    External HD Missing In Switched User Session


    Greetings!

    I have Travelstar HD hooked to my XFCE Maya system as a on-the-fly Lucky backup, and it works very well, except it disappears on the desktop if I switch to another user account. How can I make it appear and mount and access on both accounts?

    Thanks!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    This is auto-mounting (usb connected drive, correct?) so it will mount under the account of the user that plugged it in. You can unplug it, switch user accounts, and plug it back in again... Alternatively, you can mount it manually as root to a directory where all users are allowed to access.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
