Ubuntu :: How To Automount USB Drives As User

Apr 4, 2011

My USB devices are being automounted as root in Ubuntu 10.10. How can I automount them as the current user? Here is the output of:

sudo fdisk -l
ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid

For this example, /dev/sdc1 is connected.

Debian :: Automount USB Drives

Oct 2, 2015

Is there a way to set up your system (running CLI only, no X) to automount flash drives? I know how to mount them manually, but I'd really like it if there was a way to just have the system do it automatically when I plug the drive in so I don't have to do it myself every time.

Ubuntu :: Setup Two External Hard Drives To Automount In Fstab

Sep 10, 2010

I have set up two external hard drives to automount in fstab with the following lines:

/dev/sdb1 /media/DownstairsBackup ntfs-3g rw,auto,user,exec,sync 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/UpstairsBackup ntfs-3g rw,auto,user,exec,sync 0 0

And right after I restart, all users have permission to read and write, and everything is fine. However, I have an automated backup utility (BackinTime) installed to back up particular (mounted network) directories every night, but whenever I check up on it the next day, I get the error "Unable to mount ..... Authorization required". (These network directories are mounted into the local filesystem in fstab as well.) Oddly enough, if I run BackinTime by hand as the users, it works fine. I'm running 10.04 LTS.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Making NTSF-3G Automount All Drives Again

Jun 23, 2009

I recently upgraded to Fedora 11 because an update broke my X server. In Fedora 10 ntfs-3g automounted all of my devices in gnome but now it doesn't. Is there a way to fix this, other than editing /etc/fstab with a line for every partition?

Red Hat :: ESATA Cards And Drives Under RHEL4 - Automount Like A USB Drive Does

Jul 7, 2010

Anyone got any experience with eSATA cards and drives under RHEL4? I've got a client with two RHEL4 boxes that want to add eSATA cards and drives for backup purposes.

They really need to automount like a USB drive does, would RHEL4 automount eSATA?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Automount Cifs Network Drives In Fstab?

May 24, 2011

I just made a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.4-Tumbleweed and have the latest updates. However fstab lines I've used in the past are not working.

Here's an example of two:
//IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs credentials=/home/user/.scripts/.creds,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users 0 0
//IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs guest,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users

I can execute a command

sudo mount /home/user/mount and it works, but I'm wanting all my fstab lines to automount at boot as on other machines.

Security :: AutoMount Any/all USB Drives READ-ONLY For Security (RHEL5)?

Mar 24, 2011

how to automount USB devices read-only for security in RHEL5? I'm looking for the generic solution for any USB device, so I'm not looking to hardcode something into /etc/fstab.I've hunted around and I can't find a clear answer and my various attempts have failed. I've looked at /etc/auto.misc, UDEV, and HAL. Here's where I'm at which isn't working.I have RHEL5 and from what I can tell HALD manages the automounting. HAL seems to have 2 primary directories:


The difference between the two is unclear to me.Based on some examples, I created the following file:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->

<deviceinfo version="0.2">[code]....

No matter what I call this file or where I put it, any USB device still mounts RW. How do I fix this? Am I correct that HAL is the right place? Looking through dmesg, it sure looks like HAL controls this, but maybe I'm wrong? I've also made various attempts to solve this with UDEV and /etc/auto.misc, so if it is one of those, I clearly don't know the correct thing to do there.

Ubuntu Servers :: RAID-1 OS Drives - Setting Up A Backup Procedure For The OS Drives

Jan 18, 2010

I'm breaking into the OS drive side with RAID-1 now. I have my server set up with a pair of 80 GB drives, mirrored (RAID-1) and have been testing the fail-over and rebuild process. Works great physically failing out either drive. Great! My next quest is setting up a backup procedure for the OS drives, and I want to know how others are doing this.

Here's what I was thinking, and I'd love some feedback: Fail one of the disks out of the RAID-1, then image it to a file, saved on an external disk, using the dd command (if memory serves, it would be something like "sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=backupfilename.img") Then, re-add the failed disk back into the array. In the event I needed to roll back to one of those snapshots, I would just use the "dd" command to dump the image back on to an appropriate hard disk, boot to it, and rebuild the RAID-1 from that.

Does that sound like a good practice, or is there a better way? A couple notes: I do not have the luxury of a stack of extra disks, so I cannot just do the standard mirror breaks and keep the disks on-hand, and using something like a tape drive is also not an option.

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot 2 *seperate* Drives \ Several 1.5TB+ Drives, And One Of Them Is Not Being Used?

May 1, 2011

I've used it once before but got fed up with the boot asking me everytime I turned my laptop on because I wasn't using it enough. I have Windows 7 on drive C . I want to keep it on drive C. I have several 1.5TB+ drives, and one of them is not being used. I want to dedicate it to Ubuntu, and be able to do a dual boot with my Windows 7 install. Is this possible? If it is, what about when this drive is not connected to my laptop? Will that mess up the boot process?

Server :: 2 Separate External Hard Drives With ESata To Minimize An Electrical Failure To The Drives?

Mar 26, 2011

I am building a home server that will host a multitude of files; from mp3s to ebooks to FEA software and files. I don't know if RAID is the right thing for me. This server will have all the files that I have accumulated over the years and if the drive fails than I will be S.O.L. I have seen discussions where someone has RAID 1 setup but they don't have their drives internally (to the case), they bought 2 separate external hard drives with eSata to minimize an electrical failure to the drives. (I guess this is a good idea)I have also read about having one drive then using a second to rsync data every week. I planned on purchasing 2 enterprise hard drives of 500 MB to 1 GB but I don't have any experience with how I should handle my data

Fedora :: Prevent Mounting Of External Drives & CD / DVD Drives

Oct 18, 2010

I suspect this is not new but I just can't find where it was treated. Maybe someone can give me a good lead.I just want to prevent certain users from accessing CD/DVD drives and all external drives. They should be able to mount their home directories and move around within the OS but they shouldn't be able to move data away from the PC. Any Clues?

General :: Files That Span Multiple Drives Drives?

Jan 8, 2010

So, at the moment I have a 7TB LVM with 1 group and one logical volume. In all honesty I don't back up this information. It is filled with data that I can "afford" to lose, but... would rather not. How do LVMs fail? If I lose a 1.5TB drive that is part of the LVM does that mean at most I could lose 1.5TB of data? Or can files span more than one drive? if so, would it just be one file what would span two drives? or could there be many files that span multiple drives drives? Essentially. I'm just curious, in a general, in a high level sense about LVM safety. What are the risks that are involved?

Edit: what happens if I boot up the computer with a drive missing from the lvm? Is there a first primary drive?

I have one Fedora 14 and one Fedora 15 installed on two separate USB drives.When I boot into any of these drives, I can't access any of the other hard drives from the other drivesll I can, but just the boot partitions.Is there any way of mounting the other partitions so I can access the information?---------- Post added at 12:42 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:34 AM ----------I guess even an explanation on why I can't view them would be good too.

Hardware :: Replace 2 Old Drives For 2 Bigger Drives?

Aug 23, 2010

I have an email server that I think is about to have a hard drive fail. It is running an old install of Redhat 9.0 I think. It has 2 120gb hard drives mirrored as a raid1. I want to copy those to a new pair of 500gb hard drives again as the same disk raid1 mirror. What tool would work for this? DD or partimage? Would it all be exactly the same and boot up still?

Ubuntu Installation :: Don't Want Automount In 10.04?

May 24, 2010

I have a problem that I can not decide for 2 weeks. Here is what happened: On my laptop, installed just Windows XP. In the past, when I installed the second system, Ubuntu 9.04 or 9.10 (for dual-boot), Ubuntu asked the administrator password for access to just Windows XP partition. I mean, that just Windows XP partitions were visible, but for the entrance (mount) needed a root password.

Now, in Ubuntu 10.04, Windows XP partition mount automatically and Ubuntu does not require the root password. I do not like it very much.

Tell me please, what do the settings at the time of installation of Ubuntu for just Windows XP that the system would be asking root password for just Windows XP partitions? Is this possible? I think - yes. Because in the past the default 9.04 and 9.10 asked for a password.

PS: I must say, as I put Ubuntu and just Windows: 1. Be installed just Windows XP, giving it 20 GB space 100 GB hard drive. </span>The remaining 80 Gigabytes leave out the implications.

Ubuntu :: USB Automount Not Working?

Nov 13, 2010

today when I inserted my usbpen in the laptop, automount did not work. I tried another pen with same result. I checked with mountmanager and both pens were working and actually mounted them manually, but automount which worked perfectly yesterday now is dead.I found a workaround installing usbmount from standard repository and now automount works again but usbpens are mounted in /MEDIA/usbx instead with their names as before and I have to open a root terminal tu unmount.

Unfortunately I use a pen for backup with unison and changing the mount position I have to modify unison profile every time, which is pretty uncomfortable.The problem May arise from the fact thgat yesterday I tried to manually compile and install the canon driver for my printer and trying to solve dependencies I had to compile and install Glib-2.26 pango-1.28.3 and gtk+2.22 from their sources.I did not manage to get a working canon driver but i may have made a mess with usb automount function.program/service is responsible for usb automount in ubuntu 10.10 so that i can reinstall or reconfigure it.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Disable The USB Automount

Jan 25, 2011

My goal is to prevent gnome from mounting and opening up a file browser when any device is plugged in (USB, CD/DVD) for a Desktop User account. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook RemixI modified several settings in Nautilus (Edit --> Preferences --> Media (tab). I Selected "Never prompt or start programs on media insertion" and unchecked "Browse media when inserted".I restarted the system, but when I plug in a USB mass storage device the file browser window still appears and the device is mounted.I dug down into gconf and found the following registry keys that I believe are of interest:

/apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount (unchecked)
/apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount_open (unchecked)
/apps/nautilus/preferences/media_autorun_never (checked)

Has anybody run into this problem and found a solution? Modifying the keys I mentioned above worked for everyone else that has asked the "disable automounting" question (that I've found). Some very old posts mentioned gnome-volume-manager, but it is not installed on my system.

EDIT:This seems to only happen when the Netbook Launcher is started. If Netbook Launcher is removed from the list of startup programs and the system is restarted, I can insert devices without getting a pop-up window and without the device being mounted.
