    automatically mount windows partition in Hardy Heron

    Hardy Heron has recognised two of my Windows ntfs partitions and listed them in 'Places'. Unlike Gutsy Gibbon however, it doesn't mount them automatically on logon.
    Is there a simple configuration setting that will mount one of these windows partitions on logon?

    apt-get install ntfs-config, then run Applications -> System Tools -> NTFS Configuration Utility

    Alternatively you could add a line similar to "/dev/XXX /media/windows ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0" to /etc/fstab. The aforementioned tool does that (and a few other things) for you.

    Thanks. Multe gratias.

    I installed ntfs-config which on launch offered to automatically mount all the drives it found.

    just a quick note for 9.04 jaunty users:

    this still works (ntfs-config) however it has moved to system->administration->ntfs configuration tool
