Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm a linux novice running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an Acer One netbook which I would like to use to control my music system a Logitech Squeezebox Touch via Logitech Media Server.

I am struggling with permissions I understand.

My music is stored on an NTFS format WD Elements USB hard drive which is happily seen by the OS upon attachment.

From my reading I understand that the LMS has not been given permission to read from the disc as it is recognised by the OS as a different user to my logged in id.

This link: http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/Music_on_Linux_USB_hard_drives guides me to Fstab to firstly unmount th usb then give the lms permissions.

I can't get it to work.

Can anybody help?

Thanks

Stuart
