Re: External drive permissions issue in Thunar and PCManFM

Just a request for clarification ...

What file format are the external drives formatted in ? Guessing ntfs ... as a budding web developer ? What happens if you open thunar or pcmanfm as root ? Many ways to do that, w run dialogue "gksudo thunar" or "gksudo pcmanfm" or in terminal "gksudo thunar &exit" or "gksudo pcmanfm &exit" Root should have access to everything, fact that they are showing up, must mean the external media is mounted ... Only that you don't have permission to access it, apparently not even read permission if it won't allow you to access the drives @ all.

More info would be helpful to me + others. Personally never had a problem mounting external media ... Willing to try n help sort it out though.


Vll! smile
