well, if you need to get root access to do something like that run "gksudo(insert app here)"

I have Ubuntu 8.10 installed with Kubuntu as well after i installed it, (use Gnome though for personal reasons) so I use nautilus, so in my instance when i need to share something my user dont own, or modify something etc i run the command "gksudo nautilus" and that instance of Nautilus has root privliages

as for modifying files on my G1 i have not ran into a reason to do that yet so i will have to test that, but i can confirm that using an SDcard reader allows you to read/write to any card inserted without using root access, that i have done

Edit: just realized you were prob asking him to post his "mount" output, hopefully my working one will possibly shed some light on the situation

/dev/sdi1 is my G1

also I can delete and edit files on my sdcard that is mounted via the G1, just tested it

It's a fat partition so any permissions you set will disappear after you umount it.
All permissions will go back to rwxr-xr-x (755)

here is a possible solution for you
i used it for my palm pilot )must have handspring visor emerged

# /etc/conf.d/local.start

# This is a good place to load any misc programs
# on startup (use &>/dev/null to hide output)
# make palm pilot nodes at boot
mkdir -m 0755 /dev/tts
#KERNEL="ttyUSB[0-9]*",NAME="tts/USB%n",GROUP="wheel",MODE="0600"
mknod -m 0666 /dev/tts/USB0 c 188 0
mknod -m 0666 /dev/tts/USB1 c 188 1
ln -s /dev/tts/USB0 /dev/pilot0
ln -s /dev/tts/USB1 /dev/pilot1
mknod -m 0666 /dev/sda c 188 0
mknod -m 0666 /dev/sda1 c 188 1
ln -s /dev/sda/ /dev/sda
ln -s /dev/sda/ /dev/sda1


this creates a PERMANENT symlink in /dev so you don't have to keep plugging and unplugging and don't need to guiess which one it is using since both are created and it will mount on whichever it needs and away you go
i just tell my sony clie to sync with Jpilot and press the hotsync and away it goes
give it a shot

i use Gentoo, latest build, i think 2.6.27-r7. not CERTAIN
i know i know.

A few notes

People who build their own kernels and are only seeing /dev/sdX where X is a letter, and not /dev/sdX1 as well, may be missing a kernel option that is required.

Assuming your linux sources are in /usr/src/linux/
Look in /usr/src/linux/.config:

grep CONFIG_SCSI_MULTI_LUN /usr/src/linux/.config

What you should expect to see is:

CONFIG_SCSI_MULTI_LUN=y

If you do NOT see that, if you see it something like this:
# CONFIG_SCSI_MULTI_LUN is not set

Then you need to open that file in your favorite editor and change that line to:
CONFIG_SCSI_MULTI_LUN=y

Rebuild your kernel, install it, and reboot. That should start showing you /dev/sdX1. The reason behind this is there are two different devices really present in the g1, the main memory on the actual phone, and the microsd card. If it only probes a single LUN, then it only gets the phone (/dev/sdX) but doesn't find the microSD card (/dev/sdX1).

As for bigjohn...

I'm not sure what the automounter is doing, it's annoying it is not mounting it editable in your username...but you certainly don't want to reformat..you just want to mount with a user option:

sudo mount -t vfat -o uid=`echo $USER` /dev/sdX1 /mnt/g1

where SDX is the device that appears in dmesg when you plug in the g1

root or reboot :)

i had the same tubs as windows did not want to mount my
tmobile austria g1 at all after the 1st android core update.

so i tried it with my ubuntu 9.04 livecd and had similar errors
as described above, unable 2 mount, unknown partition table etc, and
i did not want to bond and suck arround with all those logs, so
i just opened the chasis of the g1, put it away accu power, after half a minute i put the battery in, booted the g1 (htc dream) again, and
like magic, the ubuntu scripts (god bless them) made me even an icon on the desktop for the usb data on my g1 after i clicked @the phone 2 provide data on memory 2 computer, and then i successfuly saved a cool funky mp3 file to my g1 )))
