How to get Btrfs on 2nd partition of USB HDD to automount as read/write
 
Hello,

The following is based on
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2043016

I have a user with an Xubuntu 12.04.1 laptop, 32-bit. He needs to
use a USB hard disk drive which has 2 partitions: the 1st
partition is NTFS and the 2nd partition is Btrfs.

When he plugs in the hard drive, both partitions auto-mount OK,
except that the Btrfs partition automounts read-only. That is, the
permissions of the directories in /dev are drwx------ for the NTFS
and dr-xr-xr-x for the Btrfs.

How can the OS be set up so that the Btrfs will automount
read/write?

The "dmesg" command shows the following on plug-in of the drive:

[ 7253.520087] usb 2-4: new high-speed USB device number 11 using
ehci_hcd

[ 7257.546790] btrfs: disk space caching is enabled

Neither the "usbmount" nor "pmount" packages are installed, but
"thunar-volman" is installed. I did install "pmount" only to find
that it appears to be meant to be invoked manually, so I un-
installed it again.

"uname -rv" reports:

3.2.0-29-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 27 17:04:05 UTC 2012

The "groups" command shows that the user is a member of the
following (in addition to a group named after his username):

adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape sudo dip video plugdev fuse
lpadmin sambashare

The "mount" command shows for the Btrfs partition in question:

/dev/sdb2 on /media/[partition_label] type btrfs
(rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks)

(I have substituted [partition_label] for the partition label,
which is all letters, no punctuation marks.)

Because "mount" shows "rw", does that mean that it is the
configuration of Btrfs, not the configuration of automounting, that
is at issue?

I appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance for any useful comments about this issue.

Sorry that this follow-up message won't show up under the same
thread as the original message, but I think that any future follow-
ups by me to this list (even for different issues) will be
correctly under the original thread. (On the list options page, I
have turned on "Receive your own posts to the list?" and intend to
reply to those in future so the threading will work right.)
