Thread: Unable to mount ntfs-3g partition under regular user

    Default Unable to mount ntfs-3g partition under regular user

    Hey guys,

    I've been recently trying to mount my ntfs drive through ntfs-3g, but I haven't had much luck.



    I'm trying to mount it as user and tell it to not automount. This is on openSUSE 11.0.

    Please help.

    Hmm ... maybe an fstab entry would help?

    Code:
    /dev/sdb1 /mnt/windata ntfs-3g users,noauto,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0
    That \might\ be what you're looking for.

    Yes it will help provided it's not a USB drive which can be handled better another way.

    Are you sure you mean automount, and not hotplug?

    Do you mean that you want to connect, but not have it mounted?


    Or do you wish it to be mounted with ntfs-3g, rather than the default ntfs ?

    For that last case, there is a solution:

    cd /sbin
    sudo ln -s mount.ntfs-3g mount.ntfs

    This will mount all ntfs partitions on USB drives with the ntfs-3g driver,
    in RW.

    I can access my two NTFS drives in KDE but not in GNOME??

    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 28576 2008-06-07 11:09 /sbin/mount.cifs
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 11096 2008-06-07 08:27 /sbin/mount.fuse
    -rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 87864 2008-06-07 11:01 /sbin/mount.nfs
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2008-07-18 17:52 /sbin/mount.nfs4 -> mount.nfs
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 2008-07-18 17:53 /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g -> /bin/ntfs-3g

    I want to have the system detect the drive without it automounting it so that I can mount it as a user so I can read and write to it.

    Do you mean that you just don't want the drive to be mounted, for an
    unspecified reason? Or is it because it gets mounted Read-Only, and you want
    to mount it R/W ?
