I have a downed macbook

I was able to boot with ubuntu 8.10

and mount the mac partition to the /mnt/macosx folder

but I cant copy the files due to permission problems

I tried launching nautilus with gksudo but my root user can not see the files.

How can I go about copying files from the macbook hfs+ to an external drive...so close but yet so far.

Thanks guys.

What permission problem are you having? Could you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

How did you mount the macosx partition on /mnt/macosx?
Actually you shouldn't need to do it via terminal. The System will do it for just selecting the icon of your MacOSX Partition in 'Places'

You don't need any hfsplus package, the linux kernel is able to read hfsplus filesystem.

Last, lunch nautilus with root prilegies running
gksu nautilus

Can you give more detail about how you are mounting the drive?

Don't you see anything with
ls /mnt/macosx
Are you sure that sda1 is your drive?
