I've read this: How do I correctly mount a NTFS partition in /etc/fstab? plus lots of other related web pages
My fstab entry:
#Entry for /dev/sdb2: UUID=1C77E5134D44D900 /home/me/Libraries ntfs-3g fs-name=Library,x-gvfs-symbolic-icon=Library,permissions,nosuid,nodev,noexec,uid=1001,gid=1001,rw,umask=22,dmask=27,fmask=137 0 0
This mounts as me correctly in the correct place but there are three issues:
Nautilus, when clicking on "Other Locations", shows the name as 290GB Volume" even though the name in gparted is shown as "Libraries"
Fixed with ntfslabel command
Even though "permissions" is set, I still can't change file permissions in any files as myself or even using sudo.
/dev/sdb2 on /home/me/Libraries type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096)
I would expect it to show my uid although the mount directory /home/me/Libraries shows my ownership. What am I doing wrong? The only difference I see is I don't use
LABEL="Libraries" but use
ntfs-3g fs-name=Library,x-gvfs-symbolic-icon=Library instead.
I changed the fstab line to
LABEL=Library /home/john/Libraries ntfs-3g fs-name=Library,x-gvfs-symbolic-icon=Library,permissions,nosuid,nodev,uid=1001,gid=1001,rw,dmask=27,fmask=137 0 0
Tried these commands:
$ ll temp.QIF -rw-r----- 1 john john 167 Jul 24 2016 temp.QIF $ chmod 666 temp.QIF ; echo $? 0 $ ll temp.QIF -rw-r----- 1 john john 167 Jul 24 2016 temp.QIF
Note that permissions do not change. chmod returns a 0 indicating no error.
