I have created a dedicated mountpoint for a flashdrive I use to carry files between home and the office. Unfortunately, the mountpoint is owned by root and I do not have write permissions. I have to enter Ranger as admin in order to transfer files from the desktop to the usb. I tried changing the ownership, but am told the operation isn’t allowed.
[jpbaiocchi@bruiser ~]$ sudo chown jpbaiocchi:jpbaiocchi /mnt/usb [sudo] password for jpbaiocchi: chown: changing ownership of '/mnt/usb': Operation not permitted [jpbaiocchi@bruiser ~]$
This worked for me before here. The only thing I can think of is the USB uses a different FS; fat32 to be specific.
