Previously, I wrote about using udisks-glue to auto mount removable media on Ubuntu Server 12.04.  The same process works for 14.04, but udisks-glue needs to be built from source instead of installed via apt-get.

# install dependencies and required packages
sudo apt-get install udisks libdbus-glib-1-dev libglib2.0-dev
sudo apt-get install libconfuse-dev autoconf automake pkg-config
sudo apt-get install build-essential git

# get source and build
git clone
cd udisks-glue
./configure --prefix=/usr
sudo make install

The /usr prefix is used to keep the location consistent with 12.04 (by default it installs to /usr/local).  Once udisks-glue is installed, create /etc/udisks-glue.conf, add an init script, and you’re done.
