    I'm sorry, I feel really stupid and bad...how can I fix this?

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

    Greate stuff, worked perfektly here on my Ubuntu Dapper/Win XP installation.
    Just 2 points:

    My file with the list of locales is not /var/lib/locales/supported.d/local, but /var/lib/locales/supported.d/en And remember that British local is en_GB.utf8

    Secondly, I have installed my Thunderbird email to share profile on my XP C driver. I know it says beta on the top, but still. Looks good so far... Is this a very risky strategy?

    (Not that the loss of XP is any big disaster in itself. At least as long as I remember to backup my email files from time to time...)

    You are not totally right (we don't use all english), but you're also not totally wrong (local don't show you all the possible local you can use). So i think the best is simply to look at 'locale -a' so everybody will be happy. I'll change that. Thanks

    I think that we reach a point where i can say 'this is enough safe'. If you see the latest posts, people complain more about my stupidity (building problem ) than about ntfs-3g in iteself.
    So it's not not really a risky strategy. Just remember to make some backup sometimes, we never know .

    Hello givré, and many thanks for the fast reply....
    I think we are getting closer...
    owner@Owner-Desktop:~$ sudo dpkg -i libntfs-3g_*.deb ntfs-3g*.deb
    Selecting previously deselected package libntfs-3g.

    Setting up ntfs-3g (20070920-BETA-1) ...
    owner@Owner-Desktop:~$
    So, the next step would be "2. Configuration:" as you described it in your HOWTO ?
    and then follow the rest of the instructions in your HOWTO?


    (givré's HOWTO: NTFS Support)


    PS.: Please, can you check if the following is correct and complete
    Building amd64 kernel and install ntfs-3g for NTFS read/write:

    - get the needed package :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential automake fakeroot debhelper autotools-dev cdbs pkg-config
    -get the sources :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get source fuse ntfs-3g
    - build & install fuse for amd64 :
    Code:
    cd fuse-2.5.3
    dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
    cd ../
    sudo dpkg -i fuse-utils libfuse2 libfuse-dev
    - build & install ntfs-3g for amd64 :
    Code:
    cd ntfs-3g-20070920-BETA
    dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
    cd ../
    sudo dpkg-i ntfs-3g
    - get dependencies
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i libntfs-3g_*.deb ntfs-3g*.deb
    Maybe you will include this in your HOWTO?

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



    installing ntfs-3g to enable my usb hard drive for writing is the easiest thing I've ever installed or added to my ubuntu.

    and the right-click --> mount ntfs-3g / unmount ntfs-3g script is just awesome.


    Thanks!!

    Thanks to your patience, I'm getting closer and closer....It seems there is only the hurdle of access rights left.
    Here is my /etc/fstab
    ##/etc/fstab: static file system information.
    ##<file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

    ##Linux 'Ubunu 6.06'
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/sda2 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
    /dev/sda3 /Storage ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/sda1 /boot ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/sda5 /home ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/sda6 /usr ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/sda7 /var ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/sda8 none swap sw 0 0

    /dev/hda /media/cdrom1 iso9660,udf rw,users,noauto 0 0
    /dev/hdb /media/cdvdrw iso9660,udf rw,users,noauto 0 0

    ##Special "packet writing" devices
    /dev/pktcdvd/0 /mnt/cdwriter udf users,noauto,noatime,utf8 0 0
    /dev/pktcdvd/1 /mnt/cdvdwriter udf users,noauto,noatime,utf8 0 0

    ## Windows 'XP Home'
    #/dev/sdb1 /mnt/Windows HPFS/NTFS ro,defaults 0 1
    #/dev/sdb2 /mnt/User HPFS/NTFS rw,defaults,users,noauto, 0 2
    /dev/sdb2 /mnt/User ntfs-3g rw,defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0
    Then came to #3 of the HOWTO
    3. Time to start :

    If you want to test it right now, just type
    sudo umount -a sudo mount -a
    Here I got these lines prompted:
    owner@Owner-Desktop:~$ sudo umount -a sudo mount -a
    umount: /var: device is busy
    umount: /usr: device is busy
    umount: /home: device is busy
    umount: /boot: device is busy
    umount: /dev: device is busy
    umount: /var/run: device is busy
    umount: /: device is busy
    owner@Owner-Desktop:~$
    The Computer - File Browser shows Icon for User (dev/sdb2)
    When I try to mount it I get the message:
    Unable to mount the selected volume.
    show more details:
    mount: only root can mount /dev/sdb2 on /mnt/user

    I changed the access rights for /dev/sdb2
    owner@Owner-Desktop:/dev$ sudo chmod 777 /dev/sdb2
    owner@Owner-Desktop:/dev$ sudo chown 777 /dev/sdb2
    owner@Owner-Desktop:/dev$ sudo chgrp 777 /dev/sdb2

    And still, I can't mount---see message above.

    What do I have to do next?

    PS.:
    /home/owner/Desktop/Computer.png is a screenshot but I was not able to insert it here!
    Can you show me how to insert a screenshot in here?

    Wrong, it's two separate command, execute them like that :
    Code:
    sudo umount -a 
    sudo mount -a

    owner@Owner-Desktop:/dev$ sudo chgrp 777 /dev/sdb2
    No need to do that, it's could even be problematic. I suggest you to reboot (so you also don't anymore need to mount/umount)

    I'm sure you'll not need to do a screenshot
