Does the rbind parameter be the appropriate here?

comment Partitions mounted with fstab, not opening from Nautilus nor Unity sidebars
Okay, I left just one line for /mnt/bis with the gid, umask and x-gvfs parameters. Just by saving the /etc/fstab file it automatically fixed the entries in the sidebars of Unity and Nautilus.

comment Partitions mounted with fstab, not opening from Nautilus nor Unity sidebars
One of the reasons for mounting directories is that programs such as rsync treat differently symbolic links than mounted dirs. I am testing on eliminating the double entries, though.

Then, they should not appear on the sidebars. I know I can create a .desktop file to still get the desired folder from Unity sidebar, but the non-working icons should be gone.

comment Natural Sounding Text to Speech?
As far as I can see, it only uses cli parameters as input. Is there any way I can get pico2wave to read text from a filename?

comment Mounting a Windows folder with writing permissions in Ubuntu
I had awarded the 100 bounty to totti for the idea or mounting the partition under /root/ (which is working). My current solution uses the hints provided by falconer, ajThapa, totti and yilmi, none of them is working as expected in the original question (protections are not enough), but it is working (users have rw access to their data). All these mentioned answers were upvoted.

comment Mounting a Windows folder with writing permissions in Ubuntu
Currently I have a group to which all local users are attached, and I'm granting write permissions to that group. This solves the “each user has rw access to their own data” but the whole partition and other user's data is not protected.

When remounting I get the following error: Remounting is not supported at present. You have to umount volume and then mount it once again.

... and now all mounted directories are belonging to me (user 1000), from /media/windows to /home/someotheruser/Windows.

comment Mounting a Windows folder with writing permissions in Ubuntu
Well, I can test using mount, however when I find the working configuration, I will want to do it automatically, either by /etc/fstab or by any other means. (With the Ob Question: how do I translate mount commands into fstab parameters?)

Thank you for the chkdsk. There was indeed some corruptions in the NTFS partition, and now I can write to the mounted drive with sudo.
