General :: Mounting Windows Drive Automatically In Ubuntu?

Mar 16, 2011

I have dual boot on my laptop. First OS is Windows XP and second is Ubuntu 10.10.

When I click on places menu in Ubuntu, I can access Windowz XP Drives.

If I access some pdf file or document while in Ubuntu which is in Windows XP Drive, then it will come in Recent Document in Places menu.

Now I restart Ubuntu and click on Recent Documents and click on the document which I accessed in last session ( before restart ).

It says Unable to Open Document.

Then I click Places again and access my Windows XP drive. Then again I click Recent Document and click on document, I am able to open the document.

My guess is this happens because my windows drives are not mounted automatically when I start Ubuntu. How can I mount Windows drive automatically when I start Ubuntu.

General :: Automatically Set Write Permissions On Mounting A Usb Drive?

Aug 15, 2010

When I mount an external usb drive on linux (CentOs4), the permissions are by default set to read-only. Since there are multiple users on the computer who need to use the external drive, I want everybody to have rw permission for the entire drive. I also want them to be able to mount the drive if the computer has accidentially been shut down. They can use sudo mount to mount the drive, but this will only give them read permission, and I obviously don't want to allow sudo chmod.

Is there a default setting that I can change so that every new external usb disk automatically gets rw permissions?

General :: Automatically Mounting Windows Share In Fedora 12?

Apr 8, 2010

I'm trying to automatically mount a windows share in a Fedora 12 instance (FC12).When I manually mount things work:mount -t cifs //nas01/servers -o username=guest,password=myPassword /mnt/nas01/serversIf I update /etc/fstab with the following://nas01/servers /mnt/nas01/servers cifs username=guest,password=myPassword 0 0Nothing happens after reboot. The thing that has me baffled is after a reboot if I run:mount -aThe share is mounted.

General :: Automatically Mounting With Wide Open Permissions A FAT Formatted USB Flash Drive?

Feb 18, 2011

I have a netbook running Ubuntu Netbook Edition and I would like a USB flash drive to be automatically mounted whenever I plug it in. The drive is FAT formatted. It mounts when I plug it in but all files are only writable by my user, other users only have read access. I understand that I need to add a corresponding entry to the /etc/fstab file. I've added the following so far:/dev/sdb1 /mnt/USB_DRIVE vfat

Firstly, is that appropriate so far? I've created /mnt/USB_DRIVE as root. Next, I'm not sure what options I should be finishing the line with, especially to get all users to be able to write to the drive.

CentOS 5 :: 250 GB USB Drive (Fat 32) Not Mounting Automatically?

May 11, 2009

I'm running:CentOS release 5.3 (Final)

when I plug in a Small USB key, hotplug sees the new device, mounts it in userspace and creates a link on the desktop. The user can open the link and read and write to the USB key. I have tested 3 different usb keys and they all work. When I plug in a USB 250 GB drive (Lacie), also fat32, it doesn't mount:

May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: SCSI device sdf: 488397168 512-byte hdwr sectors (250059 MB)
May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: sdf: Write Protect is off
May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: sdf: assuming drive cache: write through
May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: SCSI device sdf: 488397168 512-byte hdwr sectors (250059 MB

However, I can mount the drive manually as root. The problem is that the user cannot write to the device if it's mounted by root.Is this a problem with hotplug/udev or another way that I can make this device available rw to the user?

Hardware :: Mounting One USB Drive Automatically Unmounts Other

Feb 6, 2010

I just formatted my iomega 250 gb external HD to ext3. This is where i store media, such as music. What I am attempting to do is take all the music from my 5th gen 80gb ipod (rockbox firmware), and transfer it back onto my external drive, as all my data was (naturally) erased during the format. However, as soon as I plug in my ipod it mounts as usual... but after about 15-20 seconds my external drive unmounts. When i do a 'sudo mount dev/sdc1' it says sdc1 does not exist. How can i fix this? what is the problem? I have my ipod set on /dev/sdd2 and the external drive at /dev/sdc1, each with their own mount point. They each work perfectly independently. I have tried switching usb ports around and rebooting.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Automatically Mounting Windows Partitions?

May 16, 2010

Fairly new to Ubuntu (started with Karmic), now dualbooting Lucid and Windows 7. Lucid is automatically mounting my NTSC partitions, which is pretty convenient since I store all my media there, but I recently deleted one of the partitions and just extended the other one. Now Lucid is still trying to automatically mount the partition that no longer exists and giving me an error message every time I boot up. Not really a big deal, just a minor annoyance, but I'm wondering what I do to make it realize the partition is gone.

Ubuntu :: Mounting SATA Drive That Has Windows On It Under Xubuntu

I'm trying to mount my SATA drive that has Windows on it under Xubuntu, it's NTFS formatted, I tried adding it to fstab, I know the /dev points are right I checked with sudo lshw -C disk and with fdisk -l, the drive is partitioned 3 ways 1 for Win7, one for Win7's system info partition or whatever, and 1 for documents, but when I try mounting with mount -a with /dev/sda1 (which is where the windows partition should be) I get this:

Ubuntu :: Mounting NTFS Drive After Windows Failure?

Feb 1, 2011

I've been working for a while to help a friend re-activate her system after a Windows crash. I tried every way I could to restore Windows, but the system is thoroughly bollixed. The data is still there on the disk, and you can read/write if you boot off of external media. I backed up her data that way.

Details if you need them, but for now suffice it to say that I finally got her up and running by installing Xubuntu Lucid in a dual-boot setup. However Xubuntu isn't automatically recognizing and mounting the NTFS partition the way I would expect it to. I had her run a few commands in the terminal, and here's what she got.

Output from sudo fdisk -l:

Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 82.3 GB, 82348277760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 10011 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

[Code]....

Ordinarily I'd use mkdir then mount to solve this. But I'd like to check a few things before I go and do that.

First, as I understand it if a Windows instance is not shut down properly it can make it difficult for Linux to mount the partition. The usual solution is simply to reboot Windows and then shut down properly, but that's impossible in this case. Will that affect the mkdir/mount solution?

Second, the fact that /dev/sda1 doesn't even show up in fstab causes me some concern. Would that be a problem for mkdir/mount?

And third, how to I set it up so the NTFS partition mounts automatically?

General :: Dvd Drive Keep Mounting Incorrectly / Fix This?

Nov 27, 2010

Running Slackware 13.1

Whenever I insert a dvd or a cd, it automatically mounts to /media/[name], Like for example, the DVD I have in now mounts to /media/TBC3.2.0 (TBC3.2.0 is the name of the disc itself).

I'm needing this to mount to a regular point like /media/cdrom0 or whatever. How can I fix this?

General :: Mounting Drive At Startup

Oct 8, 2010

I had windows vista on one partition, xp on another documents on another and programs on another.When I installed ubuntu on a new partition it very kindly let me see all the other partitions and mount them as necessary. I would like all my ubuntu files, documents music downloads to go right on to the documents partition so when I back up that drive to an external I have it backs up the documents drive it has all the files I have created in vista or ubuntu. Eventually I want to leave windows completely but I would still want to store all the ubuntu files on the documents drive.

I can go to "places" and mount the documents drive but what I would like to do is when I fire up ubuntu that the documents drive mounts automatically.

Networking :: Mounting Permissions Error / Mounting A Windows Host?

May 28, 2009

I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:

Code:
$mount -t cifs //192.168.1.194/Admin$ /mnt/Anita-comp
password: (I have no password so I left it blank)
Mount error (13): Permission Denied
I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.

I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?

General :: Mounting The Hard Drive From Unetbootin?

Jul 29, 2010

I recently installed Damn Small Linux using unetbootin. Booting Linux from unetbootin seems a lot like booting from a liveCD, so I'd like to mount my hard drive and see what I can do. Unfortunately it looks like Damn Small Linux has not mounted it automatically, and I'm having trouble finding my drive and mounting it from the /dev directory. There are several devices named /dev/*da* and I don't know which is my hard drive. My computer is an HP Mini netbook, so the drive is probably one of the new "solid state" drives if that affects anything.What can I do to find and mount my hard drive from unetbootin?

General :: Error Mounting Usb Floppy Drive?

General :: Mounting Hard Drive In Knoppix ?

May 29, 2011

I have been running a computer under Windows XP for years, and recently it stopped booting unexpectedly. It tries to load windows, but partway though loading a BSOD flashes and it shuts down. To remedy this and hopefully fix this, my frined lent me some Knoppix CDs that I could boot from. He also lent me some external hard drives. I want to be able to access my files on my old hard drive.

Here's the problem: (in Knoppix 6) When I try to mount my main partition of my hard drive, which shows as sda2 (sda1 is an old recovery partition left over from when I ran vista), the following message pops up: "A job is pending on dev/sda2" A little later another error window pops up: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." I want to be able to mount my hard drive in Knoppix 6.

General :: Mounting A Drive That Isn't Yet Connected On The Network

Jul 16, 2011

I have an external Samba network storage drive that I mount using 'mount -t cifs -o username=aaa,password=aaa //myserver /mnt/mountlocation', but I'm finding it to be a pain to enter that whole command every time I turn on that drive and connect it to my computer via the network. I could put that command in a script and run a simple script like 'mntdrive' that would run that command for me, but is there a way to have the drive 'pre-mounted' so that if it's available on the network it's mounted?

If I put the mount command in one of the startup scripts or in fstab, would it be available at the mount location when the drive is connected if it wasn't connected when the computer was first turned on? Or is mounting the drive manually, even if by running a script that does it for me, something I'll have to do every time I turn on that drive? Any creative ways around this? Would make things easier if it is possible.

General :: Mounting External NTFS Drive With Different Driver

Feb 15, 2011

I have an Ubuntu 10.04 box that accesses NTFS drives along with ext4. Recently, I switched from ntfs-3g to Paragon NTFS driver, which is proprietary, but free of charge. It feels quite faster on my internal drives. Now I have a problem with external eSATA NTFS drive. When it is detected, I mount it via Nautilus GUI, but it gets mounted with the ntfs-3g driver. (It can be mounted via command line with the Paragon driver, but this is less convenient. How can I configure my system (is it Gnome or some system-wide configuration ?) to mount all NTFS drives with the Paragon driver?

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting Encrypted Partitions ?

Nov 24, 2010

I've created some encrypted partitions using Disk Utility, and would like them to be automatically mounted when Ubuntu starts up. Is there a guide to this anywhere?

I've gathered that it involves /etc/crypttab and possibly /etc/init.d/cryptdisks, but haven't had much success so far.

Ideally, some of the partitions would mount early in the boot process, while some of them can mount after I've logged in.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting A Network Location

Nov 26, 2010

If I can't get this sorted, I really can't use Ubuntu so pleeease help. I'm a complete newbie, as in, about 2 hours using ubuntu so far. Generally things are going well. I am trying to create a link to my windows xp workgroup where all my data is stored (I was surprised that linux could even see it!) I mounted a volume on the desktop apparently... that worked fine until I rebooted and it had disappeared. it was fairly annoying that I had to go back into the network and re-mount the volume. How can I get it to stay put, even after rebooting? I have limited to zero knowledge of linux/ubuntu so you may need to break it down for me.I tried using 'Storage Device Manager' as someone suggested but emmm I didn't understand a word of it. In fact there weren't many words. Only acronyms

[URL] I don't understand it at all...
