Are there some ntfs-config users out there? It seems to me like it's not
really useful anymore since the goal of this small app is to let the
user choose if he wants to use ntfs-3g for ntfs. But with the recent
changes in the ntfs-3g package, I believe ntfs-3g will *always* be used.

Can any ntfs user confirm this to me?

Imo the goal of this application is to get a "easy" way to mount ntfs
volumes using ntfs-3g so i say this is a very cool application for

Well, ntfs-3g should be used now anyway when you mount ntfs (even when
calling mount on the command line). Are you saying ntfs-config makes it
easy to mount ntfs volumes, or to use ntfs-3g for ntfs volumes? If the
latter, there's no use case anymore. If the former, I'm not quite sure
how it's helpful -- but I didn't really use it...

(Sent with the wrong addy)

It makes easy to mount ntfs volumes (that will turn to ntfs-3g). It
selects the ntfs partition
and the user only have to add the directory to mount and select the
read and write options.

But i've seen that this application is mostly dead upstream. :(
