I’ve been recently trying to mount my ntfs drive through ntfs-3g, but I haven’t had much luck.
I’m trying to mount it as user and tell it to not automount. This is on openSUSE 11.0.
Hmm … maybe an fstab entry would help?
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/windata ntfs-3g users,noauto,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0
That \might\ be what you’re looking for.
Yes it will help provided it’s not a USB drive which can be handled better another way.

Are you sure you mean automount, and not hotplug?
Do you mean that you want to connect, but not have it mounted?
Or do you wish it to be mounted with ntfs-3g, rather than the default ntfs ?
For that last case, there is a solution:
sudo ln -s mount.ntfs-3g mount.ntfs
This will mount all ntfs partitions on USB drives with the ntfs-3g driver,

I can access my two NTFS drives in KDE but not in GNOME??

what can i do to get nautilius to see these drives
I want to have the system detect the drive without it automounting it so that I can mount it as a user so I can read and write to it.

Do you mean that you just don’t want the drive to be mounted, for an
unspecified reason? Or is it because it gets mounted Read-Only, and you want
to mount it R/W ?
Never attribute to malice that which is
adequately explained by stupidity.
