[Bug 1011257] Re: x-gvfs-show option doesn't work


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1012081 ***

Mentioned in #1012081, there is a new version for util-linux available via a ppa.
I installed that new version: The entry in fstab created by gnome-disk-utility (v 3.10.0) when "Show in user interface" is checked, "x-gvfs-show" still causes problems at boot, but, now, adding "comment=" according to post 22 works.
The developers did not agree on the interface here. 
So, it is only partially a duplicate of bug #1012081.

  x-gvfs-show option doesn't work

Status in gnome-disk-utility package in Ubuntu:
Status in gnome-disk-utility source package in Raring:

Bug description:
  was reporting a separate bug #1010858 about double icons appearing for
  mounted filesystems, and it occurred to me that it was happening for
  volumes I had listed in /etc/fstab with uhelper=udisks, the mechanism
  i used in previous versions to mount internal drives and see them in
  launcher etc.

  In investigating, I found the apparently-new gnome-disk-utility
  "Disks" and that seems to have new options for doing this properly,
  but when I tried to use them in closest-to-default way, it failed.

  The attached screenshot shows the options I had set on a volume. Below
  is the line that generated in /etc/fstab:

  LABEL=Spinner /mnt/Spinner auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0

  It fails to mount when you try to mount it in the disk utility. An
  error dialogue opens with:

  Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdg1: Command-line `mount "/mnt/Spinner"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdg1,
         missing codepage or helper program, or other error
         In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
         dmesg | tail  or so

   (udisks-error-quark, 0)

  dmesg | tail gives:

  [  619.470006] EXT4-fs (sdg1): Unrecognized mount option "x-gvfs-show"
  or missing value

  I expect the bug isn't so much in the disk utility app itself as in
  the underlying mount tools that have probably been compiled without a
  required option, but the user experience is that it fails when using
  the disk utility, hence reporting it here for now.

  I suspect I can make this work a different way using prior knowledge,
  to make it mount in /media and using uhelper=udisks2 - will be trying
  that in a moment - but this seemed the logical, minimal way to proceed
  for the new utility and it failed.
