1. Install the Storage Device Manager application,
$ sudo apt–get install pysdm
2. Open the Storage Device Manager application, Applications->System Tools->Administration->Storage Device Manager
3. Select the partition to be set on the Partition List, I want to set the sda5 with the ntfs filesystem.
4. There is a question “/dev/sda5 hasn’t been configured. Do you want to configure now ?”. Click OK.
5. Click mountpoint to set the partition mount location
6. Click Assistant
7. Make sure the option “The filesystem is mounted at boot time” partition is mounted at boot time. And uncheck “Mount filesystem in read-only mode” so that the partition can be read-write.
8. Click OK.
9. Click Apply, Close
10. Test by restarting your Ubuntu
The configuration above will change the contents of the /etc/fstab file. I set up two partitions so that it would add two lines of script, namely:
/dev/sda6 /media/data ntfs nls=iso8859–1,umask=000 0 0
/dev/sda5 /media/master ntfs nls=iso8859–1,umask=000 0 0
So for manual configuration, you can directly set the /etc/fstab file, but if you don’t want to bother, just use the Storage Device Manager.
