Permission denied in mount /media/cdrecorder from non-root account...


How can I have my non-root accounts be able to mount and umount /media/cdrecorder ( as well as /media/TRAVELDRIVE)?

Currently, I can mount and umount only from root. I want to be able to do this from any user account.

Change the permissions would be my guess.

Hello

You could also add the option "user" to the appropriate line in /etc/fstab to permit any user to mount the filesystem.

For more details on /etc/fstab, read http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Fstab

Have a lot of fun
