Mount on boot. I want my USB flash drive for my ownCloud instance. So it would be nice if the device is always available after every boot. Jan has also a solution for this. Now we need the column UUID from the output above. Edit the file /etc/fstab with any editor, for example nano. sudo nano /etc/fstab. Please add the following line at the end ... gnomesu gedit /etc/fstab. and a KDE user opens fstab in the editor “kwrite” with this command: kdesu kwrite /etc/fstab. Type the line for the mount, using the templates below. The line can be placed anywhere in the list of lines. I recommend at the bottom and make sure the very last line is a blank line.
