NTFS Mount, can't read by other user


Hi,
I have a problem, which is...

I use Ubuntu Desktop

When I mount to my NTFS drive, other user can't read the content.

Command I used under:
Code:
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/winxp
I went to /mnt/winxp with my other user name, I don't have the permission to read all the files, the folder has an x on it.

I recognize that the winxp directory has the permission 500, other cannot read/write/execute it.

Can someone help me with this problem?

Thank you so much

You need to add the umask option to your mount command. 'umask=222' will give you 555 permissions on the drive. You could set it for other permission levels, but since ntfs write-support isn't safe, you should probably keep it on read-only.

You can also set the default user and group with 'uid=' and 'gid='. See 'man mount' for more.
