Normal users reading regular NTFS mount.
I am trying to set my rights so i can read my NTFS windows partition. I have it mounted at /mnt/windows I cant read it just fine under root but under my user name I cant view any of the files. It says I do not have the permissions. I used chmod to set it to 777 but I still can not access it. The command i used was chmod 777 /mnt/windows. When i right click and choose properties it says the only permissions that are set are root and root is set to Read Only.

by default the NTFS suport is read only in the linux kernel
u need to set the permisions of that directory where u mount them ,beforehand

I did a search and did find my answer on the boards.

I had to unmount it and then when i mounted it i typed
mount -t ntfs -o umask=666 /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

i tried 644 but it didnt work but 666 did work.
