I've followed this instructions and now I'm able to access my Machintosh HD from Ubuntu, the problem is that I can't access the folder I need (example Desktop), it say that I haven't enough permissions to access the folder and I see the folder with an "X" on it. I've tried to use

gksudo nautilus

It works but I can't run the terminal every time I have to access a file on my HD. Is there a solution to edit the permissions permanently?


You could change the ownership of the folder by:

sudo chown -R username:groupname /mount/mac/Desktop 

Replace username with your user-name.
