Several ways to mount NTFS partitions at startup in Ubuntu 11.04

With the latest version of Ubuntu, some users have permissions issues when you run your files in one partition or hard disk formatted with NTFS. The solution is as easy as the partition auto-mount at startup to avoid permission problems. This automatically made and what previous versions of Ubuntu, but not 11.04, so I am going to explain some ways to do this.

First of all, be clear which is the partition with which we work, that we can look with Gparted, or type in console the following:
sudo sfdisk -l
The first option has two variants, but do exactly the same. We start by editing the file/fstab, which is indicating that partitions start with the system. In this case, edit with nano:
sudo nano /etc/fstab
And at the end add the following line, where sdaX shall be that of your disk. A folder assembly in this case we will call data:
/dev/sdaX /media/datos ntfs umask=0000,utf8 0 0
The other alternative is putting the UUID disk and using ntfs-3g comes by default in Ubuntu 11.04
UUID=XXXXXXXXXXXX /media/datos ntfs-3g default 0 0
The UUID, so we can see with Gparted or by typing in console
sudo blkid
Another option we have to mount the partition is using ntfs-3g in graphical mode. To do this we need to be installed, ntfs-3g, fuse-utils, ntfs-config. In Unity, we must find application in power button/System Configuration/NTFS Configuration Tools.

We also have another way to do this easily in graphical mode, installing pysdm:
sudo apt-get install pysdm
We can find it in power button/System Configuration/storage devices.

There are more ways to do the same, but I think these are the easiest.
