Exclamation Can't mount NTFS


Error:
Code:
Unable to mount the volume Details: Cannot get volume.fstype.alternative
I tried mounting it manually and i got this :

Code:
bash@debian:~$ mount /dev/hdb1
mount: can't find /dev/hdb1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
Then checked if there was NTFS partitions in fstab.. :

Code:
bash@debian:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' 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>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# / was on /dev/sda6 during installation
UUID=694cf778-7a08-4b6c-88ce-ed688b29abbf /               ext3    errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /boot was on /dev/hdb6 during installation
UUID=16781901-4cc7-4fbb-8e5c-70c01d3f2b55 /boot           ext3    defaults        0       2
# /home was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=6a2e0292-f1b8-4c93-a6fc-df89fdc1b030 /home           ext3    defaults        0       2
/dev/hdb7       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
here is mtab
Code:
bash@debian:~$ cat /etc/mtab
/dev/sda6 / ext3 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
tmpfs /lib/init/rw tmpfs rw,nosuid,mode=0755 0 0
proc /proc proc rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
udev /dev tmpfs rw,mode=0755 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/hdb6 /boot ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/sda5 /home ext3 rw 0 0
nfsd /proc/fs/nfsd nfsd rw 0 0
binfmt_misc /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
And its not there, How can I fix this prob?

Did you install ntfs-3g and libfuse2?

Then you should be able to do a simple mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hdb1.

Don't forget the mount point:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hdb1 /mnt/somewhere
