Re: Auto-mounting USB flash memory drives
It don't matter if it is in /mnt or /media or your /home/mepisuser folder, just make sure you put a folder there with the same name as the name you use in /etc/fstab.
You need to first get the UUID of the flash drive, plug it in and then as root run 'blkid' in the console find the flash drive and note the UUID.
Now you need to add this to your fstab using the SuperUser file manager open /etc/fstab, make a new line above the entry: "# Dynamic entries below" this is where you will put the new line for your flash drive. I'm going to give you a couple of examples one for vfat and one for Linux.
UUID=ECAF-9B51 /home/mepisuser/usb vfat auto,users,gid=users,dmask=002,fmask=113,relatime 0 0
UUID=1bd86f42-8f2f-4d93-b30c-cdddec9621a9 /home/mepisuser/usb ext4 auto,users,exec,relatime 0 0
The first is for fat16 or fat32 and the second is Linux ext4 or change it to ext3 or ext2, whatever file system you are using on the flash drive.
Change the names and the UUID as needed.
