View Full Version : [xubuntu] Xubuntu 12.04 and 13.04 mount media at different points. Why?

I've been using Voyager Linux (based on xubuntu 12.04)
it mounts my external drive at /media/DriveA for example
I've loaded Xubuntu 13.04 onto another partition and it mounts them to /media/myusername/DriveA

This is a problem because I copied my XBMC settings over from my 12.04 install and it needs to have things mounted the same way.

Is this a quirk of Voyager? What's a good way to resolve this?

There was a change in Ubuntu between those releases with respect to the location. Have a read of this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2152773) for more information. Post #2 links to another thread that contains some workarounds to get the behviour back to the way you are used to.
