Enable Setting Executable Permission of Files at NTFS Partition

Enable Setting Executable Permission of Files at NTFS Partition

By Aditya

Setting executable permission of any files at ntfs partition on Linux is almost impossible.

There is, however, a way to set executable of ONE BY ONE ntfs partition via editing /etc/fstab. For more information, read this post.

Of course this is not efficient for new users. So, I try to find other ways to make it true. I then found a great tutorial in ubuntuforums.org (I forgot the complete link :-( sorry…).

This tutorial summarizes some steps newbies can follow.

 

I have modified udisks 1.0.4 package to make possible to set executable permission of any files at ntfs partition.

Download udisks_1.0.4-5ubuntu2_i386.deb (561 KB) (this package has been modified from the original).

On Ubuntu (or Mint or derivatives), open terminal, cd to directory you save that downloaded package, then

1
$ sudo dpkg -i udisks_1.0.4-5ubuntu2_i386.deb

If dependency problem occurs, type sudo apt-get -f install but it requires Internet connection.

If no error found, restart your computer.

Then try to modify executable permission of any files at your ntfs partition ;-)
