Disable Photo Import in Ubuntu

(Olympus E510 Marseille, France. Street)



Every time I insert a SD card ( or CF card) into my Linux box, it shows up a "Photo Import" dialog to ask me if I want to import photos directly. However, I never used this function, so it turns out to be nothing more than an annoying notification.

To my surprise, it's quite easy to turn it off (though you have to know how to do it). From the command-line, call gnome-volume-properties to set up attributes. One of the checkboxes is to allow you turn on/off this feature. Uncheck it, and it's done. No more un-necessary pop-ups. :)
