View Full Version : How do I turn on the file system nearly full warning?
30th June 2010, 11:45 PM
I had a USB stick that was nearly full, and when I plugged it in I kept getting a warning. I clicked on the ignore button to stop the message. Now that I've freed up some space on it, I'd like to turn the warning back on. But I can't find any way to do it. Does anybody out there have a clue how to do it?

If you are using KDE4, there is a program KwikDisk, which offers an option for warning when disk gets critical full. May be it is this, what you are looking for?

The old service for doing it was called partmon but doesn't appear to exist any more.
Seems strange that it was just dropped with no alternative used instead.

The sad thing is, I remember seeing a dialog with check boxes to enable it once after I updated to rawhide. But, for the life of me, I can't remember where I saw it. I've tried every palimpsest, baobab, gconf, and anything else that seemed remotely connected. I'm sure it's just a click away... :confused:
