Message "new medium has been detected" pops up

Hi there,

Currently I'm running

$ uname -srv
Linux 4.9.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.130-2 (2018-10-27)

For some time I'm noticing the popping up of a window. It keeps telling me, that a new medium (/dev/sda2) has been detected (cf attachment). I didn't (consciously) alter the system (q4os on vmware).

Why does this message window keep popping up?
Did someone else see this message as well?

Any help would be highly appreciated

Re: Message "new medium has been detected" pops up

Trinity detects this disk as plugged for some reason. We are not able to reproduce that, however you can configure TDE to disable the pop-up window for unmounted disks, run as user in terminal:
$ /opt/trinity/bin/kwriteconfig --file "medianotifierrc" --group "Auto Actions" --key "media/hdd_mounted" "#NothinAction"
$ /opt/trinity/bin/kwriteconfig --file "medianotifierrc" --group "Auto Actions" --key "media/hdd_unmounted" "#NothinAction"

Alternatively, you can find more detailed configuration options in control panel:
run Control Panel > Peripherals > Storage media > define auto-actions for various types of devices detected.
