I have few HD with NTFS on my computer.
Usually I can see those Hard Drives as devices in the File Manager home (
By double clicking them they are mounted.
I wanted to make sure when they are mounted to be mounted as Read Only.
So following some answers here I edited
Let's take a single example for a line I added in
UUID=5A8469DC8469BAE1 /mnt/D/ ntfs defaults,noauto,user,ro 0 0
I defined my Windows
D: drive to be mounted into
I created the folder
The problem is when I now click on the HD on File Manager I get
Unable to mount location - can't mount file.
Yet if I mount is manually it is mounted and I can see the files in the corresponding folder.
I saw it is a known problem in Ubuntu - https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/error-unable-to-mount-location/7508/6 (Also related - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/56564047). Is that so?
The output of
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/D type fuseblk (ro,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other,blksize=4096,user)
My questions are:
- Is there a way to fix this? I don't want auto mounting but I want that by double click things will be mounted according to the settings in
fstab. Namely NTFS to be mounted as Read Only.
- Is there a better way to achieve this? Namely whenever I double click on a device in the File Manager which is a NTFS partition it will be mounted as Read Only.
