Set permissions to HFS+ external hard drive

Postby crispygoat » Thu Jul 23, 2009 4:49 pm

In order to format my external hard drive I've backed up the files on my Linux Mint system. I formated the external hard drive to Mac OS X extended (Non-Journaled) and once mounted on the Linux Mint system it can only read and not write. I was told to change permissions but using the "permissions" tab under preferences tells me it cannot find the information.

thank you

Not quite sure I understand. I tried using the command stated on (http://xbmc.org/forum/showthread.php?t=51626),

Code: Select all

mount -t hfsplus -o rw,force /dev/sdx1 dst
it did not work. I installed hfsutils but still no luck...

Yours was an unjornel'd hfs disk, as far as I understood what you listed..
--so why you would use that specific command, I don't understand..
