Mount NTFS partitions user-writeable by default

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Done

Description

My suggestion is to add write support on NTFS partitions, for normal users (not root). As already happens in FAT32.

I agree that DEFAULT (upon installation) write support for NTFS partitions should be in place and one should NOT be forced to hand edit the /etc/fstab file to obtain write support.

I would have to agree as well.

Yes, at this particular moment default settings of ntfs-3g are good enough to not add something more in fstab. So I am all for mounting NTFS partitions with "defaults" option.

Agreed too, it's even worse for USB drives formatted as NTFS, there's no reliable way to get them onto read-write.

BTW I changed the title of this request as the original one is misleading (NTFS-3G write support has been in Opensuse for a few years now).

It is extremely unproductive to plug a pendrive formatted in NTFS and then having to mount it manually to obtain write support.

There is no reason today to mount only in reading.

This feature is also very important, since new users can't possibly know that only root can write to NTFS partitions.

Mount NTFS partitions user-writeable by default is very important feature for desktop usage.

icons/user_comment.png J. B. wrote: (7 years ago)

very much agreed, especially so for dual-booters.

I agree/thanks!!

It's very important feature for me.

I also wich to have this Feature as default.

Now that ntfs-config doesn't work anymore (it has hal dependency) we have to tell users on forums to go to a console, execute some commands to get access to his pendrive/windows partition.
