Is there a program to mount all of my drives automatically?


Thanks gold_finger for the reply,

In the path you have mentioned have found an option "Enable automatic mounting of removable media" which was disabled. Enabled it and also enabled other two options to "mount all removable media at login" and "automatically mount removable media when attached" and another one kept disabled to automatically mount only those removable medias which were mounted manually before. Also checked all "disconnected devices" to "Automount on attach".

Unfortunately still my flash drives are not mounting automatically.

For bluetooth I think I should go to hardware service centre. May be some hardware switch has been turned off inside. But still any other way to check for it will be helpful.

I have checked for all setting option of Dolphin. Can't understand why external drives are not showing up?

Sometimes when I restart my computer, my drives will mount but sometimes they won't (like right now when I'm typing this question out).

Is there an easy way, like a program that can mount them for me? Going in the console, making folders, etc, is NOT what I want. I like how Windows does it where they always mount the drives no matter what.

If there isn't a program how else can I easily mount all drives?

This works in 12.10 - 16.10

Type Disks in Dash, and you will get:

Click on the little gears icon, to get the sub menu, and choose Edit Mount Options. After that you will see:

Change the Automatic Mount Options to ON. do that to all the drives that you need mounted on start-up.

Note: Be careful with what you modify, it may cause the system not to work properly.

You're welcome. No problem, I understand. With the drives connected you want to mount, run the following command in Terminal to list them and locate the Device Identifier for each device (i.e disk1, disk2, etc.):

diskutil list

You'll see a list of drives similar to this:

In the example above disk0 is the internal boot drive, disk1 and disk2 the connected external drives.

Once you have the Device Identifier for each drive (i.e disk1, disk2, disk3, disk4) you can try this simple Automator workflow/application/etc using a Run AppleScript action:

on run {input, parameters}

set diskutil to "usr/sbin/diskutil"

do shell script diskutil & " mountDisk disk1 > /dev/null 2>&1 &"

do shell script diskutil & " mountDisk disk2 > /dev/null 2>&1 &"

do shell script diskutil & " mountDisk disk3 > /dev/null 2>&1 &"

do shell script diskutil & " mountDisk disk4 > /dev/null 2>&1 &"

return input

How do I find (in Python 3.x) the default location where flash drives automatically mount when plugged in on a computer that I happen to be using at the time? (It could be any of various non-specific Linux distributions and older/new versions. Depending on which one it is, it may mount at such locations as /media/driveLabel, /media/userName/driveLabel, /mnt/driveLabel, etc.)

I was content just assuming /media/driveLabel until Ubuntu updated its default mount location to include the username (so, now I can't use a static location for bookmarked file settings of a portable app I made across my computers, since I use multiple usernames). So, the paths for the bookmarked files need to be updated every time I use a new computer or user. Note that files on the hard drives are also bookmarked (so, those don't need to be changed; they're set not to load if you're not on the right computer for them).

Anyway, now I'm not content just going with /media mounts, if there's a...

If you are using dual booting (windows 7 and ubuntu 12.04) on your PC/Laptop and want to mount automatically Windows NTFS partitions in Ubuntu. this tutorial is going to show you how Mount Automatically NTFS Drive in Ubuntu 12.04. Now Ubuntu comes with support for NTFS partitions right out of the box. No need to install third party apps to make this work as you would previously.

It can be partitions on internal/external IDE, SCSI drives, or thumb USB drives. Wherever the partition lives, you should be able to auto mount it in Ubuntu. This will allow you access to data on the drive from Ubuntu without re-partitioning it.

Need to Know your Ubuntu does not automount the NTFS partition by default. Everytime you need to access the NTFS partition, you have to first go to your Nautilus and click on the NTFS drive (and enter your password) to mount it before you can access it.

Hard Disks

We'll start with the physical drives attached to your system.

As we saw in a previous article Can I reassign my drive letters? you can, using the system drive management tool, assign the letters of your choice to your drives, rather than accepting the Windows default. While I don't recommend renaming "C:", the default Windows install drive, pretty much any other drive can be assigned any letter that isn't already in use.

Or none at all.

But at least one of your drives, probably your C:, or Windows installation drive, needs to be NTFS format.

Following the instructions in that article:

Right click on My Computer and click on Manage to bring up the Computer Management Dialog

click on Disk Management, to open up the Disk Management Dialog

Right click on one of the drives that is not your Windows install drive, and then click on Change Drive Letter and Paths...

Note for Ubuntu Server 11.10: This script fails on Ubuntu Server 11.10 due to the obsolete vol_id command. vol_id has been superseded by blkid. To fix the script, replace "vol_id" by "blkid -o udev" in the script.

I've been banging my head around this for a while now, and I think I've found a working solution. This is developed and tested on a Debian-based system, so it should work on Ubuntu. I'll point out the assumptions it makes so it can be adapted to other systems as well.

It will automatically mount USB drives on plugin, and shouldn't take much to adapt for Firewire. It uses UDEV, so no monkeying with HAL/DeviceKit/GNOME-Anything. It automagically creates a /media/LABEL directory to mount the device to. However, it may interfere with other automounters; I can't test for that. I expect that, with Gnome-VFS active, both may try to do the mount ... if Gnome-VFS fails the mount, it might not configure a desktop icon. Unmounting from Gnome should be...

There are broadly two aproaches -

Per-user mounting does not require root access, it's just automating the desktop interface. Systemwide mounts (/etc/fstab) can allow access from before login, and are therefore much more suitable for access through a network, or by system services.

Commands should be entered on a terminal (Type terminal in the program launcher of recent unity based Ubuntu releases, or select Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal from the menus on older releases).


This is the modern replacement for gnome-mount. It's not gnome specific.

When you mount a disc normally with the file browser (nautilus etc) it mounts disks by interacting with udisks behind the scenes.

You can do the same thing on the command line with the udisks tool. For example:

/usr/bin/udisks --mount /dev/sdb1

The bit after --mount is the device name of the partition you want to mount. (/dev/something). The command will mount /dev/sdb1...

Everyone who had to reinstall their OS in the past (and if you run Windows, you’ve done this plenty of times) knows that the biggest pain is to reinstall all the kits and drivers again. And as you know, there are lots of drivers you need to install on your computer or laptop. From Video Card, to motherboard to Chipset and all those in between.

How to Update Drivers Automatically

It may not be a particularly hard task to do, but it’s pretty time consuming. Going after each driver, downloading and installing, it takes ages. But fear not, there are ways to install drivers with much more ease, although, some might argue that the old fashioned way is still the best there is. Also, every manufacturer encourages you to download and install the latest driver for their product and in itself complicates your life even more.

Always searching for driver updates on numerous websites. But fear not, there are a few ways to update your drivers with much more ease and...

I am maintaining a file server running Ubuntu 12.04 in my company and was faced with the problem how to backup my system easily and on a low cost. As we have a huge amount of data and a rather slow internet connection have I made the decision to backup onto external hard drives which we will rotate frequently. In the end USB drives are still the cheapest option to backup your data… ;).

This blog post is though not about backing up your data but rather how to mount a USB drive automatically when connected to a server and access it with its label. This helped me to have a specific mount point for backup hard discs but won’t interfere if anyone else needs to connect another USB drive to the server. I am sure you might have different use cases for such feature as well. I have tested following configuration on a Ubuntu Server 12.04 but it should run on other Debian based operating systems as well.

OK this said let’s get started with the configuration then.

Mounting a shared drive in Ubuntu can be quite a confusing process. With many of us having multiple machines and NAS drives at home, auto mounting network locations is becoming a very common requirement in most homes and offices. I have a NAS drive at home that I use for multimedia and I make Ubuntu auto mount the NAS as soon as I log on. Here’s how I do it:

First of all you need to run this command in terminal:

sudo apt-get install gvfs-bin

Then, once the application is installed you need to paste the text below into a text editor window and then save it as in your home folder. The file name needs to be exactly the same, it’s case sensitive and requires the dot at the start of the name.

gvfs-mount smb://%Path_to_share%

NOTE: Where “%path_to_share%” is listed this will be replaced with the actual share path. So, if there is a share called ‘share’ on computer01 then the actual command would be gvfs-mount...
