I've added a new disk with a single ext4 partition and I want to use this as a shared multimedia drive
/dev/sdd1 for all users and occasional samba users. It seems to work ok while I am logged in as root, but I can't seem to add rwx permissions for others. I've used nautilus under gksu to change the properties (permissions tab) for the Media Store folder in media/nick but it seems to make no difference on permissions for other users.
Do I have to log into each of those other users, mount the drive with the super user permissions, then change the mount permissions for each users mount point folder? That seems a lot of work to do for each user, especially if it is not permanent. I guess there are lines I should be adding to fstab....
..but to be honest, as a newbie, I've got lost and would appreciate your pointers on a simple how-to guide.
My mount output is below... probably in a mess...

And here is my Fstab:
# /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> # / was on /dev/sdd1 during installation UUID=bafb49a7-48da-4ec0-9ce2-639d831591d9 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # swap was on /dev/sdd5 during installation UUID=58d2c95e-afaf-4adb-9c46-ae0f05af056c none swap sw 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
There is no floppy in the system anymore, so I guess I could delete that without problems.
