NTFS doesn't support the execute permission because it's designed for Windows, which doesn't have the same concept of "executable" files as Linux does. If you're trying to run Windows .exe files in Wine, it should still work if you run wine explicitly, like this:
If you do need to execute files directly, you can set the permissions that will be applied to all files with the
fmask option in
/etc/fstab. You may also need to add the
exec option if that's not the default for NTFS (I don't have a drive handy to check right now). The value for
fmask tells the driver which bits to turn off, so, for example, to allow read, write, and execute for all users, you should have something like this:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults,exec,fmask=000 0 0
If there's already an
fmask option, the simplest way to turn on the execute bit is to subtract 1 from any digit that's odd.
If you don't know how permission masking works, the basic idea is that the read, write, and execute permissions are represented by the values 4, 2, and 1 respectively. You can add them together to combine permissions so, for example, reading + writing would be 6. The permission mask is a combination of three digits that apply to the owner, group, and "others" (everyone else).
Just remember that
dmask) in fstab are the permissions you want to turn off.
As a slightly more interesting example, this would set the permissions to "rwx" for the owner, "rx" for the group, and "r" for everyone else:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults,exec,fmask=023 0 0
