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.

General :: Unable To Automount Ext3 Formated Usb Disk

Jun 14, 2010

I have a NAS from WD that runs some stripped down flavor of linux. The NAS has one USB port at the back which can be used to expand the storage. If I plug in an external disk formated in either NTFS or HFS+ then the system automatically mounts the disk and shares it over samba. If I plug in a disk that is formated in ext3, the disk is recognized but that's about it. It doesn't mount or get shared or anything. I have tried asking WD about this and I have tried asking google. But after two days of searching I am turning here for some more expert advice.

Here is what I've managed to figure out so far.

If I check dmesg before and after plugging in the ext3 usb disk I have found out that these lines are added to the log:

Code:

I have tried googleing those last two lines but I haven't found any info that I can make any sense of.

If I run the command "mount -a" I get the following messages from the shell: "mount: Cannot read /etc/fstab: No such file or directory"

Hover I am able to mount the ext3 disk manually. First I get this info from fdisk

Code:

And then I run these two commands:

Code:

This makes the usb disk visible in the shell, but since this is a NAS, it is kinda useless as long as it doesn't show up in samba.

Since I'm pretty new to linux I don't know what to try next so I'm hoping for some advice as to what I can do to make the ext3 usb disk automount.

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 :: 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 :: Automount USB Flash Drive -noatime ?

Oct 17, 2009

After searching the boards, I dug through the udev man pages and rule files looking for a way to modify the default automount options for USB flash drives. Apparently, the options are somewhere else. Is there a simple way to add noatime to the default mount options?

Currently, the flash drive is automounted as follows:

I'm using Fedora 12, beta RC 2 in case that makes a difference.

Fedora :: Fstab Ext3 F11 - Automatically Mount The Drive In File Tree At The Location /mnt/TheDrive?

May 15, 2010

With a 1Tb USB drive plugged in, we'll call it "TheDrive", I boot my machine and "TheDrive" is mounted automatically. The icon is on the desk-top. "TheDrive" mounts to /media/TheDrive. Everything is fine. But, I would like to automatically mount the drive in my file tree at the location /mnt/TheDrive. I would not like to have the drive automatically mounted to /media/ and appear on the desktop. I know that this requires the use of fstab; but, I do not know what to add to this file.

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.

Ubuntu :: Get The Automount For CD/DVD Drive Back?

Aug 13, 2010

how to fix this (10.04 Ubuntu x64):

A couple of weeks ago, my CD/DVD drive stopped working. I'd put in a disk, the light would flash, but it wouldn't appear as a mounted drive. Thinking the drive had finally died, I bought a new one. Same problem.

The drive is recognized by BIOS. I have it as try to mount first in BIOS, and if I put in the Ubuntu boot CD, it boots.

If I put

Code:
/dev/sr0/media/cd-dvdudf,iso9660defaults00

into /etc/fstab, and then mount -a, the drive contents appear and are accessible. However, as expected, the system chokes on boot if there isn't a CD in the drive, and I have to mount -a manually every time I start the system. Ugly.

So this is pretty clearly a software OS problem. how I can get the automount for my CD/DVD drive back?

Debian Hardware :: Not Automount A Dosfs Usb Drive?

Mar 23, 2011

I have a usb drive formatted using mkdosfs, and it must be manually mounted every time because it says "wrong fs type, bad option. bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error" but it mounts just fine when I manually mount it. It would be nice if gnome would mount it when I plug it in instead of me having to go into root and mount the drive.

Ubuntu :: How To Stop External USB Drive Automount

Jan 17, 2010

Everyone seems to what to know how to automount an external USB drive. I'm trying to stop 9.10 from automounting it. Normally I use fstab to mount an external drive where I prefer it to be mounted. But after the last software update karmic (9.10) is now automounting my drive and screwing up the fstab mount. Some how the drive is showing up as /dev/hdd1 and /dev/hde1. I could just shutoff automount but I like it for USB sticks and cameras and MP3 players. How do you stop automount from mounting just an exteral USB drive??

Ubuntu :: External USB Drive - Switch On / Off And Automount?

May 28, 2010

I'm trying to setup my media streaming server, and everytying is going quite well, but there's one thing I don't understand. Can you have ubuntu automatically pick up and mount your external USB drive when you switch it on? I don't like leaving the hard drive running, and I only need to have it on when I want to stream something, but it seems to lose the mount when I switch it off and on again. Anyway to make it automatically detect that it's on and mount it back onto my mount point?

Ubuntu :: How To Get Nautilus To Automount Ext Drive At Startup

May 29, 2010

I want nautilus to automatically mount my external drive when ubuntu 10.04 starts. This drive is encrypted, but the key has already been stored and all I have to do is click on it in my Places menu for it to mount.

It mounts to: /media/Will's Drive

I feel like I shouldn't have to edit fstab or anything like that. If I can add it to my startup programs, that would be great, I just need to know the command to get nautilus to open up /media/Will's Drive at startup.

Ubuntu :: Dd Over Usb External Drive - Damn Automount?

Aug 2, 2011

I have an external harddisk (actually removed from a laptop) and I want do some analysis and data recovery on it. I bought a sata-to-usb adapter. Now the problem is: if I deselect media_automount "media_automount_open" and I select "media_autorun_never", the external sata driver is not recognised and I have no /dev/sdb1 to manually mount. Not a hint of a newly plugged drive in dmesg.

Then I re-enabled automount and then I remounted the drives as read-only. Afterward I starter cloning the hd with dd.After some three hours, the f*ck*ng laptop remounted the partition rw and the dd process went into io error. So the question is: how can I safely work with a usb device with manual operations?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Automount Fails With External USB Drive

Feb 14, 2011

When I plug my USB drive in, the kernel sees it and I can mount it manually. However, it won't automount. I've done plenty of google searches but nothing I've tried has worked for 'GNOME, SUSE 11.3.' I am not sure if it is a permissions problem, configuration problem, a kernel automount, HID, or USB problem.

uname -a (stock SUSE desktop kernel):

OpenSUSE Install :: Get A Flash Drive To Automount When Plug In?

Oct 30, 2010

Got an old SUSE box from a friend, installed 11.3, got a few items: 1. didn't see any prompts to enter monitor info during install, control center shows as generic. Read about 'sax2' (hope that's right) but can't find it on my system or in the add-ons image. Do I need to hack monitor.conf? how? 2. installation aborted when trying to load 'textlive'.3. going into control center->mouse, the display quivers a little then I get kicked back out to the login prompt. 4. how to get kaffeine to process flv files? 5. how to get a flash drive to automount when I plug it in? I can manually mount ok. I guess that's about all for now.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Automount Ntfs Drive Without Root Permission

When I plug in the drive with this UUID, I get the following error:

Code:

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: Unprivileged user can not mount NTFS block devices using the external FUSE library. Either mount the volume as root, or rebuild NTFS-3G with integrated FUSE support and make it setuid root. Please see more information at [URL] Is there any way that I can mount this drive (which must be ntfs-formatted) without root permissions? I have googled this error and it seems that many other people are having this same problem, but I can't find a real solution. Most people suggest just reformatting the drive.
