I have an ext4 partition that I mount using the following fstab line
UUID=41dec246-654d-4e35-9d4e-68150e40c5b0 /mnt/Data ext4 defaults,user 0 2
But then I realized that I can't execute from that partition. I checked my mount options and they were: rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev
So I changed the mount options to be more explicit as follows:
UUID=41dec246-654d-4e35-9d4e-68150e40c5b0 /mnt/Data ext4 rw,suid,dev,exec,auto,user,async 0 2
But the partition still mounts with the same options (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev).
I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 and I'm using UEFI booting. I'm also dual-booting with Windows 8.1
auto,user,execif you need dev or suid or rw add them
