    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Just want to report that it works perfectly on my Fiesty Dailybuild 20070326 and a Samsung 500GB internal disk.

    Only different I did was to download all files and utils from the repos without adding any additional repo. And then just ran:
    Code:
    sudo ntfs-config
    Much apreciated...

    /dev/sda1 /media/my_ntfs ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0

    Anyone knows how to overcome this problem?

    Best regards
    I'm also having this problem all of a sudden. It had been working Edgy, and has been working for a while in Feisty. Then, a couple days ago (maybe when the 20-13-386 kernel came down?) it stopped mounting at boot.
    My fstab line originaly mounted by UID, I thought this might be the problem, so I changed it to /dev/hda1. Rebooted - no difference. Yet, after I log in and do sudo mount -a my ntfs drive mounts properly - so this meens my fstab line is correct, right?

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Thanks for this easy guide! I did it a little differently, since I'm running Feisty.

    I installed the NTFS Configuration Tool with Add/Remove Progams. It added the NTFS Configure Tool to the Applications Menu so I opened it from there and named the NTFS volume I wanted to use. It worked!

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using the ntfs-3g (easy & safe method)

    This is what I got when I did " sudo apt-get install ntfs-config

    Failed to fetch http://flomertens.keo.in/ubuntu/dist...1.0-1_i386.deb Error reading from server. Remote end closed connection
    E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

    Again when I did a : sudo apt-get update I got this:

    jagannath@jagannath-desktop:~$ apt-get update
    E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13 Permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock the list directory

    What should I do now, please??

    Thanks,

    Sorry people for rushing that previous post of mine.
    I tried a reinstall and it went like a breeze.
    NTFS- config works great.

    Thanks,

    UPDATE

    OK, so I figured out my problem.... seems that the ntfs-3g mount line in fstab must come after the mount line for /usr

    switched around those 2 lines, rebooted, and everything works again

    Sorry, gotta ask a question:

    How do you add in the latest version of Fuse (2.6.0) into Synaptic or do you have to install it via Terminal?

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    if you did
    modprobe -l fuse
    and it returned something than you're ok. if you did it and it didn't return anyuthing that you have to compile it from source per the instructions on the first post. it's not that hard, just read the README file and it'lll tell you how to do it.

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Right. something showed up. However, how do I get Linux to install the Kernel driver of Fuse? The project leader of ntfs-3g explained that because of some issue in Ubuntu, the kernel is NOT installed/updated when you install Fuse. And he further explained that this issue is universal in Linux, so he actually urged me to file a bug report. (Oh geez, my second day of using Linux and I'm to file a bug report.) If you're interested, the thread is here: http://forum.ntfs-3g.org/viewtopic.php?t=428


    Edit: Anyways, I tried to run givre's code but when I typed in "sudo apt-get upgrade" , I got:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    The following packages have been kept back:
    pmount
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

    But I continued anyways:

    sudo apt-get install ntfs-config

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.

    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
    that package should be filed.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    ntfs-config: Depends: libatk1.0-0 (>= 1.12.1) but 1.11.4-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
    Depends: libc6 (>= 2.4-1) but 2.3.6-0ubuntu20.4 is to be installed
    Depends: libcairo2 (>= 1.2.4) but 1.0.4-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
    Depends: libdbus-1-3 but it is not installable
    Depends: libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0) but 2.10.3-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
    Depends: libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.10.3) but 2.8.20-0ubuntu1.1 is to be installed
    Depends: libpango1.0-0 (>= 1.14.5) but 1.12.3-0ubuntu3 is to be installed
    Depends: libxml2 (>= 2.6.26) but 2.6.24.dfsg-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
    Depends: ntfs-3g but it is not going to be installed

    I wonder if there's a solution for this issue. If there isn't, I'm just going to revert to WinXP and get rid of Ubuntu. I've a lot of tasks to work on and having most of my partitions without write access is just rendering Ubuntu near-useless. Heck, I can't even figure out how to transfer my profiles folder into Mozilla and no wait, I can't do that 'cos I'd like to cut + paste the folder, not copy it. @#$#@$

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    i understand your concern but you must not have read one of the posts at that link you gave me. it states:


    However this is definitely not for newbies and it's better if you wait
    until your distribution developers solve it. You may also try ntfs-config
    which should do it for you: http://flomertens.free.fr/ntfs-config/

    so by using the ntfs-config program it sets this up for you. you can always test it out and write some data to a ntfs partition and do some work by opening it inside a program and then resaving it in it's same ntfs location and then email it to yourself on windows and see if it opens and the file is ok. this would work on .txt files or whatever. maybe even save your bookmarks thru firefox to a ntfs partition and import them into windows firefox and see what happens. otherwise if you're not comfortable, than it's always your choice to go back to the $ hungry Bill. good luck with whatever you chose!
