I have lubuntu 16.04 and windows vista installed in dual-boot.

I have recently created a new ext4 partition and I had a concern with moving files to trash. I have heard from someone from this forum that my fstab file was not "valid". I really don't know what this means.

Here is my fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=a12e62f7-8eaa-4aba-8c59-7fbf4ce9148c /               ext4        errors=remount-ro 0       1
# swap was on /dev/sda6 during installation
UUID=90e31a06-2ba1-4119-b640-14f900268f84 none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/disk/by-uuid/07D8-0713 /mnt/07D8-0713 auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,noauto 0 0
/dev/disk/by-uuid/E49E631C9E62E690 /mnt/E49E631C9E62E690 auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,noauto 0 0
/dev/disk/by-uuid/66D25FBFD25F9263 /mnt/66D25FBFD25F9263 auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,noauto 0 0

I have absolutely no idea about what I may change on my stab file to make it "valid".

Could you please help me?

  • seems valid to me, if it works and you have access to all your partitions then it's valid ;) – Ravexina Jun 15 '17 at 19:59

    Try running sudo mount -a and see if the OS complains. If it doesn't, then it's valid. – Andrew Eisenberg Jun 15 '17 at 20:11
  • OK thank you. I tried sudo mount -a and nothing happened. Everything works fine except that I can not move files to trash, already posted here[askubuntu.com/questions/921877/… – Carlo Jun 15 '17 at 20:19
