View Full Version : [SOLVED] Mount without password (NTFS partition)

July 2nd, 2010, 06:30 AM
Hi all,

I have my NTFS partition set to automatically mount in my Kubuntu Lucid installation, but it always prompts me for a ksudo password when I boot before it mounts. Is there any way of getting it to mount without a password? As it is, I need to copy desktop wallpaper images and save torrents to my ext4 or the password prompt makes a mess of everything when I boot up.

You can also remove the password of the user account, or?

You might want to post the output of the following commands so everyone can see how things are configured:

sudo blkid -c /dev/null
cat /etc/fstabIf you used some GUI app to automount like mountmanager, Pysdm, or others it's likely that it discombobulated things.

I tried entering a NULL password for my login to see if that would help, but it only works with KWallet, Kubuntu doesn't allow you to have a NULL login password. Anyway adding it to fstab worked, if only the KDE device manager worked as well!
