Auto mount USB drives

With usbmount you can plug in USB block devices and they are mounted by default to /media/usb0, /media/usb1, aso. Maybe you have media that is NTFS formatted? No problem, we’ll install ntfs-3g that provides read and write capabilities for NTFS.

sudo apt-get install usbmount ntfs-3g

Try it out. Insert an pen drive or whatever and take a look at /media. Works? Great!

Next step.
