I'm writing this request because i think it would be, in some usecases, a good option to have in thunar-volman.
Feature requested : The possibility to chose to receive a notification (via libnotify) instead of having thunar to open, when an HDD is mounted (the same can apply to any volume / action associated with it).
Exemples of usecase : -I've got some VM virtual disks on my external HDD and i tend to forget to plug it before i open virtualbox. I don't need thunar to open once it is mounted, but I'd like to be notified when it is actually mounted so that i can launch my VM.
-When i mount my USB key, i usually already opened thunar as i was browsing files when i noticed i would need it. I don't see the point of having a thunar window opening and unfocusing mine when i'm a click away from my usb key.
These are the two main usecases I can think of : either you have thunar opened or you intend to browse your device from another app that the one thumnar-volman would use, but you still want to know when the device is mounted.
I don't think it'd be very memory consuming or hard to implement, I'm even willing to work on it this summer if needed.
