    Default Dolphin & Windows Drives

    Hi,

    Dolphin will not display my Windows drives. When I initially installed Suse 11.1 the drives were displayed in Dolphin. Then they disappeared after I installed the NTFS write application.

    Here is my fstab file:

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD4000AAJS-00TKA0_WD-WCAPW3164391-part9 / ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 1
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD4000AAJS-00TKA0_WD-WCAPW3164391-part10 /home ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/sda1 /windows/C ntfs-3g user,users,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HDT721064SLA360_STFD07MG1JAGKK-part3 /windows/D ntfs-3g defaults,users,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-path/pci-0000:00:05.0-scsi-0:0:0:0-part5 /windows/E ntfs-3g defaults,users,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HDT721064SLA360_STFD07MG1JAGKK-part6 /windows/F ntfs-3g defaults,users,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD4000AAJS-00TKA0_WD-WCAPW3164391-part6 swap swap defaults 0 0
    debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0


    What am I doing wrong? Thank you for the help.

    With Dolphin SuperUser mode right click on the folder
    /windows
    Select Properties - Permissions
    Make it so the settings are Owner, Group, Others (Can View and Modify Content)
    And lower left check the box Apply Changes to all sub-folders
    Apply

    Thanks. With your suggestion I was able to find the drives under the windows directory under root. All I want Dolphin to do is show the drives under"Places" which still is not happening. But thank you for showing me an alternative.

    Open Dolphin, navigate to /windows and drag the folder icon C to the Places tab. Done. Same goes for D, E, or whatever folder.

    In my dual boot days, I used to mount windows drives in /other
