Ubuntu :: Auto Mount Ntfs Drives?

Jul 30, 2011

I use Ubuntu 11.04 (gnome) and have a ntfs partiton that shows up in the "places" menu that is normally in the gnome panel. But I think that partition isn't mounted till I click on the entry in this menu (when I want to access it from any other place, shortcuts for example, that doesn't work).
How can I correctly mount all partitions I want on startup?
Recently I tried something in the /etc/fstab file but don't know if this is correct...

Ubuntu :: Configure Auto Mount For NTFS Drives?

May 16, 2011

I have a dual boot setup with a fair amount of files in my windows volume. I noticed that the Ubuntu 10.4 GNOME version (at least) does not auto mount my NTFS drive. Of course as I have seen from various post this gets annoying when opening up a program that loads previous files before I for ex, click the '110GB FileSystem' icon from Nautilus or similar...that seems to mount it for me then... I want my 110GB NTFS volume to mount automatically so I dont have to do this process everytime I reboot.

I found a post on the forum (the latest one I could find) below that recommends installing ntfs-config. The post is from May 2008 but mentions 10.10 (via edits) so I'm confused and wondering if there is an easier/default way..or this is still the way to go? After several screw ups editing system files manually, Im very cautious about doing it in this case because its a work computer and frankly the uninsttall or editing the fstab manually worries me.

Ubuntu :: How Can I Auto-mount Drives On Startup

Dec 28, 2010

I've been trying to unsuccessfully auto-mount my drives when starting up. I've made a script that sets me to the root using "sudo -s" and then mounts the drives. The commands to mount the drives work properly when entered into the command line, but when I try running them from an executable, they don't work. What might I be missing?

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount Options For External NTFS?

Jan 31, 2010

Have a 1TB external USB hard drive I want to use on both Windows and Linux (Mythbuntu 9.10), so I thought the easiest way would be to format it with NTFS. Installed the NTFS-3G package and I'm able to read and write to the drive fine from Linux, however I have a few questions;

1) How do I configure Linux so that when it mounts the NTFS partition it is writeable for user, group and other (bascially I want everyone to have read and write access)? Currently when the NTFS disk is mounted the permissions are restricted to the user only and I suspect I'll need to edit fstab for this, but don't have much experience here so need help with the specifics.

2) If my Linux PC is turned on with the external drive attached, the disk is not mounted until I double click on the icon on the desktop. Is there anyway I can configure Linux so that it will automatically mount the external disk when booting?

Below is what is in my fstab file at present;

Quote:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# -- This file has been automaticly generated by ntfs-config --
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount NTFS (windows) Partition?

Nov 7, 2010

I have a windows partition on my drive, and I want to access it without having to mount it first, etc. There are just two partitions, windows and Ubuntu. I am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 so I want to mount it on startup. I saw this article: [URL] but I don't know if what it describes will work as it's almost 2 years old. I'm not adverse to commands, in fact would probably prefer those.

Fedora :: Auto Mount NTFS Partition 12?

Currently I have a dual boot system it consists of Fedora 12 and Windows Vista, at this time when I am logged into fedora 12 I can select the windows vista partition in the f12 file manager, I am than prompted for the root password and after entering the password, the drive mounts as read/write with no problem. How can I automate this mounting process so once I login as a standard user the NTFS partition mounts without any input? I would like this to auto mount without prompting for a password or having to double click on the vista partition each time.

OpenSUSE :: After Upgrading To 11.4 No Drives Will Auto-mount

Mar 13, 2011

I was using 11.3, everything worked fine Upgraded to 11.4, now no drives will automount. As a result applications like Nero and K3B cannot find my DVD drive. I can access the drives from an application like VLC where I can enter the device path /dev/dvd

Dmesg and tail -f /var/log/messages output the following error:

I suspect there is a bug or incompatablitiy with HAL/dbus/udisks but I cannot track it down.

General :: Auto-mount USB Drives Read-only

Oct 6, 2010

I'm currently setting up a laptop for my grandparents to use. They have never used a computer before, so I'm trying to make this as fool-proof as possible. The system will be setup with Ubuntu 10.10. In order to save them the hassle of having to unmount USB drives before disconnecting them, I would like to have all USB drives auto-mounted as read-only (possible use cases for now only include them getting data from people, not them copying anything to the drive). I have so far found that gnome-volume-manager is responsible for the handy auto-mount, but I didn't find any way to set options, like always mounting drives read-only.

Server :: Auto Mount External Hdd-drives?

Mar 17, 2010

I have a problem that i have tried to solve for a couple of days.server with some internal disks. Those disks are for the core-system and some file server related stuff.Beside the server i got two external LaCie boxes that contains 4x1tb disks each. The disks inside the boxes are RAID5, so the system sees every box as one whole "disk".Now to the problem. I just can�t get those "two" RAID cofigurations two be auto mounted at boot. I have tried to put them in /etc/fstab with a whole bunch of different options but nothing works. The system sees them but don't auto mount them, and i can manually mount them without any problem at all. I have tried to "google" the problem but can't find any similar

Ubuntu :: Computer Wouldn't Mount NTFS Drives Anymore

Jul 27, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS x64 on my computer. This also the first time I'm working with a linux distribution, so I'm sorry if I don't understand everything.Yesterday Ubuntu was running perfectly. Today I tried to install nvidia driver, and after that I started rythmbox. That was the moment I noticed my computer wouldn't mount NTFS drives anymore. What is weird cause yesterday it did mount them, and I didn't change anything (atleast I think I don't). The exact error Message is:Unable to mount location

So I searched the internet and they said to other people they should check System>Administration>Users and groups.So I did check it and it said account type: custom, when I clicked on the button change, which was next to it, It didn't do a thing.

Ubuntu :: Easilly Mount Drives (including Ntfs Ones) Via Gui Without Password Prompt?

Jun 5, 2010

I have recently tried to switch from windows to kubuntu. So far nobody can help me on the problem that kubuntu keeps asking password (kdesudo - please input your password to mount this device) in order to mount anything with ntfs on it. This is despite i have made needed changes in order for this operation to be possible without rootilleges (recompiled ntfs-3g with internal fuse, set the setuid bit/setguid bit,ded user to disks, gave user permissions to mountpoint). I can do mount /dev/... and it works without sudo but the dolphin, or "removable media" thingie in system settings still will ask a password to mount anything with ntfs on it.

So, therefore a question arises. I can of course do all the mounting manually (automount on boot does not help since my external hard takes time to "boot up" when it's first accessed and that is when system boot takes 10 seconds instead of 1 second and starts complaining about "drive not ready, try manual mounting"So, i would like to have a simple gui something that can mount or dismount (run mount and umount for me effectively) removable or internal disks. Could someone advise some program that he uses? suppose there are plenty such around since the operation is very common...Maybe even a file managertead of dolphin)? Preferably one that does renaming li

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

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.

Debian :: Flash Drives Auto Mount To Wrong Filesystem

Jun 10, 2011

Sometimes when I plug in a USB flash drive, it is mounted to /dev/usb0 instead of /dev/drivename. This poses a problem for me because I have applications that depend on files I keep on flash drives, and having to frequently change the file paths is difficult. I haven't been able to find anything on this topic with a cursory search on Google or through the Debian reference. Heck, I don't even know what /dev/usb0 is (though I would like to learn, in the interest of being less of a noob). This is happening on a Squeeze system running Gnome, so I believe nautilus is what's responsible for auto-mounting my flash drives.

Beyond that, I don't know what other information I should provide; if you need to know something else, ask me (and perhaps tell me how to access that information). Someone on IRC suggested that I didn't have my drives set to mount in /dev/, but I have no idea how I would go about fixing that. If there's a configuration file that deals with this sort of thing, chances are I haven't touched it since installing this system. Debian installer sees usb drive as cd drive, so it adds it in fstab, but with wrong file system options (udf,iso9660) which is not the one your flash drive uses.

Ubuntu :: Mount.ntfs And Mount.ntfs-3g Reside Simultaneously?

Whilst accessing an external NTFS drive mount.ntfs takes up a lot of CPU. I am not sure if its mounting the drive using mount.ntfs or mount.ntfs-3g? How do I find out and if they coexist how do I make the default mount drive ntfs-3g?

General :: Setup Fstab To Automatically Mount NTFS Partitions - GUI To Set The Mount Permissions?

I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.

1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?

2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?

Server :: Auto Mount USB Drive To Specified Mount Point After Reboot

Jul 19, 2010

I have servers installed with RHEL 4 2.6.9-89.0.9 ELsmp. I tried using uuid and label in /etc/fstab to automount usb drives to mountpoints that I specify after reboot. Unfortunately, it just does not work in all my RHEL4 servers. After every reboot, /etc/fstab will be automatically modified and all configurations related to my USB drives will be changed. Irregardless of whether i use UUID or LABEL in my /etc/fstab.However, it works on RHEL5. But, upgrading is not an option in my environment. I have been googling around looking for alternatives but everything seems to point back to using UUID or LABEL in /etc/fstab. Anyone has tried something that works? Please help me, thank you.
