General :: Gnome/nautilus Mounting And Unmounting Without Root?

Feb 28, 2010

Gnome version 2.28.1 with kernel 2.6.31-14 on an Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic box.I'm wondering how usb drives, etc get automounted in gnome now days. Thought it might be fusermount, but no.Gnome-mount is not installed. Perhaps it is via AL or udev, but what commands control it? I've found posts that talk about using gnome-mount, but these are outdated as this package isn't even installed by default anymore.I would like to unmount certain volumes via the command line, but without having root privileges as gnome is doing by clicking in nautilus. I would like to do the equivalent from the command line.

Are there any command lines commands that will allow me to do this (not talking about pmount which is not installed)?Also, is there a way to prevent automounting of just certain devices, but not all? I have a USB with 7 different things on it (a "built-in" CD for some reason for windoz users, the original NTFS, and 5 linux partitions). I really only want one of the linux partitions (an XFS for DVD isos) to automount but not all the others. I would like not to have to disable ALL automounting as in:
Code:

$ gconftool-2 -s /apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount --type=bool false
$ gconftool-2 -s /apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount_open --type=bool false

Fedora :: Nautilus Crashes When Unmounting?

Dec 19, 2010

- Nautilus open in browser mode (the default)?- I click the eject symbol to unmount a usb stick in the side pane.- The annoying red exclamation police light looking thing pops up telling me that nautilus crashed.- Not only is the usb stick unmounted, but the device file also disapears (e.g. no longer listed by fdisk).- This problem does NOT occur when I use other methods to unmount (e.g. umount on command line, or right-click on desktop icon and select eject action), only when I click the eject symbol in the nautilus side pane

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Crash After Unmounting USB

10.10 MMeerkat - When I use a USB-stick or external hard drive, I don't get the "unmount" option but instead it says "safely remove drive".When I click this, Nautilus immediately crashes and is gone.Is this a known bug in 10.10?

CentOS 5 :: Nautilus Does Not Stop Automounted NFS From Unmounting?

Jun 22, 2010

A client is having a problem with a recently installed CentOS 5.5 x86_64 Virtual Machine (under VMware ESX 3.5). The problem is reported by the user as "Nautilus windows closing after a time when looking at data from the NFS server".

The folders the user is using are in a file system that is NFS mounted from a Solaris 10 file server cluster (VCS). These are mounted using autofs. These are direct mounts as in:

$ grep ^/- /etc/auto.master
/- /etc/auto.direct
$ cat /etc/auto.direct
/opt/user-data fileserver:/export/org/data/something/something

I have reproduced the problem by logging in and opening a number of folders using Nautilus under /opt/user-data. After a while, all Nautilus folder windows that are under /opt/user-data will close and when this occurs you can see from the command line that autofs has unmounted the area from the file server.

This should not occur because Nautilus having a window open should count as the folder being in use and should stop autofs from unmounting it. I don't know if this is an autofs or Nautilus bug but I suspect it's a Nautilus bug in it not keeping some kind of access open on the folder. System information:

The system was updated at install time. /boot/grub/grub.conf has "divider=10" appended to the kernel line.VMware Tools are installed. NTP is also configured and steps the time to UTC at boot if required (maybe this is overkill). autofs and Nautilus versions are:

$ rpm -qa | egrep autofs|kernel|nautilus | sort
autofs-5.0.1-0.rc2.143.el5.x86_64
kernel-2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.x86_64
kernel-2.6.18-194.el5.x86_64
nautilus-2.16.2-7.el5.x86_64

I haven't changed anything on the system as far as I'm aware, and I ran some HD diagnostics and everything seems fine. however when I try to mount the drive with the following command:

sudo mount -t ext3 -o rw /dev/hda1 /mnt

I get the following error:

Ubuntu :: Moving A Partition - Unmounting Root ?

Software :: Installing Gcc On Puppy / "Failed Mounting Or Unmounting" / No Such File Or Directory?

Jan 19, 2010

I've recently installed Puppy Linux on a "second-hand" machine, and I'm trying to get gcc installed so that I can (hopefully) compile some wireless drivers for the USB adapter I'm trying to make work.

I've tried everything I can think of, including following the instructions on the Puppy website. When I click the devx_430.sfs file, it simply fails to mount ("Failed mounting or unmounting."). So I tried getting the gcc and make packages (+dependencies) from the Ubuntu repos, and install those (Puppy has an "undeb" utility). There are actually supposedly two ways of doing that: one is to click on the file in ROX-Filer, and that opens a confirmation dialog to install, so I tried that first (with all the .debs). That seemed to report a successful installation for each package (confirmation dialogs popped up to report installation success), but when I tried typing "gcc" in the terminal, it still couldn't find it ("bash: gcc: command not found").

So then I tried the second way: using "undeb" in the terminal. That again was supposedly successful (no errors), but still "bash: gcc: command not found" and "/usr/bin/gcc: No such file or directory".

So then I tried "file /usr/bin/gcc" and it gives this:

Code:
/usr/bin/gcc: broken symbolic link to 'gcc-4.3'
And of course, as expected, "find / -name "gcc-4.3" finds nothing.

Where are these files being extracted to, if at all? And I can't just use the package manager, because I don't have internet (this is how I'm trying to get internet). Am I totally screwed?

Ubuntu :: Long Disk-activity-pause On Boot - Between Mounting Root And Mounting Swap?

Jul 14, 2011

Just the last day or so, I've noticed a long pause when I boot my laptop, with lots of disk activity. dmesg says:

[Code]...

Why would there be a 15-second pause (during which the disk is slammed) between mounting root and mounting swap? During this time I see nothing but a blank purple screen, there are no cycling dots or text scroll. Is this normal and I'm just freaking out over nothing because there's no indicator of progress?

Ubuntu :: Mounting Windows Share Using Nautilus

Jul 20, 2010

In Nautilus, I can find the share under Network which I want to mount. When I double-click on the desired folder, I was prompted for a username, domain and password. However, I could not log in; there was no error messages, but Nautilus kept prompting me for my username etc..It would seem like I've entered the wrong details, but I've used a Mac OS to access the share using the same wired network and I had no problems doing so.So what could be the problem? Am I missing some setting? Or is the Windows share setting denying access to Linux systems?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Mounting Windows Share?

Aug 4, 2010

I have been looking into how to get Nautilus to emulate the windows "map network drive" feature.

I have found several howto's that use various command line utilities to try to do this, however they tend to be like trying to use a sledgehammer to fix small dents.

When I connect to a share server, Nautilus puts a directory on my desktop that only Nautilus seems to be able to see and use. I would like to be able to access this directory with non-Nautilus applications.

Ubuntu :: Mounting - Partition Not Showing In Nautilus

Jan 1, 2011

Besides having Ubuntu I also have Windows 7 and to keep data between the two I keep a separate partition. So far I have been automatically mounting this partition in /media by editing fstab. The partition shows up in Places and on Desktop. Now I have changed mount-point to be in /mnt and this works fine, the partition mounts. The problem is that it doesn't show up in Places nor on the Desktop. I have changed back the mount-point to /media and the partition shows up on the Desktop and in Places fine, but when the mount-point is changed it won't show up anymore.

General :: Dd Copy - Hard Drive Clone Fails When Mounting Root Androotblock - /newroot Failed

Oct 27, 2010

I am trying to replace an old, smaller, and dying laptop hard drive with a newer one, using a USB external drive. I first tried cloning disk to disk with Clonezilla, but it failed after cloning my root, swap, and /home directories it froze when it tried to reinstall grub. After 2x trying, I switched to dd, which I have never really used (I am fairly new to Linux in general). The actual command I used was:

Quote:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=4096 conv=notrunc,noerror

All seemed ok and after approximately 2 hours my 80GB drive had been cloned onto my new 250GB, with dd giving what appeared to be a satisfactory closure summary. I tried to mount and access the drive from my external USB enclosure but could not view it, though the data is there, I believe, as the size and bytes show... The error that Dolphin is giving me is:

Quote:

error - wrong fstype, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1 Missing codepage or helper program or other error. When I installed the new drive directly into my laptop, it begins to boot (Sabayon 5.4, 2.6.35 kernel) but almost immediately I get (handwritten down, but this is close):

Quote:

detected real_root
mounting /dev/sda1 on /newroot failed: input/output error
!! Could not mount specified ROOT, try again
!! Could not find the root block device in .

[code]....

I am assuming that my issue has something to do with grub, and maybe specific UUIDs that don't match (?) but I'm not really certain. I have both Grub Legacy 0.9x and the newer Grub 2 installed (Sabayon is already moving over) but I still boot with Legacy, not with the new 2, as I don't know how to switch, and am not sure if I should yet. I thought that dd copied bit for bit, and I added the noerror´ just to try to get it all transferred, so I don't know what went wrong exactly, though something seems wrong with grub and the bootloader, I guess...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nautilus Not Mounting Canon 450D?

Apr 9, 2011

so i'm having an issue when I'm plugging in my Canon 450D. I plug it in, the red activity light blinks and "Busy" is displayed on the LCD screen, but after about 30 seconds, it disappears, and all the while, it doesn't get mounted by Nautilus. I've checked Nautilus' media preferences, and verified this behaviour when set to "Auto mount" or "Ask me what to do". I assumed that it just meant that maybe it wasn't being detected by my laptop, but if I open Shotwell, it appears in the device pane to the left, but again, only for 30 seconds. Here's a shot of my message log:

Quote:

Apr 9 20:20:12 wegonix kernel: [ 4883.781092] usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 11
Apr 9 20:20:41 wegonix kernel: [ 4912.775528] usb 1-5: USB disconnect, address 11

As you can see, my system sees it, but no application - other than Shotwell - sees this and i guess it consequently times out. I've yet to see whether any other USB drive does this, and i'll try my iphone in a bit. This used to work about 2 weeks ago...

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Simple Click Mounting Method At Boot-time?

Feb 16, 2011

I'm trying to find a way to auto-mount a couple of NTFS volumes at login (or even earlier if possible), not by editingfstab or running the (currently buggy for Maverick) ntfs-config tool, but by simulating the way that Nautilus mounts volumes when you click or double click on one. The reasons for this are not important(just to make things a little mysterious).So, I checked the output of syslog when I click on an unmounted volume in Nautilus. It seems very useful, but I can't make much out of it. So I need your help I need to make something like a script to do this thing at startup.

Code:
Feb 16 20:52:28 UBUNTU-BCM-P5Q-DELUXE ntfs-3g[3701]: Version 2010.8.8 external FUSE 28

General :: Unmounting External USB Drives

Apr 7, 2009

Sometimes I get a problem with the basic "umount" command. I get an error message telling me that for one reason or another, the device couldn't be unmounted. Usually, it says the device is busy, when I can't see how it possibly can be. When this happens I'll use "umount -l" or "umount -f" or sometimes "eject" but I'm still not happy, because at the back of my mind I'm worried about damaging the integrity of the device's filesystem. What's the CORRECT way to deal with this problem?

I have a real newbie question. I want to edit my disk partition table. Mount some drives etc. I like gui tools and gnome's disk utility seems to be able to do everything I want to. My problem: When I want to create a new filesystem on an empty space, I'm not allowed to. I guess I need root access, but I can't login as root to my gnome session and I know no way to start the disk utility from a terminal where I'm the root user, so my question is: How do I do this?

Ubuntu :: After Running Nautilus As Root

Oct 18, 2010

In maverick, I made a menu shortcut to be able to run nautilus as root (gksu nautilus), when I need to (for example, to clean the /var/apt/archives or anything like that).When I used this in intrepid, karmic or lucid, this worked fine.In maverick, when I do so, I always afterwards have the gnome desktop of root and still the rights of root outside nautilus. I have to logoff and re-login as my user to see my personal background and gnome environment again.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus As Root Does Not Work On Laptop

Jul 20, 2010

Two screenshots are attached. On my laptop (a Toshiba Satellite A105) when I open nautilus as root the window that opens is screwed up. If I type [code] "gksudo nautilus" at a terminal prompt, screenshot-1 is what I see. Screenshot-1.png

The title bar has the word "root" instead of "root - File Browser" as it should be. There is no main toolbar, location bar, and no side bar. The next line beneath the title bar shows File, Edit, View, Places, Help instead of File, Edit, View, Go, Bookmarks, Help. If I click on View there are no checkboxes for Main Toolbar, Side Pane, Location Bar, and Status Bar. If I click on anything and then slightly move my mouse the nautilus window immediately closes. Therefore, I can't use nautilus at all to do anything.

This strange behavior only happens when I open nautilus as root. If I open nautilus normally, there are no problems. Screenshot-2 shows the window that opens if I run nautilus as root on my desktop computer. Screenshot-2.png

Debian :: Mounting Other Partition And Editing As Root?

Jan 22, 2011

I have Linux Mint (LMDE) on another partition and I guess I need to do some 'fixing' so I need to mount the partition. I can't, though, not by just clicking the partition (obviously?). I assume this is because I need root access to mount it.

how I can do this?:

1) CLI - mount via CLI by mounting at some point - for e.g., mine is /dev/sda3 so mount as ?

2) Use an 'editor' or file manager - such as Dolphin - how would I do this?

3) Use a Live CD/DVD - I think this way is unnecessary but it's a way, right?

Anything I missed? I guess gparted could mount it?

Which method would you use?

I think one could ssh into it but I'm not able to do that yet.

I need to exit the xorg.conf file which is recently really messed up.
