    Re: HowTo: Automount NTFS Drives

    @Joeb454
    Hi I want to add something about NTFS configuration tool. There is a bug that NTFS Configuration Tool won't launch after installing it on ubuntu 10.10 maverick (I don't know this problem arises on all 10.10 but I had it and when googled about it there were other people facing it.) There is a bug report on launchpad about it on here.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ntfs-config/+bug/630348

    I am just copynig the important part from that bug report below in case someone needs it

    fdi/policy". Then ntfs-config will work. well it worked for me.
    Maybe you should add a note or at least the bug link about this bug because it very favourable to use NTFS Configuration Tool since it is simple and easy. Many people (mee included) would tend to automount NTFS drives with it. And when searched in google this topic is at top or among top results so it would help lots of people knowing that when reading how to automount even before they install ntfs-config.
    Thanks for this topic bytheway.

    Re: HowTo: Automount NTFS Drives

    Hi,

    I need help to create an "auto install" (at boot or after login) for the "ntfs-config" package everytime I start Ubuntu 11.04.

    I have install it on 11.04 and it works fine but I have to "activate" it everytime I start the pc and that is very annoying. So it would be perfect if someone could tell me how to do so that "install" itself during upstart or after login if that is easier?

    I'm a complete newbe so a step-by-step instruction would be much appreciated!

    After alot of searching on the net have I found this 'instructions' but as I wrote earlier I'm a newbe so I don't know if this is will work in Ubuntu 11.04 or at all?
    ======================
    sudo apt-get -y install ntfs-3g

    After doing this substitute ntfs-3g for ntfs in your fstab file.

    /dev/hda1 /media/windows ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

    You will now have read/write access when you login.

    ======================


    Many thanks for your help!

    Thumbs down Re: HowTo: Automount NTFS Drives

    I put my solution also.Maybe works for somebody.

    Story: I have a 400GB internal disk. In two partitions. Main and Data.
    In main, i have Win7 and ubuntu 10.10 installed.
    On other disk, "data", which is NTFS, i store all my downloads, and i have a common dropbox place, in which both Win7 and Ubuntu sync.

    Every reboot in Ubuntu, dropbox had problems, because my "data" disc wasnt auto-mounted!




    WHAT I DID:

    1) Got root acces with sudo -s ..

    2) typed: blkid
    and got result:

    Code:
    /dev/loop0: UUID="4c09fa42-ee6f-447e-8e48-0cc75c663a2b" TYPE="ext4" 
    /dev/sda1: LABEL="WinRE" UUID="FECA075BCA071017" TYPE="ntfs" 
    /dev/sda2: LABEL="System Reserved" UUID="52AA90E9AA90CB3D" TYPE="ntfs" 
    /dev/sda3: UUID="30B6986CB6983476" TYPE="ntfs" 
    /dev/sda5: LABEL="DATA" UUID="01CC4EC64E397020" TYPE="ntfs"
    and because when data is mounted, is at /media/DATA

    3) i edited: /etc/fstab
    and added the following line at bottom:
    /dev/sda5 /media/DATA ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0



    Info: To find all locale availiable on your ubuntu, type: locale -a

    It worked like charm! Hope somebody get's helped from this!
    Dont be responsible if doesnt work for anybody else.
    Dont even know if this can harm your system, so dont blame me!

    What a charm after trying the steps here my system (10.4) won't boot normally-it's boots to cli but I can get gui--it's just that now it wants to boot to the commandline and I still can't mount my usb ntfs drive.

    I give up!
