       /etc/X11/xfm/xfm_dev - xfm device configuration


       When  starting xfm(1) - the X file and application manager - reads this
       file to determine mount and umount commands for specific directories.


       One entry per line.  Lines starting with a hash (#) and empty lines are
       ignored.   Each line consists out of three or four fields, separated by
       colons (:).  Backslashes and colons within  those  fields  have  to  be
       escaped using backslashes.


       The first field describes which directory this entry is about.  If this
       this directory or and child directory of this is opened, while no other
       one  is  open,  the  mount command is executed. If the last file window
       showing this directory or a  child  thereof,  the  unmount  command  is

       This  field can also be the special string GETFSENT, which is described
       in a special paragraph below.

   mount command
       The second field is the command to execute for mounting.  It  is  given
       the shell as one argument after a -c.

   unmount command
       The  third field is the command to execute for unmounting.  It is given
       the shell as one argument after a -c.

       The fourth field is optional.  It is only used to specify an  icon  for
       the   0No  icon  field  is  equivalent  to  an  icon  field  containing
       dev_disk.xpm, which differs from an empty icon field.  (See xfm(5)).

automatic configuration via GETFSENT

       If the first field of an entry is the special string GETFSENT, and  the
       systen xfm was compiled on had a fstab.h file, the getfsent(3) function
       is used to get mount point information.

       Every mount point which contains a mount  option  starting  with  user.
       (like  user,  or  users)  for which no specification does yet exists is
       added to the list.

   mount and unmount command
       These commands are expanded with a space and the directory in  question
       and the result is handled a in the normal case.  This needs some fixing
       with directories containing spaces.

   icon field
       The icon field can in this case be appended by an arbitrary  number  of
       rules of the form
       If the filesystem has type fstype, the icon iconname is used instead.


       /media/cdrom:mount /media/cdrom:umount /media/cdrom:cdrom.xpm
       /floppy:mount /floppy:umount /floppy


              Unless otherwise specified in the X resources, this is the first
              location xfm looks for this file.

              Unless otherwise specified in the  X  resources,  this  file  is
              tried when the previous could not be read.

              This is the file getfsent most likely gets its information from.


       xfm(1), mount(8), getfsent(3).
