Ubuntu :: Mounting In Several Folders

May 8, 2010

To get around the limitation of Ubuntu one only allowing synchronization of files in the home folder and not supporting symlinks I am trying to mount my big file store partition in my home folder as well as in the /media/hd folder where it is usually mounted.When I restart Ubuntu however there is a very scary message saying that my hard drive is not working correctly and when I say "cancel" it loads fine but only one mount point is mounted.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting Windows Network Folders?

Jul 10, 2010

I am trying to configure MPD (music player daemon) to work on my headless ubuntu server. Everything works well, but MPD cannot see the music files stored on my windows XP main computer. These files are stored at smb://LASTNAME/share/music Is there a way to directly mount this drive, so it is accessible at something like /mnt/music, in order that they work with MPD?

CentOS 5 :: Extra Root Filesystem Folders For Mounting Device

Oct 26, 2009

I was looking at the root filesystem folder for mounting a device when I noticed extra folders. I'm using an encrypted filesystem so I'm not sure if it's that, a break in or the default Red Hat layout. I searched these forums and Google to no avail on extra folders. The root system contains the following:

bin {fda00e13-8c62-4f63-9d19-d168115b11ca} media opt selinux usr
boot home misc proc srv var
dev lib mnt root sys
etc lost+found net sbin tmp

Ubuntu :: Hiding Folders Inside Of Shared Folders?

Mar 27, 2010

I am setting up a lubuntu nas with all of my music, movies, etc on it. I want to give my kids access to my mp3 directory, so I can move all of the kid appropiate music into the root of my mp3 dir, in the same order I have all of my music sorted. Under the Music folder, I have them sorted, in folders, by letter. So A, B, C, D, etc... Now, in those folders are the respective artists. So where there may be something approipate in the P folder (say, Paramore), there is something inapproipate (say, Pantera)Now, when the kids go to the P folder, I don't want them to even see the Pantera folder. I just want them to see the Paramore folder. I tried a test using chmod 711 and chmod 700 on a directory with a test user, and the user can't access the directory, but can still see it

Ubuntu :: Linking Content Of Windows Folders To Folders

Mar 31, 2010

The Problem was I wanted to open my /home/Pictures folder and have it display the contents of the My Pictures folder in my windows partition. This way I could have ubuntu and xp using the same set of music files, picture files, etc. I was having a very hard time understanding how to get from here to there because I'm such a newbie. However I have discovered how to do it and I wanted to post it, in hopes it will make things easier for other newbies.This allows me to see every TYPE of document in /dev/sda8/Media (windows My Documents folder) without having to see any of the folders (My Music, My Pictures, etc).

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:


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? GRUB default boot options: quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1920x1200-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap vt.handoff=7

Networking :: Mounting Permissions Error / Mounting A Windows Host?

May 28, 2009

I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:

$mount -t cifs //$ /mnt/Anita-comp
password: (I have no password so I left it blank)
Mount error (13): Permission Denied
I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.

I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?

Ubuntu :: Deleting Folders Which Contain No Mp3's?

Nov 13, 2010

I'm pretty new to Ubuntu and it might not be possible to do what I want to do here. First I'll explain the situation. Throught trying to tidy up my mp3 collection usign various pieces of software I now have a folder structure that I want (My MusicArtistalbum rack), However, in the process, I have been left with lots of other folders - these have had the mp3's removed but they contain other files (artwork, playlists, .nfo files - that kind of thing).

What I'm looking for is either a premade solution or help with a script to do the following : Check all folders in my music folder, if the folder doesn't contain any mp3's then check the subfolders, if none of them contain mp3's then delete the main folder (regardless of what otehr files are within it).

It seems like I should be able to do this - but not sure how. Incidentally, I have backed up my music folder to an external disk - so I can't do any lasting damage

Ubuntu :: How To Access My Folders By CLI - Where Did They Go

Mar 16, 2011

Lately (since about Ubuntu 9.10 though I'm on 10.4 now) there seems a trend towards showing folders in the GUI but not through the command line interface. Most prominent examples are the trash folder ("Waste basket", nowadays) and Samba mounts.

As it happens, I *like* the command line and would rather access those folders from CLI rather than having to use the GUI.

The folders don't show up in /etc/mtab either. Yet in "Places" they show up with an eject button next to them, implying they're mounted. Right clicking the folders in "Places" doesn't allow me to show folder properties or path. It doesn't give any further clues.

So, where did my trash folder, samba mounts, usb drives go? I'd like to be in control of my system rather than to have it control me!

Ubuntu :: Bookmarked Network Folders?

Jan 7, 2010

I have a network folder bookmarked the file browser. there is a user name and password required to access this folder. i set it to save my password forever the first time i accessed it. when my password is forced to change i can no longer access this folder. i would expect this. however it doesn't ask me for a new password when i try to access the folder. just says unable to access. Nor can i figure out how to get to a place where i can manually update this password.even if i try to smb directly to it it says unable to access with no prompt for credentials. if i smb to the folder above it it asks for credentials, and i can get into it. but when i click on the folder i want still says can not access.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Create .js Inside Some Folders

Jan 19, 2010

During two instances now I have had to create a .js file in a folder. In one instance, (POLIPO) I can create the file, I just cannot save it. I have momentarily forgotten the error message stating why. In the second instance, I have to create a user.js file inside my Firefox folder to allow cut/copy/paste functionality in order to fully utilize an internet forum. I have a Windows desktop at home and used URL...to "fix" Firefox. My laptop, however, needs to have the same capabilities and is running Ubuntu 9.04, fully updated, and Firefox 3.0.17, fully updated.

In short, I would like to know how to have complete control over functions such as "create file" EVERY time I want to. Is this a permission issue? I have only one user on the Ubuntu box. Also, how can I modify Firefox to allow for cut/copy/paste in the Mozilla Rich Text Editor?I am new to using Linux, so a minor spoonfeeding may be required.

Now, I would like to set up a second user so that someone else can use the computer with access to many of my files and folders, but not all, which would defeat having a second user. I have set sharing preferences for all of my folders. I have giving most rights to my second user. Yet the second user cannot even see ANY of my folders when they sign-in.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Only Shows Folders?

Feb 24, 2010

often we need to add attachments to things, like adding a picture to a gmail when composing or to add a picture to a document. When I try to do this, nautilus shows only folders. It shows all the folders I would expect to see but none of these folders actually contain documents. If I navigate using places and open folders of course all my files are there, I just cant see them when trying to insert a file. Why might that be? Does anyone know?

I notice the "select which types of file to show" pulldown is empty - whats happened?
