Ubuntu :: Gnome Auto Mount Permissions Policykit-1

Aug 6, 2010

why can I not allow remote sessions admin rights? why is there a remote exception thrown when Gnome auto mounts my cdrom? Here is a valid use case for auto mounting on a headless server. Server live in external room, admin pc lives in different part of same building. Server needs new software on CD admin walks to server puts cd in server walks to admin pc installs software. Currently you need to mount manually. not a big deal but could be so much easier if I didn't have to do this.who can a moan to in order to get policykit changed.

P.S. I'm a developer willing to put my time where my mouth is and change this.

Software :: After A Recent Update My Policykit Permissions Stopped Working?

Apr 14, 2011

after a recent update my policykit permissions stopped working, and I can't understand why.An example: mounting a flash drive requires password, hinting on rg.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount. /usr/share/polkit-/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks.policy has the following:

<action id="org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount">
<description>Mount a device</description>

OpenSUSE Network :: User Permissions And Auto-mount On Windows Drive

Feb 11, 2010

I'm running OpenSuse 11.2. I've got it running mostly the way I want and it connects to my wireless internet no problem. I have a external hard-drive on my Windows machine setup as a share folder. I can mount the drive with:


mount // /home/james/mnt/win However when I do mount like this it doesn't give my any read/write privliages on the drive. Also on a slightly different issue but still mounting related I have my HDD partitioned into four main drives (not including swap etc). They are my Windows drive, a seperate storage partition formatted for Windows, my main linux drive and a seperate parition for linux storage.

I want to have my Windows drive, my Windows storage drive and my linux storage drive all mounted on boot. I tried adding these to fstab, and they mount fine but again I have no read/write permissions. My fstab looks like this:


/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD2500BEVT-35ZCT0_WD-WXE908AE4273-part5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD2500BEVT-35ZCT0_WD-WXE908AE4273-part6 / ext4


Lastly I would like my Windows Share drive to mount on boot but I have been advised that I would need to write a shell script for this, to do network checks as obviously I won't always be connecting to my network.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: PolicyKit: Only One User Can Mount USB Sticks

Jan 31, 2011

Looks like its some sort of PolicyKit issue. Documentation (and I suspect the system itself) all assume that I have only one user. But my computer is a two-seat, my girlfriend and I are logged in at the same time. Only I am able to mount and write to USB drives. I suspect its because my account is always logged in first.

Dolphin gives the following error: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy
blah blah org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable auth_admin_keep_always

So my guess is that this "auth_admin" for some reason only refers to my user. I opened up the "Global Configuration" application (something that typed up when I filtered for 'policy' in the application launcher), and added my user, my girlfriends user and the 'user' group as "System Administrators". I logged out and logged back in on her account and this did nothing.

Server :: Auto Mount USB Drive To Specified Mount Point After Reboot

Jul 19, 2010

I have servers installed with RHEL 4 2.6.9-89.0.9 ELsmp. I tried using uuid and label in /etc/fstab to automount usb drives to mountpoints that I specify after reboot. Unfortunately, it just does not work in all my RHEL4 servers. After every reboot, /etc/fstab will be automatically modified and all configurations related to my USB drives will be changed. Irregardless of whether i use UUID or LABEL in my /etc/fstab.However, it works on RHEL5. But, upgrading is not an option in my environment. I have been googling around looking for alternatives but everything seems to point back to using UUID or LABEL in /etc/fstab. Anyone has tried something that works? Please help me, thank you.

General :: Setup Fstab To Automatically Mount NTFS Partitions - GUI To Set The Mount Permissions?

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.

1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?

2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?

Ubuntu :: Auto Mounting Ntfs Drive With Execute Permissions?

May 10, 2011

Current when my NTFS external drive is auto mounted, I can't run any executables from it.

If I unmount it and then manually do:

sudo mkdir /media/portable
sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/portable

it works fine. Is there a way to make the auto-mount have "full" access so I can run applications from it?

Fedora :: Backup Drive Listed Twice (Make Auto Set Permissions)

Dec 14, 2009

I have an issue that my BACKUP drive is listed twice. (internal FAT) I am running F12 32b. I have it listed in FSTAB so it will automount & set the permissions. I did this in the earlier versions I upgraded from. I would like to either get rid of the other entry or, if easier, make it auto & set permissions but I don't know where it is.

Hardware :: Phone And Memory Card Auto Mounting With Write Permissions

Feb 4, 2010

Few weeks ago modified my old mobile phone SE k750i by setting on it w800i firmware. After this my phone isn't really (fully automatically) recognized by Ubuntu (9.10) which is the small problem for me now. Linux recognizes it as a USB device, but doesn't automatically mount it, which is why I have to do that manually and that leads to read only permissions for my user.

Here are the few outputs:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 046d:c222 Logitech, Inc. G15 Keyboard / LCD
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 046d:c221 Logitech, Inc. G15 Keyboard / Keyboard
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0fce:d028 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:c018 Logitech, Inc. Optical Wheel Mouse
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:c223 Logitech, Inc. G15 Keyboard / USB Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
dmesg | grep usb .....

I've tried to create a custom udev rule via this thread, by putting the correct information according to lsusb:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0fce", ATTRS{idProduct}=="d028", MODE="0660", OWNER="zivs"
and reloading the udev rules, but that didn't help also.

How could I make my Ubuntu mount the /dev/sdb1 (which is my phone's memory card, since manually mounting it, there's all my phone recorded stuff) automatically on Desktop with all read and write permissions when I connect my phone to computer? Phone gets recognized immediately on Win7 OS ... but after the firmware change it's not really recognized by Ubuntu anymore.

Ubuntu :: Disable Auto Mount Of Partitions?

Jan 9, 2010

I just installed kubuntu 9.10 and noticed that several partitions (fat32 and ntfs) are mounted automatically after I login. I searched /etc/fstab but found no entries for those partitions. So I guess there may be something like start-up scripts that automatically detect and mount all partitions on the hard disk at boot/login. Does anybody know the location of those scripts (if any)? I want to disable that auto mount.

Ubuntu :: How To Auto-mount Volumes/Partitions

Feb 21, 2010

I have 9.10 and notice that when I look in Places none of my volumes/partitions are mounted - if I click on them I have to enter my user password to authenticate to gain access. My problem is that (with some help) I have set up rsync so it runs when I shut down my PC and backs up my Home folder from a partition on sda to a partition on sdb - this is great but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

I have done some tests and discovered that if I use my PC and never manually mount my backup sdb partition the rsync does not work (I also have GAdmin-rysnc so I can run manually backup but this also will not run if I do no mount the sdb volume). However, if I do mount the sdb backup partition and close down/restart then the backup works. What I need is my sdb backup partition to be automatically mounted every time I switch on - can this be done? I'm sure I had this working in 9.04 (auto mounting) but 9.10 seems not to like it.

Ubuntu :: Get Devices To Auto-mount On Connection?

Jun 2, 2010

I have many flash drives, memory sticks, card reader, and 2 mybook 1tb so i am constanly plugging in, or unplugging devices from my machine running the latest version of ubuntu (i beleive 10.04?). I remember when i use to connect a device it would mount and work right off the bat. but now, everytime i connect anything, i have to go through Disk Utility to select the drive and mount it (also unmount before disconnect). Another problem is that some times disk utility doesnt like to work (as with a few other programs). This happends every now and then and im not sure if its my systems hardware or this version of ubuntu. every now and then programs like to stop responding (turn grey) and some programs like disk utility will open up, but just be blank and not show the detected devices

Ubuntu Installation :: Auto Mount After Upgrading To 10.4

Jun 12, 2010

I upgraded to 10.4 and installed Grub on a wrong drive. This means that I have it on the right drive (the one with Ubuntu) and in the wrong one (the one use for data). I have no problems with booting to Ubuntu or Windows. I can even access the files from the data drive (called Storage) after the systems boots. The thing is that I can't auto mount it anymore (with /etc/fstab) and I don't know how to remove grub from the drive, because I can't find where the boot files are. When booting Ubuntu, a message appears saying that there has been an error when trying to mount the drive, I press 'S', to skip the mounting and it goes to the desktop with no problems after that. I only want to be able to auto mount it, even if I can't remove it.

This is the info from Boot Info Script:
Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010
=> Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks on the same drive in partition #1 for /boot/grub.

Ubuntu Servers :: Auto Mount Of An Usb Drive?

Sep 1, 2010

I just changed the os on my media server from Windows Home Server to Unbuntu 10.4 server. I got most of it working (samba, twonkymedia)

The only thing i have left to get working is the backup of that server. I installed bacula as i beleive it will do the job (unless someone has a better and simpler to configure idea) and i would like it to backup to my external usb 1Tb hard drive. I am able to mount the drive manually but this server gets turn on and off often to save power (and cut the electric bill) when not in use. I tried adding a line to fstab but when a do that, the server gets stuck on the startup even with the drive turned on. I read somewhere that i should use the UUID of the drive as it could change from sbd1 to sbh1 on restart so i did, same result.
