I have recently made the full time switch to KDE Neon from Windows 10 after years of being an on and off linux user.
I have been having issues with mounting drives in KDE Neon. Currently I have 4 drives total, 3 of these drives are mounted to a location in my home directory. Two of these drives will sporadically not automount and require me to mount them via dolphin with a quick double click.
Normally not a big issue, however one of the use cases for my setup is that I like to play games in a different room via steamlink, so steam is started automatically (using the built in “Autostart” application) to make it easier for me and my family to do this. A majority of the games are installed to these two drives that are not automounting. Steam is unfortunately not able to access these even after mounting and fully restarting steam without a full system restart.
I have used KDE Partition manager to create mount points and the fstab looks good. (See fstab below).
The two drives that are not mounting are sdd1 & sde1 (Program Drive and Game Drive), the third always mounts. The only hardware difference is that sdd1 & sde1 are SSDs with storage drive being a HDD.
GNU nano 4.8 /etc/fstab
# /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).

Any advice is super welcome as I am a little lost on this one.
Thanks in advance, James
