i just upgraded my PC from Ubuntu 12 to Ubuntu 14.04 (format and clean install) on a Kingston 60Gb SSD. I have a second hard disc fitted, a 1Tb standard disk that I use for data and backups (separate partitions). There are just two users, myself as administrator and my wife as a custom user. I log on with a password, my wife with none.
We are both members of the group "dad" which has Read Write permissions to the shared data partition, the owner of which is me. I can access the disk freely, whereas when logged on as my wife I cannot? It shows in Nautilus but returns "You do not have permissions to access" or similar.
In Ubuntu 8,9 10 & 12 all this worked easily, but suddenly doing what I'd always done to enable shared access is not working. What do I need to do in Ubuntu 14.04 to enable this simple activity?
