I am not typing one more thing in my console until all the conflicting opinions stop. I think i am just junking up my system with "type this", "type that", change this, change that....

How do i know or learn what is going on, with nobody explaining what im typing, and, does any of the non-effective stuff i have typed into my console need to be undone?

Well first of all did you read all the post carefully or were just trying the commands that were being posted?

Quote:
Also let me know that the directory is mounted on which partition. You can check it by: df -h

Also I would like to see how the filesystem is mount for that type: mount | grep /dev/sdxx or mount | grep /dev/hdxx

sd is for scsi and hd is for ide and where first x will be controller on which the device is connected and next x will be the partition number.
Did you read the above quoted text posted by me in previous post? Did you hear the request from kilgoretrout to paste the output of /etc/fstab ?

If you want to go step by step then be patient and concentrate on one thing first.

And please be more specific instead of posting one linear.

No.

2 unsolved threads, same exact issue. Every post brings me to the same circle-jerk, and no solution. My system seems buggy now.

Im pissed.

Starting over now.

All that can be done by properly configuring your /etc/fstab file. You will do that one time and after that everything will run the way you want it, i.e. the partitions will automount on boot with the appropriate write permissions. But I will need the information I asked for above to show you how to properly edit fstab. In particular, I need to see how your fstab currently looks, and I need to know the linux device files for the partions and the filesystems on each partiton that you want configured.

I'm guessing you have your data on partitions with windows filesystems, probably NTFS. In that case it's even easier as NTFS is a special case. To set write permissions on an NTFS partition, open a console and run:

$ sudo ntfs-config
<enter user password>

A graphical box will pop up entitled "NTFS write support configuration tool". In that application tick the box that says "Enable write support for internal device". That should enable write support on your NTFS partitions. And that will be it for NTFS. In the future, whenever you login you will be able to write to your NTFS partitions.

Edit: I believe you posted your fielsystem as EXT4 while I was typing this. Are you still interested in pursuing this?

This might not work but if u can't write to a external drive make sure your a member of thr plugdev group. I'm pretty sure kubuntu does this automatically though.
Just in case do this
sudo nano /etc/group
look down the file to where it says something like
plugdev::xxx: <-- then add your username to the end of that file.
That's the only thing I can think of ATM while on this stupid train.
