Ubuntu :: Auto-mount External Drive To Folder

Sep 26, 2010

The solution may to my problem may exist elsewhere, but I had trouble searching/finding it.I just bought a new external drive. The drive is formatted as ext4. I use it mainly in esata mode. Whenever I connect it, it mounts to /media/[UUID], where "[UUID]" is the UUID of the drive. I want it to be located at /media/backup when it is inserted, not in relation the UUID. I have tried putting a new line in my fstab (mount by UUID to folder) to mount the drive. It mounts correctly if the drive is connected to the computer and turned on during startup, but if the drive is off/not connected during startup Ubuntu barks at me. (I press 's' to skip mounting the drive) Is there a way to make external/removable drives mount to a certain location other than /media/[UUID] when they are inserted? I want the drive to mount to the folder while the computer is running, not only during startup.

Ubuntu :: Usb Stick Is Changing File Permissions?

Apr 8, 2011

I have two computers (one at work, one laptop) that I use daily. Both are running Ubuntu 10.04. I frequently use a usb stick to transfer files from one to the other. Somehow, every time I do this, all files get turned into executables (as if I did a chmod a+x on them...)

This happens every time I use the usb stick. I've reformatted the stick, but still this problem persists... anyone have any ideas on what is going on? It is really getting annoying to have to zip up folders so this doesn't happen...

General :: Cannot Mount USB Stick

Sep 9, 2010

i am running Ubuntu 9.10. sometimes my USB device is auto detected and shows up on my desktop other time it is not detected?? anyway i am trying to figure how to Mount it. read about the ETC/FSTAB file and i may need an entry there. following is a copy

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

[Code].....

i did try to update with an entry similar to the cdrom. my fstab is read only so no update. i have read other USB mount problems but not sure about any.

Debian :: Unable To Mount USB Stick

Jun 13, 2011

When I plug in my USB stick (with fat32 filesystem, labeled flash8p1) and then try to mount it from the Places menu, I get an error box that pops up: Unable to mount flash8p1 Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1,†missing codepage or helper program, or other error†In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail† or so

I don't understand what the dmesg is telling me, but here it is for those who may understand:

$ dmesg|tail
[14076.617192] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[14076.619599] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[14076.619620]† sdc: sdc1
[14076.623348] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through

[Code]....

I just got my Gnome-flavored Squeeze running this morning, and I'm still working out the configuration. I have disabled automounting and autobrowsing of removable media, but anyway this problem was occuring when I had automounting enabled. I have the OS installed to a 4-GB microSDHC card plugged in to the front of the computer. The computer is a Toshiba Mini NB505.

edit: And now, I just plugged the flash8p1 into a different USB port, and it mounted from the places menu. I wonder, though, if this is related to the fact that I had first mounted it from the command line.

Ubuntu :: Change Mount Directory Of Usb Stick?

Jun 12, 2010

My usb stick continually automounts at /dev/sda10, and for a certain operation I'm trying to do I need it to be mounted at /dev/sda (or sdb, sdv, etc); is there any way to change it's mount directory?

As a bonus question, or rather the real question, what I'm really trying to do is format a bootstrap partition as shown here

Code:
Command (? for help): p
/dev/sda10
# type name length base ( size ) system
/dev/sda101 Apple_partition_map Apple 63 @ 1 ( 31.5k) Partition map

Slackware :: Manually Mount A USB Stick In Console?

Nov 14, 2010

I'd like to be able to manually mount a USB stick in console (before X is started) and I can't seem to find a good way to do that. I'm not too smart about HAL and UDEV and I don't want to undo the auto mount feature when X is running but still be able to manually mount and unmount as necessary; like for installing patches and packages after an install or version upgrade. It seems like there should be an entry in /etc/fstab and a directory in /mnt or /media but danged if I can find something that points the way.

General :: Transferring Photos From Mobile To Memory Stick And Whole Folder Disappeared?

Dec 27, 2010

I'm not familiar with Linux and I do not understand technical wording at all. I was given this laptop as a favour and it is an ex-work Dell Latitude. I was given this to help me as a replacement when my Compaq working with Windows Vista stopped working. I do not understand the way Linux works much. I managed to upload photos before from my Ericsson K850i to my memory stick but this time when I tried it kept telling me that the path was invalid and such things which I did not understand. I created a folder for 2011 photos ready to go next year but the mouse pad is hard to control and even though I did nothing the 2010 folder went into the 2011. Sorry if I am not being very clear.

All I want to know is where did my whole years worth of digital photos go from my memory stick as I didn't delete anything. Would someone please help me understand all the different extensions or tell me what I need to do to try and retrieve them. I would be so grateful. I was nearly crying when it happened as when you right click in Linux there is no Undo/Redo button.

I have searched the board and I did see some other questions but I don't think they will help in this instance so I have started one. I hope I can get my photos back and also hope to hear from someone soon.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Mount Usb Stick From Konsole (lenny)

Nov 19, 2010

Due to a bug that will be fixed at squeeze (I'm running lennyx64), I can't mount ntfs partitions from gui interface (or else, directories with non-English characters will be ignored).

So I'm mounting with disk-manager (hd partitions only), or from konsole. Obviously, mounting from konsole, is the only option for usb flash sticks.

Suddenly, just out of the blue, today debian stopped mounting ntfs partitions from konsole. Since this was my only option for mounting safely my friend's sticks, I have a big problem right now.

I can't figure out many things from the error message:

Software :: Changing Permissions Of A Folder?

Oct 4, 2009

I've compiled my own code as root (long story why) anyway I now need to switch this to a normal user to compile. So I did a simple copy/paste (using gnome/debian lenny) to my home/user. I then logged in as used to see the folders with a padlock and permissions for root only. So I logged back in as root, change permissions to the used, check they were all ok, logged back in as user, and it still says owner root, even thought when I log in as root it shows user as owner.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Impossible To Mount A Usb Stick As Non-root User?

Feb 11, 2010

Although I can perfectly mount any usb device (stick or disc) as being root, as a user I am not allowed to perform any such action! I have modified the corresponding fstab entry to look like:

Code: usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto,user 0 0 and I have also made sure that the user is a member of the disk group, but without any luck. My system is OpenSuSE 11.2 (with KDE 4.4, but the problem is the same regardless I am attempting to mount the usb device via the GUI or through the text (c/k)onsole).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Label USB Stick So It Will Mount At Unique Points?

Mar 1, 2010

I have a few generic USB sticks lying around, and a few more SD/microSD chips that I use with openSUSE. Is there any way to label/ID them so they mount at unique points in /media, so I don't blast one accidentally? In mkfs.vfat there is a "-n volume-name" that looks promising, but I can't find a way to set that after the mkfs.
