View Full Version : [ubuntu] Openning Files on NTFS partition from Ubuntu aps e.g. gFTP

February 21st, 2009, 08:30 PM
Hi, this is probably the sort of question that only idiots ask but I can't see how to do it.

I have installed gFTP and it shows my local drive fine, and it connects to the remote server fine.

But the files I want to use 'locally' reside on the NTFS partiton that holds by XP installation.

In Nautilus I can see this partition fine and can open files on it.

In programs such as Opera I can see the partition fine and open files on it.

But on some apps, for example gFTP, all I seem to be able to navigate around is the local Ubuntu partition.

I've tried mounting the partiton using ntfs-config but that doesn't seem to make any difference.

Any ideas welcomed, thans.

You should be able to browse to it's mount point just like any other folder on the file system.

For example say it's mounted at /media/disk, then just point gFTP there.

So that's where it mounts it.

Thanks very much.
