I've been using ubuntu for a few years now, however this is my first time asking a question on the forums so please let me know if I have not provided enough info.
I'm running 14.04 Home on an Intel® Core™ i5 CPU 661 @ 3.33GHz × 4 with 8GB of ram as a media player/server
Currently, I'm trying to get transmission working with the default download directory on an NTFS drive, mounted at /media/paul/Downloads, but keep getting a permissions error within transmission. I have tried chmod & chown, to find out these commands only work on unix filesystems. It's odd, the permissions of the folder
drwx------ when it is mounted, and
drwxr-xr-x when it is not.
I have also tried the following:
- Changed the user in the file
- Applied the same options in fstab as my other writeable NTFS drives:
- Also, tried
rw,noauto,users,uid=1000,gid=1000,permissionsas per this post
- Several combinations of the last three
This is currently what my fstab file looks like:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=463c5639-f937-46c5-b5a7-67de7b49a999 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation UUID=c6621b2e-5383-4031-8bd0-1210e0a79147 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0 /dev/disk/by-uuid/898d19a1-6214-4331-9a53-6318bd104b8e /mnt/898d19a1-6214-4331-9a53-6318bd104b8e auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,noauto 0 0 /dev/disk/by-uuid/EA8CE9698CE930AD /mnt/EA8CE9698CE930AD auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0 /dev/disk/by-uuid/0B181B702141B3B7 /media/paul/Movies auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0 /dev/disk/by-uuid/0E8688030EAF0509 /media/paul/Games auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0 /dev/disk/by-uuid/89cac2d7-665f-4fc7-ac37-ca4df69c5a3a /media/paul/Television auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0 /dev/disk/by-uuid/744EFFFF3AFEC7C9 /media/paul/Downloads auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=0022,rw 0 0
