I have 4 partition which all of them are ext4. Except the fedora installed partition plus the swap one, the others aren't Per-User. I want to automount them in startup and furthermore I want to have access and permission to handle files through these partitions. What should I do ?

While this may not be a complete step-by-step answer for your particular case I think it will answer many of your questions

You can either setup /etc/fstab manually, or I think the disks utility might be of help. You can open the disks utility by searching for disks in Gnome Shell.

Make sure you use UUIDs in fstab since /dev/sdX# might be different when you reboot your system (or change your harddrive configuration).

Actually I used disks to off the "automatic mount option". After that, I checked "mount at startup" & "show in user interface" and this is mount options "nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show". Then I typed as a root in terminal "chmod 777 /mnt/*" (the stars should be replaced with name of your partition path which you can find in disks), by this way, I activated different permissions which you can find about them in different web pages.
