Hi all!

Maybe somebody has a good idea how to accomplish this with TDE stock tools:

I want to start a specific program when a USB storage device is plugged in. On 
TDE a dialog window pops up with basicly 2 options: "mount" or "do nothing".  
I'd like to intercept that dialog and filter according to the device 
type/serial number/name (what ever works) either to start the defalt TDE 
dialog or my program.

At the time of writing I am using udev to solve the problem. But obviousely I 
have problems launching TDE applitaions from that context.


Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with 
the NSA.
