Automount hard drives and partitions on startup for Linux Mint Mate Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install pysdm 

Run as root from the command line

Click on the partitions you want to mount at startup, click assistant button and make sure that the check box 'file system is mounted at boot time', is selected.

Important! If your drives are named by the UUID, they will be renamed by the partition number.  i.e /media/0546188641348786  may become /media/sda3 .  This is guaranteed to break any previous references to files and folders stored in music playlists or other programs that previously used the uuid paths.  You will have to go back and quickly edit these files to the correct path
