Re: File Permissions for a partition
If it's just for you you, you can change the ownership with the chown command. In a terminal:
If it's for everyone, you can use chmod. In terminal:
sudo chown <your user name> /media/bigd
The chmod option will give read-write-execute permissions to everyone -- not always the most secure option.
sudo chmod 777 /media/bigd
There are probably some GUI ways to accomplish this, but I haven't used Gnome or KDE in so long, I can't help you there.
You can also edit your /etc/fstab file -- search through the "Tutorials and Tips" forum for some good examples of how to edit /etc/fstab.
The mark of an honest man ... is that he means what he says and knows what he means.
