This location could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of “USB Flash Drive”

Spread the love

Using Ubuntu 20.04. I have my default “sudo” account. I created a 2nd user account (Standard account). While logged into the 2nd user account, if I insert a USB Flash Drive formated with ext4, then I get this message when trying to access files on the drive: This location could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of “USB Flash Drive”
I have “solved” the problem by using a different USB Flash Drive formatted with FAT32. But to further my learning, I thought I would post here to see if anyone knows how to fix the problem if I were to continue to use an ext4 formatted drive. I’m assuming the fix somehow involves changing permissions, but I’m not sure what permissions.
And I realize that this subject has other similar posts on Ask Ubuntu and I have tried to analyze those fixes but I’m having trouble understanding how to relate those fixes to dealing with the permissions for a non-user detachable device like a Flash Drive.
