Ubuntu – disable USB automount

Hate it when Ubuntu unnecessarily mounts USB drives when you are doing some R&D.

Here’s a quick way to disable it.

$ gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount false

You can also use gconf-editor to set it to false. Once done, just set it to true again to make it auto-mount.
