Udisks

by Daniel Pimentel — Wed 09 September 2009

udisks provides interfaces to enumerate and perform operations on disks and storage devices. Any application (including unprivileged ones) can access the udisksd(8) daemon via the name org.freedesktop.UDisks2 on the system message bus. In addition to the D-Bus API, a library, libudisks2 is also provided. This library can be used from C/C++ and any high-level language with GObjectIntrospection support such as Javascript and Python. udisks is only indirectly involved in what devices and objects are shown in the user interface. See these notes for what is shown in GNOME 3.
