When I plug in my Seagate External HDD Linux tells me "you can't mount /dev/sdg1 only root can do that." So I open xterm and type in:
and it mounts fine. Similarly, when I want to remove the drive I type:
sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sdg1 /media/Seagate
Although it takes 2 or three tries in 'Computer' to "safely remove drive" before the drive powers down and the power light goes out.
glenn@design:~$ sudo umount /dev/sdg1
Is there any way I can get around having to manually mount the drive when I plug it in? Its already in fstab:
