The udisks daemon serves as an interface to system block devices,
implemented via D-Bus. It handles operations such as querying, mounting,
unmounting, formatting, or detaching storage devices such as hard disks
or USB thumb drives.

udisks2 (2.1.7-1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/reread_parttable.patch: Reread partition table before
wiping new partitions we just created. This helps ensure we got the device
nodes we need from udev (and thus avoids gnome-disks crashing so much, for
instance, when creating partitions). (LP: #1460602)
2016-03-01 - Martin Pitt <>
udisks2 (2.1.7-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
- Drop git_Fix-udiskctl-help-for-glib-2.45.patch, included upstream.
* debian/libudisks2-0.symbols: Add new symbols for this release.
* udisks2-inhibit: Stop fiddling with polkit rules; restarting it can break
existing clients/pending requests, and we can't use inotify as we don't
want to write anything on the actual file system and bind mounts don't
trigger inotify. Use a different approach of a temporary udev rule which
sets UDISKS_IGNORE on all block devices. This continues to avoid touching
the file system but does not need any daemon restarts, works with polkit
>= 106, and now also suppresses showing new block devices on the desktop.
(LP: #1508075)
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.7 (no changes necessary).
* debian/tests/upstream-system: Try to purge ntfs-3g, as the NTFS test still
hangs the kernel often (see 2.1.5-1).
* Add missing "make" test dependency.
2015-07-28 - Martin Pitt <>
udisks2 (2.1.6-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix udisksctl help crash with glib 2.45. (LP: #1478369)
2015-06-30 - Martin Pitt <>
udisks2 (2.1.6-1) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Martin Pitt ]
* New upstream release.
- Drop Decide-whether-devices-are-on-the-same-seat-by-uid-n.patch,
included upstream.
* debian/rules: Configure with explicit --libexecdir, as that's where the
daemon gets installed now.
[ Simon McVittie ]
* Disable Automake "silent rules" for more useful buildd logs
2015-04-27 - Martin Pitt <>
udisks2 (2.1.5-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/control: Drop obsolete XS-Testsuite: field, dpkg adds this
automatically now.
2015-03-31 - Simon McVittie <>
udisks2 (2.1.5-2) experimental; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Treat devices as "on the same seat" if the requesting uid owns
the active login session on the device's seat. This means that shared
services run by the user's `systemd --user`, such as the dbus-daemon
run by dbus-user-session and the D-Bus or systemd services that
it starts, can manipulate the user's devices even though those are
not associated with any particular login session or seat.
(Closes: #780004)

udisks2 (2.1.5-1) experimental; urgency=medium
[ Martin Pitt ]
* New upstream release:
- Drop default [df]mask for VFAT and NTFS (LP: #453605)
* Drop our patches, included upstream.
* debian/rules: Configure with --enable-fhs-media, to continue mounting in
/media instead of /run/media. (Previously done by a Debian patch)
* debian/tests/upstream-system: Drop ntfs-3g test dependency; due to a bug
in the BLKRRPART ioctl this causes eternal udev and thus mount hangs.
(see LP #1398859)
* udisks2-inhibit: Don't use mount --move, as it doesn't work under shared
mounts (i. e. under systemd). (LP: #1410851)
[ Michael Biebl ]
* Update Vcs-Browser URL to use cgit and https.
2014-12-18 - Martin Pitt <>
udisks2 (2.1.4-1) experimental; urgency=medium
* New upstream bug fix release.
- Avoids waking up disks from standby through SMART updates.
(LP: #1281588)
- Drop 00git_test_fixes.patch and libsystemd.patch, included upstream.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes necessary).
* Add missing python3-dbus autopkgtest dependency.
* integration-test: Skip double mount check for NTFS. Patch cherry-picked
from upstream git.
