Ubuntu :: Change Default Mount Options For Removalbe (vfat) Devices?

Mar 4, 2010

I want to change the default mount options for removable devices, especially vfat devices, to have shortname=lower instead of the default shortname=mixed mount option. I googled around, and found references to /system/storage/default_options/vfat/mount_options gnome configuration option, but I don't seem to have this option set, actually, I don't seem to have a /system/storage tree in gconf-editor at all. searching in gconf-editor doesn't really yield any results.

General :: Change Default Boot Options For Ubuntu Desktop

Mar 12, 2011

I have recently installed Unbuntu Desktop 10.10 on a partition alongside my normal Windows 7 x64 install. I expected to have only one OS boot menu which I would be able to edit via msconfig.exe in Windows. However I have two seperate sets of boot menus.The first one contains a bunch of different Ubuntu boot options and also contains an option to boot to Windows 7 (this is last in the list).

The first boot menu defaults to Ubuntu and is on a short timeout. I want to change this to default to Windows 7 and increase the timeout.Google tells me to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and although I do have a grub folder I don't seem to have a file called menu.lst: Change default operating system at boot

Debian Hardware :: Multiple Sound Devices - How To Change The Default Device

Mar 19, 2011

I recently installed a new sound card, and I need to find out how to change the default device. Currently, I'm dual-booting Windows, and I had re-enabled the on-board audio in the PC's bios. After doing that, Debian started detecting that on-board as the default sound device. Is there a way to set my sound card to be used instead? I found out that the 'alsaconf' utility has been phased out. I"m currently running Debian testing, for amd64.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Change Mount Options (permissions) On USB Hard Drive?

Apr 19, 2010

I'm running Opensuse 11.2 and am using a couple of USB hard drives to store large data. One of these drives is formatted with FAT32 and one with NTFS. When I plug-in a USB device KDE4 shows me a little pop-up asking what I want to do with it, I select to open it in Dolphin which of course automatically mounts it.

My question is what if I want to change some of the mount options - is this possible without reverting to manual mounting? And second question is what system does it use to automount - Fedora, Debian and Ubuntu are all deprecating HAL in favour of pure udev, is this the case in Opensuse too?

General :: Change Default Mount Group Of USB Drive In Ubuntu

Aug 10, 2011

I have a shared, family computer which has USB drives attached to it. Multiple users can be logged in, that sort of thing. All of the users have been added to "Access external storage devices automatically", however I've noticed that when one user plugs in a USB device, the other users can't see it without unmounting/remounting. When a drive is mounted, it seems to mounted at:

drwx------ 5 jdoe jdoe 4096 2011-08-10 12:03 DriveName/

What I want to do is change the default mount group settings, to:

drwxrwx--- 5 jdoe family 4096 2011-08-10 12:03 DriveName/

I know I can do this through fstab, but as far as I know that forces you to name the drive/mount point and that's not what I'm looking for, what if a user adds a NEW usb device and wants it shared with the other users?

General :: Auto-mount A Vfat Partition As User?

Nov 1, 2010

I have a vfat partition under RedHat RHEL5 that I currently must mount manualy after each boot. I would like it to auto-mount but I cannot find a way to do this without it becoming ro except for root. My other partitions auto-mount just fine. I have tried the vfat as a separate partition and as a VLM logical drive (as it currently is).

The fstab statement:

"/dev/VolGroup00/LogVolDos /dos vfat noauto,users 0 0"

allows me to mount it as a user. The statement:

"/dev/VolGroup00/LogVolDos /dos vfat defaults 1 2"

is what I use for other VLM partitions, but for the vfat it seems to only allow root access. Manually mount this partition is OK, it's just that I have sometimes forgotten and then it is not included in backups. What do I need to do to make the vfat auto-mount as accessible for a user?

Ubuntu Servers :: Mount Does Not List CIFS Mount Options On 10.04.2 LTS?

Apr 4, 2011

Linux box info: root@mytestbox:~# uname -a Linux mytestbox 2.6.32-30-generic-pae #59-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 23:01:33 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

Windows box info: Windows Server 2008 SP2 Enterprise I've verified via --verbose output that mount.cifs is indeed processing the passed on options.

root@mytestbox:~# mount -t cifs // /root/testwin --verbose -o credentials=/root/testcreds,rw,nocase,noperm,noacl,nounix,noserverin o,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777


Yet, when I type mount all it reports is (rw,mand). The share works just fine, and I can see the masking (all files are showing as rwxrwxrwx as expected etc) but mount is not listing the options?!

Is this normal expected behavior? Is there a bug report on this? I've google'd to the best of my capabilities and could not locate any such information which is why I decided to hit the forums prior to filing a bug.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Will Not Start - Boot Options Not Display By Default

Oct 21, 2010

I bought a new computer and installed ubuntu 10.04 about 2 months ago, and until yesterday it worked pretty well. Last night it acted kind of weird (slow, application would start loading and then just die) so I restarted the machine. That's when I understood that something bad happened.

When the machine starts and the os begins to load I get a bunch of text that says things like:
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory.

Same for sys and proc, there might be much more in the buffer but I can't seem to able to go up. I did not do any thing special last night and so I'm clueless of the reason for this. Also, since in this version of ubuntu the boot options are not displayed by default I tried pressing a key on boot in order to try another booting option but when I do that I just get the flickering cursor sign.

Ubuntu :: USB Devices Only Mount At Startup?

Feb 21, 2011

After reformatting a usb drive with gparted, no usb stick will automount when I plug it in anymore. If the usb is in place at startup, however, it is recognized and mounted.The media will show up in fdisk and disk utility, but there is no link to it in Places > Computer. I have no trouble manually mounting, but I would rather not have to go through the hassle each time I plug in my flash stick. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64bit

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Cannot Get Any Drives / Devices To Mount

Dec 10, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 3500 laptop that I'm running 10.04 on, pretty much everything works OK, and I don't appear to have any hardware problems (I've checked using Gnome Device Manager). When I plug in a USB flash or hard drive, I don't get any drives/devices to mount, although in Gnome Device Manager the USB device appears as a USB Mass Storage Device.

Running tail -f /var/log/messages produces this:

Software :: Pulseaudio Default Devices Overidden?

Aug 28, 2010

I shall try and keep it short. Under Sys->Prefs->Sound I have selected pulseaudio server for input and output. Under Pulse-Audio manager->devices I can see the motherboard, a usb webcam, and my new soundcard. I edited the ~/.pulse source and sink files to match the new soundcard (alsa_output.pcixxxx_alsa_playback_0 and so on) under PulseAudio manager_> modiles the id numbers match the right info in the /proc/asound/cardX/pcmi0/info files

Under pulseaudio volume I set the default input and output to be the new soundcard. But in pulseaudio volume control I can see the USB webcam is still the input, and any sound still gets output to the motherboard. Is something overriding pulseaudio, or have I missed something. (The motherboard mic socket is broke, and the USB mike isn't good enough so I really need to get the soundblaster Audigy SE up and going)

OpenSUSE :: LibreOffice 3.3.1 Default Printing Options

Jun 24, 2011

Whenever I want to print from Libre Office, it's default printer options are somehow set to duplex long edge (standard) and the print quality is set to economy. I want this changed to Duplex Off and print quality set to standard. I've tried setting Libre Office's printer settings (File > Printer Settings) and when that failed, I went to File > Templates > Organize > Commands button and selected Printer Settings and changed them from there. None of these worked.

Whenever I open a document, the print quality is always set to economy and duplex is on (even when it is not needed). I have to keep changing it each time I print a document. I allow my children to use this computer for homework at times and I don't want them to have to mess with the driver settings all the time (more of a chance for something to go wrong or be set incorrectly). I've also checked the printer settings from within YaST and they are all ok.

I did try changing the settings from within the CUPS interface but when I did that, I could no longer print. The system couldn't connect to port 631 anymore and I had to go into YaST again to make it reconnect to the printer port. BTW, when I looked just now at the default printer settings within CUPS, everything seems to be set right, duplex is set to off and print quality is set to standard, which is what I want. Why does Libre Office seem to be ignoring these settings? How can I fix this (easily I hope)?

Ubuntu Installation :: USB Devices Only Mount During Boot?

May 31, 2010

After upgrading to Lucid 10.4, I find that after booting I can no-longer auto-mount any USB drive when they are plugged in. They simply doesn't appear on the desktop as they did. Swap my PATA drive back to the one with 9.10 still installed on it is well.However, if I have USB drives plugged in before boot, they appears on the desktop, but are not auto-mounted as previously. Also when I click on any drive icon for the first time there is no response. Try again (on any drive) an the devices will all auto-mount revealing their contents in the window that subsequently opens. Everything them seems fine. I can unmount and remount at my leisure with any number of devices.

I do not have the problem of root only access that others have mentioned. I have played with usbmount and pmount as others have suggested, to no avail. They have both been removed.I have the HAL installed as default, and have already ecked media_automount_open for Nautilus on the gconf-editor.Disabling the floppy in the BIOS has not effect and I do not use autologin option.With (say) two USB drives attached, whether the devices are recognised at boot or not after boot,lsusb reveals:

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

Ubuntu :: Get Devices To Auto-mount On Connection?

I have many flash drives, memory sticks, card reader, and 2 mybook 1tb so i am constanly plugging in, or unplugging devices from my machine running the latest version of ubuntu (i beleive 10.04?). I remember when i use to connect a device it would mount and work right off the bat. but now, everytime i connect anything, i have to go through Disk Utility to select the drive and mount it (also unmount before disconnect). Another problem is that some times disk utility doesnt like to work (as with a few other programs). This happends every now and then and im not sure if its my systems hardware or this version of ubuntu. every now and then programs like to stop responding (turn grey) and some programs like disk utility will open up, but just be blank and not show the detected devices

Ubuntu :: USB Devices Auto-mount As Read-only?

Ubuntu Networking :: Do NFS Mount Options Actually Work?

Jan 23, 2010

I have a bunch of nfs mounts from my MythTV backend to my netbook, both running 9.10. Due to the lousy Atheros wireless driver, it typically loses connection at least every half hour. The nfs mounts are mounted soft,intr, so programs should get an error trying to talk to a server they can't contact, and the request should be interruptable. Instead, they just lock up, can't be interrupted, and the netbook can't even shut down after the network failure because it hangs trying to clean up before shutting down.

So do these nfs options actually work in Ubuntu? 'mount' shows the nfs directory mounted with the correct options, so it doesn't seem to be any kind of configuration problem... it just doesn't do what I'm telling it to do.

Ubuntu :: Permissions Of Mount Points For Automounted Devices

Jan 14, 2010

Ubuntu 9.10. I have a problem - when I mount other partitions of my hdd or the system automounts usb disks these are mounted in /media directory with permissions 0700. So there are two problems there:
- When I switch user on my desktop to another that user can't read data from the usb disks
- I can't share data through network because smbd doesnot have read permissions on the created mount points

I think editing /etc/fstab is wrong way, there would be more right way to change permissions on mount point. I tried to change/add parameters umask, allow_other in gconf-editor (/system/storage/default_options, subsections vfat and ntfs-3g) but that does not show any results. Article [URL] recommends Open Places → Computer. Every volume except the generic File system one should have a Drive and Volume tab in its properties dialog where you can set mount options. But I did not find those tabs. Where should I set option to mount usb disks with permissions rwx for every user of my system?

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;


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