mount with a click
versione italiana
Wmcdrom is a dock application for WindowMaker. When launched wmcdrom creates a 48 x 48 pixel showing an icon (centered in a 64 x 64 pixel tile). To dock wmcdrom, left-click on the border of the tile and drag the tile to the dock area.

By clicking the icon you can mount,unmount,eject and launch a filemanager.

  • The first left-click will mount the media.
  • The second left-click will launch a filemanager on the mount point.
  • The first right-click will unmount the media.
  • The second right-click will eject the media (when supported).
