I just installed Leap 15.0 and everything went fine (great job, opensuse
One issue, however remain: I have two extra partitions, one a NTFS the
other a FAT, mounted as /windows/C and /windows/D respectively.
I do not care about the NTFS partition, but I do about /windows/D as it
is for exchange of files in this double boot machine.
The issue is that the /windows/D partition is not owned by me anymore,
but by root (and group root) which means that as a user, I can only read
I do not seem to be able to change ownership using the dolphin interface.
I can type the new user and group but then it says that there are not
From a long time ago I had never problems writing and reading from the
user account without doing anything between installs, so not sure how
this situation has arisen.
As always, ownership for NTFS is faked by linux, based on the mount command. You probably need to edit “/etc/fstab” to change this. In my case, I use “uid=1001” as one of the option parameters. This makes user 1001 the owner. Check “/etc/passwd” to match numeric uid with user login name. Or I think you can use the login name there, too.

Yes, automounted. The only thing difference in this install was that I
could not import the mount points, so I added them by hand. Maybe the old
mounting point procedure imported not only the points, but something else?
Here is the /etc/fstab
Thanks for your help.
In the “fstab” entry for “/windows/D”, change that “defaults” to the options that were used in your 42.3 install.
I changed mine to “noauto,users,uid=1001,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8” which I copied from the 42.3 “fstab”. In this case, the “uid=” and “gid=” are probably the most important parts. The “noauto” is because I don’t want that automatically mounted.
