HAL and fmask dmask in automounting ntfs-3g drives
My external 'My Book', is ntfs-3g and HAL currently mounts it as drwxrwxrwx root:root , I want to mount it with
I managed to do this using ivman & pmount , but the problem is .. now I can't right click on the drive (in my file manager) and do an umount (as it has been manually mounted)
How do I tell hal what dmask and fmask values to use while mounting ? Preferrably , I would like to use this setting for all ntfs-3g drives.
Googling didn't help much ..
talks about making fmask / dmask as a permissible setting but not how to set it.
Any help would be great. I had put this in Robby's thread but I think everyone has stopped checking it out .. so the new thread.
I can't help you with the other stuff but, I have Western Digital "My Book" and came formatted in vfat.
okos: you should reformat it to NTFS. Using 1TB as FAT is nearly criminal . and anyways FAT doesn't support files > 4GB in size.
Ok I added the following line to fstab :
UUID=<uuid> /media/My\040Book ntfs-3g users,dmask=0027,fmask=0137,gid=100,uid=1000 1 0
This is fine, but I thought that by adding the users option I will be able to mount it as a normal user but I can't seem to. when I do mount /dev/sdc1 as normal used , ntfs-3g says "can't mount as normal user, must be run as root)
thus when I dbl click on the disk in my filemanager , HAL gives a error. Which I don't understand cos I thought HAL ran with practically root privileges.
