Mount NTFS partition without being root

mayo 13, 2008

Have you realized when you install debian, you can mount your NTFS or FAT partition only if you are root??

Well the solution is the fstab file, I had the same problem, you can find the answer reading the manpage of fstab, but we’re not used to read the documentation.

You must understand what the line means, read your manpage just writing:

$ man fstab

And you’ll understand what my line means, well I added this line to my fstab,

# vim /etc/fstab

I didn’t have the partition in the file, so I wrote it, if you have your partition just edit your line.

/dev/sda5 /home/fobia/doks ntfs nls=utf8,umask=022 0 0

And when you reboot, you’ll see your NTFS partitions mounted, now I’ll install the ntfs and edit my fstab again, I’ll let you know how that goes.
