As what I hope will be a final issue, I'd like to ask the possibility of getting symlinks that point to connected USB drives to appear in /home/tc. What I mean is that, when someone brings a USB drive and plugs it in, the OS finds and assigns it a mount point, and the drive can then be mounted by clicking on the relevant entry in the mnttool menu. That's all working fine and dandy.
In legacy Linux fashion, those mounts points get created under /mnt. The problem is, my users are probably going to have problems finding /mnt and are thus liable to be unable to use their flash drives. Besides, I'd rather not have them rooting around the file system trying to find the drive anyway.
What I thought of as a possible solution is for a symlink to appear in /home/tc once a portable drive is mounted. That would be preferable because I've already got pcmanfm in wbar and it opens in /home/tc when clicked. If a symlink to, say, /mnt/sdb1 were to appear there when /dev/sdb1 gets mounted, I think it would be much less confusing to my users.
So can anyone suggest a way to get the system to create symlinks in /home/tc when external storage gets mounted using mnttool?
