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

One of those things that I like in Ubuntu 12.10, is that for some reason my ntfs partition is automatically mounted on boot, without having to use some application like ntfs-config.

However, it's not mounted "when I need", because (for example), I have a symbolic link of my Dropbox folder (which is originally placed in that ntfs partition). Therefore, when I login, the Dropbox is started first than the ntfs filesystem is mounted, and I find that error that the Dropbox folder is not found. If I exit dropbox and start again, it works fine then (because the filesystem is mounted by then).

How can I do to prevent this?

had the same problem. Ubuntu loads applications in alphabetical order, so changing the name in Startup will solve your problem. Hope it helps you.

Changing the name of what to what? The auto-mount is not an application, therefore is not in startup applications. –  Tiago Mar 17 '13 at 15:36
