I use auto-mounting of external USB devices, and it works as expected, except that NTFS partitions are mounted with executability flag on. For example:
/dev/sdb1 on /media/Elements type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_permissions)
All normal files are
-rwxrwxrwx on this partition. I am not happy with the
xs. I know I can have it mounted the way I want if I pass the
Now I use Lucid, and suppose it uses some new auto-mounting mechanism (
gvfs-mount?), but I don't really know how the default mounting options can be changed now. Gconf settings in
/system/storage/default_options/ntfs/mount_options have no effect.
So, how do I make
fmask=0111 the default automounting option for all NTFS partitions? (I'd be grateful also if someone explains how the current automounting mechanism works, how to configure it
, and if the default mounting options are hard-coded, what I have to recompile to change them).
I know that I can put a line in the
/etc/fstab and/or mount manually, but this is not the solution I want, because 1) I don't want to edit
/etc/fstab for each and every external drive I use, 2) fstab records appear in the Places pane of Nautilus, even if the drives are not present. The questions is how to change the defaults.
udisks 1.0.1+git20100614 or later gives more sensible defaults for NTFS, the problem which remains is how the user can specify arbitrary mount options.
