I've done a fresh install of 14.04 after I seen that the online upgrade process from 13.10 left me with a lot of unsolvable bugs. The issue is that I cannot set manual mounting options from Discs on ext4 partition I used the same options as I did in past releases and worked(it also worked after I first did the upgrade). Gparted can mount it, but I need to set it to mount on boot.

This is the error I get when trying to mount from Discs:

Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sda8: Command-line `mount "/media/Tot-Ubuntu"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda8, missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

(udisks-error-quark, 0)

I have the following fields set: Mount on startup- checked Show in launcher- checked

Mounting options- nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gfx-show Mounting point- /media/Tot-Ubuntu Identified by- LABEL=Tot-Ubuntu Filesystem type- auto(tried setting it as ext4 also but no luck)

Tried mounting it with UUID but still no luck from Discs. Only my ntfs partitions can mount.

Solved it by modifying fstab. Probably a bug or something since I set the mounting options same as previous Ubuntu releases.


When this happened to me, doing dmesg | tail like suggested gave me this:

XFS (dm-4): unknown mount option [x-gvfs-show].

Which is what happens if you check "Show in user interface" from mount options. Unchecking it/removing the option fixed things for me.
