udisks2.conf - Man Page

The udisks2 configuration file


The udisks project provides additional functionality via pluggable modules. These plugins can be inserted into the daemon either by D-Bus call org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Manager.EnableModules() or by running the udisks daemon with --force-load-modules command line option.

It is also possible to configure the modules loading behavior via the configuration file placed at /etc/udisks2/udisks2.conf.

Configuration File

The default configuration file udisks2.conf looks like this:



modules = <string list>

This variable controls what modules should be loaded. It may contain either a comma-separated list of modules to load or a single asterisk which stands for all the modules.

modules_load_preference = ondemand|onstartup

This key tells udisksd when to load the plugins: either at startup or on demand by D-Bus org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Manager.EnableModules().

encryption = luks1|luks2

This variable controls which encryption technology will be used by default when creating an encrypted filesystem.




Please send bug reports to either the distribution bug tracker or the upstream bug tracker at https://github.com/storaged-project/udisks/issues.
