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

    The url: http://ntfs-3g.sitesweetsite.info/ubuntu/ dapper main main-all
    is no longer valid. It gives me a 404 error when I specify it in my sources.list file. Does anyone know where else I can get the ntfs-3g packages from?

    Yep, I got the same error when I tried that repository. But both the other ones mentioned in the first port in this thread worked fine.
    Well... except for what I've mentioned in my previous post (see previous page of this thread)...

    BTW... Does anyone know how to help me with that? Is there anyone else having that problem?

    Thanks in advance

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

    I installed the ntfs-3g and ntfs-config (v.0.5.5) directly in Synaptic (I tried also downloading the updated ntfs-config (v.1.0.1) directly from the site but the problem persists ---> http://flomertens.free.fr/ntfs-config/download.html) .
    I restarted the system and then all the icons of my mounted partitions (NTFS) disappeared.

    What should I do?

    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    #  -- This file has been automaticly generated by ntfs-config -- 
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>

    Not sure if this can help:

    Tried to re mount a partition (it happens also with the other ones) on the desktop but this is what I get:
    Code:
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda5 /home/alain/Desktop -o umask=0
    mount: /dev/sda5 already mounted or /home/alain/Desktop busy
    And:
    Code:
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo mount -a
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation failed
    Unmounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/E0ECE3E5ECE3B3C6 (Programmi (Maxtor))
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation failed
    Unmounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/60BCECE3BCECB526 (Downloads (Hitachi))
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation failed
    Unmounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/34741DE0741DA5A0 (WindowsXP (Seagate))
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation failed
    Unmounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/7A88AFB688AF6EF7 (Games (Seagate))
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$
    Then I checked in the gconf-editor. Then apps/nautilus/desktop and the check volumes_visible is checked-

    If they are already mounted why I can't see the drives on my desktop nor in Nautilus? What should I do?

    Thanks.

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

    Total newb problem. Been through the faq and quite a few pages of this post to no avail. Probably just me being an idiot.

    I went ahead and got it installed ( think I did it properly...), I can still load my main NTFS drive up but it wont let me make a folder, copy paste or delete anything, so it's obviously not working, what'd I do wrong?

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

    Ok. I re-did all the process following the steps of this tutorial (I restored the partition with the backup created before installing the ntfs write feauture).
    I have Feisty so this is what I did:
    Code:
    wget  http://flomertens.free.fr/ubuntu/givre_key.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ntfs-config
    When I run this :
    Code:
    gksu ntfs-config
    and enable both the option in the config I get in the terminal after clicking ok:
    Code:
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ gksu ntfs-config
    
    ** (ntfs-config:7879): WARNING **: Can't find device with uuid = 81410a3d-0907-4857-8e35-f4867c864d78
    
    
    (ntfs-config:7879): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to set text from markup due to error parsing markup: Error on line 3 char 13: Element 'markup' was closed, but the currently open element is 'b'
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$
    I can read/wite on all partitions except on sda5 (why?!?) and once I reboot the system no icon is displayed on the desktop or in nautilus.

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

    Vampire, don't run ntfs-config. Configure it manually (modify /etc/fstab). It's easy and most importantly, it works.
    It's obvious, your problem is from the configuration generated by ntfs-config.

    P.S.: I hope you backed up your /etc/fstab before running ntfs-config...

    Thanks for your reply. I'll do as you said and get back to you once I finished.

    P.S. I have a previous backup image o the entire ubuntu partitions for this cases (I use Acronis True Image (Windows) that is really good in my opinion).

    I did the whole manual process, but when I get to the point of remounting i get:

    Code:
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo fdisk -l | grep NTFS
    /dev/hdb1   *           1        7182    57689383+   7  HPFS/NTFS

    /dev/sdb5            2297       14593    98775621    7  HPFS/NTFS
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ gksu gedit /etc/fstab
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo umount /dev/<your partition>
    bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo umount /dev/hdb1
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo umount /dev/sda5
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo umount /dev/sdb1
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo umount /dev/sdb5
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo mount -a
    mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs-3g'
    mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs-3g'
    mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs-3g'
    mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs-3g'
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ gksu gedit /etc/fstab
    EDIT: since the error...I decided to re-install ntfs-3g (not ntfs-config) with Synaptic. After that I used the "sudo mount -a" command, restarted the system but still the icons of the NTFS partitions are not visible.

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

    I re-did all the steps (and manual method) (after an image-restore) another time (heh..)
    Restarted the pc...and yet no partition images.
    Code:
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo mount -a
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation failed
    Unmounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/E0ECE3E5ECE3B3C6 (Programmi (Maxtor))
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation failed
    Unmounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/60BCECE3BCECB526 (Downloads (Hitachi))
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation failed
    Unmounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/34741DE0741DA5A0 (WindowsXP (Seagate))
    fusermount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
    FUSE mount point creation failed
    Unmounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/7A88AFB688AF6EF7 (Games (Seagate))
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$
    Code:
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$ sudo umount /dev/sdb1
    Password:
    umount: /dev/sdb1: not mounted
    alain@VAMPIRE666:~$
    So...I can't unmount because they are not mounted...and I can't mount them because..."Device or resource busy".
    Today I'm not lucky.

    P.S. Note that this time I followed 100% the tutorial on the first page of this very thread. I didn't install the ntfs-3g through Synaptic (I did it in the terminal as said in the tutorial), and I didn't install ntfs-config.

    EDIT: I just discovered that all the partitions are in /media as directories and I can access them (read/write)....how can I make them look as partitions on the desktop and in nautilus (mount them?).
