Mounting hard drives
Because I always forget the commands…
Usually you plug a portable hard drive into your ubunty computer and it auto detects the drive and shows it in nautilus. Then you click on it, it gets mounted.
Problem: if you are only ssh’ing into the computer you cannot click on it.
Solution: This command will make sure it gets mounted under /media/$username/$volumelabel
udisksctl mount -b /dev/$deviceId$partition
With $deviceId being for instance “sda” and $partition is “1”.
You find your $deviceId with one of these commands:
You have to guess the partition number, for mobile devices a good guess is $partition=1
