sudo blkid /dev/sda1: UUID="982C95762C954FDC" TYPE="ntfs" /dev/sda5: LABEL="Dokumenti" UUID="1790F4FC14591931" TYPE="ntfs" /dev/sda6: UUID="d99a94b7-b239-4da4-a3c6-b5ec5d048642" TYPE="swap" /dev/sda7: UUID="a7f791b5-6355-49ea-bd23-559ea10f3073" TYPE="swap" /dev/sda8: UUID="b570b724-b7f6-4f6b-b392-f7cac8fb11dd" TYPE="ext4" /dev/sda9: UUID="e1887b60-251b-40cd-b193-6a668086a284" TYPE="swap" Can see it now, it's sd5, but it is not listed in nautilus – Alen May 1 '12 at 8:05
They should be NTFS, right (because windows can't see EXT4 by defauly) open syanptic and search for ntfs. then do a reinstall some of those packages(May be everything) I think doing a complete removal and reinstalling is the best, are you using WUBI? – Prasad RD May 1 '12 at 13:06

As you know that it's partition sda5 you can add it to fstab manually and it will be mounted on startup automatically.

don't need to mount it automatically, I just want to see it in nautilus – Alen May 1 '12 at 9:37
and also can't access it because I don't see it. anyone pls help – Alen May 1 '12 at 9:57
if you add it to fstab and add the user and noauto option it should look like you want it to be. You can mount it directly from nautilus then. – sulaweyo May 1 '12 at 10:57
ok, can you explain me how to do it – Alen May 1 '12 at 12:09
just add the following line: UUID=1790F4FC14591931 /your/mount/point ntfs-3g noauto,user 0 0 (the mount point has to exist and must be accessible by you, copied the UUID from your output - you can use /dev/sda5 as well) – sulaweyo May 1 '12 at 12:11
