Auto Import
« on: April 02, 2015, 04:41:52 pm »

I cannot get Auto Import to work automatically.  I was able to configure it with the path to my NAS drive.  When I load new discs, they will not be scanned into the library until I click on the button to "Run Auto import now."  Once I click that button, the newly loaded discs load fine.  It just will not do it automatically when I load them.

In my experience, auto-import has worked correctly since

Are you running an older version?
Is your NAS permanently mounted?

I am running MC 20.0.70 with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.  I don't understand how to permanently mount the NAS.  If my computer needs to reboot, then I have to mount the NAS.

You can edit "fstab" and add the drives to automount at startup. This link might help you http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1490708
This is a config issue with your PC, autoimport has been working for some time on MC Linux version.
I assume once your drive is mounted, it works as expected?

Thank you for your suggestions.  I will check into the ubuntu forum you suggested.  If I restart my computer after running an update or to recover from a lock up, I run a command in Terminal to remount the NAS drive.  If I forget the mount and attempt to play anything, I get an error the file can't be found.  Once the drive is mounted, it will play fine.  The only thing that doesn't happen is MC does not automatically scan newly loaded discs on the NAS drive.  If I click on the Main Library button, a menu appears with a button to Run Auto Import Now.  When I click that button, the recently loaded discs are scanned in.  Even though Run Auto Import in background is enabled, it doesn't scan the new discs until I click that button in the menu.

#Windows-Partition WDRED1
UUID=27587FAF6E5A444E /media/WDRED1 ntfs users,defaults,umask=0000,uid=1000 0 0

That above is added to my "/etc/fstab" file.
"/media/WDRED1" is where it will be mounted at start up, you create this using "sudo mkdir /media/WDRED1" (or whatever you want to call it)

this command returns all UUID info for all the discs, this is how you would determine the UUID to add to fstab
sudo blkid
or
ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/

then edit /etc/fstab, you will have to use "sudo vi /etc/fstab" or similar, then add an extra line at the end:
UUID=xxxxxxxxxxxx /media/MyNAS ntfs users,defaults,umask=0000,uid=1000 0 0
corrected with your UID number, and your mountpoint created in /media, also change "ntfs" accordingly, the last bit starting with "users,defaults" should be correct and can remain unchanged

then use it by "sudo mount -a", and make sure it works upon reboot.
