udisksctl is a command-line program used to interact with the udisksd(8) daemon process. COMMANDS
status Shows high-level information about disk drives and block devices. info Shows detailed information about OBJECT or DEVICE. mount Mounts a device. The device will be mounted in a subdirectory in the /media hierarchy - upon successful completion, the mount point will be printed to standard output. The device will be mounted with a safe set of default options. You can influence the options passed to the mount(8) command with --options. Note that only safe options are allowed - requests with inherently unsafe options such as suid or dev that would allow the caller to gain additional privileges, are rejected. unmount Unmounts a device. This only works if the device is mounted. The option --force can be used to request that the device is unmounted even if active references exists. unlock Unlocks an encrypted device. The passphrase will be requested from the controlling terminal and upon successful completion, the cleartext device will be printed to standard output. lock Locks a device. This only works if the device is a cleartext device backed by a cryptotext device. loop-setup Sets up a loop device backed by FILE. loop-delete Tears down a loop device. smart-simulate Sets SMART data from the libatasmart blob given by FILE - see /usr/share/doc/libatasmart-devel-VERSION/ for blobs shipped with libatasmart. This is a debugging feature used to check that applications act correctly when a disk is failing. monitor Monitors the daemon for events. dump Prints the current state of the daemon. help Prints help and exit. COMMON OPTIONS
The option --no-user-interaction can be used to request that no interaction (such as the user being presented with an authentication dialog) must occur when checking with polkit(8) whether the caller is authorized to perform the requested action. AUDIENCE
This program does not assume that the caller is the super user - it is intended to be used by unprivileged users and authorizations are checked by the udisks daemon using polkit(8). Additionally, this program is not intended to be used by scripts or other programs - options/commands may change in incompatible ways in the future even in maintenance releases. See the "API STABILITY" section of udisks(8) for more information. BASH COMPLETION
udisksctl ships with a bash completion script to complete commands, objects, block devices and some options. AUTHOR
