    Re: HowTo: Automount NTFS Drives

    Dude thanks helping but that did not work
    here is what it says
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda6 /media
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda6,
    missing codepage or helper program, or other error
    In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
    dmesg | tail or so
    presently just need files that are on the partition, actually i have kubuntu installed on it. Kubuntu now boots into BusyBox which i don't know how to use.
    Now the partition dosent mount at all... i think it is because it wasnt unmounted properly...
    Thanks for helping

    Re: HowTo: Automount NTFS Drives

    Is the NTFS partition a Windows installation? If so, try booting into that, defrag & clean shutdown, see if that makes a difference.

    Unfortunately, that's the only thing I can think of currently

    What I meant was, what is the NTFS partition for? Is it simply a storage partition, or does the NTFS partition have Windows installed on it?

    Honestly, I like this solution better. Worked well for me without the need to install anything

    In Ubuntu 10.10 the commands given are not supported:

    sudo aptitude update
    sudo aptitude install ntfs-config

    So instead type these commands:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ntfs-config

    And the installed software will be available under the tabs System > Administration > NTFS Configuration Tool

    Rest of the process goes as is stated above

    Re: HowTo: Automount NTFS Drives

    Thanks. I updated the first post to reflect that. It's also worth noting that you could also run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install aptitude
    which would then make the initial post valid still

    Re: HowTo: Automount NTFS Drives

    Hi, I've read through a lot of the posts above but can't automount. sudo fdisk -l shows sdb1, there is a directory for it in media/usb, I have the latest ntfs-3g application, and can't figure out how to see my external hard drive icon on the desktop and access the files in it. I am using an Acer Aspire One with 10.10 netbook remix OS. The drive is immediately mounted and pops up on the desktop on my other computer with 10.04.

    Does anything look wrong with the output below?



    richard@richard-AO532h:~$ sudo cat /etc/fstab
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
    # for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
    # devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    #
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
    /dev/sdb1 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
    # swap was on /dev/sdb5 during installation
    UUID=a4a5f639-e587-4300-8afb-4ea4e9ffc30a none swap sw 0 0
