View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mac user files read permission?

July 14th, 2010, 03:10 AM

I'm a new Ubuntu user, I just installed Ubuntu today and I'm loving it.

But this issue has been driving me nuts all day, I've searched for hours for something like this and all posts were about external hard drives.

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my MBP 13" then dual booted into Ubuntu. I can mount and access my MBP hard drive, but when it comes to the Mac home user files, I don't have permission to even READ.

How can I change that? I tried doing so by dual booting into Mac and changing the folder permissions and also making them shared folders but nothing worked.

I'd really appreciate it.

This great news but I wan to add some more information A Mac OS X system can potentially serve many users. Users are used by Mac OS X to keep track of what belongs to whom and what each user is allowed to do with any given thing file, program, device, etc. on the system.
