Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have just upgraded to 12.10 and found that my 'nouser' partition in fstab is mounted without asking any permissions in nautilus. I am logged in as a normal user.

I was using ubuntu 12.04 and had no problems with this. When I try to mount this partition, It says only root can mount and I was happy with that, but now in 12.10 (nautilus 3.4 and 3.6), it mounts automatically.

This is my entry in fstab :

/dev/sdb9   /media/personal  ntfs  nouser,noauto,async,dirsync,rw,exec

I want that partition protected and mounted only with root permission. Please help me..
