Ubuntu :: Removable Media Not Automatically Mounted?

May 12, 2010

I use Ubuntu 10.04, and whenever I insert media into a removable media drive, it does not come up on my desktop automatically. I need to go to Computer, then to the drive. It then appears on my desktop. Is there any way to make the device automatically appear? This problem occurs for any removable media. I am using Ubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu :: Change Default Permissions Of Removable Media Mounted Via Nautilus?

May 2, 2010

behavior in 9.04:plugged in a disk, mounted it and it as readable to the world.this is intended because it is shared via samba.behavior in 10.04:the disks have 700, meaning, they are not readable by samba.this is a problem.this is the best solution I've found so far:http://www.mail-archive.com/ubuntu-u.../msg10951.htmlexcept, that the mentioned means to fix this are gone.(gconf-editor -> ..., storage and preferences -> removable media)after 3 hours of googleing and reading I'm rather upset about this bug.so please, if you are thinking of suggesting fixed entries in the fstab or anything else that will not work with every media that is plugged into this box, just close this tab.

Ubuntu :: Home Network - Media Drives Are Automatically Mounted To Allow Access If The Admin User Is Not Logged In?

Jul 9, 2010

This is the set up I have: PC downstairs by a tv, with 3TB of storage containing my media, connected to the tv too. HTPC upstairs by another tv and connected to it. A few laptops and other desktops around the house which are windows based

I want the downstairs pc to act as a file server and to run my torrent client, it is running Ubuntu desktop version and has xbmc installed too for use with the tv. The upstairs htpc has xbmc live on and will access the media from the file server. What I am looking to do is to be able to log into my ubuntu machine remotely from a laptop running windows so I can manage the files and add torrents for download etc, but for this to be a complete remote session, rather than taking control over what is already being shown on the downstairs pc, like VNC does in windows.

I have two user accounts set up on the main ubuntu machine, the admin account and a media user account which is set to go straight to xbmc after log in. Also how can I make sure that the media drives are automatically mounted to allow access if the admin user is not logged in?

Ubuntu Installation :: Duplicate Drives In "Places" - Error "mount: /dev/sdd1 Already Mounted Or /media/Data Busy Mount: According To Mtab, /dev/sdd1 Is Already Mounted On /media/Data"

Feb 13, 2010

Just moved to Ubuntu from XP. Whole process has gone very smoothly, but left with a small problem (i.e. it isn't actually affecting usability) that I don't seem to be able to fix and can't find on forums/internet. I also have a problem with the Floppy drive, but I've seen that problem elsewhere in the forums.

It's a dual boot system with both NTFS and Ext4 drives. All are visible and fully accessible. I decided to convert one of the NTFS drive to Ext4. That appeared to be successful and was successfully remounted as an Ext4 drive. The drive label is "Data". I did have a bit of a problem getting it remounted so that I could see/use it under my log-in as opposed to just under root. It's at this point I think that I did something to create the problem.

I now have two entries for "Data" in drop down menu for Places. The true one is shown as a standard hard drive icon, but the false one is shown as a different icon - possibly an external drive icon (note that the floppy drive is also showing as the same icon and I can't access that, but I've seen that's a problem elsewhere in the forums).

I can write and read to the true "Data" hard drive. If I click on the other false "Data" icon, I get the message "mount: /dev/sdd1 already mounted or /media/Data busy mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdd1 is already mounted on /media/Data". If unmount the true drive and try to mount the false drive, the system mounts the true drive instead. If I log into nautilus as root, neither the false data drive or the floppy appear in the left hand panel.

Red Hat :: Changing Automount Options For Removable Media?

Mar 31, 2011

This appears to be a simple problem, but I struggled my way around google, trying to figure out the right words to search for, with no real success. The problem:When I plug-in any usb device or an external hard disk, my RedHat automatically mounts it to /media/<device_name>. Unfortunately, it's owner and group are both root, whereas, I would like to add other users to have write access (say, all users in a group usb_group to be able to write stuff in it). Currently only read access is there for others. I would like to change it to write access to a particular group and I can add the

Debian :: How To Change Permissions On Exfat Removable Media

Jul 20, 2015

I'm going traveling and I had the bright idea of putting my sensitive and irreplaceable files on an sd card. Then if I leave my stuff in a sketchy hostel for the day, I can easily take the card and might lose only a replaceable netbook. The problem is that I want some files to have 600 permissions (rw-------), readable and writable only by owner.

But no power on earth seems to be able to force a fuse-ified filesystem to pay attention. Whether I try "chmod 600 filename.txt" as the owner/user or as sudo makes no difference. Nothing works. The sd card is mounted with a line in /etc/fstab:

Code: Select allUUID=0000-0000 /mnt/64_GB_sdxc  exfat  auto,rw,user,exec,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0022,flush,fmask=133  0    0

So the user owns the files and they have typical permissions instead of the automounted default of 700. That's all very nice, but I'd like to be able to change permissions on just a few files!

Fedora :: Mount Removable Media From Command Line

Jul 6, 2010

I'm using Fedora 12, and I want to mount/unmount my USB memory stick from the command line. I know I could edit /etc/fstab and so on, but I want to emulate what happens when you mount using the GUI (I use KDE and the device notifier), that is, I want to be able to do this as an unprivileged user and not have to know the mount point exists in advance.

I'm sure in older versions of Fedora there was a command something like `gnome-user-mount' which let me do this knowing only the filesystem label... What is the current equivalent?

Fedora :: Disable Automounting Removable Media When They Inserted (CD And DVD)?

I want to disable automounting removable media when they are inserted, especially CD and DVD. I use F13 and Gnome. I went through System/Preferences/File Management/Media and set everything to "Do Nothing", see below:

I have installed gconf-editor and verified that all automounting options are unchecked:

according to "/sbin/chkconfig --list" haldaemon is off and automount is not installed.
What else should I check?

General :: Disappear Desktop Icon For Removable Media?

Mar 16, 2010

Ubuntu 9.04 Gnome Desktop (although I have seen the same situation in other versions).When I have a removable media device installed such as a USB flash drive, a CD/DVD or an SD card in the built in reader I have a corresponding icon on the desktop. So here is my situation...I have a 16 GB SDHC card installed in the reader in my netbook as additional storage. As the main solid state "hard drive" itself is only 16 GB I leave the card in at all times. I would like to do away with the desktop icon as I never use it to access the SD card. Any way to do this? I believe it appear as part of the HAL process so perhaps it will go away with 10.04.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unabling Autorun Without Removable Drives And Media Option?

Jan 10, 2010

I've just partitioned my hard drive with GParted so that I have space to install and run Windows OS based programmes such as Monkey Island (wine simply won't work) and other PC games. I have the Windows XP SP2 Installation CD but my OS (Intrepid Ibex) won't allow me to autorun the CD and proceed to installation.

Now having hunted around the net little, it seems the answer is System->Preferences->Removable Drives and Media. Problem is, I don't have a Removable Drives and Media option on this menu. Is there a workaround for this? E.g., is there a way of using the Terminal to enable autorun, or is there another way I can do this?As I'm pretty new to this thing, feel free to use short words and detailed explanations.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting Removable Devices When Plugged In

May 26, 2009

I want the following behavior in kubuntu 9.04 when I plug a device (USB stick or CD disk):

1. It should be mounted automatically for me. Now it isn't, though it appears in fdisk -l output: Code: Disk /dev/sdd: 8006 MB, 8006926336 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 30544 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 512 * 512 = 262144 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x9b12d290
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdd1 * 16 30544 7815232 b W95 FAT32 and if I mount it manually, all goes OK

2. If I mount manually my CD disk and then press the eject button on my drive nothing happens until I manually unmount the drive. But I want it to open immediately

All this worked for me in kubuntu 8.10, and broke with the upgrade.
My fstab entries Code: /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /media/usb vfat noexec,codepage=866,utf8,nosuid,nodev,quiet,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=077,user 0 0

Debian Configuration :: Systemd Automounts For Removable Media Not Timing Out

Jul 18, 2015

I have the following hardware setup:

a NAS running Debian that frequently (but not always) has two removable media attached,a Debian desktop that mounts the above NAS via sshfs,the aforementioned removable media are symlinked to the directory on tha NAS that is then mounted by the desktop.

What I'd like this setup to do is to immediately time out if mounts as unavailable. Instead, I only get the expected behaviour if the NAS is down (the ssh client takes about 3 seconds to do that); if it's up, the removable media automounts (they are symlinked to the directory shared with the desktop) seem to never time out, ever. This happens locally on the NAS as well, when ssh'ing to the NAS and trying to run `ls /media/Storage` or `ls /media/Backup`, these commands never return. It's as if systemd was ignoring the x-systemd.device-timeout setting on the NAS.

The relevant part of the NAS's fstab:

Code: Select all/dev/sdb1       /media/Backup   ext4    defaults,noauto,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.device-timeout=1s,rw,user,nofail,x-systemd.idle-timeout=30s       0       1
/dev/sdc1       /media/Storage  ext4    defaults,noauto,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.device-timeout=1s,rw,exec,nofail,x-systemd.idle-timeout=5min      0       1

[Code] ....

I find it highly interesting that despite both removable media being detached, only one is flagged as having a dependency failed. Both paths exhibit the hang behaviour, though.

What can I do to actually time out when the media are not there?

Debian Multimedia :: Disable Write Caching For Removable Media?

Feb 9, 2010

how to make removable media (e.g. USB sticks) not have any write caching. I want to prevent data loss when they are removed after file copying appears done but before write caches are written. I'm using Gnome on Squeeze.

I've found suggestions of adding the 'sync' mount option to /system/storage/default_options/vfat/mount_options in the Gnome configuration. However this doesn't seem to completely eliminate write buffering, as the drive activity light continues for several seconds after file copying appears done, and unmounting drives produces a dialog box which says to wait whilst data is written to disk.

Security :: Restricting Remote Users From Accessing Removable Media?

I run a system that users may log into either remotely or physically. Multiple users may be logged in simultaneously because of the remote access, but only one user can be physically logged in at a time.With the current setup, however, if the physical user inserts a flash drive (which the OS mounts automatically) then the remote users gain access to the removable media.

Ubuntu Security :: Virus Scanner To Scan Some Removable Media (USB Drives, Mp3 Players, Etc)?

Hardware :: Automatically Mount Removable Drives In Red Hat Enterprise 5?

Aug 6, 2010

so that short description doesn't cut the mustard. Let me start by describing what I had working in RHEL4, so you know the requirements. There is a group here at my job that does a lot of data transfer to external USB drives. I leveraged fstab-sync (which we normally turn off at my work) and created a FDI policy file to search on the drives' HAL descriptors, set the mount options, and define the mount point by name (each drive is uniquely named).

The result of all this is that when the user plugged in a drive, it mounted in /media automatically, on a unique path, and with permissions so that every user could read/write to it. SO now we're upgrading to RHEL5, and fstab-sync doesn't exist any more. Instead there's gnome-mount (did I mention we use Gnome?) and I can't figure out how to get the same functionality working.

Slackware :: Create Mount Points Automatically For Removable Drives?

Jan 9, 2010

At work I use Ubuntu and one nice thing about it is that it creates mount points for removable drives automatically.

In Slackware I can set up XFCE so that it mounts drives when they are plugged in, but only if they're already specified in the fstab (which means I must have used them and set them up in advance).

This is becoming a problem now that removable usb drives of all sorts are so common.

OpenSUSE :: System No Longer Responds To Removable Media Such As Flash Drives And Insertions Of DVD/CD Disks?

May 20, 2010

Through some recent update, which one I am not sure, my system no longer responds to removable media such as flash drives and insertions of DVD/CD disks. Whereas before, for instance, if I inserted a USB flash drive, the "Device Notifier" would pop up, tell me that a new device had been detected, and ask me what I wanted to do with it, now nothing. "My Computer" (sysinfo:/)does not update either. The kernel knows the device is there, since I can see it when I do "lsusb". OpenSuSE x86_64 11.2.

Ubuntu :: Mounted Media Not Showing On Desktop?
