    Mounting multile partitions at startup

    Hello, I am using gnome-session-properties to automatically mount Windows partitions at startup because I have soft links to often used files over there, but it will only let me keep one of them. Every time a create the entry the other disappears.
    I use
    Code:
    /usr/bin/udisks --mount /dev/disk/by-uuid/A*********
    /usr/bin/udisks --mount /dev/disk/by-uuid/0*********
    Is it because they are the same commands? I would think that since they are not 100% the same it would allow it. Can someone tell me how this works and/or if there's a work around?

    Why not do things properly and put an entry in /etc/fstab for each of the drives you want mounted.

    I'm all for setting it up in fstab but I'm confused by the original question. It's likely I'm reading it wrong/.

    Are you trying to add multiple lines to the same startup job?

    Why not create a separate job for each partition instead.

    Just add them to fstab or use a utility like mountmanager to do it for you.

    I did create multiple startup jobs and when I added the second one and restarted my computer it there would only one be one partition startup option like it deleted the first one.

    Re: Mounting multile partitions at startup

    Did you give each one a different name? Like MountC and MountD or did you have the same name?

    Well I do something like this

    Code:
    ln  -s /media/Windowspartition1/users/me/Downloads /home/me/Downloads (I name it "downloads1"
    ln -s /media/Windowspartition2/Downloads /home/me/Downloads (I name it downloads 2 etc...)
    and I do the same for Documents and Pictures etc...

    Yes I named one Windows Mount 1 and Windows Mount 2. At first I thought because they were similar in name that it didn't work that way, but I changed one name to just "1" and the other to just "2" and it still deleted one of them.
