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

Ubuntu :: Find Drives To Mount From Command Prompt?

Mar 18, 2010

So, I plugged in two hard drives to my server. I started with two, an IDE and an SATA. Then I plugged in another SATA and an external SATA using a PCI controller card.

I currently only have command prompt (Putty) access. How can I set the drives up to be usable. They were on another server that died.

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 :: 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 :: Mount NTFS Partitions With A Password Only?

May 4, 2010

I have U1004 dual boot with MSW7 and sometimes want to mount those NTFS partitions for mostly reading operations. Ubuntu makes it easy by a single click in Nautilus. How to change this behavior and allow mount NTFS partitions with user's password only, like sudo behavior, for example? In addition, how to mount them read-only?

Note: I mount those NTFS partitions occasionally and there is nothing in fstab about it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Format The Parts Including /Home And Retain The Win / NTFS Part?

Jul 17, 2010

Attempting install of 11.3 on previous 11.2 dual windows boot box. I want to format the Linux parts including /Home and retain the Win / NTFS part. (dual boot) Peculiar behavior of install DVD. Here is fdisk -l that clearly indicates a 500 GB HD and the Win partition, extended partition and the 3 basic Linux partitions and they seem okay in total.

Linux-mocx:/ # fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x252d252c

[Code]...

I aborted the installation. What could possibly cause the 11.2 parts and bootloader to get this wacked up ? Outside of some sound issues the 11.2 install works okay for the most part. No crashing or lockups. Really want to get up to 11.3. though. I obviously have some work to do with 35 GB of missing space on the HD and Grub living someplace on the wrong side of the river. Suggestions and a pointer or two would be most welcome guys. ( I really don't want the pain of installing that �other� OP system or I'd reformat and reinstall nice and clean.) Do I need to repartition, change mount points and reinstall Grub maybe.

Ubuntu :: No Administrator Password - VLC Install Blocked By Password Prompt

Feb 23, 2011

I am new to using Ubuntu 10.10 that was installed by a friend of mine, but he didn't give me a password for administrator and now when I try to install VLC I am blocked by a password prompt. To make things worse I can't use F1 key, esc key, tab key, 1key (I copy and paste 1 from other pages when I need it). I am at a loss here and all I want is to change the administrator password without validating the current password first.

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount With PySDM - Drive Including Audio Library Is Gone

Jul 27, 2010

I wanted to auto mount one of my drives at the startup so I installed PySDM. After that every time I login to Ubuntu every single drive is mounted with a new name, for example one of my drives was located at /media/Local Disk and now it's /media/sda6, so every link to that drive including my audio library is gone. I unchecked the 'auto-mount at startup' option in PySDM and it didn't solve anything, I even uninstall PySDM and it everything is mounted as soon as Ubuntu starts up. The funny thing is there is a 10GB recovery drive on my hard disk that was never visible in Ubuntu and I was happy with that, but now it is mounted on startup too, with the name of sda1. What should I do?

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

Feb 10, 2010

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?

Debian Installation :: Critical Bug Of "mount -t Ntfs" Cause NTFS Partition Broken

May 2, 2010

About dual boot system with winxp and lenny.

Storage information:
1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100
1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133
SATA:WD 1000
2nd primary:DVD
2nd secondary:DVDRW

Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.

info about lenny setup:
1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap
2.Every partition is XFS except swap.

At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.

Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.

But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.

After many times of trying.
I solved the problem by the following way.
1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0).
2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1)
After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0).
3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot.
windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.

The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.
