As my system is a dual-booting one, and the other operating system I use is WinXP I wanted to be able to write to my NTFS partitions under Ubuntu.
But after installing ntfs-3g I was still unable to write to one partition (my system has two SATA drives. Ubuntu lives on a part of the second one, and I was unable to write to the NTFS partition of the second hard drive). Although the File Browser listed the partition under “Computer”, when I mounted it, it was mounted read-only.
As it turned out, this partition was not mentioned in /etc/fstab, so I added it. It got the same options as my other NTFS-partition, except – naturally – the UUID . The UUID can be found on the volume label of the Properties panel of the partition in File Browser.
I’m almost ready to begin to focus on photo-related stuff 🙂
