Recommendation (RESOVLED)
« on: March 29, 2020, 12:50:24 pm »
I have just installed Peppermint 10 dual-boot on two older laptops one an Acer running Win10 Home and the other on an Compaq running Win Vista.  I am happy that both connected to my network printer automatically.
So far, the only issue is getting my usb HD to auto mount and bring up the File Manager to view it.  I've tried twice to put the entry in mtab into fstab only to have to use the installation DVD to clear that entry to reboot.  I finally got it to auto boot and it now shows up in File Manager. 
I came from a Slack derivative that is now dead though they are trying. Haven't had a chance to dig very deep yet but am enjoying it.  :)  Do have trouble assembling the anti-spam as I can't get the mouse to slow down - yet.
Thank you guys (and gals).

Hello! and Welcome to our forum @straybit.

Have a look at this tutorial explaining why our late lead Developer @PCNetSpec decided to remove automount:

quarantining is messing with all our minds... no worries...
