Mounting 222 gb partition

Postby CWM303 on Wed May 30, 2012 7:26 pm

Hello everyone,

I just installed LM 12 and I told the installer to use the 222 gigs as home...... But when you open Dolphin, and click on the 222gb partition... theres folders there but try to open Chromium and then try to save a file or something to it, it denies it...

So I am wondering why I cant save nothing to it... and where is it being used at? and if its not I would like to format and use it as just a partition ( not home ) and save my files there instead of in HOME ( since it puts so many files there )

Thanks,
Christopher


***** EDIT ****

By this screenshot.. it says the 222 gigs is HOME....

but why is it when you open a SAVE AS DIALOG... you have HOME, FILE SYSTEM, and then 222 gigs... if 222 gigs is HOME?

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.

# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Could you also post the output of this command because so far not one thing appears to be wrong:
Code: Select all
mount

EDIT: And just in case that doesn't show anything wrong either post the output of this one as well:
Code: Select all
ls -al /home
