View Full Version : [ubuntu] Permission problem with mounted HFS+ disk

March 14th, 2010, 07:05 AM
I have an external USB drive, formatted as Mac OS Extended, that I mount at /mnt/arca using the following fstab entry:

/dev/sf2 /mnt/arca hfsplus user,noauto 0 0

Mounting goes OK and I can move files into the /mnt/arca directory using Webmin file mananger.

However, /mnt/arca belongs to root (uid=99). If I try to chown it to myself (uid=1000), it reverts to 99 upon execution of the mount command.

I have tried to add gid=1000 to the options above, but the same happens.

How can I mount the external drive so that I have write/read privileges on it?
