View Full Version : [ubuntu] No Mount privilege

November 10th, 2009, 04:20 PM
I am still struggling to make my Karmic upgrade useable...

At first I thought it was only the sound issue that got me - then I fixed it simply by installing ALSA Mixer, which worked until I rebooted, at which point login failed and I had to use STARTX from a terminal prompt.

Now I have hit another one - with Karmic when I insert a USB memory device I am told that I do not have mount privileges and so I cannot access it.

I am considering breaking the UBUNTU design and removing SUDO so that I run as root to get around this.

And I am still without sound....

Any offers of help appreciated - even if it is just to direct me to a HOW-TO that enables me to run as root...
