NAMEgnome-disks - the GNOME Disks application
- gnome-disks [OPTIONS]
The Disks application is single-instance. What this means is that if the application is not already running when the gnome-disks command is invoked, it will get launched and the command invocation will block until the application exits. Otherwise the existing application instance will be used and the gnome-disks command will exit immediately.
The following options are understood:
- Switches to the Disks application and selects the block device given by DEVICE (for example, /dev/sda).
--block-device DEVICE --format-device [--xid WINDOW-ID]
- Shows the lqFormat Volumerq dialog for the block device given by DEVICE (for example, /dev/sdb1). If WINDOW-ID is given, makes the dialog transient to the given XID.
- Shows the lqRestore Disk Imagerq dialog for the file given by FILE (for example, /home/user/Downloads/SuperOS.iso) and prompts the user to choose a disk to restore the image unto.
- Prints a short help text and exits.
