    I am a happy XP user - and I also use Ubuntu (with LXDE).

    Sometimes I need a file which is stored in an NTFS partition - and once it's mounted that's OK - until there is any sort of ownership/permission problem.

    Also sometimes I need to use files stored on a USB stick - and here also run into ownership/permission problems.

    So I ask this:
    Is there any way to completely/permanently change something so that...:
    1. Permissions are automatically assumed (or changed) ??
    2. File permissions are turned off from monitoring as I am the only user and do not need to protect me from me ?!?

    Thanks for any ideas and/or hints.

    The problem I run into is in getting the perms changed in Linux mostly.
    This is why I asked if there is some way to just shut down that function somehow.
    Even as root it gets to be troublesome when trying to use files created with windows.

    thanks.

    Easiest way to shut the function down might be converting the partition to fat32.

    Wow Mr Jinje - what a different thought !!
    I wonder how Linux handles FAT32 - because in windows it was not so reliable.

    Alot of the time I have perm troubles when using a USB stick - like even when trying to edit a simple TXT file - and my sticks are usually done in NTFS.

    Thanks.
