I'm writing a backup script in which I need to mount a drive in the media bay of my laptop.



I know that I can get the job done by messing with fstab and the mount command. Perhaps that's the easiest way. Anyway, I'm interested in the following:




  1. Initially the media bay drive is unmounted.


  2. I click on the drive in the side-panel in a nautilus window and the drive is mounted.


  3. I can access it at /media/baydrive.







My question:



Is there an easy way of performing step 2 from the command line? I.e., mount the drive to /media/<device name> without messing with fstab.

Try udisks --mount <device name>



To mount by partition label, you can do



udisks --mount /dev/disk/by-label/baydrive
