Re: 6 Hours later, still getting 'only root can mount' error
I receive the 'Only root can mount..' error box when I plug in the drive.
After the device has been plugged in, and automatic mount has failed, are you able to mount with an explicit user mount command ?
I have followed the instructions herE: http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs-3g
I have added my user account to the 'disk' group
I have made sure that I have perms to the mount point
Maybe, it would be useful if we can check the conditions. At least you must use the internal fuse, but you display an ntfs-3g version using the external fuse library.
1. ntfs-3g is compiled with integrated FUSE support
type "ntfs-3g --help"
2. the ntfs-3g binary is at least version 1.2506
(already provided by the above command)
3. the ntfs-3g binary is set to setuid-root
type "ls -l /bin/ntfs-3g /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g"
(note : the binaries may be located elsewhere, and possible links have to be followed)
4. the user has access right to the volume
With the device plugged in (even not mounted),
type "ls -l /dev/disk/by-label/bertha"
Note : I am not sure automatic mounting is done using a user account (which user anyway ?). You may have to put your user and/or the mount point into group plugdev).
5. the user has access right to the mount point
With the device not mounted,
type "ls -ld /media/bertha"
