Before I installed linux mint, I had 2 ntfs partitions (windows C: and data D:), and I have installed linux mint over my old system partion (c:), but kept my data partition because it has about 500gb worth of movies on it.
I want to stream these movies via Plex (google it), but Plex cannot see the files inside the mounted data partition because the permissions are not correct. I have tried chmoding the folders and files, but that doesn't work because it is formatted in ntfs. After about 3 hours of googling I have deduced that this is because the file system isn't mounted with the correct permissions (I needed it mounted with 755, but it mounts as rwx for the user only). I also have found that the best course of action is to create a udev rule to change the way the drive is mounted when I click on it thru the file explorer (which, according to my google fu uses udisks in the background).
My question is: How do I create a udev rule such that my data partition is ALWAYS mounted as 755? Also, it would be nice if it auto-mounted on startup instead of me having to mount it by opening the folder each time.
Thanks a ton.
