A recent update must have borked my permissions of changes how USB drives are mounted and accessed. .
I try and write to a USB drive and I can't.
If I kdesu konqueor and navigate to /var/run/media/flamebait/(usb drive name) I can't change permission. That is I try to change the permission and the permissions don't stick.
I make myself owner of the drive and set group to users. That sticks. It says owner can read and write but when I try and copy a file it says it can't.
I tried on various drives. Same results. This was working just fine before without these gymnastics art all. Now it doesn't.
How do I fix this?
