Exclamation write access for ntfs partitions in opensuse11.0


I can read and write to my ntfs partitions as root but can only read as normal user. I tried to use chmod but to no avail. Please help.

Are you using ntfs-3g or ntfsprogs?
Post command of just running "mount" with no parameters please.

Is it mounted in through fstab?
Post the output for
Code:
cat /etc/fstab
If you are mounting it through HAL, you may need to add your user(s) to the group plugdev.

Thumbs down no success

my system uses ntfs-3g, but as i mentioned I have write access as root but not as normal user. That means my system supports writing to ntfs partitions, only thing I do not have the required permissions. I used "chmod -R o /windows/d/ +w" as su and the system seems to update the permissions but it gets to square one.Maybe I am writing the wrong command. I need the write permission for the entire partition. Please help.

In the options in fstab for this partition add

uid=number1>,gid=number2

Use command id to find those numbers.

Or, alternately, add

uid=your_user_name,gid=name_of_your_primary_group
