CentOS 5 :: NTFS And Gnome Automount?

Jun 5, 2009

I have build the fuse and ntfs-3g module. Via console I can mount ntfs volumes via mount -t ntfs-3g.But under gnome I get only the messagage that the system don't support ntfs. What must I change, that the gnome volume manger (I think) use ntfs-3g to mount the volumes.

Fedora :: Way To Automount A NTFS Partition On 13 ?

Jun 15, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 13 (the KDE spin). It detects correctly my other NTFS partitions and will mount them perfectly if I click on it using Dolphin.

I would like to mount one of them automatically after booting (or logging in, doesn't matter). My first idea - and supported by a coulple of Google searches and previous threads - was to put them on on /etc/fstab.

But to my complete surprise they aren't there. Where does Dolphin (or KDE) keeps information about partitions? How to set them to automount? Also, fstab refers to my linux partitions as UUIDs not the device names - how does this work?

What should I do to set a NTFS partition to automount on Fedora 13?

Ubuntu :: Automount NTFS On Demand?

Apr 9, 2011

I have created a desktop shortcut to the folder on NTFS volume. But it doesn't work unless the volume was mounted by clicking the icon in Places->Volume_Name. One possible solution is to mount NTFS volume at boot time but that requires editing of fstab (directly or indirectly). Is there a way to mount the NTFS volume on demand when shortcut is clicked? Maybe some sort script which would emulate clicking Places->Volume_Name first and the open the shortcut?

Debian Installation :: Automount Of NTFS Partitions (Jessie Old Kernel)

May 23, 2015

I've just upgraded my system and I'm having some issues to boot with the latest kernel (cf: [URL] ....)

Hopefully I can still use the previous kernel (vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-686-pae).

I'd like to watch a movie that is on an NTFS partition.

From gnome-classic, I went in Places->datas (name of my partition) and I get this error message:

Code: Select allFailed to open "/media/mb/datas".

Error when getting information for file '/media/mb/datas': Input/output error.

The result of a df -h gives me:

Code: Select all/dev/sda3      fuseblk    96G   60G   37G  63% /media/mb/datas

mb is the username I'm currently using.

Previously it was only trying to mount the partition (after asking for the root password) in /media/datas

Is it normal that now it tries to mount it only for my current user in another folder?

If I look in the /var/log/messages, I only see this:

May 22 23:53:06 Tieum-Latitude gnome-session[2092]: Thunar: Failed to open "/media/mb/datas": Error when getting information for file '/media/mb/datas': Input/output error

Ubuntu :: Unable To Automount Ntfs Drive Without Root Permission

May 11, 2011

I have the following line in my fstab:


# external hard drive
UUID=4DDD273633F3859D /home/ross/external ntfs-3g auto,exec,user,uid=1000,gid=100,dmask=027,fmask=137,utf8 0 0

When I plug in the drive with this UUID, I get the following error:


Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: Unprivileged user can not mount NTFS block devices using the external FUSE library. Either mount the volume as root, or rebuild NTFS-3G with integrated FUSE support and make it setuid root. Please see more information at [URL] Is there any way that I can mount this drive (which must be ntfs-formatted) without root permissions? I have googled this error and it seems that many other people are having this same problem, but I can't find a real solution. Most people suggest just reformatting the drive.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Automount LUKS Encrypted NTFS USB Disk In RHEL 5.3

Dec 23, 2009

I have an external 300GB (Toshiba) disk which I encrypted (using cryptsetup luksFormat) and then installed an NTFS filesystem on (need to be able to use it in both Linux and Windows - using FreeOTFE). The disk mounts fine in windows and on my Fedora 10 system it automounts.

I can manually mount it on the RHEL5.3 system, and gnome-mount gets as far as recognising that it is encrypted and asking for the key, but it doesn't then mount it - I then have to manually mount the /dev/mapper/luks... device.

Does anyone know how to do this - if it works in Fedora 10 it ought to be possible to get it to work in EL5.3 I'd have thought.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Automount Of Ext NTFS USB Drive Fails Using Device Notifier

May 3, 2011

Automount of external NTFS USB drive fails when using the Device Notifier. The automount facility failed after the last kernel update. A bug report was kindly filed by @saverios. The details are in the quote at the end of this notice. Pending resolution of the bug, we recommend that you install the following workaround: Open the file /etc/filesystems and add an entry for "ntfs" so the file looks similar to this (see last entry):

Fedora :: Gnome's Automount And Getting A Path?

May 2, 2010

I enjoy the way Gnome automounts devices, such as cameras, thumb drives, and my iphone but it doesn't seem to mount the device in a conventional way that can be accessed by a path in a command prompt.Automounted devices can be configured to Do 'X' every time it is connected (you knew that) which includes specifying a command. I want to rsync the contents of the picture folder every time I drop it in the cradle, but retain the automount that gnome uses.The path used in Nautilus is : gphoto2://[usb:001,008]/DCIM/100APPLEBut that doesn't seem to be useful to me, at least as far as I can see.

Debian Multimedia :: No Automount In GNOME Flashback?

Aug 17, 2015

I'm running Debian 8.1 Jessie on a Dell Latitude D400 using the GNOME Flashback DE. I cannot for the life of me figure out why it doesn't automout my USB drives and CD/DVDs.The regular GNOME and GNOME Classic will automount no problem but Flashback will not. It shows up in Nautilus but I have to mount it manually through Nautilus. I checked in dconf Editor under org/gnome/desktop/media-handling and automount IS checked. So I can't figure out why its not automounting.

Is there a way to fix that so Flashback will automount my CD/DVDs and USB drives or is it just a bug in Flashback that I gotta wait to get fixed?I've already searched the forum and Google to no avail but its possible I didn't use the right searh terms in Google.

Fedora :: USB Automount On GNOME - Ext3 Drive

Nov 26, 2009

I have two USB drives, one with ext3, and the other w/vfat. On my new Fedora 12 installation, GNOME properly automounts the vfat drive on insertion. However, it applies a wrong command to mount the ext3 one. The end result is that the ext3 drive appears in /etc/mtab but, unlike vfat, is inaccessible to non-power user.

The mtab is: /dev/sdb1 /media/918fb656-8efc-43b5-bdfd-0bd8004deeba ext3 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media/49C6-1901 vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=500,gid=500,sho rtname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,flush 0 0

Somehow GNOME misses the uid=500,gid=500,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1, flush portion of the mount command when mounting the ext3 drive.

Hardware :: CD/DVD/Flash Automount Like In Gnome By Default

Apr 1, 2011

I know there are gigatons of information in the Internet about Flash automounting in Linux, but I can't find the right one. So I've been a Gnome-user for about a year now and got used to its automount system - I connect the Flash-drive and Gnome mounts it automatically to /media with its label (which is important). The same with CDs/DVDs so I always was getting something like:

Now I'm switching to Fluxbox and can't configure exactly the same automounting system.

CentOS 5 :: Data DVD Will Not Automount

Jan 21, 2011

The DVD was created with Nero Express on a Windows XP SP3 system and reads perfectly well there.On CentOS 5.3 (at least) it will not automaount. I can mount and dismount the DVD manually. I can access the DVD with K3b.CDs mount just fine and come up as an Icon on the Gnome desktop. This is what I would like to happen for the DVD as well. The CD mounts at /media, which puzzles me. I read through a great deal on the web, but have found nothing that addresses the specfic probem. I know the Gnome Volume Manager and HAL are gone. I tried changing the autofs settings by adding the following line to the /etc/auto.misc file

dvd-fstype=auto,nosuid,nodev :/dev/dvdrw

to join the line for the CD, and then rebooting, but without success.

Hardware :: Centos 5.4 IMAC Firewire Automount

Oct 19, 2010

I have an IMAC (I7) that is running CENTOS 5.4 on and need to be able to mount a fireire disk automatically when plugged in. We can do this manually running: fdisk -l then choosing the correct disk and mounting it
mount /dev/scd1 mnt The problem we have is that this machine needs to go in a client office on the other side of the world and we need it to be idiot proof. I need to be able to autodetect and mount the disk like you would if it was running OSX. Obviously the hardware works, just the automount or autodetect does not work.

We've already commented out the blacklist in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-firewire Is there some other setting I need to automount the disk. Alternatively I'll have to write an application to perform the fdisk and mount as root, which I don't particularly want to do.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Software / Process Used For Automount Of DVD?

Feb 12, 2011

I'm running CentOS-plus V5.5.CDs automount fine, but DVDs don't. I can, however, mount DVDs manually.I have scoured the web without seeing a solution. Its also clear that the software or process used by the OS to automount a DVD, has changed in the last few CentOS versions. So now I would like to ask:,In V5.5, what is the current process or software used by the OS for automatically mounting media such as a CD or DVD?What configuration files are involved that allow a CD to be mounted, and what entry(ies) would be needed to automount a DVD?

CentOS 5 :: Automount Cifs Filesystem Using The Fstab File

Aug 3, 2010

I have been running a server for 3-4 years now, and my shares have been mounting just fine. Well, the network admin looked at a backup and seen that the last date backed up was june. I got to looking around and seen that the share is not mounting. I can mount it with sudo mount -a, which tells me my syntax is correct. I get an error about IPv4 socket not opened and it is aborting the operation when I run dmesg | tail, since I can use the above command to mount later, it sounds to me like it is trying to mount before the network connection is ready.

I have done some looking over some init scripts and found that in the /etc/rc.d/init.r/netfs script it has a line that states that it is checking to see if the network is up before it starts to mount the filesystems and the such. This is set to no, my question is, can I change this option to yes and get my desired results, waiting for the network to be up before it mounts the filesystems.

OpenSUSE Install :: Mount NTFS Partitions In GNOME?

Mar 15, 2011

I Just Recently Installed OpenSUSE with GNOME Desktop and was surprised to know that none of my NTFS Partiitions were mounted to the Linux File System. Earlier I had Installed Open SUSE with KDE Desktop and there were no problems, everything was readily mounted and i could access the NTFS Partitions. I am a Total Newbie To Linux. Give Me The Syntax To Mount The NTFS Partitions in Following Partition Table Acquired with fdisk :

Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

General :: Make GNOME Desktop Auto Recognize The NTFS Partition Of The USB Drive

Jan 27, 2010

How to make my GNOME desktop auto recognize the NTFS partition of the USB drive.

On command line I can do the following perfectly:


which results


All files permission on the drive is 777. I can read, I can write, do whatever I want.

But in GNOME Desktop environment, when the USB drive is plugged-in, the partition is auto-mounted with other options:


All files permission on the drive is now 555. I can't write to it anymore. I saw a post earlier having similar mount result, but this one is USB drive though.

So how to configure GDE mount automatically with my intended mount options?

CentOS 5 :: 5.2 (native) - Gnome Dektop Munged Slightly Due To Attempted Gnome Upgrade

Mar 11, 2009

Against all advice in Centos docs, I built and installed several gnome packages in order to upgrade to the latest Gnumeric. Among them were: fontconfig, pango, gtk+, cairo, glib. goffice, pixman, tiff, and atk. Afterwards, I got missing fonts with some apps, but the biggest problem is interference with my Vmware Workstation GUIs. Yesterday I removed all the libraries I installed hoping to recover. Now things are better, but when I open a terminal on the desktop it opens jammed in the upper-left corner with the top grab bar out of reach of the mouse. Before I remove the ~/.gnome* directories, how to restore things?

CentOS 5 :: Xen Can See But Wont Mount NTFS USB Harddrive?

Jan 29, 2010

I've been trying to mount an NTFS USB hardrive inside a Xen DomU, but I keep receiving a permission denied error.I am using CentOS release 5.4 (Final) x86_64 for both Dom0 and DomU with latest updates

DomU # mount /mnt/iomega
ntfs-3g-mount: mount failed: Permission denied

Steps taken to reach the error:

1. I installed fuse and fuse-ntfs-3g in the Dom0 and successfully mounted the USD drive to make sure it worked. Then I unmounted it and block attached it to the DomU.

Dom0 # xm block-attach DomU phy:/dev/sdd xvdc r

2. I installed fuse and fuse-ntfs-3g in the DomU.I turned off SELinux (Though I don't think this is an issue)

DomU # /usr/sbin/getenforce

3. checked for the USB drive with fdisk and found it /dev/xvdc1

DomU # /sbin/fdisk -l
Disk /dev/xvda: 10.4 GB, 10485760000 bytes[code]...........
