Re: automount under gnome 3


i have both ntfs and ext3/4 drives that i plug in via usb. in any case the ntfs packages you list are installed.

i am not familiar with disk-manager and will try that now. i was expecting that if gnome 3.x is attempting to integrate/simplify/control numerous pieces that it would 'just work' without the need of installing additional packages as a work around.

anyway, thanks very much for your suggestion.

Sounds like an issue I faced abit back when moving from stable to
testing, but in an openbox installation not gnome 3.2 so check before
you apply.
First check if you have ntfs-config ntfs-3g:
dpkg -l ntfs-config
dpkg -l ntfs-3g
if not install both.

Then run: sudo ntfs-config
Install disk-manager and run: sudo disk-manager
Finally reboot.

I am giving you the packages in this order cause this is how it worked
for me. Sorry for the top post but I am writing from office box ie
browser issue.
