The ntfs-3g packages comes pre-installed with the newest versions of Ubuntu, but you still need to install ntfs-config if you want the GUI configuration tool. You can search for "ntfs-config" in Synaptic or install via terminal:

sudo apt-get install ntfs-config

Now you have the choice between an automatic configuration using ntfs-config or a manual configuration.

The Automatic Way

Launch NTFS Configuration Tool from Applications->System Tools, or via the terminal:
gksudo ntfs-config


If you have at least one internal NTFS partition, it will allow you to check both boxes, otherwise you can only check the box for external devices.

If your NTFS partition(s) are not yet configured, it will ask you to choose a name that will be used as the mount point (please no spaces). Then enable write support for internal and/or external devices


For the Manual way, you can refer to mountingWindows NTFS PARTITION official guide by Ubuntu
