I'm new to Linux and am having problems automounting an exFat-formatted partition on a Lacie-disk in Ubuntu 16.04.
exfat-utils and could then mount manually using:
sudo mount -t exfat /dev/sdb2 /media/maria/Lexfat
The exfat disk would not automount, however, so I edited
/etc/fstab (not sure what the options mean, though, so perhaps the problem is there...?):
sudo nano /etc/fstab /dev/sdb2 /media/maria/Lexfat exfat defaults,auto,umask=000,users,rw 0 0
(I tried to get an UUID using
blkid, but this does not list my exfat disk)
Now, the disk is automounted when I startup Ubuntu, but owned by root user.
So I need to give password to unmount it and am not allowed to remount with GUI. I am not allowed to change ownership using
I have transferred files from a remote server to the disk using
rsync, which works fine except that I get
failed to set times-error
I'm guessing that both the mounting and
rsync issues are ownership/permission problems, but I don't understand how to fix it. Any ideas, please?
