Lubuntu setup - addendum27 January 2014
After my last lubuntu post I run in some minor problems, which can be solved easily. For example the autostart function of dropbox does not work out of the box in lubuntu 13.10. Therefore add it manually to the autostart group:
echo "dropbox start -i" >> ~/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart
Additionally I forgot a tool for automated, regular backups:
sudo apt-get install deja-dup, similar to Apples Time Machine.
Auto mounting the NAS broke of with error message like
- mount error (101): Network is unreachable and
- mountall: mount /home/username/mountpoint (process ID) brach mit dem Status 32 ab
This can happen if you use a ssd hard disk, which is much faster and tries to mount the NAS though networking is not ready yet. Therefore I added to the fstab the options
noauto,user, so the owner can mount after login manually
# mount Public NAS folder, like shared Music //NAS/public/music /home/username/Music cifs noauto,user,guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8 0 0 # mount Personal NAS folder, with the username //NAS/username /home/username/Archive cifs noauto,user,credentials=/home/username/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
Alternatively use autofs or use a script like this
#! /bin/sh mount <Mountpunkt1> mount <Mountpunkt2>
sudo chmod +x <Skript> and start it also via the autostart group.
