I have Kubuntu 12.04.01 installed on partition /dev/sdb2 of my dual boot Computer. /sda1 carries Windows XP, XP Program files and some data files. /sda2 and /sdb1 carry more data, music and pictures, mostly going back to the bad old Windows-only days.
I cannot (and don't want to) access /sdb2 from XP but can access all files from Kubuntu and do most things I want. Occasionally, working in Linux, I can't do what I think I should be possible on files or directories in /sda2 and /sdb1. The restrictions happen whether I created the file in XP or Linux, though they don't apply if I use a directory in /sdb2. I suspect that my permissions are not as they should be.
One such restriction is that, in Dolphin, if I right-click a file and enter Properties>Permissions, any change is successful only for files in /sdb2
My etc/fstab file (expanded for me by someone with much greater experience of Linux) is as follows:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0 # / was on /dev/sdb5 during installation UUID=bcc24647-8a34-46d2-afe6-b0f747c18631 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # swap was on /dev/sdb6 during installation UUID=ef2d585d-bd09-46e0-ad5e-cf63c6cda913 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/sda1 /media/System ntfs-3g defaults,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=0077 0 0 /dev/sda2 /media/Samples ntfs-3g defaults,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=0077 0 0 /dev/sdb1 /media/Audio ntfs-3g defaults,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=0077 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
Is there something which should be altered here, or is there another file elsewhere?
