How-To change Mount permissions???

Post by WinterMint »

Hello, i need help changing the permissions of a new disk i made using GParted. I added a second hard disk, formatted it, and made a Label for it, and it mounts perfectly, but when i try to make a new folder using File Browser, i don't have access. A look at the properties shows root is the owner, and i can't change anything. Do i have to manipulate the permissions through the command line? Is there a way to fix this using GParted?

Thanks everyone
Bobby

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R &USER:&USER /media/the_right_path

....or

sudo chown -R username:username /media/the_right_path

...for example

sudo chown -R oobe:oobe /media/CentOS

Hope this helps some. :-)

Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.
