Truecrypt Readonly

Post by Amak » Fri May 28, 2010 0:27

Arg, 2nd issue I can't find a solution to. Whenever I mount my NTFS drive with Truecrypt, I cannot delete or write to it. Truecrypt shows Read Only as "No", but Sabayon is showing something else. I tried chmod and using Dolphin as root and nothing works.

*Bump* nothing? Ubuntu never had the read only problem:|

Amak, I had issues with the Sulfur-based installation of Truecrypt. Try downloading the binary from Truecrypt's website and installing that way (very easy, simply unzip and run the executable installer). It work flawlessly now.

Hope this helps!

Thanks but that didn't solve my issue... I may have to swap to Fedora or back to Windows... seems Sabayon simply may not like my setup:\

Has anyone managed to mount truecrypt with read write? When ever I mount I get it mounted as read-only.

Code: Select all

/dev/mapper/truecrypt2 on /media/truecrypt2 type ntfs (ro,uid=1000,gid=1001,umask=077)
