So I may be late to the party for Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, but as someone who just upgraded from 12.04.02 Precise Pangolin, I found an important issue affecting my crontab: the path to external media devices such as the backup hard drive I have plugged into my machine has changed.
Previously, if I’d wanted to access the contents of the external disk SCALZI from the command-line, I would have simply gone to
/media/SCALZI/; this, however, is no longer the case. In the new scheme, this media mounts at
/media/[username]/[device]/, so in the case above, I would instead go to
The more you know.
(Yes, I name my external media after authors. I have, among my collection of flash drives, Scalzi, Asimov, Gaiman, Pratchett, and Pierce.)
