Description qu9542 2008-04-07 17:23:02 UTC
How to Repeat: Have a external Harddisk drive with Windows Compressed NTF format (formatted under Windows XP). In Windows XP, create a *.odt file in that drive. Connect this drive to Ubuntu Machine, and open the same *.odt file, modify it and save it. You will get the following error message: "General error. General Input/Output error."... I am not sure this problem is due to OpenOffice or Ubuntu system. But that kind of error can be annoying! Workaround: I have to uncompress the NTF drive, then everything is OK.

@ qu9542: Ubuntu 8.04 supports writing on compressed NTF drives? If your OS doesn't support that OOo can't write to this file system.

TM->qu9542: please check, if other apps can save to that drive when using Ubuntu or just do a touch <filename> on that drive. Might be that Ubuntu can't handle that NTF-version.

adding mci to CC Since Ubuntu7.04 the needed package is included into the default installation of Ubuntu (http://wiki.ubuntu-forum.de/index.php/NTFS)... Maybe ntfs-3g needs some configuration...?!? I don't know this since I don't use ntfs-3g (http://ntfs3g.org/)
