Automatic Mounting of NTFS Drive on Ubuntu

To automatically mount an NTFS drive on Ubuntu at startup with RW permissions for all users, add the following line to /etc/fstab:

UUID=146A91D346A61CBD4 /media/DATA ntfs-3g exec,rw,umask=000,users,gid=users,nls=utf8 0 0

where the UUID number for your NTFS partition can be found at the command line by entering:

sudo blkid

NXServer 3.5 and Ubuntu 12.04

Sometimes, when accessing a machine with Ubuntu 12.04 (or newer) running NXServer 3.5 from a system running NXClient 3.5 or OpenNX, all you can see is a screen with a desktop picture but no panels or menus.

In this case it is necessary to edit the file /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg on the server in order for it to default the virtual desktop to 2D, without effects.

Almost at the end of the file change the line CommandStartGnome to one of the following:

For Unity:

CommandStartGnome = "/usr/bin/gnome-session --session=ubuntu-2d"


For Gnome Classic:

CommandStartGnome = “/usr/bin/gnome-session --session=gnome-classic”

Hi Everyone. This page will try to include some interesting stuff I’ve been doing lately, while carrying out graduate studies at the University of Miami, USA. Currently I am working in the Cosmology Lab, under the supervision of Dr. Joshua Gundersen.
