By default Ubuntu doesn't mount internal NTFS hard drives automatically. A fstab solution not working properly, because of conflicts with the "intelligent" mount system. If I add my hd in fstab and reboot - it will be mounted. But if I go to nautilus, open places panel and click eject button (unmount) and than click on hd again to mount it, I will get an error.
In 9.04 to solve this problem you need to modify hal rules in
/etc/hal/... preferences.fdi in my case I modified it for only one drive.
<device> − <match key="storage.hotpluggable" bool="false"> − <match key="storage.removable" bool="false"> <merge key="storage.automount_enabled_hint" type="bool">false</merge> − <match key="storage.model" string="ST3250310NS"> <merge key="storage.automount_enabled_hint" type="bool">true</merge> </match> </match> </match> </device>
But this is not working in 9.10 - devs removed this function from hal to devkit-disk or udev? I don't know. Could you please tell me where automount rules are stored in 9.10? And how to create new rules, and what program controls automount in 9.10?
