Thanks for all the replies. I cannot test them all but I did test an
off list suggestion that left me a bit embarrassed - it was such a
Back in Menu editor, select the Advanced tab and put a tick in Run in
Terminal. A shell opens with a prompt to enter the password, I enter it
and the mounting or unmounting is performed. I worked through this afew
times and there are no issues I can see.
Now the partition is mounted at start up via fsab. I can unmount it
from the menu. If I want it mounted again I have a menu option.
Brian - I would like to unmount via a right click, but in Konqueror at
least a right click does not give me that option. I am very interested
in your solution. Can you tell me more?
