Thread: OpenSuse 12.1 USB Drive - how to (auto)mount?

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuse 12.1 USB Drive - how to (auto)mount?

    I'm new to OpenSuse, coming off of a few years of Ubuntu and hoping things will run faster. I did not install Gnome or KDE desktops, but went with XFCE. When I insert a USB storage device, it shows up in dmesg output and lsusb output, but no device name is given. I tried ones that were discussed on articles I found on the subject (e.g. /dev/sdb1) but none of them existed. I tried udisks and mount, all via sudo, but nothing worked. I suppose there is something obvious here that I am missing because I cannot find many hits on the subject via Google. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

    dmesg output:
    [23879.654104] usb 1-4: new high speed USB device number 2 using ehci_hcd
    [23879.768930] usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=04b0, idProduct=031a
    [23879.768935] usb 1-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3

    When you connect the device it should just show in the file manager

    You can mount from the command prompt, but you need to know the device name from

    Code:
    fdisk -l
    For example, if the drive shows up as /dev/sdb1, you could do

    Code:
    udisks --mount /dev/sdb1

    If that output is complete, you can not mount the device in any way whatsoever, because it does
    not mention the device name. Try a plain USB stick, I guess that one is a camera, and perhaps a
    non supported model. A camera should trigger an application such as shotwell.

    Hi
    That's because it's mounting as a ptp device, you will see it appear in
    dmesg, but if you don't have fuse/gvfs installed it won't mount.

    For example with my tablet set to ptp device;
    Code:
    [389754.519691] usb 2-1.1: new high-speed USB device number 6 using ehci_hcd
    [389754.625378] usb 2-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=0b05, idProduct=4e4f
    [389754.625383] usb 2-1.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    [389754.625386] usb 2-1.1: Product: Transformer TF101
    [389754.625389] usb 2-1.1: Manufacturer: asus
    
    ls .gvfs/gphoto2\ mount\ on\ usb%3A002\,006/
    DCIM  Pictures
    
    gvfs-mount -l
    Volume(0): ASUSTek Computer, Inc. Transformer TF101
    Type: GProxyVolume (GProxyVolumeMonitorGPhoto2)
    Mount(0): ASUSTek Computer, Inc. Transformer TF101 -> gphoto2://[usb:002,006]/
    Type: GProxyShadowMount (GProxyVolumeMonitorGPhoto2)
    Mount(1): ASUSTek Computer, Inc. Transformer TF101 ->   gphoto2://[usb:002,006]/
    Type: GDaemonMount
    Can your device be set to a different mount type?

    Hi
    Looks like you either need to build libptp libptp2 Project Page or install gPhoto which incorporates the library.

    I missed this

    As Malcolm correctly identified, gphoto can handle these. IIRC, I have a work camera and iPhone that use this method to tranfer files with.

    For reference, my openSUSE 11.4 system has these packages installed
    Code:
    gphoto-2.4.10-2.1.x86_64
    libgphoto2-2.4.10-3.1.x86_64

    Thank you everyone for your helpful replies. Sorry I didn't notice them sooner (have to check on notifications). I installed gphoto. With the camera attached, I can now open the device using Shotwell. I'd love for it to open in the file browser, like it did for me in Ubuntu.

    I know I can browse/copy with the KDE (Dolphin) file manager. I guess you're using the Thunar file manager if using XFCE?

    Yes, I use Thunar - also command shell.
