I've just got Ubuntu 9.04 on my old IBM Thinkpad T21 and I've been facing some issues here. When installing the new OS, I set up 3 partitions: 1 for 'swap', one for root and a 3rd one for my files (I just want to keep my files apart from OS files in case of a crash or any sort of disgrace. What happens now is that I cannot make any change in this 3rd partition as it prompts no 'privilege' of doing so. I'm the only user so I've already granted myself privileges on every possible authorizations (under 'system/administration') but it still prevents me of managing the folder.
Have I done anything wrong? How to correct this?
Thanks in advance for your help!
