[SOLVED][Debian apt-get install] How to hide/ignore squashfs file system type?

See original GitHub issue


I have created a config.yaml as per Man Page to use udiskie in Debian Stretch 9.9 amd64. udiskie works excellent. The doubt is how to hide/ignore squashfs fstype since all my snap apps are loaded as squashfs. lsblk -lf command shows it. When clicking on the tray icon a large nested list shows with 21 snaps, eg. /dev/loop0: /var/lib...snap

Any ideas on how to hide them that does not have to do with using 21 times…

- device_file: /dev/loop0
  ignore:      false

is appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

I don’t know how to restart udiskie. What I do is run it and then either Ctrl+D, modify config file and run again or run it, click icon and click Exit button.

that should be fine (Ctrl+C / exit).

This time I have done reboot computer an run… Here is the verification:

myuser@mycomputer:~$ udiskie -v
DEBUG [2019-05-02 14:44:14,826] udiskie.config: IgnoreDevice(match={'symlinks': '/dev/mapper/docker-*'}, value=True) created
DEBUG [2019-05-02 14:44:14,826] udiskie.config: IgnoreDevice(match={'symlinks': '/dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-docker-*'}, value=True) created
DEBUG [2019-05-02 14:44:14,826] udiskie.config: IgnoreDevice(match={'is_loop': True, 'loop_file': '/*'}, value=False) created

Doesn’t seem to use the defined filters. Now that I see this, I recall that udiskie learned device_config only recently. Try to replace device_config by ignore_device: instead (same syntax).

If you need additional data or all all data as indicated in Debug section, I can gladly provide it. Anything.

Regards and thanks,

You can write something in the wiki. Other than that, there are currently no coherent docs anyway (I might add some from the wiki at some point) and I’d rather not document old syntax that I want to remove eventually in the man pages.
