[openFATE 310229] Mount NTFS partitions user-writeable by default
Feature changed by: Genix Info (genixinfo)
Feature #310229, revision 25
Title: Mount NTFS partitions user-writeable by default

openSUSE-11.4: New

Requested by: Genix Info (genixinfo)
Partner organization:

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

#1: Lee Matheson (oldcpu) (2010-07-31 00:08:15)
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.

#2: Jimmy Berry (boombatower) (2010-07-31 01:05:38)
I would have to agree as well.

#3: Alex Minton (minton) (2010-07-31 12:21:41)
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.

#4: Tim Edwards (tk83) (2010-09-14 16:14:46)
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

#5: Wallacy Freitas (wallacyf) (2010-09-16 05:11:33)
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.

#6: Tom Zöhner (zoehneto) (2010-09-16 15:39:01)
This feature is also very important, since new users can't possibly
know that only root can write to NTFS partitions.

#7: Gigih aji ibrahim (bungcip) (2010-09-27 11:08:18)
Mount NTFS partitions user-writeable by default is very important
feature for desktop usage.

#9: Jedi Beeftrix (jedibeeftrix) (2010-12-05 13:22:42) (reply to #7)
very much agreed, especially so for dual-booters.

#8: Alex Bars (alexdbars) (2010-12-01 08:26:47)
I agree/thanks!!

#10: Denis Kuplyakov (denerkup) (2011-01-19 16:04:31)
It's very important feature for me.

#11: Jörg Schmela (herz-von-hessen) (2011-02-25 18:18:58)
I also wich to have this Feature as default.
