I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop. I have a file share in my home directory call "docs". I use to have Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. With my laptop I use to mount my desktop share and use rsync to keeps files synced. I recently ran a clean install of Fedora 15 on my laptop. I used the same user name and password as my Ubuntu desktop (this is the way I had my laptop setup when it had Ubuntu). In Fedora I can mount the share but can't access the files.
I checked the UID:GUID on my account on Ubuntu and it's 1000:1000. On my Fedora laptop it's 500:500. From Fedora, if I look at the directory and file properties, the owner is 1000:1000. I'm assuming this is why I running into issues.
Is there an easy way to get around this issue? Is it possible to change my Fedora UID:GUID to 1000:1000 without breaking a bunch of stuff? Or vise versa (change the UID:GUID on Ubuntu)
Or maybe there's a simple way that I'm overlooking???
