Kubuntu10.04, partition access permissions
Every time I boot my Kubuntu, I get a dialog box, actually like 9 of them, each ask me for my password. The box is titled with "KDE Sudo"

I am sure that these are for mounting of my 9 (approx) other partitions. How can I have full permissions to each partition, having them automatically mount at each booting?

This will teach me a lot, but I still need step-by-step instructions.
Thank you, community.

do you want to mount the patitions for you other distributions automatically or not at all?

Could you please post the /etc/fstab file of your Kubuntu?

"KDE sudo" dialog box also display cammand to execute. Can you write these commands?

Marc, yes I dont mind mounting partitions with other OS's. There are actually 11 dialog pop ups...

Also, importantly, I don't remember how to show the fstab. I will look it up, or maybe you can post the command...?

cat /etc/fstab
it will be printed in the terminal, you may use an editor otherwise

kwrite /etc/fstab
But if you don't really want to mount the other partitions, it's an issue of KDE-sudo, or another KDE-component. You'll have to search in the KDE-systemsettings. Anywhere in a section like "advanced usersettings", I don't have the english menus available yet, I'll have to check it with another user. It has to do with "automatically mounting of plugable devices". I'll look it up and add a screenshot.
