How to automount NTFS partitions under Flux?

Postby Imhoteps » Sun Sep 25, 2011 7:05 am

Isadora Flux dualbooted with Windows XP (partitioned to C:\ and D:\).

I`ve resized Windows data partition (D:\) yesterday, using Easeus partition master app for Windows. Everything went fine except one thing - when I boot into Fluxbox, system doesn`t mount Windows disks automatically (If I recall correctly, this option was enabled in Flux by default, so I could see both Windows partitions in File Manager`s dialog window). Now I have to open Disk Utility and mount Win disks inthere, and yes - I can access them, going into /media subfolder, but they don`t appear in left pane of Mint`s File Manager.

Spam here, please, if anyone has any ideas ;)

Thanks in advance!

Well here is how I do it.. I created folder in /mnt dir like ---- /mnt/Storage-ntfs Then as root I added this to
/etc/fstab. /dev/sda2 /mnt/Storage-ntfs ntfs auto,users,exec,umask=000 0 0. /dev/sda2 being the ntfs partition I wanted to automount. then rebooted. Good Luck
