View Full Version : [ubuntu] usb Read-only file system

February 22nd, 2011, 05:05 PM
Hello I install Chrunchbang on my usb stick to try it out. Only problem now is as described above.
I've tried something along these lines from other posts
sudo chmod -R 777 /media/X
sudo chmod - /dev/disk/by-id usb-xx
sudo chown -hR jacko /media/X

Now I'm here because I'm starting to feel the fury only known to computer nerds when they hit a wall repeatedly.
I'm sure I've just missed something small. But I'm too tired at this point, and I have a lot of school assignments in the next three days.

One other thing to try:

sudo chown -R jacko:jacko /media/X

Can you not see the drive as mounted on the desktop?
