I installed LMDE and added my FAT32 during installation. My problem is that I can't write to the FAT32 partition in LMDE as a normal user. Only root can make changes. I tried using chmod to change the permission, with no avail (permissions remained unchanged). I tried using chown to change the owner or add my user to the groups, but nothing changed there either (said the operation wasn't permitted). I don't know how to the change fstab to mount the partition so that it can be accessed and changed by users other than root. Here is the fstab entry for the partition.
UUID=F950-B4CD /media/shared vfat rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
Thanks for your help.
