Start BIT when plugging ext HDD, udev rule

Asked by Jonas Meyer on 2018-04-12

To set up BIT for backing up to a Luks encrypted external HDD when the drive is plugged, I had to modify the udev rule.

I had to replace

ACTION=="add"

to

ACTION=="change"

in order to get BIT to start backup automatically once the disk is plugged. udev fires a 'change' event once the disk is decrypted and ready for writing, not 'add'.

BIT 1.1.24 on Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS

Should I open a new bug report or is this behavior intentional?

I suggest you report a bug. If it is intentional then the devs will tell you.

Can you help with this problem?
