Re: How to give a user access to folder on a external drive ?

Where is this external drive mounted? Is it under /media/your-user-name/XXX ? Side note: Please don't use a recursive chmod in octal. It will make all files executable. This method will not: sudo chmod -R a+rwX /path/to/folder So you all are assuming that there's no graphical way so as to fix my pr...

Re: Linux Mint messes up my USB keys to listen to music on my car radio

Re: Linux Mint messes up my USB keys to listen to music on my car radio

Hum... doesn't sound stupid at all. Why not after all.

I'm gonna try that, delete that trash folder and plug it back into my car radio.

I'll let you know about the outcome tomorrow because it's 3 AM over here, going to bed now.
