Description Dominique Michel 2012-10-05 17:31:21 UTC
pmount-gui is a simple graphical frontend for pmount;a=summary

It is no ebuild in gentoo for that small and nice program.
The source code is only abaible as a git repo, so I made 2 ebuilds, a live one, and the second one with a custom made tarball from today.

Reproducible: Always

Improved live ebuild for pmount-gui
Comment 5 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2012-10-05 19:16:31 UTC
Note: i can not see my flash disk while running pmount-gui, just message: 'No devices to mount'
Comment 6 Dominique Michel 2012-10-06 08:36:41 UTC
pmount-gui and pmount want to mount stuffs in /media. In consequence and if your flash disk is configured in /etc/fstab to be somewhere else, pmount-gui will ignore it. If not, or if the problem persist after commenting out your flash disk in fstab, the best you can do is to contact the author directly.

It is possible to trick pmount in /etc/pmount.allow with something like


if /mnt/media is configured in /etc/fstab, but this doesn't work with pmount-gui. Maybe a future improvment for this program.

Comment 8 Dominique Michel 2012-10-06 10:22:20 UTC

ebuild for a tarball from today (20121118)

This ebuild will download the tarball.
Comment 10 Dominique Michel 2012-11-18 12:10:48 UTC
repoman complain about an invalid license. I guess a new license file will be needed. It is in the tarball.
Comment 11 Dustin C. Hatch 2013-01-15 18:45:47 UTC
Please change DEPEND to virtual/udev from sys-fs/udev; this package works fine with eudev.

The ebuild is in a format that you can 'cp pmount-gui-0_pre20130806.ebuild pmount-gui-9999.ebuild' and digest it, and it will work as a live ebuild.
However I dislike -9999 ebuilds in Portage itself.
