Ubuntu :: Any Way Can Have Full Permissions To Modify NTFS Drives In KDE?
Feb 13, 2011
I have one drive for Kubuntu and 4 other NTFS drives. When I'm using Ubuntu Desktop Environment (GNOME), I seem to be able to delete files, create new folders, files etc, in all the NTFS drives. That is, I have full permissions to make changes in the NTFS drives. But when I switch to KDE, this isn't possible. Options like rename, delete, cut, etc, aren't working, they aren't highlighted.Is there any way I can have full permissions to modify NTFS drives in KDE?
The issue I am having is that Virtual Box does not recognize my USB drives. I understand that it is related to the fact that Ubuntu cannot recognize the permissions on the USB NTFS drive. So how do I mount the ntfs drive and gain full permissions?
One post suggested that I have to join my user to the 'vbuser' group in users and groups to fix this in 9.04, but I do not have a "vbuser" group in my list of groups. I am running 10.04.
any way to change file permissions of NTFS drives? All my C programming files resides in a NTFS drive and I need to set execute permision on them in order to run. I tired chmod -Rv 777 /media/Programming. and also tired chmod 775 *.* after entering the folder in which all my files resides. but both these commands doesn't seem to have any effect on the files. I know NTFS doesn't use Unix file system and chmod command goes in vain.
i am using SUSE 11.0 KDE 4.0 i had root account installed in 8.0 Gb drive, and a normal account installed in 4.0 Gb drive .And i was using rest of space for windows (NTFS). Now i want to use a drive (NTFS) to linux for additional requirements. i want get write permissions to that drive .. am i able to get ??r else ..i need to format with EXT3?
Prior to upgrading some of my hardware I had 4 drives used just as storage. Now I'm trying to mount the drives as an LVM but I don't have enough slots to connect all the drives at once now b/c they use an outdated type of cable. I can connect three of the four. So, can I somehow move these to a new group, or remove the missing drive from the existing group?The error is:Couldn't read all logical volumes for volume group VolGroup.Couldn't find device with uuid 'yQtrVB-5jCk-vF10-05c2-AcDL-GNn1-ivdxxh'.
just thought i would throw this out there as a google search doesnt even come back with what i need. I have setup proftp with a mysql auth on a debian box. When i save files or try to modify them i get an error. Ie i dont have permission. When i look at the permissions for the files, it has a 2001 user permission and a ftpgroup as the group permission.
I want it to be ftpuser and ftpgroup with readable and writable permissions for the user and group. This is my second proftp box and i basiclly copied the config files over from the old box.
look at this : Uploaded with ImageShack.us how can set permissions in linux like this? I want one user can delete files but can't modify them and ... in linux i have 3 group to assign read write and execute them. is ntfs flexible than linux file system?
how do i give full permissions to my account? At the moment i'm logged onto root so i can create files / folders in my LAMP folder (/opt/lampp/htdocs) i've right click on the folder and gone to the permissions tab and give the ownership to my account (Kevin) but it still doesnt let me create files or folders? i just want to give my account full permissions to every folder!

I used to be able to mount windows hds just fine in any of the linux distros that I've used ..

Also..I can't seem to find "Computer" under places :/..whats up with that
i would like to have all my ntfs drives mount @ start up here is the command im currently useing sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/D -o forcei have made the folders D E F etc now i know that the command for starting restarting and stoping samba changed in 10.04 so did something change with mounting ntfs drives
Curently i am using lucid.Also I have installed maverick in my virtual box for my testing purposes.In lucid i can see all my NTFS drives but in maverick(which is installedn virtual box)i cant see any of my NTFS partition
I use Ubuntu 11.04 (gnome) and have a ntfs partiton that shows up in the "places" menu that is normally in the gnome panel. But I think that partition isn't mounted till I click on the entry in this menu (when I want to access it from any other place, shortcuts for example, that doesn't work). How can I correctly mount all partitions I want on startup? Recently I tried something in the /etc/fstab file but don't know if this is correct...
I am currently running Ubuntu Studio (a variant of Ubuntu 10.10), dual-booted with Windows 7. For convenience's sake, I have three partitions - one for 7, one for Ubuntu, and a third shared partition, for all of my non-OS-specific media, documents and programs. I am using RhythmBox Media Player, and have it pointed at a folder on the shared partition as a music library.
However, every time I boot, I have to re-mount the shared partition, which requires re-entering my login password. In a similar vein, when I'm installing programs in terminal (doing 'sudo apt-get install [x]'), I have to re-enter my password each time I do a sudo command. Is there any way to keep super-user permissions until I choose to drop them myself? Better yet, can I make it so that logging in as the admin account automatically instates super-user privileges?
I am using centOS-5, I have mount NTFS drive by using fuse. But there is no rights and even there is no option on right click to make new directory or to del any file or folder. This is line of fstab for NTFS drive
How can I get full access and control on this NTFS mounted drive.
I have a computer that's booting Ubuntu 9.10 from the first of 4 drives. The other 3 drives are formatted as NTFS. Is it possible for my 9.10 to share the NTFS drives to the network so my other network users can access my NTFS drives while I'm booted to 9.10?
I have what may appear an odd question. I have never installed Linux before, but I'm very impressed with the Ubuntu philosophy and this forum so I thought I'd give it a shot. I have a Windows wifi network at home with three laptops: One is Windows 7 and the other two are running Vista. My wife uses the Windows 7 laptop and I am using one of the Vista boxes, with the other one currently running in a spare room. I'd like to use the Vista box as a NAS (for our photos, backups, etc) but I need to keep Vista on it for a variety of reasons. Just hooking up the USB drives to the Vista laptop and sharing them out isn't really the way I want to go, and besides it wouldn't let me install Linux...
What I'd like to do is install Ubuntu into VMWare Player or VirtualBox and have it share out the USB drives on the network. The drives are NTFS and I'd like to keep them that way, because I'd like the flexibility of being able to plug them directly into one of our laptops if need be, or access them from the Vista host OS. I understand I'll need to install SAMBA to get this shared out, and I found a tutorial for that so I can try that out. I did download and play around with FreeNAS, but it has lots of issues with NTFS corruption whereas Linux has the NTFS driver for a few years now. I haven't tried an Openfiler appliance yet but that may be a plug-and-play option as well. My questions are:..........

installation of ubuntu before updating process because on lost audio sound due to drive issues ect.all 2 hard drives were recognizable. want to put them on my desktop. After upgrade that are not visible only if in type sudo fdisk -1

I'm using windows 7 now and I want to install ubuntu as the main OS to the current C:drive(which has installed windows currently) but with keeping the data in other ntfs drivers(D:, E:, F: ) on my hard disk. I can't take backups of all data in other drivers and if that data erased with ubuntu installation I will face a very big problem in future. So how to install ubuntu 10.10 only for a one drive(c: drive) without erasing the data on other ntfs drivers? and I uses nvidia 8 series graphic card and are there any special things to follow to install it's official linux drivers(.run) or is it enough to use default drivers on ubuntu.
I have a dual boot setup with a fair amount of files in my windows volume. I noticed that the Ubuntu 10.4 GNOME version (at least) does not auto mount my NTFS drive. Of course as I have seen from various post this gets annoying when opening up a program that loads previous files before I for ex, click the '110GB FileSystem' icon from Nautilus or similar...that seems to mount it for me then... I want my 110GB NTFS volume to mount automatically so I dont have to do this process everytime I reboot.
I found a post on the forum (the latest one I could find) below that recommends installing ntfs-config. The post is from May 2008 but mentions 10.10 (via edits) so I'm confused and wondering if there is an easier/default way..or this is still the way to go? After several screw ups editing system files manually, Im very cautious about doing it in this case because its a work computer and frankly the uninsttall or editing the fstab manually worries me.
I have 2 drives mirrored via windows software raid and I plan to toss the drives into an Ubuntu server soon where they will also be mirrored. The server will have another drive for booting. What is the best way to get these mirrored drives into ext format while preserving my data? I plan to use software raid in Ubuntu as well. My only idea is to format a 3rd drive as ext and copy all the files over, seems inefficient though.
From a Win 7 client, I can copy/create/delete any files on any share on the Ubuntu Samba server so long that is part of my nix file system which is all ext4.This box also has and NTFS partition on it primarily for storage. I can copy/create/delete anything on this partition form the same Win 7 client with the exception of Quickbook save files.I have scoured the web looking for anything close to this but have yet to find anything that looks similar. Not lloking for a direct answer but if there is anyone else that has issues copying specific types of files to a Samba NTFS partition.
On my system have to partitions instead of ext4 and swap, that is ntfs partitions and have two account one is sysadmin and my name csmct. Sysadmin have admin power and csmct is a user account. If I login ed as user csmct. I cant able access those ntfs files. Ubuntu asking me for the sysadmin password authentication. How can I access those ntfs partitions with rakesh password. For frequent access I changed both passwords to same <snip>
