The ipod is mounted to my desktop automatically and gtkpod can read the db file, etc. I add songs to it but when I go to sync it, I receive an error message telling me that it is a read-only file system.
How can I go about mounting or changing the file permissions for it and what exactly do I type into the command line?
I think what it needs it to be mounted with the "users" parameter. I don't use Ubuntu, and I don't know how to set the mount parameters when it's automounted. Perhaps there's a way to set it graphically? Like right clicking on it, and setting a parameter that way?
According to this it looks like you need to edit /etc/auto.master and set the parameter esers there.
