I hope this hasn't already been asked, but how in the world can I mount NTFS with write support if it's an external USB harddrive. My ext. drive doesn't show up in fstab.
I also made udev rule for my joypad
Hey Great HOW-TO Helped Big Time One Question Though Anyone Know What umask You Need for User Write Access?
You will need uid and gid to set permission.
uid=1000 will set the owner to you
gid=1000 will set the group to your group
umask=002 eq rwxrwxr-x
umask=022 eq rwxr-xr-x etc...
Wait, so can I write to my Windows disk from Linux now that I can access it?
In specific, could I add songs to it and torrents, so that I don't have to use room on my Linux HD(which is 20 gigs as opposed to my Window's 80 gigs)?
I just tested the new ntfs-3g and it is indeed working much better!
I had prepared the debian packages to install it, but I see someone already did that
So, I don't know of what to make of this How-To, since it is now superceded by the new one.
So, for anyone still using this, please try the new How-To avaiable at: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=217009
