How can I tell to oS 12.2 to use /media to mount hotplugged devices?
When I plug a pendrive or an usb disk, it is mounted in
/run/media/<user> and not in /media as happens in oS 12.1.

When I mount an USB device it shows up in /media on my oS 12.2, and has
never ever mounted anywhere else.
Same here.

And so the question arises: what are those people claiming otherwise running
to claim what they claim?
I have looked for this and the cause seems to be related to udisks1/2:
udisks1 (still used by KDE) mounts in /media; udisks2 (used by GNOME,
xfce, and lxde) mounts in /run/media/<user>


Aha, so it is related to other DE other than KDE.

"KDE rools!" :-)


PS As I stated, there is nothing better than consistency and uniformity in the ways things are handled..... And then people get annoyed when comments are made that Linux is for the geeks...
