Auto-mounting drives on Ubuntu at startup

Find out the device name of the partition you want to mount. Check under /dev or open the partition in nautilus (Ubuntu's file browser/explorer) and run the "mount" command in terminal to identify the device name e.g. /dev/sda3

Go to Ubuntu dash (top right) -> Startup Applications

Add a new startup application as shown in the image below and you're all set! Command : /usr/bin/udisks --mount /dev/sda3

The drive will be mounted automatically when you login to Ubuntu. This solution works on Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric), Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) and Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal).
