mounts and unmounts removable devices without a password, shows device info, and monitors device changes. It can also mount ISO files, nfs://, smb://, ftp://, ssh:// and WebDAV URLs, and tmpfs/ramfs filesystems.
Intended as a hassle-free replacement for udisks
Highly configurable & security conscious
Requires no daemon running
To use it, just prefix a normal mount command with 'udevil'
Can replace udisks in the SpaceFM file manager and the devmon automounting daemon (devmon is included with udevil)
Lightweight - Written in C with libudev and glib - no dependency on udisks or gvfs
Users can specify custom mount points and mount options
Optional user mounting of nfs://, smb://, ftp://, ssh:// and WebDAV network URLs with support for username, password, port, and any other configured options
Optional user mounting of image files (ISO, etc)
Uses mount's existing command line usage - just prefix your mount command with 'udevil'. Also supports udisks v1 and v2 command line usage
Flexible - Admins can easily adjust allowed users, groups, fstypes, devices, and networks, and set default mount options and allowed mount options for each fstype, with exceptions for special users
Extensible - Allows admins to use additional custom authentication and notification scripts
Secure - Designed to limit user actions to only what you want enabled, plus easily log all system-wide uses of udevil
Detailed errors and verbose commands for quick troubleshooting
Works as SpaceFM's mount/unmount command, replacing need for pmount or udisks
Includes and works as a udisks v1 replacement for the devmon automounting daemon
Additional InformationDepends only on udev and glib and would make a great tool addition as I have found it helpful in detecting and mounting hard to mount or damaged devices that are not normally seen more information on this tool can be found at its page
also it is debian compliant
