    Hi,
    I use (Slax 6.0.6) on a USB and could not see files in my NTFS drive, I am not talking about files in english but files with non-English characters, so I installed some fonts using Slax control center and then I could see files in my language but the problem is that after this the NTFS drive turn into ( read only ) mode !!!!!
    and I can not create any file, BUT when I do UNMOUNT then MOUNT the
    non-English files disappear and the drive turns into ( read / write ) mode !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i suppose this is the parition, so try something like this:

    /dev/hda5 /mnt/hda5 ntfs-3g auto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec,locale=ar_LB.utf8 0 0

    ar_LB.utf8 is my locale, for you see your locale by typing locale -a

    Hope this helps.
    Linux is not only an operating system, it's a philosophy.
