I am very new to manjaro, and my setup consists of a 120GiB SSD for the OS and a 700GiB HDD that I plan to use for storing the contents of
Pictures. I followed this wiki to create a permanent mount point and used the kde system setting>removable storange>removable devices and checked the automount on attach option. I also followed the comments from this user and it all basically worked until I rebooted my system. None of the data is gone but the symlinks seem to have 'forgotten' where the media files are- if I try to open the symlink to
Documents for example, I get an error (before the reboot though, it was working fine- I tested every symlink I created). Also, I am on kde- in Dolphin, under the Places section, if I click eg on
Documents, I get a message saying
The file or folder does not exist. I guess I screwed up while following the instructions but I can't seem to find where I made a mistake. Any help would be appreciated.
Here is my fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may # be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if # disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> UUID=87b68a17-f14d-4fd4-8636-ea454d474b42 / ext4 defaults,noatime,discard 0 1 UUID=9a047cf9-7922-406f-8a7f-6a16c0d40979 swap swap defaults,noatime,discard 0 2 tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0 #700 GB HDD #UUID=4aa132bd-9eea-422e-922d-5a14614e52de/media/Data ext4 nofail, noatime, rw, user, uid=1000, gid=1000, dmask=022, fmask=133, windows_names, auto 0 0 #Storage UUID =4aa132bd-9eea-422e-922d-5a14614e52de /run/media/peter/Data ext4 defaults
UPDATE: I have no idea what fixed it but I followed the steps outlined in this wiki except
I had to chown user for the media and data directories. (this step was suggested by @Photon)
I had to remove the
noatimeattribute (I kept getting a parsing error when I ran
But now everything works as expected. Thank you everyone for your time and patience.
