PySDM GUI tool to edit fstab file and manage partitions

by manojgumber

If you want to configure which partitions to be mounted at boot time , with what permissions, at which path — all of this can be done by editing the /etc/fstab file.

But You can also get away from remembering the cryptic fstab syntax and still getting your work done by using PYSDM.

Pysdm is a gui tool for  making changes to fstab.

PySDM is a Storage Device Manager that allows full customization of hard disk mountpoints without manually access to fstab.
It also allows the creation of udev rules for dynamic configuration of storage devices.

To install PySDM, Go to

System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager -> search for pysdm -> right click pysdm -> mark for installation -> apply changes.

You can access  PySDM in System -> Administration -> Storage Device Manager.
