Project: THT - Ubuntu 6.06 LTS - NTFS 3G.
Adding NTFS support to my Ubuntu 6.06 LTS operating system:
I then checked "/etc/fstab" to see what was entered, and all the needed parameters were there.
My only concern is that i did not want this partition to be automatically mounted upon boot up, so i changed the mount options which included all of the "defaults" parameters except for the mount options "auto,nouser", like so;|
# Added 2007-02-12
#/dev/sda1 /media/VID-00 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/VID-00 ntfs-3g rw,suid,dev,exec,noauto,user,async,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
Manual Configuration :|
When all is install correctly, we need to configure the NTFS partition to be mount by ntfs-3g. External device are automatically configure when plug, so you don't need to do this part for them. To know first the name of your NTFS partition, type in a terminal:
sudo fdisk -l | grep NTFS
you will see in the first colone, the name of your NTFS partition(s).
Now you need to configure them in /etc/fstab. We will also make a backup of this file. In a terminal, type:
sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak
gksu gedit /etc/fstab
locate the line of your NTFS partition. If they are there, just change them so it looks like that:
(of course replace
If your partition is not there, you'll have to first create a directory where you would like to mount it :
sudo mkdir /media/
and add a line at the end of the file like the one above.
Tips: You can change your locale option ( for ex locale=fr_FR.utf8 ). Execute 'locale -a' in a terminal to know which one are supported by your system. Tips2: If you want to now more about the option available, have a look at 'man ntfs-3g'
Now remount all your drive
sudo umount /dev/
sudo mount -a
or simply reboot.
