I added a ntfs network share to fstab and it automounts correctly and shows the link in file manager.
Is it possibile (perhaps with some fstab parameter) to disable mount at boot but still have its link in file manager?
For example like some windows partition I see in Devices but are not mounted until I click them (however they are automatically found without being in fstab).
I am attempting to map my work remote drives to my laptop so I can access them as I move about the building. But here is the problem...
I need to mount and unmount these drives as I come and go from work because they are not accessible outside the building. My idea is to put them all in fstab and mount/umount them from the gui.
I always mounted my floppy, optical discs, then USB drives to BSD-type mount points. In the last few years I learned you can set mount points in fstab,but is there any way to get KDE (3/TDE and/or 4) to auto-mount devices according to fstab?
i have a growing number of removable drives and i like to make mountpoints for them in mnt/ ,
for example this drive is in fstab
UUID=FAB67651B6760DFF /mnt/thevault ntfs-3g defaults,noauto,rw,noatime 0 0
but im not sure how to mount it manually when accessing machine through ssh,
I'm currently running Mint 17. To access my employers Windows file server I mount the file system, using cifs, to the /media directory. Sudo permissions have been passed to me which allows me to run mount/umount commands.
The problem I'm running into is that the cifs shares are not unmounting on system logout. This is problematic, for two reasons.
