How to configure the default automount location?

I would like ask an important question regarding Ubuntu 12.10 installation on my laptop T500 ... those partitions which are not explicitly defined in fstab gets mounted to /media/<username>/<label>.

Is this a bug or a change made my developers.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@january the mount point is not /media but /media/<username>/<xxx>. – joe1983 Oct 15 '12 at 12:01

The /media directory for temporary mount points has been here already for a while when it came to USB sticks and other removable media. I assume that this is just extending the same logic: mount the available resources to /media/xxxx, unless otherwise specified.

This is an intentional change made by Ubuntu developers. It's not a bug, /media/<username>/<label> is a correct location for 12.10. Earlier Ubuntu versions used /media/<label>.
