Auto Mount USB Sticks and Open File Manager to Location
« on: January 16, 2010, 02:40:38 PM »
How would I go about configuring TC to auto mount USB sticks that are inserted then open a file manager (pcmanfm) to that location? I saw a thread on removing noauto from rebuildfstab, which I guess would take care of the first step (haven't tested it yet). What about the file manager part?

Thanks!

You misunderstand the meaning of noauto.
Noauto means do not mount on a 'mount -a' command.
It has nothing to do with automounting.

The full solution requires removing noauto then adding mount -a at the end of rebuildfstab: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=1889.0

But you are right in that I don't think it has anything to do with plugging in devices after the system has booted.
