It comes in two variants ntfs-3g and lowntfs-3g with a few differences mentioned below in relevant options descriptions. The volume to be mounted can be either a block device or an image file.
No matter what I do, ls -l anywhere on the NTFS partition will list every file and folder as owned by root: However, this causes some problems for me.
Most notably, some applicaitons running under my account called tomas complain about access rights. Also, whenever I try to copy cp or move mv files from one of my ext3 partitions to the NTFS partition, I get error messages saying mv: Operation not permitted or, similarly mv: Would mounting the partition in my name instead of root help?
If so, how do I accomplish that in fstab? I have now changed the options according to the suggestions, and arrived at this: However, not all of them. When I start Eclipse, I get an error that a file related to the android-sdk cannot be run: But if I try to run it.
But if I run it with sudo, it works I believe - at least it doesn't give me an error message, but it doesn't give me any output at all, which I think it shouldn't Why is the above file, with execute permissions for anyone, still not executable by anyone else than root? How do I change the way I mount the file system so it is?
OK, I've now come a little bit further. The permissions for the adb script file come up as above, but neither I nor Eclipse can run it without "Permission denied" errors. Why doesn't it work?
Update 3 OK, I got everything working on the Ubuntu side, with the following options: On all the files of those few I've examined a new account called Account Unknown long GUID has been added to the list of users, and has full rights. Rigths for most other users are decreased so that I don't have rights to do stuff I expect.
This might be solvable by just selecting the partition and allow Everyone to do anything on the root folder, and then tell it to do it recursively, but I'd rather not as I'm afraid it will take days to completeIn the options column add permissions and auto (and probably user or users) nls=iso,permissions,users,auto permissions: (NTFS-3G option) Set standard permissions on created files and use standard access control.
Support and Common Tasks. SUSE Linux Enterprise offers a wide range of tools to customize various aspects of the system. This part introduces a few of them. Access Handling and Security. By default, files and directories are owned by the effective user and group of the mounting process and everybody has full read, write, execution and directory browsing permissions.
You can also assign permissions to a single user by using the uid and/or the gid options together with the umask, or fmask and dmask options. But, when mounting with the permissions option, you can see a "Using default user mapping", so as far as I understood, there's a "user mapping" thing that can be created to be used with permissions, and that mapping will have the owner/permissions that we want to set.
ntfs-3g is an NTFS driver, which can create, remove, rename, move files, directories, hard links, and streams; it can read and write files, including streams, sparse files and transparently compressed files; it can handle special files like symbolic links, devices, and FIFOs; moreover it provides standard management of file ownership and permissions, including POSIX ACLs.
If I use sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /media/drive, then only the root user can use it. It won't let me change the permissions/ownership on files after it's mounted (although folders are ok), which is .
