How To Mount Mac HFS Read and Write with Ubuntu Linux

You can make it possible to mount a MAC HFS+ as Read and Write in Ubuntu Linux.

sudo apt-get install hfsplus

Then, use the -o force option to force the drive to mount:

sudo mount -o force /dev/sdX /your/mount/point

If the drive has been mounted automatically (as it should be on a desktop system like Ubuntu), you can enable remounting as writeable by:

sudo mount -o remount,force /mount/point


sudo mount -o remount,force /dev/sdx

Use mount -l to find which devices are already mounted on which mount points.

I used this to save data off of the mac hard drive
