No idea mate .. a case of "sh*t happens" I guess.

You're most welcome Sim
BTW, it wasn't necessarily you missing the commands .. I added the last 3 as an edit, probably after you'd first seen the post.

fix the issue ?
"authentication token manipulation error" is nearly always a result of the partition still being mounted as "read only" (unwriteable).
Hint - There are NO numbers in the above command, it's ALL lower case, there are 3 spaces, and that's a comma not a full stop.

well nobody other than roger has permission to read/write/execute the gvfs folder .. so your script must be run as roger, not root.

What's the output from:
I'm going to guess that only roger has write permission for the
So the script needs to be run as roger, or the directory permissions changed as it's mounted

Are you using "sudo" in the script ?
what I mean is, if script.sh contains say
even if you run that script with
nemo will still open as a regular user
if on the other hand script.sh reads
and you run it with
nemo will open with elevated privileges.
script.sh must also be set as exectutable
Microsoft haven't disabled CSM, it's a UEFI BIOS setting...
You need to enter your UEFI BIOS and disable "Secure Boot" .. it may then allow you to change the CSM setting.
Be aware - this should be done from within the UEFI BIOS settings .. NOT from within Windows.
Hi caitriona, and welcome to the forum
Can you please not post terminal output (or anything else) as attachments unless specifically asked to do so by site admin.
I've had to delete your attachments in line with forum policy, so can you please post that output again, but this time paste the output directly into your response as you did with the fstab contents above.
Possibly, but I doubt it .. you can only have four PRIMARY partition, but if one is an extended partition you can have any number of logical partitions.
Linux would likely have created an extended partition containing logical partitions, so you may have 5 partitions but only 4 of them are PRIMARY.
The 4 partition limit doesn't even exist on a hard drive with a GPT partition table which most have now by default.
If you want to check, boot to the LiveCD/LiveUSB and post the output from:
In the burning or loading process of ubuntu do you have to click on 'Mount' before going any further?
Not quite sure what you mean ?
UEFI shouldn't give you any problems, but it might be a good idea to disable "SecureBoot" in the UEFI BIOS before installing.
