How did you install? With ubiquity?

I installed Caine with ubiquity:
Code:
$ sudo ubquity &
I started the installed Caine, and mounter started on login of my new user but required a password to start. If that meets your needs, you are done.



If you want mounter and all other administrative commands to start without requiring a password as it does in Caine-live, edit your sudoers file:
Code:
$ sudo visudo
Enter a line at the bottom of the file where <user> is replaced by your username:
Code:
<user> ALL = NOPASSWD: ALL
Log out, then log back in, mounter should be started without the need for the password.

NOTE: Your user will be able to run any command without requiring a password. This is a security risk and may lead to substantial harm to your system. However, this is most like the Caine-live experience



If you want to mounter to start without requiring a password but require a password for other administrative commands (like normal desktop Linux), edit your sudoers file:
Code:
$ sudo visudo
Enter a line at the bottom of the file where <user> is replaced by your username:
Code:
<user> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/mounter
Log out, then log back in, mounter should be started without the need for the password. You will still be required to use your password for other administrative actions.
NOTE: This still posses a small security risk in that the mounter script could be changed to run other administrative commands. In a running Linux system, this would require the attacker to know the root password to change mounter, however, and if that was the case, such an attack would not be necessary.



Finally, you can allow any member of the 'admin' group to launch mounter without a password but retain normal permissions for other processes:
Code:
$ sudo visudo
Enter a line at the bottom of the file to allow the 'admin' group, indicated by a '%'symbol, to launch mounter without a password:
Code:
%admin ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/mounter

NOTE: The only other %admin group entry in the sudoers file should be '%admin ALL = (ALL) ALL' which allows members of the admin group to run any command on any attached host. Delete any other lines to avoid conflicts. I had to delete other admin group entries in Caine 3.0 before mounter would launch without a password for my administrative user in installed Caine.

I got the issue why its not starting up. I was having multiple users logged in from vnc and console and when utility is running from console it doesnt start from vnc session.
