[arch-general] Is there a non file manager daemon for automounting like the ones provided by "pcmanfm -d"

I've been using "pcmanfm -d &" in my ~/.xinitrc, as suggested by [1].
However I would like something similar without the need of the file
manager.  Hopefully something that shows in the tray bar what's
mounted and allows umounting.

I don't use a DE, just plain fluxbox, and having to use whether
pcmanfm or thunar or any other file manager with daemon capability is
something I would like to prevent.

I read about ldm, suggested by [2], but it doesn't seem to offer what
I'm looking for.  Seems to be something to automount with particular
uid/gid only.  though I might be wrong.

Any suggestions?
