It's easy to use USB stick when the system can mount it automatically. But in my case, Ubuntu mounts my Sony USB stick with nonsense name such as ``/media/disk-1,'' so I wanted to know how to mount my Sony USB stick with fixed name (mount point), for example, ``/media/sonyusb.''
There is an easy way to do it via GUI setting. Right click on the device icon on the Desktop, then
Properties --> Volume --> Settings --> Mount Point
But WAIT!! Do NOT type absolute path name like ``/media/theNameYouWant.'' Simply give it ``theNameYouWant,'' or you will get error message with your USB stick unmounted.
If you've fallen into the strape, just as what I did, then here is also an easy way to recover it. Use gconf-editor. Type ``gconf-editor'' in the command line and it will give you a friendly GUI as the follows.
In my case, the wrong setting was found in the so-called key ``/system/storage/volumes/_org_freedesktop_Hal_devices_volume_uuid_0829_A0F0.'' The value was ``/media/sonyusb'' and it was not right.
Click on the value field then you can correct it.
