    Re: USB drive mounts but user can't write to drive

    I've been having the same problem for a while, and I went for the solution posted here (modyfing the etc/fstub) then I finally went to test it with the laptop of a friend that recently installed Ubuntu 10.04, and on his computer everything worked fine.

    So I checked out the Synaptic packages he had installed by default, and I realized that I had some more that probably were creating some conflicts/problems.

    Now it works again!!

    Here is what i did:

    - start the "synaptic package manager"
    - insert "usb" in the quick search
    - compare your installed packages with the following list (these are the one installed by default):

    usbmuxd
    usbutils
    libusbmuxd1
    libusb-0.1-4
    libusb-1.0-0
    xserver-xorg-video-sisusb
    libmtp8
    usb-creator-gtk
    usb-creator-common
    libmobiledevice0
    libgphoto2-port0
    libgphoto2-2
    media-player-info
    libhpmud0
    hpijs
    hplip

    - remove those packages that have been added by you or that may cause conflicts, in my case I had all the previous ones and I removed the following that I added months ago messing up with my laptop:


    usbmount (yep it sound weird, but now is working properly in my laptop!)
    pyton usb
    usb creator
    gnome pilot


    I hope this example might help some people as I did receive help reading this forum, this is not "THE WAY" you "HAVE TO" follow to solve this problem, but this is just a way that worked for me, and I think is worth to be shared

    My friend was having this issue and the solution was just removing the "usbmount" package. That fixed everything instantly.
