Download to second drive QbitTorrent

Post by Walltumbler » Sat Nov 10, 2018 3:58 pm

Hello, I am trying to get QbitTorrent to download files to the second drive in my laptop. When ever I start up linux the file manager sees the drive and I have to click it to mount it. Its a Windows file system drive.. and I want to keep it that way. Is there any way to do this? QbitTorrent does not even see the drives when it opens the window to chose the file directory.

Thanks for the help!

Hi Walltumbler,

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

Read this post for automatically mounting drives.

Hey thanks for responding. I have no problem clicking the drives to mount them. Does not bother me at all. I just want my linux software to see those drives as places to download and retrieve files from.

Hi Walltumbler,

You are welcome...

If you have a drive's partition that you usually want available other than your boot drive, internal (fixed) or removable, then using the "disks" application is a great method and you will not have to remember to manually mount the drive's partition(s) for them to be available for applications.

FYI: I do not see anything wrong with the results of the "inxi -Fxzd" console terminal command, so that is a good thing. But, you have a dual video system, so you would probably have better video performance using the nVidia video card over the Intel video card.

NVIDIA: how to install the latest video card drivers - Easy Linux tips project
https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/12

To install this using the PPA method, open a console terminal, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one: Click "Select All" above command, right click the highlighted command, select Copy (or Ctrl+Insert), click in the console terminal window, and right click paste ("Shift+Insert" or "Ctrl+Shift+v"), repeat for each command.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install nvidia-410
Or

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install nvidia-390
Hope this helps ...

i wouldn't automount windows drives if you have an OS on it. if it's just a storage ntfs i'd be more inclined to but even so i stopped automount for windows filesystem

if you want to, the easiest way to automount is open Disks click on your ntfs partition or drive click the small icon gear (Aditional partition options) select Edit mount options, turn OFF user session defaults, and depending on how you want it mounted usually you shouldn't need to touch anything else. but if you want it mounted the best choices are the UUID option or LABEL option
