KDE partition manager is a program to manage and modify partitions (surprise, surprise). It is not related to mount points.
A mount point is the location of a partition in the filesystem hierarchy. And there are several mount “types”:
- static mounts => look at /etc/fstab (and/or systemd-mount)
- ad-hoc mounts => the user mounted the device manually (command
- dynamic mounts => the desktop environment has mounted a device automatically (for example a USB drive)
Please describe in more detail, what you want to do.
To be fair, KDE Partition Manager can be used to mount a partition, but you’re right that it is not a general manager for any and all things related to mounting.
I see. Then I want to set static mounts for some of my partitions. How can I do that?
I like grafical solution much.
Then you have to edit the file /etc/fstab. You find a lot of tutorials and explanations on the Internet or in the man pages:
man 8 mount man 5 fstab man 8 sudoedit
/etc/fstab is only a text file. The best graphical tool to modify this file is a text editor.
After making a copy of the file, open a terminal and execute:
VISUAL=featherpad sudoedit /etc/fstab
Then save, close the editor and test it:
sudo systemctl daemon-reload sudo mount -a
