Hello fellas, this is ThunderDee from Italy.
Recently I've switched my 2008 MacPro into a one OS system, Trisquel 7!
I love Trisquel, it's so fast and I think I'm gonna install it into another computer but I'm not so pratical about using linux systems in general and with theme-customisation (i've saw few themes from you and I would like to try).
If is okay for you, I'm gonna post here some problems I would like to learn how to solve with your help of course.

Bye for now,
T.

Thanks for the answers guys!! Grazie per le risposte!!

I would ask you what I have to write in the terminal to make automount my usb memories and my second HD without going to Trisquel menu, just like I had in MacOSX.

I find troubles sometimes typing with my apple keyboard inside abrowser like the cursor jump backward and sometimes some word buttons doesn't work.
With youtube videos especially when I jump forward the video, seems like there is a problem with the flash plugin (even with facebook videos), anyone solved in a different way?.

To SuperTramp: I saw your desktop I would ask you where I could find some instructions for "dummies" like me about how to install "custom" themes in trisquel and in general about gnome / xcfe differences.

My Macpro is used by my parents and I want to make trisquel more user-friendly than my old OS.

Thanks in advance for any information you are able to provide.
Bye for now,
T.

"I would ask you what I have to write in the terminal to make automount my usb memories and my second HD without going to Trisquel menu, just like I had in MacOSX."

if you want to mount any drive automaticly you must configure your /etc/fstab file

heres myn:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
#
# / was on /dev/sdb1 during installation
UUID=09c679cf-a27f-4e71-9765-0b73f1784154 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# swap was on /dev/sdb5 during installation
UUID=da998e20-f8fe-4718-9388-9dda8ce8c61f none swap sw 0 0
/dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

#this is the line i added
/dev/sda /media/HDD\0401tb ext4

if this means nothing to you then please say so and i will come up with a more user friendly way

I think you should first open a terminal and run mount

You should from there be able to work out if your hard drive('s partition) is /dev/sdb1 or something like that, and the flash drive partition something like /dev/sdc1.

Next, add the line as said by tomlukeywood, with the "/dev/sda" part corresponding to the output of the mount command. Note that the mount points (the folder to which the partition is mounted) has to already exist.

If you want to mount it the way you do on the desktop, which means the mount point gets added as soon as you mount and removed as soon as you unmount, you should create /etc/xdg/autostart/(what-ever-name-you-want).desktop, which if I'm not mistaken should contain:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Anything you like
Exec="udisks --mount /dev/sdb1 & udisks --mount /dev/sdc1"
Terminal=false
Type=Application

With the "/dev/sd**" part of the "Exec" entry corresponding to the output you got from the mount command.

Thunderdee - Io ho usato gnome flash per vari mesi pero non ho mai investigato molto su di esso.. Per quanto riguarda la personalizzazione di Xfce posso sì spiegarti come si fa. Pero chiaramente devi avere installato l'ambiente desktop Xfce.
Se tale è il caso, sentiti pure libero di mandarmi una mail. Ti farò una piccola guida. Ciao!
