permissions dialog in kde
I'm in the process of setting up an old hp latop with linux for someone with zero linux knowledge and I'm trying to do it in a way that doesn't scare them away back to windows.
It's now got Slackware 9.1 installed and is running KDE for it's desktop environment. I have successfully adding an icon for a floppy drive and can easily mount, unmount read and write files to a DOS disk from the desktop. The problem is that I keep getting this annoying dialog box that reads: unable to change file permissions every time I drag a file to the floppy's directory. This message seems innocuous since the files can be moved back and forth, and a windows machine doesn't care about permissions and ownership. I've tried tweaking the /etc/fstab file but that doesn't see to work. Here's the relevant line:
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,quiet,rw,users,umask=0000,gid=users 0 0
Since I am always flapping about how much better Linux is than Windows since it doesn't do all of the annoying crap all the time that we all love to hate about Windows, I want to get this system running as smoothly as possible. Any ideas?
