Assuming the best intentions, and that "KFCE" isn't a typo - it still
"appears" you are not running Debian, it's 'possible' you are using Mint
- which is a Debian "derivative". This the *Debian*-User list, the wrong
place to expect support for anything other than Debian or Debian
PureBlends for several[*1] reasons.
Are you using Debian??
Scott, I really appreciate your time in helping me, and I realize it's
not easy with my typo and perhaps mis-used terminology. As I hinted at,
I've been running pure Debian for some 20 years. I forget how long I've
been subscribed to this list, but it could be almost 20 years as well.
That doesn't make me smart, just old (and happy with Debian).
I did indeed mistype, and it should have been XFCE not KFCE.
I've been googling and posting with the term "auto-mount", but is this
more properly "hotplug"? I'm not trying to get the USB drive to mount at
boot; that I can do. It mounts when I plug the drive in to the running
system, just not with the permissions that I need. I hope I didn't lead
anyone to think I'm asking about a boot-time mount issue.
Over the years the hot-plug system (if that's the name for it) seems to
have changed a few times, and I admit I've never understood how hal,
udev, etc worked/works. It's always worked to some extent, so I've never
had to fuss with it.
ntfs-3g's umask/dmask/fmask options all default to 0, but somebody is
calling it with dmask=0077,fmask=0177. I haven't figured out the chain
of commands involved.
