I have a desktop machine running Ubuntu for a few years.
I needed more space for my files and for that purpose I purchased and installed a brand new HDD in it.
Everything is working great. The only issue is that the HDD is not mounting when the computer boots.
In order to my applications to find the files in the new HDD I have to click on the icon of the new HDD to cause it to mount. I have been clicking on that thing for a long time because I can't figure out how to manage
I followed the instructions from the following link: Auto mount a drive that located on Ubuntu and auto share that drive for Window
When I follow the instruction it does not seem to mount the HDD in the same place as if I had clicked on the icon of the HDD in Nautilus and Unity.
This is what I put on my
/dev/sdb1 /media/jean/2 ext4 users,user 0 0
Note that my user name account is
jean. I wrote on
fstab what I believe should work to mount the HD on boot and allow access to the files and folders within that hard drive by my applications. The applications do not seem to be able to handle the files and folders. Do I need to set permissions? Is the path correct? What does
users,user 0 0 means?
That application "Disks" have no use either! Could not make it happen.
