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.

Ubuntu :: Can't Login After Trying To Fix Nautilus Not Showing Desktop

Apr 12, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 9.10, and is the only OS installed on my system. Yesterday, my desktop stopped working - no right-click function / display of icons. My wallpaper was still intact. The last thing I did was pressed ALT + F2 and executed "gksudo nautilus". This fixed my desktop for the time being, but wasn't showing the correct icons/wallpaper.The real problem started when I restarted. I get the normal login screen, and when I enter my info, it just restarts back to the login screen. I know I am entering the correct information, my caps lock isn't on etc. If I enter my password incorrectly it doesn't reload, it just acts normal and says the pw was wrong. Only when I enter my info correctly does it go to a black screen really quick, then come back to the boot screen.

I am at work right now, but will be checking this thread again later tonight. Please help, I am locked out of my computer which I desperately need to log in to!

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 :: Not All Windows Folder Showing Up In Nautilus / List Them?

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:


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 :: Disable Showing Of Mounted Volumes On Desktop And In Nautilus Sidebar?

May 1, 2010

I have a bit unusual request.
There are three partitions on my hard drive. Two of them were assigned to mount points / and /home during system installation. The third one was left intact.
After installation the first two partitions were automatically integrated into directory tree and there was a shortcut on the Nautilus sidebar for the third one. Then, I registered the third partition in /etc/fstab for automounting at /home/user/Data directory. For now it works fine, the volume is mounted on startup. But I still have the shortcut to this volume in Nautilus sidebar and icon on my Desktop.
I am interested, if it is possible to disable showing of this items on Desktop and in Nautilus to make the third partition look like registered at system setup time.

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.

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:

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

Ubuntu :: Mounting A Partition On A Partition Unstable?

Jan 19, 2011

I have come across the following statement: " When a FAT32 partition is mounted at '/media/windows', all access to '/media/windows' and everything below it is transparently handled by the Linux kernel using the 'vfat' module. Applications need not know they're dealing with anything else. However, mounting a partition at a location inside of another mounted partition is unpredictable, unstable, and generally a bad idea. "

Is it correct? Most of my partitions are mounted on /home, which is on a separate partition; and I have one "level 3" partition. I have been using Ubuntu for nearly three years so far with no problems (except for /home losing it's format once).

Fedora :: Fc14 Amd64 Gnome - Hiding Hidden Files In Dolphin And Showing Full Location In Nautilus?

Apr 4, 2011

Trying the various settings (and noticing ubuntu gnome users recently had the same exact OPPOSITE problem -- they can't SHOW hidden files in dolphin) to hide my hidden files in dolphin is not working. The settings are saved OK, but those damn (ending in tilde, ie "~") files do NOT ever hide! I even see the correct little green recycling symbol on them, indicating they're identified as such, but no actual hiding goes on..

Nautilus, which I've used before (but have grown tired of, and was looking forward to dolphin), also has a weird issue that seems to have appeared with FC13 (I'd been using FC12 'til now mostly because of this) - there's no way (AFAIK) to tell it to show the location; to see it, you have to click Go->Location each time. Previously I could set it to print out the whole file or server path and it would stay that way when I opened new windows.. This is on fresh install & update.. kernel is

Ubuntu :: Mounting HDD Image Of LVM Partition

Mar 13, 2010

I have a dedicated server that Ubuntu 9.04 operating system has been installed on it. Before this dedicated server, I had another server that according to some reasons, it was put aside and I requested my datacenter support team to attach previous server's HDD to my new server in order to transfer its information to the new server's HDD. On the disks of previous HDD, Ubuntu 8.04 LTS OS had been installed and most of its capacity was full, but while I mounted that HDD on the new server, the contents of the primary partition were visible but the contents of the extended partition weren't visible. After some inspectings, I observerd that the extended partition type is converted to LVM. Before this, I didn't deal with this kind of partition. I tried to mount this partition but I failed. I read many articles about this problem and implemented instructions on the HDD but the LVM partition was never mounted that returns many different errors and even I pursued the reasons of this errors but non of these remedies didn't solve this problem. Since the datacenter had determined a specifies time for transfering information. then I had to return the SCSI HDD on the specified time, so I was forced to make an image of the hard disk by "TestDisk" software. I've made that image from the LVM partition which its capacity amounts to 150 GB but still I'm not able to mount the image according to instructions on the different related websitres. Since I'm really dummy in Linux Fle System field, I request you to help me to mount this image or extract its contents.

Ubuntu :: U11.04 Not Mounting My Swap Partition / Fix It?

May 11, 2011

Ubuntu has been complaining about swap not being ready during boot. The swap partition was showing up un-known in gparted. I booted off CD, reformatted it to swap. Error message gone but system monitor > resources shows my swap size to be 86GB (the exact size of my shared NTFS volume). gparted shows the swap partition as not 'swapped on'

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 along side Windows 7 (as well as my factory restore partition) and an NTFS shared partition.

My partition structure in order of location on disc. Screen shot below to help.
sda1-2 Windows 7
sda4, extended partition

Ubuntu :: Logical Partition Not Shown In Nautilus

Feb 14, 2010

I have a logical partition formatted with NTFS and created (from Windows) after Ubuntu 9.10 was installed. It's name is "Volume". Now, it doesn't show under places nor nautilus. I think it is shown when using the Live CD again. It is shown in Volume Manager. How can I have it show up next to my other partitions?

Ubuntu :: Mounted Partition Not Showing Up In Fstab

Jan 16, 2011

I'm totally new with linux and Ubuntu. I've just installed 10.10 yesterday and since then it's been an uphill struggle These forums has helped me out quite a bit already so I hope you can continue doing it with this problem I have.I got a single drive where the bootpartition is ext4 and the other "storage" partition is a remenant from a windows 7 installation I had, with NTFS. Decided I wanted to give Ubuntu a try! Now i've run into permission trouble though, mainly because I wanted to set up an FTP server (oh what a struggle THAT's been, I have some stories... ). I've done a "mount --bind" so that I can reach different resources directly from my chroot. It turns out though that the mounted partition isn't giving anyone except the owner (me) permission to see the resources. FTPing into the server gives the mount points but gives a 550 error and can't list anything inside of them.It works perfectly for me just running it at the prompt or using the mount points directly in the Ubuntu GUI though (since I'm the owner/admin/whatever).

My intended solution that I've found was that people with NTFS drives did a few magic tricks with the line of text in Fstab so they could access their NTFS drives. Problem for me is that my sda3 mount isn't showing up at all in fstab, even though fstab is supposed to (as far as I know) show all mounted devices on there. All the while, I have my sda3 totally accessible from /media/Storage/. Any pointers as to why this is?After I installed Ubuntu, I just mounted the sda3 with the Disk Utility from System->Administation and didn't think much of it afterwards until now.What's the best course of action here? remount the ntfs partiton using fstab? Convert the ntfs partition into an ext4? I have a lot of data on there I want to keep as well.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mounting Partition Not During Startup

Jun 19, 2010

yesterday I did an upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 and this time it was a mixed experience, most thing worked, but some things like gdm, sound and other setting need(ed) corrections to work again (as in 9.10).In 9.10 I setup my system so that the second partition (data) was only manually mounted after asking for my password.

After updating 10.04 I asking me at every bootup whether I want to manually mount or skip the mounting. And when I manually mount the partition I don't need any password anymore.Why did the upgrade change my setting?Not being an linux-expert, having not documented how I have done the previous setup and being unlucky with google, I could use some pointers in the right direction.Even if I sound not so happy at the moment I really appreciate the good work that went into ubuntu. After setting up my system after each new installation or upgrade I enjoyed a carefree time with ubuntu (where I forget everything I need to setup my system because it just works as it should).
