Hi there,
after switching to 6.0, Trisquel doesn't allow me to copy on USB memory sticks and SD cards.
A message says that the disk is read-only, and I tried to change the permissions, without success.
Any tricks?
Thanks.

Can you copy as root? Try copying files in Nautilus when running it as root via "sudo nautilus" command. If you manage to copy you just need to change the permission of the folder (which can also be done in the root session of Nautilus).

Yeah, permissions might be the thing if your USB sticks and such are ext or something similar rather than FAT. Alternatively, this might sound silly, but check the "lock" switch on the SD card(s): there's an optional feature that will cause an SD card to be treated as read-only when that is in the "lock" position (though I don't know if Trisquel supports this feature).

I haven't tried to copy the files as root.
SD cards and USB keys are fat 32.
SD cards aren't locked :-)
This evening I'll try with nautilus.
Thanks

Yeah,
with the command sudo nautilus I was able to copy on SD card and USB key.
Many thanks @aloniv & @onpon4

Better to use gksudo to run graphical programs.

Which groups you belong to?

$ groups

Try adding yourself to the group "plugdev":

$ sudo gpasswd -a USER plugdev

or "fuse".

@GustavoCM

$ groups
tius adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin sambashare

I've added myself to fuse group.

Thanks

You are welcome :-) (I suppose that worked).
