Problem with Krusader

Post by big_dog1968 »

When I am in Krusader, I cannot see or mount any of the ntfs partitions I created. I can see and mount them in konqueror (which I don't much like or use), but not in Krusader. Anybody know why?

You'll probably have to create the file (eg: sda6) using Krusader in root mode. F7 is the key to create a file. If that doesn't do the trick on its own then you'll have to manually add it to /etc/fstab; just ignore the UUID crap and use "/dev/sda6 /media/sda6 ntfs relatime 0 0" (those are zeros, not o's). If that *still* doesn't work, reboot and try again, and reload the page.

Also, using Krusader make sure it's configured to AutoMount Filesystems in the Advanced section.

I had already tried to go the fstab route, but it had not worked, and then I figured out the problem. You see I was trying to mount the partitions in the music, pictures...etc folders in the home directory. That way, when I run xp, they are there for me to use as well. What I did not know was that fstab is case sensitive when it comes to the folder names, and I had not capitalized the folder names for all the entries. As a result, it would not mount them no matter what. Once I capitalized the folder names, I was good to go.

Thanks for the help.

Obviously RC1 is out now, so please report bugs in the appropriate thread so Boo doesn't have to chase them down.

I must admit I wasn't sure where the discovered bugs should be reported because this is a forum for KDE CE & the other was an announcement. At least now its clear. Maybe next time put a mention in the announcement to inform where you want people to post bug reports. I don't see a lot of real serious problems being reported so its looking good.

Well the news is that RC1 will become the stable.
Yes there were some bugs found but I can not reproduce them or they are a "feature".

Also the only bugs that can be investigated are on systems with a clean install, no updates applied.

Anyway you may be happy to hear that Mint 6 KDE will be based on KDE 4.n and change its repos from Ubuntu to Kubuntu.

Oh and I am currently building the mint 5 miniKDE iso.

YIPEE!!!

When that happens I will hopefully finally be able to go back to KDE after having used GNOME for too long.

I eagerly await Mint KDE 6 (impatiently).

Does this mean that the RC1 that I downladed is identical to the Final or are there any changes on the final?

Personally, NO this does not make me very happy. I have ZERO plans to move to 4.x any time in the near or short term future. When 4.x is
at the level of 3.5.x AND they drop completely their "rethink" on how I should use MY PC I'll review it again. Till then KDE 3.5.x is where I will be staying. Quite honestly if I wanted KvistacrapDE on my pc I would have stayed with winslop.

I am sure this probably has a great deal of effect on your work, BUT..... The last round of Kubuntu fell on its face. Last release of Kubuntu didn't even boot for me on numerous machines, plus all the bugs found......This to me seems to be a bad idea.

Great, now lets fill up that 3GB+ of free space... :D

What a lot of people do not realize is that Kde 4.x.x will become the defacto standard in the future. Kde will finally drop support for anything that is not Kde 4.x.x and will stop development on earlier versions. Where does that leave the users who say they will not migrate to Kde 4? Well you won't be able to switch to another distro because Kde 4 will be adopted by all. Those who refuse to evolve will have to use another desktop manager. At the present time I'm not tickled with Kde 4 either but I will evolve when the time comes and I'm sure, just like the Mint KDE is now, we will have a first rate Kde 4 desktop manager. As far as switching to the Kubuntu repositories from the Ubuntu repositories, thats the way it should be. There won't be anymore problems with one than there is the other. Kubuntu is very stable and useable for a lot of people so the last release of Kubuntu did not fall on its face. Anyway I'm sure that Boo will not release junk. LinuxMint KDE CE will always be a first rate disrto and everyone should realize that now. Looking forward to the future! :mrgreen:

No please don't move to KDE 4.x. I have just been using the latest Kubuntu 8.10 & I absolutely hated using the KDE 4 desktop. I even set it to use traditional menu system but still I was unhappy as there are very few settings to allow you to customise menus, panels. or the desktop to something you feel comfortable with. I gave up in the end and installed Ubuntu 8.10 with gnome until Mint hopefully releases a version 6 Felicia using the KDE 3.xxx Desktop.

I am looking forward to KDE 4 under mint. Kubuntu set the bar low in my opinion, and I know the Mint team will do better, so I won't pre-judge it based on Kubuntu 8.1.

I have to agree 1000%.

To the KMint Team, from your own post, KvistacrapDE 4.x is giving you grief. Please DITCH IT!

I think the Distrowatch article linked in one of the other posts is 10000% SPOT ON. 4.x is NOT, WONT BE READY for real use any time soon.

I think theres a misunderstanding on your part of how the KDE "COMMUNITY EDITION" is created.

There is not some HUGE team of developers like canoncial has. This is Boo and a few others. They have to wait for t canoncial to release the *buntu version then re-work it to de-gnome it and get the superior KDE V3.5.x installed along with all the other enhancements.

I want there to be releases in a steady state, that does not mean every 6 months to the day, minute hour and second. Problems happen, they need to be resolved. If it turns into 8 months if it resolves the problems, so be it. Release WHEN READY!

I disagree with the current decision to go with KDE V4.x, so Elyssa will probably be my last KMint. I am looking at my options, but KDE V4.x is not on that list so any distro using or developing towards it, out.

Is he still reading this old thread and unaware that the Final KDE 5 was released back in September or is he just moaning about the time it takes for the KDE versions to be released following the main Gnome version?

I also disagree with KDE 4 but we might be surprised with what boo & the other devs come up with.

I am not sure, but I think theres a huge misunderstanding in how KMint is developed and released, and GMint as well.

Unfortunately Boo with out rewriting from scratch KDE can not "fix" KDE's fubar. I am just not into the whole concept of the way KDE.org wants to head.

One post in another thread already is showing that 4.x is providing headaches that don't sound to be worth the hassle that using 3.5.10 would allow us to keep on track.

If Boo wants to work with 4.x in the "LAB" for possible WAY FUTURE releases, great, but for the mainstream release for now 3.5.10+ is the way to go. When KDE gets their project back on track then we can take another look.

I actually am hoping and think that a fork of KDE is immenient as your either in the 4.x camp, or not, and I am not. Theres no middle ground on this one.
