I have a question related to
usbmountand the root rights.
usbmount on my Ubuntu (18.04.2 LTS) and it mounts various USB-Sticks to the right folder (
/home/user1/USB) I have specified in the
I can open the folder and view the content in the GUI, but I can't open a media file (e.g. watch an .mp4 with VLC). VLC would open but not show anything.
Checking the folder permissions, it seems like the
/home/user1/USB folder permits
access from root only. If I want to change the owner of the folder I get an error message.
I also tried the suggestions in usbmount + samba permissions, which don't change anything.
Does anyone have any other suggestion how I could access the files?
Here is my
ENABLED=1 MOUNTPOINTS="/home/user1/USB" FILESYSTEMS="vfat ntfs fuseblk ext2 ext3 ext4 hfsplus" MOUNTOPTIONS="sync,noexec,nodev,noatime,nodiratime" FS_MOUNTOPTIONS="uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" VERBOSE=no
NTFS-formatted sticks also don't get mounted, but I think it's better to focus on the other problem first.
