I'd like to ask you about Banshee. I have imported media from my Windows partition, renamed it and so on, but after restarting my laptop and running Banshee again I can't play my track because "File not found". What's more: I do import media all over again, it "visually" doesn't change anything (still the same number of tracks), but all of a sudden it starts working. Is there a way to fix it? I gotta say that importing media every time is quiet annoying


You need to mount the Windows drive before starting Banshee and all your media will show, you can do this by opening the drive in the your files application first or use Disks to set it to auto mount at boot.

Open Disks from the Dash (top left) and choose your drive on the left. Now click the little three cogs icon under the partition information enter image description here, and choose Edit Mount Options.

Turn off Automatic Mount options and check Mount at Startup

enter image description here

Now when you boot the drive will be mounted automatically and all your content will show in Banshee.

    Thank you very much! I'm a new Linux user, so I absolutely forgot about mounting partition manually. – Fajeczny Mar 12 '16 at 12:04
