How to 'chmod' on an NTFS partition?
I have just started using Ubuntu and I have my hard drive set up with an Ubuntu partition, a Windows 7 partition and a much larger Storage partition where I keep most of my files.
I have been doing some programming and have been putting
a.out into a folder in the Storage partition. When I try to launch it in Bash I got a permission denied error. I then did a
sudo chmod +x a.out, but this did not give any feedback so I tried to launch
a.out again and got permission denied. I tried using the GUI to change
a.out to executable but when I checked the box it unchecks right away.
I did some googling and it seems that the partition itself needs to be given permission to execute. So I did
sudo chmod +x Storage and then I did
ls -l and got:
drwx------ 1 jared jared 4096 2011-09-17 21:03 Storage
When I go back to change
a.out it still wont change.
This is the line from
/proc/mounts for the file system:
/dev/sda3 /media/Storage fuseblk rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096 0 0
I'm sure there is something about permissions I am misunderstanding so if some one could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.
