Hello currently using slackware 11.0,i have managed through the excellent guides on here to succesfully mount my usb stick and acess the device but cannot create any new folders or write to the stick,i believe it must be a permission problem somewehre,i have included my fstab output here,iam sure it is something so easy...
There may be better ways to acheive this, but changing the /dev/sda1 line as below will give you access.
You can do the same with the /dev/fd0 line by replacing owner with users and also /dev/cdrom, except it remains ro.
This will give you access from the desktop, with a mouse click or two on the relevant icon. The device should mount. Otherwise mount it as user.
Many thanks for your reply...
i have tried this and it will let me acess the drive as a user but still cannot write to the device as user,i can when iam in root though so it is not a major problem but one i would like to sort out..
