Description 7qia0tp02 2016-10-05 02:44:27 UTC
Problem is described here:


I created an image using the Disks tool, and then tried to mount it with Disk Image Mounter, and it asks for a password twice, but fails with the error:

Unable to mount OLD SYSTEM_DRV

Error mounting /dev/loop1 at /media/endolith/OLD SYSTEM_DRV: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000" "/dev/loop1" "/media/endolith/OLD SYSTEM_DRV"' exited with non-zero exit status 21: ntfs-3g-mount: mount failed: Permission denied

If I use a command like 

sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop "Disk Image.img" /mnt/SYSTEM_DRV

it works fine.

This is Ubuntu 16.04.1

more exactly, I used 

    mkdir /mnt/SYSTEM_DRV
    sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop "Disk Image.img" /mnt/SYSTEM_DRV
Comment 2 7qia0tp02 2016-10-05 02:51:07 UTC
or even more exactly

    sudo mkdir /mnt/SYSTEM_DRV
    sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop "Disk Image.img" /mnt/SYSTEM_DRV

and this is in MATE environment
