Description:

FSTabEdit is a control center module to edit your fstab.
It is very basic, but easy to use as well.
If you know what to put in your fstab, you'll be able to use it.
This is similar to the software "Kouvert", but it's implemented as a control center module instead of being a seperate application and it's written in C++, so it doesn't need installed Python and PyQT-bindings.
It hasn't that many options Kouvert has to offer, but I heard some voices disliking interfaces over-filled with options like Kouvert.
If you like more simple interfaces, you may like FSTabEdit.

Changelog:

04/08/21
Added RPM I got from Mohamed Eldesoky.
Thanks for providing us with this RPM again.

04/08/20
Complete rewrite of fstabedit.
Added an overview of found and configured devices.
IMPORTANT! It depends on Linux 2.6!
It will run on Linux 2.4, but not all features will be supported!
It isn't even tested on systems with 2.4, I don't have any left anymore.

04/08/30
Added RPM I got from Mohamed Eldesoky.
Thanks you for providing us with this RPM.

04/08/29
Added screenshot of the new version as a preview to show what's coming up.
The current code is able to fill the list with available devices like shown in the second screenshot.
The buttons don't do anything right now and now changes will be saved.
Not even in memory.
Stay tuned for new versions.

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!
Stop using version 0.2!
It has a major bug which may render your system unbootable!
Mountpoints that are written by fstabedit-0.2 won't work as they should because of a syntax-error in the generated config-file.
This problem is fixed (and tested!) in version 0.3.
Update immediately!

From a usability perspective i would name the entry in the menu different. "FStab-Editor" is no good name. what is is about Partitioning
? Filessystems? Mount points? The user will not get it.

The name has changed already.
The development-version shows up as "Devicemanager" in kcontrol.
That brings me to a thought:
Maybe I should rename it to "Volumemanager"?
A device isn't necessarly a block-device...

Oppinions, suggestions, critics - all to me.

Small question from a packager from the Ark Linux project: where is your project's homepage? If I knew where it is, I could take a look at your current development tree.... Thanks.

Sorry, but this project doesn't have a homepage.
You can download the sources from a project I once created for other KDE-Tools, but FSTabEditor doesn't have a homepage on its on.
As there currently is no active development, you won't find any current source tree on the web.
I once planned some features I wanted to implement.
I should have been paid for this job so far, but until now no money has been transfered to me, so I stopped this project in anger until I get my payment.
Sorry, maybe this is a non-idealistic view, but I prefer to continue on other projects for now.
Please feel free to contact me if you are in need for further features that should be added to this tool.
Maybe I'll start working on it again.

Yours faithfully

As a geek Im like ..ooh this is great but as an engineer that designs human interface devices its..hmm wont work.

Fore starters users dont know what a mount point is nore do they pretty much understand anything in the fstab file.

It might be wiser to translate the geek speak in the fstab file into newbie speak with tick box's for extra options for each device.

ie

Hardisk Storage device 1 [] [] []

CDROM Removable 1 [] [] []

I know you want to stick to the original stuff ..you can but there should be a newbie mode and geek mode.

Then again your average geek wont use this they will just use cat /etc/fstab or vim /etc/fstab so this is really a newbie thing.

Even have it optioned (tick box) to put an icon on the desktop so were its mounted doesnt matter for a newbie.


It's an old magical principle -- it's even filtered down into RPG systems
-- that magic, while taking a lot of effort, can be 'stored' -- in a staff,
for example. No doubt a wizard spends a little

This tool makes a great add-on for a KDE admin machine. Not all admins like to be in those dark and depressing consoles all the time :)

Anyway, a good thing rarely achieved : it just works!

Thanks.

As always, again a great tool from the master of UI design ;-) .

More and more, kcontrol becomes what it should be, a center not only for configuring the many KDE options but to do basic system management; hope this will cause some time the distributors to throw away their own, often ugly, difficult to handle and resource consuming configuration tools.

Thanks a lot for your work!

 Debian Testing

For me, it just doesn't work. Compiled, installed, correctly but when I click on the device-manager (in the KDE-ControlCenter) it asks for the root-pw and that was it... It just loads and loads - but it won't finish.

I'm using Debian Testing (Sarge) with KDE 3.2.3 right now.

Please try to run
kcmshell fstabedit
from a shell.
Maybe you'll get some debug-output.

Executing as a normal user, it works (but without any functions of course...).
And executing as root, it says:"kcmshell: WARNING: Could not find module 'fstabedit'.".

Which prefix did you use when installing fstabedit?
Did you install this in your $KDEHOME (probably $HOME/.kde)?
Or have you installed this globally to $(kde-config --prefix)?
I guess you have installed it to a directory root doesn't search in.

I have the same problem - this does not show up in my Control Center, and running it manually with "kcmshell fastedit" generates an error:

kcmshell: WARNING: Could not find module 'fastedit'.

Don't know what to do about that...

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
