Device Mount/Unmount Notifications
Notifications, like most of SpaceFM's interface, are widely open to customization. In this example gnome-extra/zenity will be used as the notifier.
Build gnome-extra/zenity (package not on wiki - please add) with the "libnotify" USE flag.
In SpaceFM go to Devices > Settings > Auto Run and click on On Mount. This is where you enter the command you want to execute when a device is mounted. Add something like this:
zenity --notification --window-icon="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/apps/48/spacefm.png" --timeout=5 --text "%v has been mounted"
This will give you a popup notification on the top right of the screen when a device is mounted, like this:
Similar notifications can be set up for On Unmount and the other device events listed in the Auto Run menu.
