I want my Kubuntu to auto mount my hard disks at login without the need for password. I tried it through System settings -> removable media and checked "Enable automount removable media". But at the moment i log in Kdesudo asks for password for all the hard drive at once.

I want it without any password. How can i do that ?

Check out PySDM.

PySDM is a Storage Device Manager that allows full customization of hard disk mountpoints without manually access to fstab. It also allows the creation of udev rules for dynamic configuration of storage devices. alt text

The following worked for me to mount an NTFS driver under Kubuntu. It was a GUID partitioned multi TB drive, so some standard tools like fdisk did not like it, but this worked. :)

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda4 /mnt/bigboy
