"Re: SD card automounts as a read only filesystem
Postby Seca on Tue Apr 17, 2012 11:05 pmYou could create an entry in /etc/fstab similar to
UUID=943579873489273947randomlongstring /media/sd auto rw,noauto,user,sync 0 0
Then just click in nautilus to mount.
Also, that little bugger tag on the card gets switched awfully easy.
Sudo blkid will show the proper uuid
You'll need to make a folder /media/sd to mount to.
If you're still having trouble with permissions, mount it to a folder within your home directory with rw permissions
I just tried this to no avail. I'm running Mint 13 Nadia, 64-bit, Cinnamon. There are no entries in /mnt at all. With the 4gig card in the card slot on my HP Pavilion laptop, the card is automatically 'mount'ed as read-only. sudo blkid
/dev/sda1: UUID="F6FCF0E3FCF09F55" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda2: UUID="7E70F6F170F6AF51" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda4: UUID="d8e3e2f2-db3b-4b0b-bb73-c1ad2d399221" TYPE="swap"
/dev/sda5: UUID="8609e430-d523-40ac-a084-e27a38faa5d5" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/mmcblk0p1: LABEL="EOS_DIGITAL" UUID="1C0B-1524" TYPE="vfat"
Not clear as to what of this goes in /etc/fstab... also, does this mean a card has to live in the drive slot permanently? And how does one "mount it to a folder within your home directory with rw permissions"... still a bit of a newb in this.
