Class

GioMountOperation

Description [src]

class Gio.MountOperation : GObject.Object {
  parent_instance: GObject,
  priv: GMountOperationPrivate*
}

GMountOperation provides a mechanism for interacting with the user. It can be used for authenticating mountable operations, such as loop mounting files, hard drive partitions or server locations. It can also be used to ask the user questions or show a list of applications preventing unmount or eject operations from completing.

Note that GMountOperation is used for more than just GMount objects – for example it is also used in g_drive_start() and g_drive_stop().

Users should instantiate a subclass of this that implements all the various callbacks to show the required dialogs, such as GtkMountOperation. If no user interaction is desired (for example when automounting filesystems at login time), usually NULL can be passed, see each method taking a GMountOperation for details.

The term ‘TCRYPT’ is used to mean ‘compatible with TrueCrypt and VeraCrypt’. TrueCrypt is a discontinued system for encrypting file containers, partitions or whole disks, typically used with Windows. VeraCrypt is a maintained fork of TrueCrypt with various improvements and auditing fixes.

Properties

Gio.MountOperation:anonymous

Whether to use an anonymous user when authenticating.

Gio.MountOperation:choice

The index of the user’s choice when a question is asked during the mount operation. See the GMountOperation::ask-question signal.

Gio.MountOperation:domain

The domain to use for the mount operation.

Gio.MountOperation:is-tcrypt-hidden-volume

Whether the device to be unlocked is a TCRYPT hidden volume. See the VeraCrypt documentation.

Available since: 2.58

Gio.MountOperation:is-tcrypt-system-volume

Whether the device to be unlocked is a TCRYPT system volume. In this context, a system volume is a volume with a bootloader and operating system installed. This is only supported for Windows operating systems. For further documentation, see the VeraCrypt documentation.

Available since: 2.58

Gio.MountOperation:password

The password that is used for authentication when carrying out the mount operation.

Gio.MountOperation:password-save

Determines if and how the password information should be saved.

Gio.MountOperation:pim

The VeraCrypt PIM value, when unlocking a VeraCrypt volume. See the VeraCrypt documentation.

Available since: 2.58

Gio.MountOperation:username

The user name that is used for authentication when carrying out the mount operation.

Signals

Gio.MountOperation::aborted

Emitted by the backend when e.g. a device becomes unavailable while a mount operation is in progress.

Available since: 2.20

Gio.MountOperation::ask-password

Emitted when a mount operation asks the user for a password.

Gio.MountOperation::ask-question

Emitted when asking the user a question and gives a list of choices for the user to choose from.

Gio.MountOperation::reply

Emitted when the user has replied to the mount operation.

Gio.MountOperation::show-processes

Emitted when one or more processes are blocking an operation e.g. unmounting/ejecting a GMount or stopping a GDrive.

Available since: 2.22

Gio.MountOperation::show-unmount-progress

Emitted when an unmount operation has been busy for more than some time (typically 1.5 seconds).

Available since: 2.34
