1 Hello,
3 My thumbdrive has been mounting fine, but recently it started mounting
4 with strange characters in it's name.
6 I'm using pcmanfm inside of awesome wm. I have the latest stable
7 xorg-server compiled with udev. My thumbdrive mounts as /media/
9 I can't copy+paste the symbols (although I tried, but mutt/vim doesn't
10 show them). It's difficult to explain, but it looks like the characters
11 000E inside of a 1 pixel stroke square box. inside the terminal it
12 appears as a question mark. ie. /media/?
14 I've tried to write a udev rule to combat this, but to no avail. These
15 are the rules I've tried. The drive is /dev/sdf1, and it's
16 product is "Cruzer Titanium+"
18 SUBSYSTEM=="usb", KERNEL=="sd?1", NAME="usb/flashdisk", SYMLINK="usb%k"
20 I've also tried this.
21 SUBSYSTEM=="usb", KERNEL=="sd[a-z]1", ATTRS{product}=="Cruzer Titanium+",
22 NAME="usb/flashdisk", SYMLINK="%k"
24 I found it very difficult to research the proper syntax for udev. A lot
25 of the examples on the net are outdated.
27 Any advice or pointers would be most appreciated.
29 Thanks for your time,
30 Alan
