Automount gui?

Postby Potajito on Sat Jul 11, 2009 8:07 pm

Hi, I want to mount my ntfs hard drives automatically everytime I start Mint, and if possible, with a gui, can it be done? I've saw some how to's to auto mount it using the terminal, but i feel more comfortable with a gui :P

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

As far as I know there isn't a GUI that will accomplish this task. I've always use the terminal and gedit myself.
