[ubuntu] Setting Write Permissions On Ext4 for New computer

[ubuntu] Setting Write Permissions On Ext4 for New computer

I just got a new computer pre-loaded with Ubuntu 20.04. I can’t drag my backed up files over to the desktop or anything. I need to set write permissions. I followed instructions I found on a website… but still am having issues.

I identified my drive as SDA5, found my UUID:

/dev/sda5: UUID=”0da43e18-2c6f-4329-b070-eb8330d6ef85″ TYPE=”ext4″ PARTUUID=”482e2b8c-05″

When I enter ll /media/$USER to find where it’s mounted I get this:

total 12
drwxr-x—+ 3 root root 4096 Sep 27 12:24 ./
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Sep 27 12:24 ../
drwxrwxrwx 1 psychtrailmix psychtrailmix 4096 Sep 24 08:51 2B93D4A333F3948F/

So my UUID doesn’t even pop up here.

I am trying to continue the process with:

sudo chgrp adm /media/psychtrailmix/0da43e18-2c6f-4329-b070-eb8330d6ef85

But I just get the below message:

chgrp: cannot access ‘/media/psychtrailmix/0da43e18-2c6f-4329-b070-eb8330d6ef85’: No such file or directory

Any help is appreciated.
