I just installed MINT and admit for an out oft he box experience it's biggest shortcoming for me was the work I had to invest to work out how, in /etc/fstab to auto mount all my local drives.
This should really be an option at install time as it's very hard to imagine not wanting them. Migrating from Windows 7 and well, of course they are all visible as drives there.
Now I there is some beauty to it in that I could see them in Nemo and Nemo does mount them when I go there. But alas my first issue was with dropbox as I keep my cloud mirrors on a separate drive and dropbox kept unlinking because the drive was not automounted. I forsee many similar problems as I get the system rolling and so automount them all now.
Failed to find a nice GUI for this too alas.
I love this idea. Promoted.
I think we are onto something here. Like the idea of dialogue box LexMK.
Automatically popping up with a dialogue asking you which partitions to mount is a _great_ idea, but not automatically mounting them for you. What if I didn't want them mounted?
sounds good, but questionable on security grounds. or better have ntfs-config tool and similar tool for mac, installed by default.
Another option would be to ask on first start after fresh install to auto mount not native to Linux.
I will have to check Bodhi, but I think E17 only displays drive icons and not load them. Keep a sing in NTFS partition, add it to clementine or any music player, reboot and then check if it plays that track or skips it.
As far as I know Jeff, he is not adding anything that is not neseccasry to function the distro itself. We had a dicussion to add startup sound and he stated the above.
I sign in as White Lotus.
It also has links to good startup sounds (some links me yours truely :) )
