'No removable device' [SOLVED]

#1 Post by turtlebay777 » Sun May 27, 2018 2:26 am

When my MX 17.1 starts I always get a box on the desktop that says No removable device. Is there a terminal command which will stop it and maybe also prevent it from doing whatever it's doing that that is the result?

I presume you are booting in systemd mode.

See this post.

Perfect, thank you.

I prefer systemd mode on this laptop due to a screen video recorder I use (Vokoscreen) crashing the system when I use the sysVinit, despite trying other kernels.

Linux is often about experimenting and adapting the system to one's own needs, no 'one glove fits all' as in Windows.
