Description Vinagre 2009-02-09 16:15:37 EST
I have two disks with ntfs partitions on each, and nautilus will not mount those volumes.
Cannot mount volume.
Unable to mount the volume 'Backup'.
Cannot get volume.fstype.alternative

This seems related:

Comment 2 Vinagre 2009-02-15 08:35:29 EST
I tested the fix.
su -c 'nano /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/20-ntfs-config-write-policy.fdi'
to add:
<merge key="volume.fstype" type="string">ntfs-3g</merge>

It fixed the problem. :-)

This is not a nautilus bug, changed to ntfs-3g.

It's wired because, now the ntfs partition are mounted but nautilus still displays this error message:
"Unable to mount location
Internal error: No mount object for mounted volume"

This should be another bug

Ugh. Bodhi didn't write anything here. I have updates in testing for F9 and F10 that should fix it. Please download the appropriate update and let me know if it resolves the issue.

I have the mentioned package installed on FC10 system. However, nautilus still produces the error:

Unable to mount location
Internal error: No mount objected for mounted volume.

If I mount the USB using the icon in left under "Places" coolumn, no such error is produced.
