It sounds like you didn't preserve the correct ownerships/permissions when you copied the files. You can check the most important file attributes by logging in to the TTY and using ls -ld $HOME/{,.ICEauthority,.Xauthority} If necessary, you can change the ownership back recursively using sudo chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME If you continue to experience ...

As said in the comments you should always backup your system before updating , creating. Separate home will not help that, you should use an external hard drive or a completely separate internal hard drive, not just a partitioned one. Hope this helps!

To resolve this problem without using Windows, Mount the drive read only, copy the data to another drive/location, Wipe the drive, repartition and reformat it and copy your data back to it. If you need clarification of this process, comment and tell me how it's unclear and I will elaborate.

I mentioned that i installed ubuntu on windows primary partition, that means the windows is removed right now and only the windows loader partition is remained. so there is no windows to sign in and fix the errors!

Reboot into Windows, check your windows partitions for errors, if/when found fix them, that will reset the error bit on those partitions. Shut down windows in an orderly way! Boot into Ubuntu, now you should have RW access to those partitions. Happy Ubunting.

I determined that the best thing for me to do, in my circumstance, was to purchase a new HDD large enough for what I needed. It ends up being more cost effective than a temporary cloud solution or purchasing a BD-R drive and media, and worth avoiding the frustration of USB thumb sticks and DVD-Rs, plus I can get more utility out of it later.

thanks for you continued assistance. I modified the mount call like you showed, and it still throws the same error as before: $ sudo mount -t davfs https://dav.box.com/ /media/user@box/ /sbin/mount.davfs: group davfs does not exist The df -h command you suggested didn't show any additional mounts in /media/user@box/ $ df -h Filesystem Size ...

When you installed davfs2 it should have created the group, so I think the issue is your not a member of the group sudo adduser username davfs2 Then log out and in again. Edit So it seems they have made some changes on their end. This is how I was able to get it setup and working sudo apt-get install davfs2 Then create a mount point sudo mkdir ...

The command you are looking for is fuser. It displays all processes accessing /media/SDD by typing sudo fuser -mv /media/SDD, where the m tells it to look on the given location, the v switches the output to a human readable list instead of just a bunch of PIDs. To automatically kill all processes (!! Use with care !!) accessing the directory, run sudo ...

It seems like what you considered your /home partition never got automounted (at least it does not now). So Ubuntu still includes the /home directory to the root partition /. And of course, as it does not get mounted at boot time, you can not manually unmount it either! So I suppose we have to manually edit your /etc/fstab configuration file. Could you ...

While the accepted answer is correct, you can now mount a folder within a samba share with help from 3 packages: samba-client samba-common cifs-utils These are CentOS base repo packages (sorry, no longer an Ubuntu user so can't check) but I'm confident there's something similar for Ubuntu.

The syntax of your mount command is wrong. That's why it complains and shows you a "Usage" message. Try: mount -t exfat /dev/sdb1 /media/elements Note the space character between the last two arguments.

I have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with the same issue. I followed the above instructions, but stopped after step 3, as it seems that Ubuntu now mounts and unmounts EXFat drives in the normal way. So to be clear, this is all I did, before plugging in an external HHD $ sudo -i apt-get update apt-get install --reinstall exfat-fuse exfat-utils

The best method I was able to find is the fstab entry below for the desired NTFS drive: UUID=473577933B1627FB /media/username/Data\040Drive ntfs nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0 You will have full permissions to the mounted drive. This was done on ubuntu 14.10

The problem is that your SD is formatted with exFAT, which Ubuntu does not support natively. You have to install some extra packages to gain access to exFAT volumes. Please follow this answer here.

It's a bit weird that you need to give proof that something is wrong but anyway, it seems to be a fact of life, so: depending on what you want/need/know, you could: These two together: ping -D -i 2 1.2.3.4 > /var/log/ServerName.log in one minimised terminal and tail --follow /var/log/ServerName.log in the other.

In terminal, type: sudo fdisk -l The command output will show different devices; among them, you will find the one you want do mount. For instance, if it is /dev/sdb1, of type ntfs, you will want to type: sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /media/your-username/ext-drive-folder/ Where the folder /media/your-username/ext-drive-folder/ is a folder you create ...

You can perform mounts at login by using pam_mount. First install the required packages with: sudo apt-get install cifs-utils libpam-mount Then edit the "/etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml" configuration file to declare your mounts. See my post for an example configuration and "man pam_mount.conf" for the general syntax. It will mount all shares every ...

Thanks to the help provided, this is what I came up with. Create a script that checks if your partition is mounted, if not mount it. After the check execute calibre. %f is so that it opens only one window(more) #!/bin/bash if ! grep -q /dev/sda2 /proc/mounts; then udisksctl mount --block-device /dev/sda2 fi calibre %f Copy calibre from ...

I use the same thing, too, like this: Exec=sh -c "udisksctl mount --block-device /dev/sda2; calibre %f" The udisksctl command does the same as if you would click on the drive in Nautilus, so it gets mounted to the standard position as your user. This way it doesn't require some sudo/root password and you are permitted to unmount it later, e.g. from ...

It says that $MFT does not match $MFTMirr. MFT (Master File Table) is a part of the NTFS file system your drive is formatted with. It is like an address book for the system to remember where which files are stored. Because this table is so important, there is a mirrored copy of it. In your case, the original table and its mirror do not contain the same ...

The correct command is: sudo mount.cifs //nas1.local/sharename /mnt/nas1_sharename -o domain=mydomain,username=useronnas1 Use forward slashes (/) and don't use any quotes.

o.k. found it. I should use either: sudo mount.cifs '\\nas1.local\sharename' '/mnt/nas1_sharename` -o domain=mydomain -o username=useronnas1 or sudo mount.cifs '\\nas1.local\sharename' '/mnt/nas1_sharename` -o domain=mydomain,username=useronnas1 both seem to get the user properly.

In my case I used the code highlighted by Oli above and then used the trust_server_cert option in the dav2fs config.

First, why is it un-mounting itself? I've seen filesystems with errors get remounted as read-only before... is it a filesystem error, or does the hard drive actually power itself down or "reset"? Look in your logs and check (/var/log/syslog or dmesg should help). If it's a filesystem error, then mounting it as read-only (mount -o ro ...) should keep it ...

1) please connect the drive 2) open file manager on Ubuntu 3) do you see your drive on the side bar? 3a) if yes right click the drive and select mount 3b) if no close file manager, open terminal run sudo fdisk -l Reopen file manager, do you see your drive now?

You can still mount the drive read only to access your data. Create a mountpoint sudo mkdir media/danny/drive and then mount it as read only sudo mount -o /dev/sda4/ media/danny/drive

I assume you have Windows (maybe 8?) installed on your 4th partition (which is /dev/sda4 to Linux). Windows uses hibernation to fasten up its boot, but therefore stores RAM data and other stuff to its partition on the hard disk. This leads to your errors as Ubuntu can not properly access the drive due to Windows' lock. Boot into WIndows and disable the ...

I think the FS format is in exFAT - a filesystem that I think Ubuntu doesn't agree with all too well (though Windows doesn't mind it). Try placing the format of the SD card as NTFS; I haven't had any NTFS problems with Ubuntu (though I was using 12.04).

All you have to do is take out the usb and plug it back in! That should fix your problem, as for why this specific feature/problem/annoyance exists? I think it is for security reasons.

You're only looking at the the super-easy scripts like ecryptsfs-setup-private and ecryptsfs-mount-private, they use the more "generic" tools you seem to be looking for: mount.ecryptfs and ecryptfs-add-passphrase.

Like the command said, your 5th drive is missing. Either get it working right again, or mount with the -o degraded option to proceed without it ( and the redundancy it provided ).

What format is your drive in? It sounds as though your Ubuntu machine does not recognize the format. NTFS would be best, FAT has worked for me as well, MAC journaled you can read but can't write.

Either of these will work perfectly fine. The differences only affect the path to the folders and files in that partition. As an example, if you wanted to open a file on the Windows partition called file.txt, with /dos as the mountpoint the path would be /dos/file.txt. Using /windows would make the path /windows/file.txt.

I ran into the same problem, because I was running on a virtual box instantiation of ubuntu (guest), but running in a shared folder to my mac (host). Because symlinks are different on the mac, cmake failed. Moving the build directory to a ubuntu only folder (not shared with the mac) solved the problem. Moral of the story- don't build in shared folders that ...
