I'm in agreement with Vincent on this - I think it'd be best to move our
CDs/DVDs to the standard autorun method.

Ok - coolo might be able to point us in the right direction on the
autorun methods.

Since 2.22, nautilus handle the autorun/automount/etc. for lots of

upstream is changing this.

We need to patch gnome-volume-manager to not do this job too. See
This causes problem like this:
(and also the fact that two nautilus windows get opened)

I'm going to submit a package for this right now because it's a quite
visible problem. But there's a problem...

Doing this means that another g-v-m patch becomes useless (I'll keep
it for now, though). It's suse-autorun.patch. It checks if the media
contains or media.1/patches and run something with gnomesu if
this is the case. I guess this is used for updates.

There are two ways to fix this: either patch nautilus to keep in the
same way or change the relevant cd/dvd to have a file called .autorun,
autorun or I'd prefer the latter, since it's standardized in
the fd.o autostart spec. I'm sure we can fix this for 11.0, but I'm not
sure that's enough: are there any media that we can't change to this new
autostart method?

Jeff Steadfast should know and could even do an upstream release for us
with your patches.
