Description

The gio.VolumeMonitor is for listing the user interesting devices and volumes on the computer. In other words, what a file selector or file manager would show in a sidebar.

Methods

gio.VolumeMonitor.get_connected_drives

    def get_connected_drives()

Returns :

a list of connected gio.Drive objects.

The get_connected_drives() method gets a list of drives connected to the system.

gio.VolumeMonitor.get_mount_for_uuid

    def get_mount_for_uuid(uuid)

uuid :

The UUID to look for.

Returns :

A gio.Mount or None if no such mount is available.

The get_mount_for_uuid() method finds a gio.Mount object by it's UUID (see gio.Mount.get_uuid())

gio.VolumeMonitor.get_mounts

    def get_mounts()

Returns :

A list of gio.Mount objects.

The get_mounts() method gets a list of the mounts on the system.

gio.VolumeMonitor.get_volume_for_uuid

    def get_volume_for_uuid(uuid)

uuid :

The UUID to look for.

Returns :

A gio.Volume or None if no such volume is available.

The get_mount_for_uuid() method finds a gio.Mount object by it's UUID (see gio.Mount.get_uuid())

gio.VolumeMonitor.get_volumes

    def get_volumes()

Returns :

A list of gio.Volume objects.

The get_volumes() method gets a list of the volumes on the system.

Functions

gio.volume_monitor_adopt_orphan_mount

    def volume_monitor_adopt_orphan_mount()

Returns :

The gio.Volume object that is the parent for mount or None if no wants to adopt the gio.Mount.

Warning

This method will be deprecated starting from GIO 2.20

The volume_monitor_adopt_orphan_mount() function should be called by any gio.VolumeMonitor implementation when a new gio.Mount object is created that is not associated with a gio.Volume object. It must be called just before emitting the mount_added signal.

If the return value is not None, the caller must associate the returned gio.Volume object with the gio.Mount. This involves returning it in it's gio.Mount.get_volumes() implementation. The caller must also listen for the "removed" signal on the returned object and give up it's reference when handling that signal

Similary, if implementing gio.volume_monitor_adopt_orphan_mount(), the implementor must take a reference to mount and return it in it's gio.Volume.get_mount() implemented. Also, the implementor must listen for the "unmounted" signal on mount and give up it's reference upon handling that signal.

There are two main use cases for this function.

One is when implementing a user space file system driver that reads blocks of a block device that is already represented by the native volume monitor (for example a CD Audio file system driver). Such a driver will generate it's own gio.Mount object that needs to be assoicated with the gio.Volume object that represents the volume.

The other is for implementing a gio.VolumeMonitor whose sole purpose is to return gio.Volume objects representing entries in the users "favorite servers" list or similar.

gio.volume_monitor_get

    def volume_monitor_get()

Returns :

A reference to the gio.VolumeMonitor used by gio.

The volume_monitor_get() function gets the volume monitor used by gio.
