Debian :: Mount Any External Volume In Thunar?

May 27, 2011

I am running wheezy + xfce. When I attempt to mount any external volume in Thunar, I get a message saying "Unable to mount-- not authorized." This is problem #1. A bigger problem that I think is related is my wireless. Logged in as a normal user, I cannot connect to any wireless networks using network-manager. My wireless card is functional and I can see all the networks around me, but when I click on one to connect, nothing happens. No password prompt, nothing. Strangely, when I log in as root, wireless works flawlessly. I am a member of the netdev group.

Debian Multimedia :: ESATA + Thunar: You Do Not Have Privileges To Mount <volume>

May 16, 2011

how to get thunar with xfce 4.6 to mount external hard drives. Thunar with xfce 4.8 uses udisk, and all external and internal hard disks show up in the sidebar.With thunar in debian squeeze, though, no internal or external hard drives show up.

I can live without internal hard drives showing up, but I'd like to be able to mount my eSATA drive automatically. So far I've been completely unsuccessful in getting an entry to show up in thunar (like when a usb flash disk or cd is inserted), so I've added an entry to fstab:

LABEL=LIBRARY /home/library ext4 noauto,defaults,users And that doesn't seem to do anything. With and without the fstab line, I get a popup saying something like "Unable to mount volume "LIBRARY". You do not have priviliges to mount LIBRARY."

Everything else seems to mount fine. It's just that thunar/hal/whatever thinks that my eSATA drive is an "internal" hard drive and so doesn't treat it as removable.ALL of my drives, internal and eSATA, show up in the gtk "places" menu that is used in file-roller, iceweasel, etc. If I could find a way to get thunar to do this (like it can wtih xfce 4.8 and udisks) that would be GREAT.

EDIT: I also wanted to add that they show up in pcmanfm, but it also tells me "Not authorized" when I try to mount them.

General :: Mount External USB Drive In Debian To A Mount Point Based On The Volume Name

May 5, 2011

How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.

This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).

Debian Configuration :: Can't Auto-Mount External NTFS Volume

Apr 6, 2010

I have successfully mounted my Win7 volume and my external hard drives NTFS volume as well. However, after modifying the fstab I seem to only be getting the win7 volume to auto-mount. Below is the contents of my fstab. /dev/sdf3 is not mounting. Again, it works no problem if I manually mount it.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.

Debian Multimedia :: Mount Android Mass Storage Device In Thunar

Apr 12, 2016

Since I use openbox with some packages from Xfce4 (mainly for convenience) I get most stuff "for free" as it were when using openbox, but I can't figure out how to mount android devices in a simple way. I can either do it manually, or install some other file manager that has this capability. This leads me to my question, I've noticed that if I install Nautilus, which automatically mounts android devices OotB, I get this functionality in Thunar as well. This leads me to believe that there is clearly a dependency package of some kind installed when running apt-get install nautilus that enables it, It'd be great to get this functionality in Thunar without having all the nautilus packages just littering about for no good reason. the required package is gvfs-backends, which I should have realized when I was unable to browse smb:// addresses. You forget a lot when you only make a fresh install once every 2 years or so.

I can play an audio CD in gxine or mplayer or Decibel, but I can't browse the contents with Thunar. The same drive is used for both CDs and DVDs.

Debian :: Waiting For Root - Cannot Mount Volume

Jun 23, 2010

Not sure how this came about but the box rebooted itself for some reason and refused to get past this stage. I went into grub and changed hde1 to hda1 but that did nothing. The disk is unreadable by another Debian box, it gives the error "Cannot mount volume". Also unreadable in Windows via programs such as ext2toifs or Linux Reader.

If I boot via the CD and bring up the recovery console I can browse to my data, seems all intact but cant mount a network share to move it off, also tried making a .tar of all my stuff and FTPd' it across but I only received a massive corrupted file. How to get my stuff of this drive or ideally make it boot?

Debian :: "failed To Mount 257M Volume

Software :: Thunar-volman Won't Mount Anything HAL/DBus Complaining?

May 24, 2010

I'm trying to get automounting working with Arch on my laptop, and I've installed thunar-volman. The trouble is, whenever I put in a CD or plug in a USB mass storage device (thumb drive, USB hard drive, etc.), it gives me a dialog like the following: Quote:

Failed to mount [CD/DVD/USB device here]. Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.31" (uid=1000 pid=5706 comm="exo-mount) interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume" member="Mount" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="org.freedesktop.Hal" (uid=0 pid=2186 comm="/usr/sbin/hald)).

I'm guessing this means there's some config in HAL or DBus that I need to fix, but I can't even begin to figure out what file it could be in.. I've tried searching LQ and Google to no avail. It seems that either the solution is sitting right in front of me, or hardly anyone even has this problem. I can mount the devices manually (as root), but like I said, if I put in a CD/DVD or plug in a USB storage device, or if I double-click the icon on the desktop, I get the above error. I've tried adding myself to the groups optical, disk, storage, and power, but I still get the same thing.

Debian :: Mount Permissions On External HD?

Nov 13, 2010

I have a debian machine with an external harddrive. I have a windows machine on the same network from which I can read the files from the debian drive, but I cant write to it.
At some point in time (several months ago?) I could.

currently, I have this line in my /etc/fstab: /dev/sdb1 /media/MUSIC/ vfat user,uid=1000,gid=1000,rw,umask=000 0 0

and i've tried a hundred different mount commands (but not as many as i've tried fstab lines) but generally have been using this at start up: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/MUSIC/ (i am under the impression that i should not have to use 'sudo' when doing this, since the fstab line includes 'user' but if i dont, the command fails)

no matter what I've tried, the permissions come out as owned by root: drwxr-xr-x 905 root root 163840 2010-10-17 17:45 Music attempting (as root) to change ownership of the directory also does not work: chown: changing ownership of `/media/MUSIC/': Operation not permitted (because its a FAT file system, i think)

Debian Hardware :: Auto-mount External 2.0 TB (usb 3.0)

Jan 29, 2015

I bought a new external HDD - a Seagate 2 TB (actually 1.8 TB) but am unable to mount it. The drive is USB 3.0 while the ports on my system are USB 2.0 but that is NOT the issue. I am able to see the HDD without an issue on the CLI. I am on Jessie 64-bit.

Code: Select all$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 0bc2:ab24 Seagate RSS LLC
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

[Code]....

My question is why it does not automount. Also if I should try to manually mount it, how should I go about it ?

I got the disks pre-formatted in around 500 GB (or as close to it) multiples as can be seen.

The other question is why does /dev/sdb4 show some different dialog than the rest ?

Debian Hardware :: Format And Mount An External HD?

Dec 13, 2010

Santa brought me an early Christmas present: a new External HD - Verbatim CLÖN - 250GBPlug it in and it works great. Problem is this: I do not use Windows at all just Debian Squeeze and this thing is formatted FAT32 - an ancient format.I would prefer EXT3 or maybe NTFS to be compatible with Windows "IF" there is a need (cousins etc).However as soon as I format it to NTFS or Ext3 it becomes "root" only.This is my HD, how can I format it and keep permissions for myself?

A friend suggested changing /etc/fuse.conf
# Set the maximum number of FUSE mounts allowed to non-root users.
# The default is 1000.

Debian :: Mount Multiple External Hard Drives ?

Dec 20, 2010

How to mount multiple external HDD's. I'd like to link or mount the music, torrents, and general files from several external hard drives and apply permissions (in some cases I only want the mount or link to be read only).

My setup:
- Seagate Dockstar running Debian squeeze (it's headless so I don't have a gui running)
- Two external HDD's with one partition on each (250GB and 400GB)

What I'd like to accomplish:
1. Mount the external HDD's to /media/HDDs as read/write (this is already working using udev and autofs and it's available in samba)
2. I'd like the MUSIC directories on both external HDD's to show up under the same mount point. In other words I want the MUSIC folders (from both HDD's) to appear as one large library of music. And I only want this to be readonly. It will be used as the library for mpd and/or squeezebox.
3. Mount a directory used to download torrents to. I'll probably pick on HDD as the target for torrent dowloads. But let me know if you have any other ideas regarding this.

Since I have the first one done, how would I accomplish 2 & 3?

Software :: Mount Error: Can't Mount An Encrypted Volume With An Overlaying Ext3 FS

Jun 6, 2010

I created a encrypted volume on top of software raid1. These are my steps:

1. Create logical partition on sda

2. Create logical partition on sdb (same size)

3. Change type to partition to 'fd' for both partitions

4. Check that the both partitions are same size and type
fdisk -l /dev/sda && fdisk -l /dev/sdb

5. partprobe

6. Make sure there are no remains from previous RAID installations on /dev/sdb by running:
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sda6
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdb6

7. mdadm --create /dev/md4 --level=1 --raid-disks=2 /dev/sda6 /dev/sdb6

8. watch cat /proc/mdstat

9. update mdadm.conf
mdadm --examine --scan | grep mdx >> /etc/mdadm.conf

10. Load twofish module
[root@localhost ~]# modprobe twofish

11. # cryptsetup -y -c twofish-cbc-essiv:sha256 create ftdata /dev/md4
Enter passphrase:
Verify passphrase:

12. mkfs.ext3 -b 4096 -R stride=8 /dev/mapper/ftdata

13. mkdir /ftdata

14. Mount the encrypted volume: mount -O noatime /dev/mapper/ftdata /ftdata

It mounts successfully this first time. When I cd /ftdata, I can see the lost+found dir

Now, I unmount the volume
cd ~

Code:
umount /ftdata
cryptsetup remove ftdata

And now, if I try to setup my encrypted volume like this:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# cryptsetup create ftdata /dev/md4
Enter passphrase:
mount -O noatime /dev/mapper/ftdata /ftdata
I get this error:
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

So why is it that I can't mount my encrypted volume after the first time? I am giving the correct password when it asks to.
