My IMac died (power supply issue, out of warranty) and I removed the HDD so I could recover some files. I'm trying to copy files from my Desktop folder on the Mac HDD using Ubuntu 10.04 (running from the CD-ROM), but I get access denied errors when I try to
ls into the directory because I'm not the owner.
I tried running
chown -R Desktop but I get an error saying that the file system is read-only.
Is there some way I can make the drive read/write or access the files without changing the owner?
