[Solved] Shortcuts to other partitions

Postby ninomrki on Thu Jan 24, 2013 5:00 am

First of all, I would like to apologize for starting another topic about this. I did see topics about it somewhere on the forum, but I can't find them any more.

The problem is simple: if I make a shortcut to a file or a folder on another partition, next time I turn my PC on, the shortcut doesn't work. I need someone to give me a simple step by step guide on how to make that work.

Keep in mind that I am married, i have a kid, I work a lot and I don't sleep much, so thinking makes my head hurt :cry: . I need a simple guide without too much explaining or options. I'll do it how ever you did it and name what ever I need the same way you named it. As long as it works, I'm happy.

Thank you!

Ok, first some questions: those files/folders/partitions, are they on an internal disc or external (USB) disc? Where do you place those shortcuts? On your desktop? And how did you create them?

The link is most likely not working because the partition has been mounted somewhere different from last time.
If the partition is internal (on your HDD) rather than on a USB or external HDD, read on.

First, get the name of your partition. You can use either the path (eg. /dev/sdb1) or the UUID. Either one will work.
Open a terminal (Accessories > Terminal) and type in:
Code: Select all
sudo fdisk -l

When prompted, enter your root password.
This will list your available partitions. Find the one you want and note its location (eg. /dev/sdb1) and system (eg. Linux)

Now, still in the terminal, type:
Code: Select all
sudo mkdir /media/sdb1

where sdb1 matches the value found earlier.
If the directory already exists, we'll probably need to choose another one.
Assuming it doesn't exist, run:
Code: Select all
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 -t ext4 /media/sdb1

where sdb1 matches the earlier value. If it's a Windows partition, change ext4 to ntfs. If it's linux, ext4 is likely.
If it won't mount because the device is already mounted, eject it and try again.
It if works, type in:
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/fstab

You may instead need to type in sudo pluma /etc/fstab if you're using MATE.
This will open up a text document that lists your automatically mounted partitions.
Add a new line to it like so:
Code: Select all
/dev/sdb1     /media/sdb1    ext4         defaults                   0    0   

but substitute in your own values. /dev/sdb1 should be the location you retrieved earlier, /media/sdb1 would be the mount point, ext4 would be the filesystem type.
The device will automatically mount to the new location, so upon reboot any links to that partition should still work.

I get this:

fdisk: invalid option -- '1'
Usage:
fdisk [options] <disk> change partition table
fdisk [options] -1 <disk> list partition table(s)
fdisk -s <partition> give partition size(s) in blocks


Also, what is UUID?

I am using MATE

-l = dash, lowercase L. Not -1.
UUID is the ID number assigned to a specific device. It's a way to recognize a device by an assigned ID instead of its location (eg. which USB port).
The instructions still apply with MATE, but wherever you see gedit, type in pluma instead.

Open your file manager (caja) and find the device on the left pane. Click on the eject symbol, or right click and select "unmount".
There are other ways if this doesn't work for you, but this is the simplest.

Now when I use "sudo mount" command it says "fuse: failed to access mount point: no such file or directory" and when I use "sudo mkdir" command it says "mkdir: cannot create directory: file exists". Was I supposed to start from the beginning?

What if you do

sudo mount -a

You were, yes, but it mightn't make a difference here.
Please post the contents of your /etc/fstab file and the results of sudo fdisk -l (in code blocks, preferably)

I went and started from the beginning. It worked this time, but now when I type "sudo gedit /etc/fstab" or "sudo pluma /etc/fstab" it says "command not found"

Odd. I didn't pick you as the type to remove default packages :P
If that's what happened, open the terminal and type in:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install mate-text-editor

If it installs, you can now use the previous pluma command.
If it's already installed, my best bet is a typo in the command you entered before.

If it neither installs nor seems to be present, please copy and paste the terminal output exactly as it is. (just from "user@system:~$ sudo pluma fstab" onwards)

Do I have to start from the beginning again or just continue?

Just continue, no need to restart.
Though if you didn't remove any packages, pluma should be installed.
