Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

With the drive plugged in, run the following command and post the output.

Looks like I spoke too soon. The USB devices (plus my Windows partition, which is written into fstab) are recognized by the system (confirmed by dmesg) and appear in "Computer", but are not mounted until I open System>Preferences>Removable Drives and Media. I don't have to adjust anything in the applet, just open it. Every session. Isn't that strange? I'm going to start a new thread to try to find the answer to this.
Distribution: Mageia 5, Debian Stretch & Funtoo Linux
I don't have nothing but /, swap & dvd drive listed in my fstab and everytime I load my usb external hard drive, I see it using a filemanager. If I click on it, it opens a window to display the contents.
I'm using openbox wm, so I guess that is why no icon pops up on the desktop, there aren't any icons on desktop.
I believe gnome-volume-manager is giving it access.
