Debian :: Mount Permissions On External HD?

Nov 13, 2010

I have a debian machine with an external harddrive. I have a windows machine on the same network from which I can read the files from the debian drive, but I cant write to it.
At some point in time (several months ago?) I could.

currently, I have this line in my /etc/fstab: /dev/sdb1 /media/MUSIC/ vfat user,uid=1000,gid=1000,rw,umask=000 0 0

and i've tried a hundred different mount commands (but not as many as i've tried fstab lines) but generally have been using this at start up: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/MUSIC/ (i am under the impression that i should not have to use 'sudo' when doing this, since the fstab line includes 'user' but if i dont, the command fails)

no matter what I've tried, the permissions come out as owned by root: drwxr-xr-x 905 root root 163840 2010-10-17 17:45 Music attempting (as root) to change ownership of the directory also does not work: chown: changing ownership of `/media/MUSIC/': Operation not permitted (because its a FAT file system, i think)

General :: Mount External USB Drive In Debian To A Mount Point Based On The Volume Name

May 5, 2011

How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.

This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).

Debian Hardware :: How To Mount Set Permissions On New USB Hard Drive?

Jul 17, 2010

You know the great thing about having a debian system is that you have to reinstall so rarely you miss all the new changes that happen in the system until you have to do something like install a new piece of software and realize that fstab has been turned into spaghetti and you no longer have the slightest idea what is going on.I just got a new 1TB USB2 drive to use for backups. I plugged in it and it was recognized fine but it was formatted in NTFS which I didn't particularly want so I reformatted it as ext4FS. It automounts fine but only with all permissions set to root. I tried doing a direct chmod on the drive but that wasn't recognized. Where in the hodgepodge of HAL settings and whatnot do I set it to make the drive user accessible and mount to somewhere other than /media/disk?

Debian Configuration :: Permissions & Fuse - Mount A Remove Filesystem Onto Own Server

Feb 10, 2011

I'm trying to mount a remove filesystem onto my own server. I am able to do this, however I can only access it as root, or if I chmod 777 the lot. Obviously I want to be as secure as possible, so I'd like to avoid either one of those options. Another option is to mount it directly into my home directory, but previously when I was trying out Ubuntu this caused Samba problems - and I was advised mounting in my home dir was a workaround rather than a proper fix.

I have root access with sudo on my own server. I've not set a root pasword, and until I need to I'll avoid it. I have a user account with full control over my own home directory on the remote server. I am mounting using fstab - sshfs#username@remoteserver:/media/sdk/home/username/ /media//remote/ fuse user,idmap=user 0 0

What I would like to do is without changing the permissions on the remote server change the permissions when they are mounted on my own server. I would like them to be in the group sambausers for example. Instead they are owned by root and in the group of 1024 (which I have not set). Additionally for this to work they would have to have 770 on my home server and 700 on the remote server....

Debian :: Mount Any External Volume In Thunar?

May 27, 2011

I am running wheezy + xfce. When I attempt to mount any external volume in Thunar, I get a message saying "Unable to mount-- not authorized." This is problem #1. A bigger problem that I think is related is my wireless. Logged in as a normal user, I cannot connect to any wireless networks using network-manager. My wireless card is functional and I can see all the networks around me, but when I click on one to connect, nothing happens. No password prompt, nothing. Strangely, when I log in as root, wireless works flawlessly. I am a member of the netdev group.

Debian Hardware :: Auto-mount External 2.0 TB (usb 3.0)

Jan 29, 2015

I bought a new external HDD - a Seagate 2 TB (actually 1.8 TB) but am unable to mount it. The drive is USB 3.0 while the ports on my system are USB 2.0 but that is NOT the issue. I am able to see the HDD without an issue on the CLI. I am on Jessie 64-bit.

Code: Select all$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 0bc2:ab24 Seagate RSS LLC
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

[Code]....

My question is why it does not automount. Also if I should try to manually mount it, how should I go about it ?

I got the disks pre-formatted in around 500 GB (or as close to it) multiples as can be seen.

The other question is why does /dev/sdb4 show some different dialog than the rest ?

Debian Hardware :: Format And Mount An External HD?

Dec 13, 2010

Santa brought me an early Christmas present: a new External HD - Verbatim CLÖN - 250GBPlug it in and it works great. Problem is this: I do not use Windows at all just Debian Squeeze and this thing is formatted FAT32 - an ancient format.I would prefer EXT3 or maybe NTFS to be compatible with Windows "IF" there is a need (cousins etc).However as soon as I format it to NTFS or Ext3 it becomes "root" only.This is my HD, how can I format it and keep permissions for myself?

A friend suggested changing /etc/fuse.conf
# Set the maximum number of FUSE mounts allowed to non-root users.
# The default is 1000.

Debian :: Mount Multiple External Hard Drives ?

Dec 20, 2010

How to mount multiple external HDD's. I'd like to link or mount the music, torrents, and general files from several external hard drives and apply permissions (in some cases I only want the mount or link to be read only).

My setup:
- Seagate Dockstar running Debian squeeze (it's headless so I don't have a gui running)
- Two external HDD's with one partition on each (250GB and 400GB)

What I'd like to accomplish:
1. Mount the external HDD's to /media/HDDs as read/write (this is already working using udev and autofs and it's available in samba)
2. I'd like the MUSIC directories on both external HDD's to show up under the same mount point. In other words I want the MUSIC folders (from both HDD's) to appear as one large library of music. And I only want this to be readonly. It will be used as the library for mpd and/or squeezebox.
3. Mount a directory used to download torrents to. I'll probably pick on HDD as the target for torrent dowloads. But let me know if you have any other ideas regarding this.

Since I have the first one done, how would I accomplish 2 & 3?

General :: Setup Fstab To Automatically Mount NTFS Partitions - GUI To Set The Mount Permissions?

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.

1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?

2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba And External Drive - Unable To Mount Location - Failed To Mount Windows Share - Dialog Box

I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04.

After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop

Slackware :: External HDD Permissions - Read Only

Apr 6, 2011

Yesterday, I bought a 1TB WD Passport, for backup and storage. It uses NTFS, and I've had no problems manually mounting and moving files to and from it from root. However, I don't like having to be root to in any way modify the data on the drive. In order to avoid this I decided to create a line in fstab that would allow permissions to the user, so I added this to my fstab:

Code:
/dev/sdb1/mnt/external ntfs defaults,
noauto, noexec, user, uid=1000, gid=users, umask=0022, nls=utf8 0 0

This allows me to mount, unmount, and peruse the external HDD - however, if this is active, neither the user NOR root have permission to make any changes. The HDD acts as read only, even though there is no "ro" option on my fstab.

Ubuntu :: File Permissions For Copied Files On External HDD?

Mar 24, 2010

I'm sure that the issue I'm having is easily solvable once I gain some understanding about copying files - and file permissions in Ubuntu. Here's my situation:

I have an external HDD where I like to back up some files (I mess around with distros on my main machine and feel less stressed knowing the important stuff is backed up). I have an ext4 partition on the external drive where I have copied files, both through the terminal (cp 'filename' /dev/sdc3) and by drag and drop (gnome-terminal).

The problem is, once the files are copied, most are inaccessible. I can view them, but some directories and individual files say I do not have permission to open them. Others are accessible. This is from the same user profile that copied them.

How do I see what's going on? More importantly, how do I make files on external drives available to any user or OS (that can handle ext4)? I want to make sure that if my whole system gets effed that I could still do a reinstall of my OS and then access those backup files.

Fedora Hardware :: External Drive Permissions - Error While Copying

Aug 7, 2011

I've got two external drives that are using ext4 that for whatever reason, I just can't seem to write too. I've changed the permissions on the drives using chmod so the permissions are "drwxrwxrwx". I can even right click within the drive and click "Create New Folder" but then it tells me, "Error while copying to "sdc1". The destination is read-only." I thought the destination permissions were setup so anyone can read/write to the disk? I haven't been using linux that long and have only recently started to feel comfortable to move over all of my stuff to Fedora.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Default Permissions On External NTFS Partition?

When my external USB-HDD with NTFS auto-mounts, the default permissions are set to drwx------ 1 userid users. So only I have read-write but all others have no permissions at all. This is annoying because I have pictures on this drive that I share via an apache web server running as wwwrun. So I wonder how I can change the default permissions to something like rwxr--r-- so that apache can access the pictures?
