Title: save on ntfs partition
Post by: lapin on October 13, 2011, 07:53:09 pm
I would like to save my scribus files on a ntfs partition - however, scribus doesn't show me the appropriate path when saving :-[
is there a way to solve this problem?

no, basically there should be no reason why it should not work...

but: on what plaftform? what do you expect to see? what do you see? where is the ntfs partition?

thanks for the quick reply
the two screenshots may help to identify the problem - I hope
in the <save as> dialog  /dev/sda1/  (the ntfs partition) does not appear in the selection list
there are no passwords set for the ntfs partititon
 :)

hi lapin,

well, from your first screenshot i would say that the ntfs partition is not mounted...

that's why you can't see it :-)

you should find out how to mount ntfs partitions with the linux distribution and destkop environment you're using...

once you will have correctly setup the system, you will probably find the partition under /mnt or under /media

if you need further help, the best thing is if you can find somebody who can help you with the issue in your neighborhood... otherwise ask in here or on irc...

ciao

The question to ask yourself in a situation like this is:Can you access files on the ntfs partition from other programs? If not, the fault most likely is not in Scribus.

yes, I can - I was just about to write that, working in libre office allows to store my files anywhere
in libre office I can open any .doc (etc) files sitting on the ntfs partition
sounds weird, doesn't it?
thanks for support!!

saving on the ntfs partition now works
thanks for the hints!
I found this here very useful: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=22093
 (http://ttp://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=22093)  thus, mounting a partition at boot-up makes it available in all programs
generally, linux offers nice tools!
