I recently wiped my hard drive and installed everything from scratch. My disk includes, and previously included, partitions for:
d)documents to be shared between OSes (fat32)
Now, my problem is that this time I created the FAT32 partition after
installing Ubuntu, so there was no fstab entry for it. Before, I had the fat32 partition before
I installed Ubuntu, so fstab created an entry automatically. I can still manually mount it, but it's a pain. Anyway, I added an entry to fstab to mount it to a folder called "osshare" in my home directory, which worked, but now it has root ownership (so I can't write to it), and it doesn't want to let me change it. I've tried to change ownership by "sudo nautilus" and using the GUI, as well as "sudo chown jman /home/jman/osshare" via bash. No dice. It unceremoniously gives me the message, "Sorry, couldn't change the ownership." Here is what my fstab reads after editing. The line I added is the very bottom "/dev/sda4" one. Any ideas? Bad mount options?
