Ok, thanks I'll try that.I was copying the partitions from a live USB linux after. The partitions were mounted under /media/origin and /media/destination. [by username]

However GParted detects them. The filesystems were ext4 and ntfs(old windows partition). They used to be mounted at /media/part1 for the ext4 and /media/ntfs. Last night after reading through the man pages for mount and fs, I put together this solution:
create the missing directories in the /media dir and then type: sudo mount /dev/sda1 ext4..etc. Is this the way to fix the problem?
Does anyone know how udisks2 manages partitions? The recent upgrade from udisks to udisks2, and the subsequent change in mount points from /media to /media/$USER, ended up causing too many problems with applications installed in partitions which are apparently mounted by udisks2.
I'm running xubuntu 12.10. My PC has a few Windows partitions. When I log in, I see the Windows partitions in the top-left of my desktop. "OS", "DATA", and "Recovery". When I double-click on the icons, it mounts the partition (/media/sal/DATA, etc.) So all of that works fine.
