Consider re-enabling automounting to improve VeraCrypt UX
I just noticed that we disable automounting of media in Tails via dconf
settings (462acd60). The
automount = false setting prevents the GVfs
monitor from automatically opening an unlock dialog if an encrypted
volume is attached.
I’m confused about this, because I remember that I saw this unlock dialog multiple times in Tails, and I’m sure that was after the date of this commit (2013). In any case, I verified that in recent Tails versions (3.2 to 3.7) this dialog is not opened when an encrypted volume is attached. We should decide whether we want to enable automounting to make use of this feature and our work to add TCRYPT support to it.
