I have a dual boot laptop with mac as the second os. The second hard drive that is formatted to fat32 and works with OSX. I can view the second drive in ubuntu but not edit the files. I wish to be able to modify the files in this second drive via linux.
the drive is /dev/sda2
I first navigated the the a folder and tried chown to move ownership of the file on the drive. (Which didn’t work)
chown bob uTorrent.dmg
If I right click a file in nautilus and look at the properties I see that “You are not the owner so cannot change the permissions”
So I downloaded a modifier for nautilus that allows me to open files as root when I do this I get the following when I try to edit privileges I get the error
...read only file system
I have tried unmounting the drive and running
sudo mount -o rw, remount /dev/sda2
I then get the error
mount: /dev/sda2: special device remount does not exist.
I also tried killing nautilus and starting again, but that didn’t work
