i've seen this answer, but it requires the partition to always be mounted (and do the user access via group perms on the root FS that mounted the NTFS)
What i'm hopping to be possible, is to allow only a couple users to initiate the mount of the partition.
I will rarely have need to mount that partition, and leaving it mounted all the time is just asking for trouble on a portable that will be sleeping/waking/and moving a lot.
is it possible? something like:
/dev/sda1 /windows ntfs noauto,user=userA,user=userB,rw 0 0
And ideally, requiring the user the type in the password to confirm. I have no idea what happens on the gui land... but trying to learn. if this was a regular server, i'd simply add them to sudoers with that mount point allowed.
I think ultimately i will just make them 2 administrators of the machine. But i wanted to avoid that.
