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!

 Very nice

I suggest you make your kcontrol module a little more verbose about the options. Not everybody who will use this knows what to type. Maybe you could give an editable and documented list of options or something that allows people to choose what sounds sensible instead of being forced to type something they don't necessarily know. Maybe a kind of "Create or configure device Wizard" would be a good idea. (If you don't know what I mean have a look at k3bsetup from the k3b project).
Anyway, the idea of making fstab more accessible is great.

Very, very nice. With a little more polish that would be the kind of thing that ought to be included in kdeadmin. I hope also that the generated fstab is nicely formated and readable without having to scroll in a standard console. Cheers.

 Improvements

Hi!
Nice to see that there is such a great interest in this little piece of software.
I'm already working on an improved version.
It will get a wizard to easily add new devices.
Any suggestions for an improved "expert"-interface?

> Any suggestions for an improved "expert"-interface?

A button to convert normal mounts to supermount:
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro,user 0 0
vs.
none /mnt/cdrom supermount ro,dev=/dev/cdroms/cdrom0,fs=iso9660,-- 0 0


A little button to add options with a description would also be nice.... maybe you can read the description of the file-system spesific option out of the correspondent man-pages at runtime....

Hmmmm...
Supermount you say?
I think it's obsolete already, isn't it?
SubFS is its successor AFAIK.
My system doesn't support Supermount, but SubFS.
But maybe you want to use autofs for something?
No, I don't think it would be a good idea to offer those options.
It's too complicated with all those different approaches for the same thing.
I'm currently working on a wizard to assist you by adding new devices.
I think this is much more important.

 Good idea!

Good idea for all of us that do not use a distribution that comes with all that automated tools by its own (as MDK, Suse etc). But I think that the main dialog, the way it shows the current devices, it could be do in a better, more graphical and more eye-candy way. I'll try to work on a .ui sample to let you know what I have in mind, ok? :)

Does anyone know how to query the system for existing block devices?
I need help with this.
My current approach to get a list of installed block devices uses the proc-filesystem and requires kernel 2.6.
But I'd like to support kernel 2.4 as well.
Anyone who has an idea how to achieve this, PLEASE, contact me!

 Linux 2.4

Well Linux 2.4 has /proc/mounts which contains all the info on the currently mounted filesystems.

Yes - but what about devices you want to _add_ to your fstab because they aren't there already?
I don't think it will make anything easier for the user if he has to mount a device manually before he is able to configure it with fstab, isn't it?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
