can anyone tell me why no one is able to access my drive when I share it among windows users?
gksu gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
force user = altair
sudo service smbd restart
NTFS has no linux permissions so a chmod or a chown has no affect. The way Linux handles NTFS is to create a view that makes it appear to have linux permissions but ones that cannot be changed. Unless you mount the partition through fstab it will mount in such a way that only you can access it. So you would have to have it mount with permissions allowing others to access the mounted partition.
gksu gedit /etc/fstab
UUID=200C11850C1156DE /media/Data1 ntfs defaults,nls=utf8,umask=000,windows_names 0 0
sudo blkid -c /dev/null
sudo mkdir /media/Data1
sudo mount -a
1- The Windows users are on the network! Ohter PCs!
and now, appararently I am not the owner any longer, the owner is now root! Anything I did wrong?
UUID=1635066A21FD2629 /media/pierreluc102/DATA ntfs defaults,nls=utf8,uid=1000,umask=000,windows_names 0 0
Also, when I go into /media I see pierreluc102 (as my login name) then I see DATA
UUID=1635066A21FD2629 /media/pierreluc102/DATAntfs defaults,nls=utf8,umask=000,windows_names 0 0
3- Should I just format everything into EXT4 to save the trouble?
