I have just installed linumint 18.3 xfce 64 bit on a netbook with dual boot with windows 7
I set up an ntfs partition where i copied the files that i would like to share between linuxmint and W7 and labelled it DATOS (with gparted)
I want it to automount it at start up.
Here is the problem:
On Thunar, when i try to delete a folder on that ntfs patition whith de keyboard "Delete" button i get this message:
"Unable to find or create trash directory"
i have just realized that i can delete it using the mouse right click context menu "Delete", (a massage advices me that it will be permanently deleted)
So, how can i do to be able to delete files with the keyboard "Delete" button.
I first used gnome-disks to set the automount. Then i read an interlting altair4 post about how to do that on fstab
I thought my problem could be related to that
So, i edited fstab as altair4 suggested. But the problem remains.
Here is my fstab now:
Code: Select all
# /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). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=0b75c8ae-04df-4535-81ab-c367f691fe10 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # /home was on /dev/sda7 during installation UUID=fc7fa5f6-62d7-4ca3-9f8c-1158c02f3658 /home ext4 defaults 0 2 # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation UUID=e929ceaf-a012-4e52-8441-8e18c7a0d9cd none swap sw 0 0 # #Así monta la particion gnome-disks #/dev/disk/by-uuid/3FDA508E2E4CD457 /mnt/DATOS auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0 # # Montado manual de DATOS UUID=3FDA508E2E4CD457 /media/DATOS ntfs defaults, uid=lm,windows_names 0 0
I notice that although i wrote "uid=lm" on the fstab line (lm is my user account) all in DATOS is owned by root. Even if i create a folder on it it is owned by root. (just to comment)
EDIT: To the forum admin: Please move this post to the forum you consider it should be. I'm not sure if this is the right place
