Previously I’d posted on auto-mounting partitions at startup using pysdm. This post shows how you can do so by making use of mount command.
Below steps require root priviliges, so switch to root or prefix sudo to the commands.
For mounting NTFS drives with read and write support, open the terminal and type
<span style="text-decoration: line-through;">mount -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222 /dev/device_name /where_you_want_to_mount</span>
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/device_name /where_you_want_to_mount/
Editor’s note: ntfs has been superseded by ntfs-3g and will mount with read/write privileges.
