    access other drives or partitions

    I am just trying out Kubuntu 9.10 for the first time. (Dual boot with XP)
    Unlike Ubuntu I get no access to my other drives on the computer.
    Does anyone know how I can resolve this problem I would like to get into my other drives for information that is stored there

    Thanks

    Did you change your existing Ubuntu to Kubuntu or install Kubuntu fresh?
    If you just applied KDE over your existing Ubuntu install then the other drives should still be mounted as per usual, they may just not be appearing like you are used to.
    Try typing
    Code:
    mount
    into a terminal and see if the ntfs volumes are mounted. You should then be able to access them by their mountpoint listed in the output of the command.
    (e.g. /media/XXXXX or /mount/XXXXX)

    Re: access other drives or partitions

    When you open up Dolphin, are there no drives listed on the left side?

    Also, there is a plugged in devices applet in the panel, if you click on that, does that list anything?
