How Do I Mount a USB Drive as a Different User?
Posted on 2009-07-08
I'm trying to mount a USB Drive as a differnet user. It's currently automounting with "root" being both the user and group permissions on the drive. If we run the chown to change the owner (ran it under sudo - so we're running this command as "root"), the command runs fine, but the permissions immediately revert back to "root root" as if we never did anything.
We were thinking that maybe we have to mount the drive as our desired user (fog being that user - we're using Fog Project now for imaging), but we're unsure how to change how Ubuntu (9.04) mounts the drive. Right now it just auto-mounts as root being the owner. Help!
The bottom line is we need to change who owns this external USB drive so we can share it out. Does anybody have suggestions? I am VERY involved in this problem right now, so this should go fast since my responses will be quick.
