Supporting writing to NTFS partitions as default

Registered by Mantas Kriaučiūnas on 2006-08-16

We really need to support writing to NTFS volumes as default.
It seems the quickest solution would be use ntfs-3g and ntfs-config (https://launchpad.net/ntfs-config ) packages.

Whiteboard

Full writing access to NTFS filesystems was implemented since Baltix 2.7rc (based on Ubuntu 7.04) - in this version as default was enabled read-only access, but user could change this with few mouse clicks in "NTFS Configuration Tool" (see "Programs"->"System Tools").
Since Baltix 3.0rc full writing access to NTFS filesystems was enabled by default.
