Ubuntu – How to set default options for mounted file systems


I would like all FAT volumes to be mounted with the option uni_xlate enabled.

How can I configure mount or udisks2 to use that option while mounting the volume?

It turns out is is not possible at all, as explained in another answer in unix.SE. The reason is that mount options are hardcoded in udisk2 (see FSMountOptions in udiskslinuxfilesystem.c).

A patch has been proposed to make mount options user-configurables but it has not been integrated as of April 2016.
