@01micko and lapis:

Woooo.. Someone answered, I was hoping so! Thanks for the info, I'm gonna try and play with it, but am sure I know way too little to fix it, but would love auto mount all to be fixed in muppyquickmount!!

I've given startmount a few tests, it wasn't that reliable for me, but i'm gonna try the latest version today..

Hi sc0ttman, I've played a bit with mounting ntfs partitions and the problem is definitely related to using the mount command without specifying a file type.

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
uses a different driver to
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1

When "-t ntfs" is specified ntfs-3g is used to mount the partition and write access is okay.

Does anyone know why ntfs-3g is not used if "-t ntfs" is not specified? From my reading of the mount manual it looks like it should be the same for both.

If you look at /usr/local/MuppyQuickmount/resource/muppyquickmount
on line 231 you will see:
mount (drive)

I wonder if it would work if you change it to:
mount -t filesystemtype (drive)

where "filesystemtype" is "ntfs" where appropriate.

That all sounds like it might help (I guess!), not that I would be able to make those changes!! But if anyone could, that would be great.. I'd be happy to test it out...

Another issue with MuppyQuickMount is that CD/DVD mounting seems not to work for me most of the time... But hey ho... I still like it..

I updated MuppyQuickmount.pet and also the "all in one" Muppyfiler-gtkbasic.pet.

Now also NTFS-drives should be mounted read-write, when the drives are mounted at startup automatically.

And vfat drives are mounted using the " -t vfat" option.
On fluppy, this was not needed though, as long filenames are displayed also without this option. So let me know please, if it fixes issue with long filenames on system, where the old version did not work.

By default, now all drives are mounted at startup.

If you don't want this, simply remove the file /root/Startup/muppyquickmount-all

When your Puppy is shutting down, everything is unmounted, if you don't want that too, then delete /etc/init.d/muppyquickmountmountall.

Thanks for your last messages and sorry for the late update, my job kept me busy...

Mark

great, THANKS for the update! Smile

I have added this to Akita, as I left in GTK-Basic from way back when it was Puppy Arcade... (PA7 or PA6 used muppyquickmount)...

I'm sorry, ntfs/vfat still was not fixed, my bugfix was not sufficient.

I now updated both pets again, and tested it more carefully. Now it works.

Hey MU; Good to see you`re still putting out code... Cool

A great app., much like my DriveMan I became disgusted with awhile back.
A solid app., and using buttons instead of a right-click menu keeps it simple.

Quickmount shows info., nice! Saves the need for another separate app.

Sub_title: Good news! Code updates to keep MuppyQuickMount current! (:-)
 

Hello, all!

Installing the attached pet package will enable the use of MuppyQuickMount on recent
Puppies. I prefer MuppyQuickMount over any other GUI utility of this kind because of
its speed, ease of use and general appearance. Which is why I am providing this update.

It contains
* blkid-2.23 from http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/util-linux/ (thanks to Médor
from the French side of the forum for discovering that Puppy's new default blkid was not
doing the job for MuppyQuickMount); this will allow MuppyQuickMount to correctly show
the file type of HD partitions; and

* a slightly modified muppyfinddisks file (thanks to me! Wink ) to reflect the changes
that were incorporated in the newer probedisk utility by BK. Ref.:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02103

This slight change in MU's BASIC code enables MuppyQuickMount to recognize the
CD's and DVD's correctly.

After you've installed this update, if the optical drives still do not seem to mount once
they are listed in the CD/DVD panel,
- check that a data CD or DVD is in the drive...
- tick the < /mnt/ > mini-circle AND
- click the < Mount > button in the CD/DVD panel.
That should do it.

I successfully applied these updates to wary-5.5, wheezyPup, raringPup-3.9.9.2 and
rerwin's sulu (aka SuperLupu). With the attached update, MuppyQuickMount can now
be used in recent Puppies.

As a reminder, to get MuppyQuickMount running properly on your Puppy, you need:
* wxbasic : http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Programming/wxBasic-2.5-Gtk2.pup
* puppybasic : http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Programming/PuppyBasic-2.6.pet
* the program itself : attached to 1st post of this thread

or the three of them in one fell swoop, from :
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=13139
with Muppy_Filer as a bonus.

* plus the update attached to this post.

Constructive comments welcome. Have a great day! Smile

Seems very good. If I install the "three component" pet it works but does not display "Type" (all shown as unknown) but after I install your update it does show the types and shows swap state too.

Testing on Slacko 5.6

If I had one suggestion it would be that a checkbox to enable / disable the "mountall at boot time" feature would be really nice.

HI, greengeek.

Thanks for the illustrations. Much needed: some people actually do think in pictures.

To disable the "mountall at boot time" feature, there's nothing quite like the good old
brute force solution Wink : go to the /root/Startup folder, spot the "mountall at boot time"
link, highlight it and hit your newly configured "delete" key! Laughing It's really simple! Cool
(For us mere mortals: highlight, then hit the Cntrl-X combo!) Wink

Invitation: if there still exists one (1) wxbasic programmer out there in the wild, (s)he
could grant greengeek's wish and mine, and insert a nice button in the MuppyQuick-
Mount interface and we wouldn't have to use brute force! Anyone? Smile

(BTW, a BASIC programmer I am not: I just have an eye for out of fashion variables!)

Again thanks for your input, greengeek. Have fun!

You mentioned that the "three component" pet has bonus contents of Muppy_Filer, which I had not heard of, but it looks good. For those who have not seen it is a two pane file manager along the lines of emelfm:

Hello again, greengeek, and all.

(Edit, Dec. 22. 2013.)
It has come to my attention that the blkid library and include may be missing on some
very recent Puppies (version # higher than the wary 5.5). So here they are:

MQMnt-Update-0.1a-blkid-libs.pet, 0.25 Mb.

The size is too large for an upload to the forum, so you'd download from
http://limelinx.com/iyfa

This is the libblkid I use in UpupRaring-3.992. In a terminal, type
Code:
ldd --version

to find out which glibc version your Puppy uses. This package should be good for
any Puppy with a glibc of 2.15 or more.

If in doubt, or if the attached package simply does not work for you, try the package
referenced in the post below.

Best regards.

Hello again, people.

Users of wary 5.3 and up may need this update instead. Here, the blkid version and
the corresponding library are lower than those of the above package, it's from a lupu
version, I believe, but it still gets the job done. Get it from here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=73256

Credit for packaging this one goes to Médor from the French side of the forum.
(But don't worry, the package contains only the lib and my edit of MU's muppyfinddisks
script, so no human language is involved.)

BFN.
