Can't write to VBox shared folder Win7 (host) Lubuntu 12.04 (guest)
I'm posting here cause I have no idea how can I solve my problem...
I'm used to make VBox lubuntu (hosts) and WinXP (guests) and had no problem with it so far. Now trying on Win7 host is pissing me off! But I guess the problem is on some config. on linux, cause I guess it was working before, maybe an update (kernel?) might have messing things up!
Ok, let's go:
Host: Windows 7 Ultimate
Client: Ubuntu 12.04
VM software: VirtualBox
Guest additions: installed
Shared directory: C:\trocas
NTFS folder permissions: Everyone = full control
I'm mounting the shared folder through /etc/fstab like this:
but also tried with gid=1000 and on /etc/rc.local with the command:
trocas /home/lnks/Downloads/ vboxsf rw,auto,exec,uid=1000,gid=116 0 0
sudo mount -t vboxsf -o rw,exec,auto trocas /home/lnks/Downloads/
lnks : vboxsf adm lp dialout fax cdrom floppy tape sudo audio dip www-data video plugdev fuse lpadmin netdev lnks sambashare
The wierd thing is, I can't grant write permissions to the mounted folder with:
No error is returned, but permissions continue to be:
sudo chmod +w Downloads/
dr-xr-xr-x 1 lnks vboxsf 4096 Out 26 17:11 Downloads
All other /home/lnks/ folders have drwxr-xr-x permissions
Can't change owner with:
Only with the mounting commands...
sudo chown root.root Downloads/
Another thing, I can write with Super User:
sudo mkdir /home/lnks/Downloads/test
returns: "permission denied"
Can list an read all files on ~/Downloads/ and cannot write!

Solved using "Auto-mount" option...
