Hello all, I'm having trouble getting a partition to mount with rw permissions for all users (though, there is only me). There are two partitions that I want mounting on boot, the first is a ntfs which mounts ok with full rw permissions. The second is a ext4 partition.
I used the program "disks" to automount them on boot, so the options were generated by it.
The windows partition mouned ok but the ext4 wouldn't and halted the boot process. I eventually removed "nofail,x-gvfs-show" and the partition mounted but only with rw permissions for root./dev/disk/by-uuid/A4B0266BB0264460 /media/Data auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0
#/dev/disk/by-uuid/8ab85d88-a053-4e2c-a6ac-47268da18bd6 /media/linuxData auto rw,user,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks2 0 0
/dev/disk/by-uuid/8ab85d88-a053-4e2c-a6ac-47268da18bd6 /media/linuxData auto defaults 0 0
I used the "mount" command to find out what options the partitions are actually mounted with, and they aren't exactly the same as those in the fstab, so I tried adding them to the fstab too ... with no luck!
I've also tried changing "user" to "user=slimline"; manually setting the "linuxData" directory permissions then rebooting (they get changed back to "access only" on reboot!); and finally, using only "defaults" as the options./dev/sda5 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro)

I have another linux distro installed too and when manually mounting them it's the same, the ext4 partiton mounts as read only for all except root.
I'm using Ubuntu 13.04 btw.
I'm new to linux (a couple of weeks) and am now at a loss for ideas.
