External media indicator applet

I’m a new MATE user – just migrated from another distro. I’m trying to add an indicator applet for external media (safely remove etc.) to the panel. But I can’t find any. I’ve searched and searched, but couldn’t find any up-to-date applet? Is something out there?

Thank you very much for your help!

The Disk Mounter applet is the closest thing I’ve found so far.


Thanks for the quick answer!

I installed the gnome-applets package, which disk mounter is part of. Unfortunately, I’m not able to pick disk mounter in the ‘add to panel’-Menu. Is there another way of getting this applet to the panel?

The right one would most likely be part of mate-applets, not gnome-applets.

Oh, right! Unfortunately that package was already installed. It seems that disk mounter is not part of it.

After some digging, I found out that ‘drivemount’ on the other hand, is part of the package (https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-applets). But I can’t figure out how to add it – it’s not in my list.

Oh snap! So sorry, I just found it. (My system is in german localization and I was blind and overlooked the Icon for about 10 times or so!) Really sorry!
