How can I tell my Ubuntu installation to execute some scripts when I connect a specific hardware?
For example: I have an external eSATA disk. When this (and only this) disk is plugged in, my notebook should execute the backup.sh script.
Additionally it would be nice if I get informed about those automatic executions. The most beautiful thing would be an indicator in my gnome panel. But a terminal that pops up and shows the output of the script would also be ok.
