    Linpus does not support ntfs out of the box, you need to install ntfs3g via the add/remove software option.

    Search for ntfs3g in the package manager.

    I have the same problem: Linpus lite doesn't recognize NTFS drives. I've seen the solutions and I don't see where to look on this AspireOne, for instance, the "package manager"... nor the NTFS-3g thing. I'm new at linux...
