Ubuntu :: Duplicate Storage Device In Nautilus Under Places
May 26, 2011
I had troubles with my NTFS external hdd mounting without becoming root until I changed my fstab file. However after changing my fstab file I created an error in the place of the one I had fixed. Now since the change I have two entries of my external hard drive in Places. I'd like to know how to remove the duplicate entry.
Provided is my current fstab and screenshot of duplicate:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
#Entry for /dev/sda1 :
/ ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
#Entry for /dev/sdb1 :
UUID=486E622C6E62134C /media/Beast ntfs-3g auto, users,
uid=1000, gid=100, utf8, dmask=027, fmask=137 0 0
#Entry for /dev/sda5 :
UUID=064020c3-cf2f-4ba5-b0b6-49667fee4f27 none swap sw 0 0
I see this posted in several places in the past but no answers. If I use UUID in fstab to mount additional partitions I get duplicate entries for the partitions in the Places Menu. I can solve the problem by mounting the partitions by Label ( /dev/sdb2 /mountpoint ) but half of the time grub2 will not mount the drive correctly using this method and will change the volume ID (sdb2 becomes sdf2) .
here we have an older digicam (Jenoptik/Exakta Model "DC 22", if someone might want to know) that can be switched between some "PC Camera mode" and "Mass storage mode".Unfortunately, if attached to USB, it is always recognized as
I installed Nautilus-actions, in order to set up some right-click scripts. However, when I click on "nautilus actions configurations" from within the system preferences menu, I receive the following error... "Duplicate object id 'label1' on line 1000 (previously on line 940)".
The first set of links under Places in the menu bar applet open Picasa instead of nautilus and their associated folders.I tried reapplying the applet from the "add to panel" menu. No go. Also when I get into nautilus (using "computer" below the separation line in the places menu) I can access the bookmarks just fine.
I am new to ubuntu but I love it. I don't know what I did in the terminal trying to encrypt files but now when I click on something in places tab to open it using Nautilus, it does not, instead it open in a tab of Mozilla Firefox, I don't like it. How can I revert back to Nautilus like normally is?
A potentially very dumb question but still ... I want to create a place that I can choose in the panel at the top left. So I - go to Nautilus (tree view in sidepane) down in the folders until I see my destination on the left; - switch to places in the sidepane and drag and drop the folder onto the places thing.
Then, the folder shows up with the name there, which is something like "Web_ABC". So I want to change it to "Web" only. On my 64bit machine, this works, on my 32bit machine, it doesn't. Whenever I change the name and press ENTER, it goes back to the old name. On the 64bit system, it only worked when I went to some other place once, and then fine, but on the 32bit one, no chance.
Is there a way to get rid of the floppy entry in the Places? This is not the bookmarks area (which is below) so I can't just right-click and remove or remove it from Bookmarks spot. I already tried commenting the floppy in fstab and then removed the entire line to no avail. Floppy drive is disabled in the Bios, I haven't had a floppy drive in 10+ years.
I have quite a lot of testing operating systems installed. Some with their own home or boot partition. Now my places section in nautilus is an utter MESS. I was not able to find any working solution how to hide these partitions.
I was trying out bash scripts to see how to mount NetGear readyshare. I can do so using Nautilus and selecting Network but I wanted to be able to do so from a script. I don't know how it happened but when I clicked on Places/Documents it opened a terminal instead of Nautilus. This applies to all the folders in the Places menu but I can still get Nautilus by clicking Places/Computer and below.
I am trying to permanently integrate a windows network drive into my Ubuntu 11.04. I don't have Nautilus - I am using Rox Filer instead. I am trying to get this job done according to this link here (Method 2): [URL]. I want to integrate the network drive as described in Method 2, but I don't have Places->Network. Is there a way I could do this without Nautilus?
I was trying to install Sim City 4 Deluxe when somehow through my mounting an un-mounting of the two ISO's nautilus decided to make an entry in the places menu. I've searched through the forums and most of what I'm finding is how to remove things like the network and desktop items.
Here are three screenshots showing what I mean. Number one shows the entry I am talking about, specifically the SC4DELUXE1 entry. Number two shows that just right clicking and selecting remove like many threads suggest does not work here as it is grayed out. Lastly number three, this is the error I'm given when I left click the entry.
I finally figured out how to fix this. I simply went into the disk utility. Under peripheral devices the unwanted device was listed. Click the check file system button after selecting the device. It reports back that the file system is not clean and removes the device.
I'm having a strange problem in my gnome installation. I have about a dozen window managers installed, and just to test the new KDE 4.4 update I used kde for one day (use gnome mostly) and now the gnome places menu opens up the kde file manager dolphin instead of nautilus. How can I change it. It doesn't even appear in the edit menus item on right clicking the menu.
Is it possible to somehow open Nautilus file manager, or favorites, or places items using hotkey(s)? Simply going to the launcher just to open the file manager is annoying, and I'd really find it convenient to somehow launch the Nautilus using hotkey(s)
I recently preformed a full update to my openSuSe 11.3 x64 + gnome install. Everything was running fine before the update however post a number of features have stopped working or have changed. I used the command zypper up to update everything. The errors I've been recieving are as follows, Wastebasket
Won't open on via Desktop or Places menu. Gives the following error "Could not display "trash:" File Is Of An Unknown Type". If I drop things on the Wastebasket the files do go to /home/USERNAME/.local/share/Trash/files but I can't Empty Wastebasket upon right click as the option is highlighted out.
Computer Icon If I try to open it from link in Places menu I get the error Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.. The link to it has also disappeared from the left hand panel if I have a Nautilus window open. Mounted Icons Previously I used to have 4 drives mounted;
1 network (NFS), 1 encrypted (TrueMount), 2 Windows (partitions of main machine)
Out of these only the encrypted and network drive showed on the Desktop and two Windows drives would stay mounted under /windows but have no icon on the Desktop. After the update, all these drives are on the desktop and but the only way to not have them appear on Desktop is to set Gnome config not to show any of the icons on Desktop. Although these are independent errors, they are all related to folders (at least indirectly) so I felt it was better to group them together to give a better picture of the issue.
I am using a Belkin F5D 8235-4 ver 2 wireless router. My linux box is connected direct. I have a 16G flash drive installed in the usb port on the router that I want to use for storage so I can dump files I share with my other machines on the network. Windows sees this usb and works fine by just using the web browser and using 192.168.2.1usb no problem. Then I try to use my unbuntu and can not for the life of me figure out how to set up a permanent link to that drive in linux. I would like to have a direct connection on my desktop. Of course I tried Belkin and was told we do not support Linux.
Are there any tools in Ubuntu that could defragment my MP4 player (Sansa E280R)? One of the songs on my MP4 player isn't showing its Album Name or Artist Name. I know I have the artist and album name tagged onto the MP3 because I set them both & double checked using mp3tag.
I just discovered that inserting any USB drive causes an immediate hang of the system. The keyboard caps lock and scroll lock lights blink. Only recourse is to power cycle the system. This is after installing Kubuntu 9.10 in January, I don't believe I had occasion to insert a USB drive until tonight. 100% reliable. No entries in logs, presumably because it hangs the kernel when it happens. The /var/log/kern.log file has been corrupted due to file system damage (1+ sectors of some other file inserted into chain) and probably other files as well.
I've not had occasion to report other bugs, but I've found no way to report anything other than application bugs. I tried using "ubuntu-bug kernel" which helpfully said there was no such application as 'kernel' and has been busy "collecting problem information" for the last half hour or more. Somehow I don't think its ever going to finish.
The crash only happens when booted into Kubuntu 9.10. If I boot off of 9.04 then USB drives work fine. Both USB drives I've tried reliably produce the crash. One is a random cheap USB thumb drive (imprinted "Cisco"), the other is a 16GB Corsair Voyager.
I'm in need to replace a harddrive with higher capacity one but I can't tell which bay is holding on to a drive which has the OS. I don't want to pull the main drive. just wondering if there is a way to light up the led light next to physical drive/bay so I don't accidentally yank out the wrong one.
I have a 1TB external HDD which I use to store my music library of roughly 40 gigs. Therefore I would normally import music directly from it to my Rhythmbox library while keeping everything stored on the removable drive. In recent versions of Rhythmbox this is no longer needed as the application integrates my external HDD into the side pane and lists the music automatically. This is great although when closing Rhythmbox and reopening it, the drive has to be scanned all over again. This is a huge pain when it has to scan through 40+ gigs of music.
Therefore I would like this feature disabled and removed from my side pane. It is not needed and causes quite a large annoyance. Either I want it removed or the ability to keep the index of music from the drive in Rhyrhmbox at all times. Achieving this would be fantastic and would switch me back to Rhythmbox. recently I have been using Exaile which I love but rhythmbox not working bugs me.
I am beginner in UBUNTO 10.04 LTS. I have a mobile broadband of Relience which use the device of Huawei EC 1262. I have a problem with this modem. when i installed required packages for this device like usbswitch, wvdial etc, my internet connect works fine but as i switch off the PC and restart, PC can not detect the modem, it detect as mass storage device. Is there any command/option that i switch the mass storage device into modem in the terminal window or on the GUI platform mean on the desktop screen.
I am currently using opensuse 11.2 with kde 4.3.1. I am having a problem when I connect my samsung R450. It will not mount or show up as a usable device in either Dolphin, Amarok, or on the device notifier. I have tried manually mounting but I get an error saying it cannot find such device. I did not have any issues using it in 11.1 with KDE 4.2. It is being recognized by my system, but not allowing it to show up as a storage device or being mounted.
output of dmesg:
output of lsusb:
When I shut of the usb mass storage on the samsung R450 it switches to modem and is properly detected and usable as modem by my system.I don't have any other problems with other usb devices, such as a digital camera or flash drives, so I don't know if I just missing a system setting or configuring something wrong.
* I am implementing mass storage device on a test board.
* It contains NAND flash.
* Using corresponding "udc driver" and "g_file_storage" I could make my test board enumerate as mass storage device on my Linux machine.
* my 16 MB pen drive (test board) is now ready for read/write.
But there are some Bad Blocks on the NAND.Hence copy is not complete. Although on Linux machine there is no error message. Now , what is there in a normal pen drive which manages the Bad Block or what am I missing so that such Bad Blocks are managed.
Here is the error I get on my test board :
mtdblock: erase of region [0x2c0000, 0x4000] on "Bon 2" failed end_request: I/O error, dev mtdblock2, sector 5664 Buffer I/O error on device mtdblock2, logical block 708
I need to enable my new E2120 samsung phone as a mass storage device. but I think I need a USB driver. Had a good look round the forums but can't seem to find any posts. Its quite a new phone but hopefully the solution is already about. When I plug it into the USB the phones screen has a hashed out 'mass storage' option.
I am running Fedora 12 OS on my machine. I would like to disable the USB devices for normal users so that usb-storage devices cannot be plugged in. However at the same time a mouse or a keypad may/could have a usb connection. note that root should be able to use the usb storage devices. How can the same be done on fedora 12? I would prefer not to do it via the BIOS options.
I just upgraded to 15 and was wondering if it was possible to specify which devices to prioritize a route through. I have my machine, a laptop, connected to my family's router for an internet connection and a wired connection to a personal router for a faster and private connection between my other two computers and a network storage device. Whenever the laptop is connected to my personal router everything goes through it and it can't connect to any external web sites. But when I unplug it and go only on my family's wireless everything is fine, except I can't connect to the storage device since it has no external connections.
Greetings Fellow Knights Of The Penguin Clan....!I am having issues with device mapper seeing a 275GB Raid5 Lun from my SAN storage.I'm using IBM 2145 San Volume Controller.I am able to see a 40 GB Raid 10 device though..
we have purchased the Dell PowerVault NF 500 NAS Storage Box with Window Storage server 2003 is Installed.we have LDAP server for authentication the user in network for accessing network resources.All ubuntu users on client side use ubuntu(LDAP server )for user authentication.when a user logon on client side machine his home directory is created on client machine .
but we want to use the NAS storage device to store the home directories of user.we want to implement that ,whenever a user logon his home directory is created on powerValut NF 500 storage device so that all user data is stored centrally for taking the backup .we want to mount NAS storage device so that user uses when they login and create user profile.
