Default Partition Won't Mount Properly at Boot

You should be able to configure KDE to auto mount the partition at boot - it's under 'Removeable Devices' (confusingly) in System Settings.

OS-independent data (Windows 7 / Kubuntu 11.10 dual-boot) so it's
really annoying when I boot up the computer and go right to Eclipse,
and Eclipse complains that it can't find the folder because it's not
mounted. I have to go back out, open up Dolphin, click on the
partition to mount it, then return to Eclipse. I've already run
chkdsk on the partition and Windows reports 0 errors. Anything else
I can do? The other idea I had in mind was to create a script to
mount it and then have Kubuntu run that script at boot, see if it
makes a difference.

When the partition is mounted on boot, it is mounted by root, which makes it read-only to your user. If you need the partition to be always mounted by your user, you can add the option "uid=youruser" to the fstab line.


I use to do this editing /etc/fstab directly, but there may be a way to do that using the GUI suggested in Mark Greenwood's message, also.
