    Question Can I View windows drive content in dolphin?

    I can see the drive partition inside of dolphin under the device header on the left, I sused to be able to click on it and it would ask me for password, now it wont even give me that, gives me this error
    Could not enter folder /var/run/media/root/Storage.
    If i log in as root i can see the files fine. if i use the dolphin super user also works fine,

    I want to get inside the storage disk and sort through some pictures using gwenview but now that i cant login to access it anymore..

    how do i get the drive to be accessible again?

    You can upload pictures to susepaste as well...

    To your problem:
    Can you please start Konsole and type the following:
    Code:
    loginctl
    What output do you get?

    But if that is your error message:
    Could not enter folder /var/run/media/root/Storage
    then I think you already opened the drive as root, that's why it can't be opened as user anymore.
    You have to "safely remove" it as root first (right-click on the drive in Super-user mode dolphin)

    First, I'm curious
    - What is your openSUSE version?
    - What is your KDE version?
    - What do you think changed recently where you might have changed access permissions?

    Likely the short answer that should "just work," it won't address the fundamental problem...
    Just launch your app with root permissions, eg
    Code:
    kdesu gwenview
    Am curious why the mount path runs through /var/run which is a volatile path and location created once the OS is up and running.

    Because udisks2, which is used by KDE4 and GNOME3, mounts drives to subdirectories in /var/run/media/$USER/ to separate the users from each other.

    That's what makes me believe the OP has already mounted the drive as root in "Super-user mode dolphin", because his error message is about "/var/run/media/root/Storage".
    And that would of course perfectly explain why he has insufficient permissions as user to access the mounted drive, i.e. /var/run/media/root/Storage.

    This quick video I made shows how I mount and view my windows partition from openSUSE. After doing this I am able to mount, access, and write to the partition

    Note - Make sure you click the tickbox beside "Mountable by User" and if you want to be able to write files to the partition, you will need to editt the dmask and fmask parameters. dmask=002 and parameter fmask=113

    the content for loginct is

    SESSION UID USER SEAT
    1 1000 mee seat0

    1 sessions listed.
    inside of super user in the dolphin right click to device gives me and " UNMOUNT" Storage option...do you mean that?

    WORKS great!

    OpenSuse 12.3 with all current up to date updates..
    as for changes?
    I messed allot with samba to get a local network running..I basicly did all the default stuff to get the network to talk to other computers..
    the (OpenSuse) computers are talking through samba for sure now..took me some days to get that to work..mainly cause im coming out of being a strick windows user.

    I like the kdesu trick for sure....that fixes this for me now.
    thanks
