Finding other OS partitions on XFCE

Postby glas » Tue Apr 13, 2010 9:39 am

Unlike most open source desktops I'm used to (KDE, Gnome), there doesn't seem to be anyway to mount or view other OS partitions in Mint XFCE.

Nothing inn Thunar, nothing in /mnt, nothing in /media, no trace that there exists any thing other than / and /home partitions.

I'm missing two ext3 partitions and 1 ntfs (or fat32, can't remember) partition.

Any ideas where I can find them?

You can find them by running this command in a terminal
(That's a lower case "L" not a "1") :wink:

Code: Select all

sudo fdisk -l

And then auto mount them by using the methodology described in Fred's tutorial
