Openbox In Void

Post by shortarcflyer »

I have Void xfce DE installed and added openbox wm to it as well. When logged into xfce DE I can access other distros (and their files) multibooted alongside Void. But when logged into openbox wm, they only way I can access other distros (and their files) is if I individually mount each distro in terminal ( sudo mount /dev/sda* /mnt) and accessing them through the /mount folder. Is there another or better way to make them mount automatically without having to do this each time I am logged into openbox wm? Thanks for any help!

Hi sortarcflyer (RC flyer I take it?),

I've never used Openbox but maybe it lacks support for automounting discovered filesystems If that's the case you can manually add the other mount points to your /etc/fstab file or you can use AutoFS to automatically mount your desired filesystems upon access. Usually AutoFS is used for remote filesystems or removable media and a manually entry with /etc/fstab is likely preferred if the drives are a permanent installation.

The manual edit of my /etc/fstab worked like a champ after adjusting it a few times to get it like I wanted. Many thanks pid1!
