canīt access the newly created EXT3 partition by GPARTED in kubuntu

I just created a partition by gparted as Ext3 by I can change the permissions for the partion .......I canīt copy or create any folder in the partition because of the permission ... I think there are some issues about mounting the partition because I can create files and folders in my old NTFS partitions ... I think I have to change the settings in the system setting --> disk & filesystem but I dont know what to change exactly ... thank you so much for your help
here is a screenshot of disk and filesystem window

Have you changed /etc/fstab as root to reflect the changes in that partition ? If they aren't correct, not only will you be unable to do anything with the partition on boot, but the mount command won't work correctly either, as mount pulls info from /etc/fstab. If you post your current fstab, what partition you changed and what you changed it to, we can point you in the right direction.
