Ubuntu :: Permanently Mount NTFS With Open Permissions?

Jul 25, 2011

I installed a new media drive that I will be using to share with a windows 7 laptop using samba. After days of frustration, I figured out that the sharing is not working because I have to set the permissions for the NTFS drive when it is mounted. Once it is mounted, using chmod, chown or right-clicking in nautilus does not work. As a result, when I try to access the files from my windows laptop, it keeps saying that it can't find the share (due to the permission issue). How do I change the fstab to automatically mount the ntfs drive, and have completely open permissions (read/write/execute by everyone)?

Code:

UUID=28ASDFGF4AABFA4 /media/media ntfs-3g defaults,blksize=4096,umask=0000

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 :: Mount An NTFS Drive With Full Permissions?

Jul 22, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Mount.ntfs And Mount.ntfs-3g Reside Simultaneously?

Mar 4, 2010

Can mount.ntfs and mount.ntfs-3g reside simultaneously?

Whilst accessing an external NTFS drive mount.ntfs takes up a lot of CPU. I am not sure if its mounting the drive using mount.ntfs or mount.ntfs-3g? How do I find out and if they coexist how do I make the default mount drive ntfs-3g?

Ubuntu :: Permanently Mount External Hard-drive

Mar 17, 2010

I've recently started using a 500gb external hard drive for music and backups. It is always plugged into the computer but doesn't always mount at boot-up and I have to dis-connect and re-connect the USB cable. The desktop icon then appears.The fact that it's mount point changes also means I can't share the Music folder on the external hard drive via Samba (WinXP machines say they can't access the folder) and also Songbird 'loses' the tracks.

How do I permanently mount the external hard drive? I assume it will mean some editing of the fstab file? Unfortunately, I've got no idea of what I should enter on there.The external hard drive volume is called 'Music and BackUps' - Gparted screengrab attached.

Ubuntu :: Can't Permanently Mount A Windows Share Folder?

Jan 7, 2011

I'm successfully accessed a local Windows Share folder with the "Places --> Connect to Server" tool, but I can't figure out how to get it permanently mounted so that I don't have to keep logging in every time I boot up. I understand that the solution is supposed to involve adding a line to fstab, but I've tried a dozen variations on it based on various tutorials I've found online to no avail. Is there any way to check and see how the "Connect to Server" tool is doing its magic? Or to make that permanent?

Debian Installation :: Critical Bug Of "mount -t Ntfs" Cause NTFS Partition Broken

May 2, 2010

About dual boot system with winxp and lenny.

Storage information:
1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100
1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133
SATA:WD 1000
2nd primary:DVD
2nd secondary:DVD±RW

Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.

info about lenny setup:
1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap
2.Every partition is XFS except swap.

At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.

Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.

But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.

After many times of trying.
I solved the problem by the following way.
1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0).
2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1)
After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0).
3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot.
windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.

The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.

CentOS 5 Server :: Set Ulimit Open Files Permanently?

May 4, 2011

Newbie here! Our website CMS is a Tomcat webapp, which runs on a CentOS 5.6 release (Final). The webapp needs a permanent increase of the max. open files value. Currently, the site is "crashing" frequently due to continuous "Too many open files" exceptions that eventually will occur when traffic increases.

This is what I've done to try to increase the max. open files value code...

But still, when I log in (as any user, incl. root), ulimit -n shows 1024, not 16384. Am I missing something here? And, more importantly; Will Tomcat be able to open > 1024 files after my changes mentioned above?

(PS: I also tried rebooting, but no difference.)

Ubuntu :: Samba NTFS Write Permissions Only Some Work?

Jan 14, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Any Way Can Have Full Permissions To Modify NTFS Drives In KDE?

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?

Software :: Where Does Store Ntfs Permissions

Jul 15, 2011

From what I understand, linux applies mount options to ntfs. Then if I want to change a file's permissions, I suppose it stores them somewhere on system disk or memory? If a lot files need to have permissions changed in different ways, can this use a lot of space? By the way, in general when I write to ntfs, can I expect any kind of problems when windows accesses the same disk?

Ubuntu :: Assign Permissions On A Partition With Ntfs As The File System?

can assign permissions on a partition with ntfs as the file system. I am aware of editing fstab and setting some basic permissions. What I am clumsily dictating is can you edit permissions of individual folders for specific users in Linux. I have already tried chmod and such

etc something similar to this

Code:
[user@computername user]$ sudo chmod 600 directory

Ubuntu :: Adjust Permissions For Folders And Files On NTFS USB Drive?

May 21, 2010

First off I want to apologize for the fact that the first several paragraphs go into something seemingly unrelated to the subject of this thread. However I want to be sure that those who choose to lend me a hand understand where I'm coming from and why I'm asking that question.I just recently switched from Windows Vista to Ubuntu 10.04. So far I've been loving it mostly. But their is one oddball thing I haven't been able to get working. That is a pair of shared folders located on my NTFS external drive connected via USB2.

The drive was automatically mounted on first boot and has full read/write access for owner (which is my username) right out of the gate. For this reason I assumed I would be good to do this.I've been unable to get it working in Ubuntu. As it stands now I've manually added them to smb.conf, added them to the Samba Server Configuration and finally by right clicking the folder in nautilus and choosing Sharing Options. All with varying resultsAt best it will show the shares under the computer but not allow access. I've also cleared out all of these for those folders to try them individually or in different orders. What I found was that using Sharing Options first gives this error and sets nothing up. But either of the other two will at least show the share albeit with no access.

Quote:'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. Invalid parameter.What I've discovered is that if I use just the Sharing Options from Nautilus on any folder located on my ext4 partition or the internal NTFS partition then it will ask if applicable to adjust the permissions and though nothing appears in smb.conf that it works more or less just fine.Having played with "ls -l" I discovered that by default that ownership of the folders on the external NTFS is set to myself and that permissions are 700. On the ext4 partition ownership is set to myself and permissions on folders 711. The folders on the internal NTFS partition has an ownership of "root" and permissions set to 777

From here I tried to use "sudo chmod" via a terminal to manually change permissions for folders on all 3 partitions and I can do so for the ext4 and the internal NTFS owned by root. But no matter what I cannot for the external NTFS.The main thing is I want to know why I can't adjust those permissions on the external. I'm convinced that something to do with the way USB drives work by default must be impacting this but I could not find a single thing anywhere to confirm this much less to offer a solution.The second thing is that I installed and used mountmanager to automatically mount the internal NTFS and according to that softwares options the setup for both it and the external NTFS are the same. But if that is true then why is the external owned by me and the internal by root and the resulting permissions are completely different?

Ubuntu :: Auto Mounting Ntfs Drive With Execute Permissions?

May 10, 2011

Current when my NTFS external drive is auto mounted, I can't run any executables from it.

If I unmount it and then manually do:

sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/portable

it works fine. Is there a way to make the auto-mount have "full" access so I can run applications from it?

Fedora :: Change Permissions On NTFS Partition?

Jan 24, 2011

I have an NTFS partition that I use to swap file back and forth between Vista and F13. I store school files in there, like documents and text files. When I use Nautilus to access the partition, I am always asked for my root password. This is a little annoying. Is there anyway I can keep this from happening?

I have my Windows partition set up to auto mount with fstab. I can access it fine in the command line and launchers that I created with out the root password. I suppose I could do the same for this partition, but I would like to access it directly with Nautilus if it is possible.

OpenSUSE :: Setting Permissions On NTFS Partition?

May 3, 2010

I've recently installed an OpenSuse 11.2 in what I'd like to be a definitive jump from windows environment.I'm not very confident yet with my linux skills, so at this moment I've yet have both systems installed with a data NTFS partition to store music, movies, documents, and general data that I'd like to use in any of the two systems. The NTFS partition has no writting permissions for anybody except root user, so I can't work anything from my personal user without starting an app like su or login as root. I want to change this by making a group (windowsWriters) where my usual user is included wich I pretend to make the group owner of NTFS partition.

I've created the group and inserted my user into it, but I'm unable to change the owner group nor any permission on NTFS partition or any of it's subdirectories. I've tried to made it through opening dolphin as su (Alt+F2 kdesu dolphin) and through chmod in consolemode logged as root, in both cases the action seems to work correctly and no error is spotted, however when I look again at the partition/folder/file permissions/ownership no changes have been made.

Server :: Samba And NTFS Folder Permissions

Nov 17, 2010

I have a file server setup with samba integrated with swat management. The server isn't a domain controller. The file server is working well with the shares all working correctly except for one problem. I would like the users be able to manage the folder permissions from a windows PC. This can be done from a login as the root user if need be but, the key is that the system be manageable from the windows PC.

I have followed the instructions of multiple how to's but still get and error that access is denied when trying to apply permissions. I am able to search the server for users to add and the names resolve. What are the configurations that I should be looking at where the NT permissions in samba are configured. nt acl support is set to yes and any other acl settings used produce the same result.
