So I see that this is actually a thing. There are several posts in forums that deal with this subject but none of the solutions that I've tried has worked.
Here is the thing. I have a Ubuntu 16.10 installed alongside Windows 10. There are two partitions that I envisioned as sort of transition rooms for file sharing among OSs. The thing is that I can't seem to make any changes to files on other partitions from Ubuntu.
Solutions that I've already tried:
sudo chmod -Rf 777 /media/user/partitionname sudo chown -R user:user /media/user/paritionname sudo chown -R user:user /dev/sda5 sudo chown user:user /dev/sda5 sudo chmod 777 /dev/sda5 sudo chmod 777 /media/user/partitionname
What I get is the following:
chown: changing ownership of '/media/user/partitionname': Read-only file system
Or something along those lines.
New folder and paste options are greyed out.
What I've already tried is changing every single permission option that I could find to read and change or read and modify.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
PS: I would also appreciate a basic tutorial for solutions proposed :) I'm still learning! Thanks!
