"udisks" is a magic word to google.

I have /etc/udev/rules.d/99-zzz-local.rules with stuff like this
in it:


That teaches it not to automount my usb drive with the partition
labeled BACKUP. I suspect there are other things besides
ID_FS_LABEL that you can look for, but that works well for
me for my backup drive (which is the last thing I want
automounted in every login session :-).
