    mount/see external USB drives from Midnight Commander


    I am running mc on Slackware 14.1 and can't find a way of mount usb sticks. In other file managers, they usually appear on the left hand panel so I can click on them to be mounted/accessed.

    How is it done in mc? Is there any shortcut or anything to access them?

    Thank you

    I rarely use mc and haven't used Slack before. If you have automounting, the USB drive could be mounted in /media/drive, /media/user/drive, /mnt/drive.

    Thank you. How/where/what would I do to automount a usb stick. Would it matter that I have a usb external drive permanently plugged in, a usb wifi dongle, keyboard and mouse (also always plugged in)?

    Thank you
