Opensuse 11.1 used to automount my flash drives, but after I deleted a few programs I thought I did not need, it does not automount anymore. I am able to manually mount my usb flash drive using “sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1
ls /media/sdb1”. I can open files up from my flash drive, but I cannot save anything on to it. If I try to save/copy anything onto it, I get one of the following messages:
“There was an error copying the file into /media/sdb1.”
“The folder “untitled folder” cannot be copied because you do not have permissions to create it in the destination.”
When using OpenOffice:“error saving document: Object not accessible. The Object cannot be accessed due to insufficient user rights.”
I tried chown, but it did not succeed (I am new to Suse, though, so maybe I messed up on chown because I don’t know how to use terminal very well). After deleting some programs I thought I didn’t need, I have been having problems with permissions, accessing the Trash folder, and the computer’s ability to auto-mount CDs upon rebooting and getting to the Welcome screen.
How do I change my use rights/permissions, and will that solve my problem of being able to save things to my flash drive? How to I get Opensuse to automount my flash drives again? Thanks!
