    Partition Folders on Boot

    Ubuntu 18:04 LTS

    Folks, system working fine but for some reason I have four folders that appear when started showing contents of different partitions.

    None of the folders appear in fstab or mtab so I am not sure where they are being produced from.

    From my file manager I get the following;

    /dev/dm-1
    /dev/dm-2
    /dev/sda3
    /dev/sda6
    It is a tri-boot system with Ubuntu my main system on /dev/sda5
    Windows10 on /dev/sda3
    Fedora on a LVM system on /dev/sda7 (Think that is dm-1 and dm-2)

    /dev/sda6 I am not sure of, it contains boot and efi files but my efi partition is actually /dev/sda1

    My question really is; where might these folders be being created?

    when you type df -Th do they show in the list? If not, then they aren't mounted and whatever GUI is showing them is at fault.

    Very likely it's Fedora's /boot partition.

    Yes, could be, none if the drives are issues, just curiosity as I know automounts are generally in fstab or mtab

    No, they don't show with that command, only sda1 and sda5 (efi partition and Ubuntu system) are mounted prefixed by /dev. Loads of loops and a few tmpfs show and I know of them.

    Thanks for info TheFu - if I right click mouse over icon in task bar I can unlock from launcher so that is where they are being launched from. Not sure what config file controls that.
