UID/GID permission questions (sharing an external drive between users)
So I have a external usb-hd with my files. It's formatted as ext3, all of the files were written to it from ubuntu were I had uid:1000 and gid:1000. Now I'm on fedora where I have uid:500 and gid:500. The removable-device-automount thing mounts the drive with drwxr-xr-x for 1000:1000. But most files are only readable for uid:1000, not even for the group 1000. But anyway, I would like to write to it without causing a mess. I might move back to ubuntu in a month or so, so I don't want to pillage and plunder, I want to solve this like a big boy.
I know I'm missing something obvious.
All the files can be changed to have the same access permission. So chown-ing them all would be an option
