    Question How to auto-recognize drive units on boot?

    Hi all, I have a problem with my HTPC based on Kubuntu.

    I have an SSD for the OS and a 2tb drive for files. Everytimes I boot the computer I have to go to Dolphin file manager and enter on the secondary drive that appears as a device; this is because it appears with a red croos icon, and when I enter on it it changes to a green ok icon.

    If I enter XBMC without having done this, I can't access to the content of this drive, so I always have to enter dolphin and open drive before opening XBMC.

    It's very annoying, so... how can I make kubuntu enable this drive automatically on every startup? It also happend if a use a USB hard drive, by default I cant access to it until I open in dolphin.

    I want Linux to automount? (not sure if it's the appropiate word) all units on start and show them with green ok icon instead red cross.

    Many thanks in advance

    Many Thanks,

    I will do it for using samba locations since I see it's useful for this, by now I solved this problem in this way:

    see systemsettings -> removable devices -> attached drives

    for all removable drives:
    1) -> enable automatic mounting .........., click preferences
    or for only that 1 drive:
    2) -> select the usb driv -> click automount on login & automount on attach

    Honestly, I really really can't figure out why this option is not enabled by default.

    Regards
