Unable to access encrypted partition after install (acl,user_xattr,nofail 0 2)

Installed openSUSE with an encrypted partition in /mnt/testing

/etc/fstab as below

/dev/mapper/cr_mnt_testing    /mnt/testing          ext4       acl,user_xattr,nofail 0 2

Upon reboot, the encrypted partition is mounted but I (as a normal user) cannot write into it.
Confirms that the partition belongs to owner (root) and usergrp (root).

**
What should I change to fstab ** or **what should I change my user profile/group **
so that I (as a normal user) can write into it?

For an “ext4” partition, you should only need to change the owner of the top directory of that partition, or change the permissions.

As root


chown your-normal-user-id  /mnt/testing
#### or ####
chmod 777 /mnt/testing

You should decide on what permission/ownership you really need, and use that rather than what I suggested.

Same as for a normal non encrypted partition partition in any Unix or
Linux. You can change the permissions of the mounted parent directory,
or create a new directory inside owned by your user (preferable).
