Fedora :: Gnome's Automount And Getting A Path?

May 2, 2010

I enjoy the way Gnome automounts devices, such as cameras, thumb drives, and my iphone but it doesn't seem to mount the device in a conventional way that can be accessed by a path in a command prompt.Automounted devices can be configured to Do 'X' every time it is connected (you knew that) which includes specifying a command. I want to rsync the contents of the picture folder every time I drop it in the cradle, but retain the automount that gnome uses.The path used in Nautilus is : gphoto2://[usb:001,008]/DCIM/100APPLEBut that doesn't seem to be useful to me, at least as far as I can see.

Fedora :: USB Automount On GNOME - Ext3 Drive

Nov 26, 2009

I have two USB drives, one with ext3, and the other w/vfat. On my new Fedora 12 installation, GNOME properly automounts the vfat drive on insertion. However, it applies a wrong command to mount the ext3 one. The end result is that the ext3 drive appears in /etc/mtab but, unlike vfat, is inaccessible to non-power user.

The mtab is: /dev/sdb1 /media/918fb656-8efc-43b5-bdfd-0bd8004deeba ext3 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media/49C6-1901 vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=500,gid=500,sho rtname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,flush 0 0

Somehow GNOME misses the uid=500,gid=500,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1, flush portion of the mount command when mounting the ext3 drive.

Debian Multimedia :: No Automount In GNOME Flashback?

Aug 17, 2015

I'm running Debian 8.1 Jessie on a Dell Latitude D400 using the GNOME Flashback DE. I cannot for the life of me figure out why it doesn't automout my USB drives and CD/DVDs.The regular GNOME and GNOME Classic will automount no problem but Flashback will not. It shows up in Nautilus but I have to mount it manually through Nautilus. I checked in dconf Editor under org/gnome/desktop/media-handling and automount IS checked. So I can't figure out why its not automounting.

Is there a way to fix that so Flashback will automount my CD/DVDs and USB drives or is it just a bug in Flashback that I gotta wait to get fixed?I've already searched the forum and Google to no avail but its possible I didn't use the right searh terms in Google.

Hardware :: CD/DVD/Flash Automount Like In Gnome By Default

Apr 1, 2011

I know there are gigatons of information in the Internet about Flash automounting in Linux, but I can't find the right one. So I've been a Gnome-user for about a year now and got used to its automount system - I connect the Flash-drive and Gnome mounts it automatically to /media with its label (which is important). The same with CDs/DVDs so I always was getting something like:

Now I'm switching to Fluxbox and can't configure exactly the same automounting system.

Fedora :: Add Path In .bashrc By Commenting Out Old Path And Adding New One - Command Source ~/bashrc

Jun 14, 2011

When I add some path in .bashrc by commenting out old path and adding new one like this:

#EXPORT HOME_PLAY=/home/gem/old_play
EXPORT HOME_PLAY=/home/gem/play

After saving above changes, I enter the command: source ~/.bashrc Now if I do echo $PATH, the path shows both the old PLAY_HOME and new PLAY_HOME. This is really bad and messes up a lot of things in my project. This problem only goes away if I logout or reboot, a rather very long process. What is happening is that the old path is added to new path element and the old path includes the old path element you want to remove.

Fedora :: 12 And VMTools - The Path "" Is Not Valid Path To The Gcc Binary

Mar 23, 2010

running Windows 7 64bit with VMware Workstation 7.01-build 227600. I have some knowledge of Linux, I have installed f12 and have updated the system as of 03/22/2010. All updates completed successfully.

1) How do I install VMTools on the f12 (after mounting the CD/DVD tool package)

2) How do I update the gcc files it says are dependencies?

Here's what I get on installation:Before you can compile modules, you need to have the following installed...

kernel headers of the running kernel

and then I am prompted for this input from the install script:

Searching for GCC...
The path "" is not valid path to the gcc binary.
Would you like to change it? [yes]

and this is where I get stuck. How do I get around this or satisfy the requirements for the install?

Fedora :: How To Automount Another Partition

Sep 4, 2010

On my computer for the last couple of years I have been running Ubuntu and Windows XP in a dual boot system. Due to some unsolvable problems in Ubuntu, I decided to try out Fedora. I created a third partition on my computer and into this partition I installed Fedora. Now when I boot my computer I can either run Fedora or Windows XP. Eventually, I plan to get rid of Ubuntu completely. But for now the Ubuntu partition is still on my hard disk; I can't boot up with Ubuntu anymore, and that's OK. I don't need to run Ubuntu, but I would like to be able to access the Ubuntu partition, since there are files there that I want to keep.

At least I want to be able to read and write to the files in Ubuntu. How can I automatically mount the Ubuntu partition so that I can work with its files from Fedora?

I'm pretty sure that to get the Ubuntu partition to mount, I need to enter some lines into the etc/fstab file. Does anyone know what I should enter into Fedora's etc/fstab file so that the Ubuntu partition will be mounted?

In my Ubuntu installation the partition is named DiskF, it is partitioned in the ext3 file system. In Fedora when I look at /media/DiskF, it is empty.

When I run [code] blkid in a terminal here is the output:

What are the commands that I need to put in /etc/fstab so that when I boot my computer in Fedora DiskF will be mounted?

Fedora Hardware :: Automount In KDE ?

Nov 12, 2010

I configured "removable devices" in system settings as follows:

checked "Enable automatic mounting of removable media"


checked "Automatically mount removable media when attached"

Now following reason you would expect when you put a CD/DVD in the CD/DVD player it would be automatically mounted in directory /media/ yes?

But no - you first HAVE to open the CD or DVD with a program (like a file manager) before the directory and its content appears in directory /media/. This is not expected and very annoying.

Why does the configuration screen not work as expected. Are all settings just being ignored or something? If so - then why are those settings there in the first place? Or did I simply done something wrong?

I just want a CD or DVD been automatically mounted when I put it in the player, so I can access it without first having to open it in a separate program.

Fedora :: Automount Fails For Mo-drive?

Mar 2, 2010

I think), and when I inserted a mo-disk in the drive, it automatically mounted and turned up as /media/disk. I then did an update (all) an now I am on core 2.6.31-12. The mo-disk will not automount any longer. Inserting a USB stick or a DVD still works fine, but I have to manually mount the mo. I have a feeling that it might be security related, but I am not sure.

lshal shows the following when I insert the disk:
10:08:38.309: storage_model_SMO_F551 property storage.removable.media_available = true
10:08:38.325: storage_model_SMO_F551 property storage.partitioning_scheme = 'mbr'

Fedora :: Way To Automount A NTFS Partition On 13 ?

Jun 15, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 13 (the KDE spin). It detects correctly my other NTFS partitions and will mount them perfectly if I click on it using Dolphin.

I would like to mount one of them automatically after booting (or logging in, doesn't matter). My first idea - and supported by a coulple of Google searches and previous threads - was to put them on on /etc/fstab.

But to my complete surprise they aren't there. Where does Dolphin (or KDE) keeps information about partitions? How to set them to automount? Also, fstab refers to my linux partitions as UUIDs not the device names - how does this work?

What should I do to set a NTFS partition to automount on Fedora 13?

General :: Forcing An Absolute Path Where A Relative Path Is Expected

Feb 21, 2011

I have a program that takes a relative path as input appends it to a some path string to get the actual path.

Now all I can input is the relative path. So if I want to go one level above my input will be ../mypath.

If I know the depth of the path used internally, I can use .. as many times to go to the root directory and then give the absolute path. But suppose I do not know the depth of the directory, can I construct a relative path string such that it considers it as a relative path. One way could be to have enough .. in the path string so that I can force an absolute path for some maximum depth of path.

Is there some path string syntax that I am not aware of but can achieve this?

Fedora Hardware :: When A Cd Is Inserted It Doesn't Automount CD Either

May 18, 2010

It seems as though k3b will only recognise my burners when the system first boots for about 5 minutes. Once time is up k3b will not see my burners.. I tried burning a disk using k3b soon as I booted and it lost the drives mid burn.

The drives are ide and I've read about the drivers for cdrdao possibly not being correct but when I check to see if cdrdao sees the drives using command line it does give me both drives. So I assume that is working properly. When a cd is inserted it doesn't automount the cd either. Am I having issues with HAL? or is k3b just that flaky? ISB thumb drives mount fine..I have checked the fstab and there is no mention of cdrom mount points. IS this normal with the newer versions? Is this possibly my issue.. I was under the impression that with HAL the mount points are for ease of use in the fstab.. (not that you could mount a blank cd anyway...)
