I am on UBUNTU 13.10, and use an NTFS partition as storage.
Typically, I mount it by clicking on the name of the partition in Nautilus. I wished to mount it automatically at startup, so I tried:
- From disks, edit mount options.., mount at startup (tested with "show user interface" off and on)
from startup applications, creating an item
/usr/bin/udisks --mount /dev/disk/by-uuid/500D4BE5454B55ED
In all cases, the partition shows as already mounted and can be normally accessed in nautilus. But at least some applications don't seem to see all the files inside. For instance, Virtualbox will not find my virtual machines, lightzone shows the label of the partition in media, but it will only show no files upon selecting it.
Synapse as well seems to be unable to search, but I might have done some mistake in configdb, so I will open a separate question about it if I still have problems once I solve this.
