I have installed Manjaro and used manual partition on setup so i can split my 1TB ssd.
The second partition that i have made i just formatted to ext4 and that’s it. The problem that i am having now that i can’t really write into it. It has folder inside called “lost+found” and has a lock symbol.
This should help you. But you have to edit this command to your requirements. So change ‘yourusername’ to the user who will be new owner and ‘/mnt/point/your/partition’ to directory where your partition is mounted.
If the partition is not listed in /etc/fstab and does not have a static mountpoint, then it will be auto-mounted under /run, but /run lives on a ramfs, and therefore, any change of the permissions on the mountpoint will not persist across reboots.
TNX i will do that.
What should i have done in the manual partition when i installed Manjaro to make things work on start?
How should i have configured this partition instead of just format it to ext4?
Simply giving it a mountpoint under your home directory would probably have done the job, but it’s difficult to say, given that your user account (and therefore your home directory) did not exist yet at the stage of partitioning your drive.
What most users do however is use the entire second partition as /home. And that’s an option you still have as well, albeit that it’s more difficult. I’ve written a tutorial about that as well.
