Other system partitions in my xubuntu


What tool/file is responsible in ubuntu/xubuntu for mounting other disk partitions (windows partition in my case) ?

On my xubuntu desktop I see icon representing windows partition on my disk (it stopped working btw.) but I see no entry in /etc/fstab.

My guess is that ubuntu/xubuntu has some auto-magical tool to do it ?

Thunar>Volume Management

Though I don't run Xubuntu. I'd look in there.

You might have to manually edit /etc/fstab after making a backup of the original first. Then use

Code:
sudo blkid
and

Code:
sudo fdisk -l
To find the mountpoints .

Though I think systemd now handles that without manual editing anymore. Like I said. I don't use Xubuntu 14.04.

The Ubuntus usually show other partitions under the /media directory by a uuid. You should be able to access them from the file manager.

Hi, thanks for answers.

Ya, rokytnji u might be right about systemd. It pssibly uses /usr/bin/udisks.
Now, question is where is configuration files for that ?
