    ntfs-3g command not working and how to open .chm files in linux


    hi all,

    i am using Suse Linux10.1 as dual boot with WindowsXP Professional. in my system ntfsprogs-1.11.2-13 and ntfsprogs-fuse 1..11.2-13 packages are installed. i checked it from kpackage. but when i try to mount the ntfs filesystems using the command

    ntfs-3g /dev/hdb1 /windows/E -o silent,umask=0,local=en_US.utf8

    system simply says ntfs-3g command not found. i even tried by running the "modprobe fuse" command but still no use. please tell me how to access my NTFS partitions.

    one more thing, i have lot of books in .chm format( windows help file) is there any application in Linux which can open these books.

    Thanks in advance.

    At the risk of asking the obvious, did you install ntfs-3g? Last I recall, it needs to be installed separately and does NOT come with ntfsprogs nor ntfsprogs-fuse.

    Try to right-click the .chm-file and then choose "preview in KChMPart"
    (I am using SuSe 10.2)
