A Disk Indicator for Ubuntu


Disk indicator is a small indicator for Unity, Xfce and other desktops which displays the mounted drives. It provides options to mount/unmount regular volumes, lock/unlock encrypted volumes and mount/unmount ISO files.


Ubuntu and derivatives (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc)

Packages are available in the Launchpad PPA for supported Ubuntu releases. Run the following commands in a terminal window:

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-diskman

For older Ubuntu releases which have reached end-of-life, you can install from the DEB files linked below.
indicator-diskman-latest-i386.deb (32-bit)
indicator-diskman-latest-amd64.deb (64-bit)


  1. Works great! Thanks! Posted it to OMGUbuntu!

    Only feature I would like to see added is how much of the filesystem is used (or free). A percentage would be fine like: 27% free.

  2. Looks good - Wanted to make an icon for your application.
    it uses Icon=indicator-diskman as an icon which is fine for menu, plank etc...
    But the issue is in the panel. All icons are grey and symbolic in the panel. I do not seem to be able to get a second icon in there?
    Could you add the possibility to have a indicator-diskman-panel.svg or add the possibility to change icons manually?
