Udisks2 or another disk manager for Ubuntu Core

I’ve recently started playing with Ubuntu Core on a RPi 4 by trying to get a Plex Server going. No problem getting Plex Server working except that I cannot mount the local disk or a network drive on my NAS.

The documentation says that udisks2 should be available but I read somewhere that it was deprecated and it has been removed from the Snap store.

Is there another way to manage the disks and get them mounted so that I can configure Plex to actually play videos?

As per the deprecation, you can include udisks2 in your own snap to have the same functionality.

Also, this should be moved to the #snap category, as it is not really related to the store at all.


Thanks for the info but can I check that

  • really there is no alternative disk manager in the store, and
  • the only option is to install a deprecated version of udisks2 from github? Seems to go against one of the benefits of snap i.e. having a straightforward user interface. Disk management seems like a basic requirement to have.

here is an example snap that you could base on:
