I am running ubuntu using VirtualBox on a Macbook Pro. I wanted to share my documents folder on the Mac in the virtual machine. I had no issues creating/mounting the share folder on ubuntu. However the file permissions for the shared folder are owned by root.
I'm in an organization where each user has a Windows network username, and a central windows server with a folder for each user. I can access the folder using SAMBA and my (windows) network user name. I want to change the permissions (sharing settings) for my folder on this windows server - using only Ubuntu.
Had i been using windows I would simply right-click on the folder, go to permissions settings and add/modify users in the list.First of all, is it even possible to do this using Ubuntu?
I have Ubuntu server with Apache 2, PHP, and various DBMSs running in VirtualBox on my Mac host for my web development work. To easily create/edit the files I'm working on, I mounted a directory from my Mac host via the VirtualBox shared directory feature to /var/www/. Every file I create on my Mac host has the following permissions on the on the Server: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6 2011-07-30 01:27 test.The problem is that most PHPscripts/frameworks/etc.need write access to some files.It is extremely annoying to have to chmod every new file/directory that needs write access.Is there a way to set the correct permissions for the files/directories automatically?
I have two partitions: one for Ubuntu 64-bit and another one with the format NTFS only for keeping documents. I have shared one folder of this NTFS partition, but every time I reboot the PC (or shutdown and start again for that matter) the folder is no longer shared.Why?How can I prevent this folder to be un-shared when I reboot the computer?
I wanted to enable file sharing in for one of my folders under the home directory. I noticed that the 'not shared' and 'shared' always defaulted back to 'not shared'. And now I see what looks like an electrical plug icon symbol over the folder icon symbol like I might see used for some of the root folders. What does the new icon indicate about the folder attributes and why does file sharing default to 'not shared'?
I am attempting to make a shared folder for people that VPN into the network. This folder needs to be accessible to windows and mac machines. So far I have the VPN through ppptd working. I just don't know how to make a folder. I feel like this should be fairly easy. I am using Lucid Lynx server edition.
I would like to have a directory Code: /home/shared Where all human users have r/w permission for all files and sub-directories under this path. Can I achieve this buy just setting the permissions correctly or do I need to do something else?
I am trying to setup 2 individual FTP users. They should both have access to the same directory. They both need to be able to read/write into the directory. But, I want them not to be able to write to each other's files (e.g. delete, remove, rename, etc.).
So let's say the shared directory is: /home/ftp/shared/
UserA needs read/write access to /home/ftp/shared/. UserA should only have write access to his own files. UserB also needs read/write access to /home/ftp/shared/. UserB should only have write access to his own files.
It would be a unix box of sorts, but that is the only restriction. I could use whatever software. I am currently thinking pure-ftpd or vsftp but I am open to all ideas.
I am running Ubuntu 9.04, and wish to share a folder to be accessed without logging in via Windows Vista. If I set up the share through the nautilus right-click menu and enable "Guest Account", the share is inaccessible. The folder shows up, but it fails to mount. Vista says that it can see the computer, but not the shared folder.
The folder is
The only way I can get it to work is if I change the permissions of the folder /home/william to allow Others to access files.
I am using Centos 5.2, and I installed all of the available gnome and gnome development libraries available via the "add software" menu item. Still, when running some programs, I get the following error message:
"error while loading shared libraries: libzvt.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
If I understood it correctly, libzvt.so.2 is part of some gnome libs... where to find and how to install them?
I'm having an issue setting up users for file sharing. In Ubuntu 10.04 (which is awesome btw) I right click the file, and share it on the network. I can see it right away on other machine, and login using the main user account on the server, no problem. I get an issue when I try to login to the share using additional account I setup. I get to the login screen, and it seems to accept the username and password as being valid (it doesn't bring up the login screen again), instead it brings up a error message saying it's unable to mount the share. It seems so much like a permission issue. I don't want to grant all kinds of access for these users, what do I do?
I've just discovered something I've not noticed before in earlier releases. I have samba installed but like to go the easy way when setting up smb shares by right-clicking on a folder and selecting 'Sharing Options' (That, by the way, sets up the configuration for the share in /var/lib/samba/usershares rather than in /etc/samba/smb.conf.)
Trying to get my Mac to be able to access the share, I was trying different modifications to the share with right-click > Sharing Options > Modify Share. Each time I did so, this caused Nautilus to restart - that is, the whole desktop blanked out to just the wallpaper and then my icons slowly reappeared. Worse, a file copy was interrupted. And much worse, a lengthy video encoding using OpenShot was interrupted. Both the latter irretrievably.This is unfortunate behaviour. Has anyone else seen it? Can anyone else confirm this? I couldn't find anything on Launchpad.
I'm using ubuntu 10.10 inside Virtual Box. i have shared a folder on win7. i can't for the life of me find where that folder is in ubuntu now? maybe i'm missing a step with the whole folder sharing but a shared folder is created and the box is ticked, so where in ubuntu is it?
I have set up Ubuntu 10.04 with a data partition mounted as /share that I would like to make available to all users. I have only managed to do this so far by using chmod and chown, can I flag the folder so that all users can read and write from it automatically? I'm looking for something a bit like "Ignore Ownership" on a Mac.
Installed Fedora 10 on my Downloader (just a name for the pc as its mainly used for torrent downloading) computer. But I cant access the fedora shared folder from my windows XP. Accessing XP shared folders from F10 is fine. I have another 2 computer where I have installed Ubuntu 8.10. I have no problem accessing either of the Ubuntu system from my XP computer. The F10 computer comes up fine on my Workgroup list of xp. I double click to go into the F10, a login window pops up and askes for username and password. I used the normal username and root / password to log in. But it keeps popping up for password again and again. BTW, Recently I Installed Win7 Beta on the Windows computer and Surprisingly I can access the Fedora 10 computer shared folder just fine from Win7. But I need to get it working under windows XP.
Here is my smb.conf file Code: # Global Settings [global] # Network Related Options # workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, e.g.: MIDEARTH # server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field netbios name can be used to specify a server name not tied to the hostname. Interfaces lets you configure Samba to use multiple interfaces. If you have multiple network interfaces then you can list the ones. You want to listen on (never omit localhost). Hosts Allow/Hosts Deny lets you restrict who can connect, and you can specify it as a per share option as well
workgroup = THEMATRIX server string = Samba Server Version %v netbios name = MYSERVER ;interfaces = lo eth0 192.168.12.2/24 192.168.13.2/24 ;hosts allow = 127. 192.168.12. 192.168.13 .....
I am trying to share shared folder via email firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com When I click the link and accept button. I get this error: Something has gone wrong (500)

If I share a folder via email to firstname.lastname@example.org is it mean only share to email@example.com OR every ubuntu one user can access it if they have the link? Let user type in sharing title and message that appear in the email. This is because standard message and title always make people think that is spam virus and they ignore.
Website login problem: Everytime I login at login.ubuntu. it doesn't automatic link me back to my storage and i have to type change login.ubuntu to one.ubuntu and click sign-in to login.
lately, after shifting to 10.04, when I copy files from the Ubuntu to my XP shared folders, it goes very very slow. i restarted the router and nothing changed. I can see the folders, but the copy speed is still very slow.
I'm attempting to write a simple BASH shell script to copy some files from one of my Ubuntu machines to another Ubuntu machine's shared folder. I've searched the forums but I haven't found anything on simply using cp across a network.Since Nautilus can do it I presume I should be able to do it from the terminal or from a BASH script -- this might be my first mistake?I have tried the obvious:
cp My_local_file //Name_of_other_ubuntu_computer/shareddocs and cp My_local_file smb://Name_of_other_ubuntu_computer/shareddocs
but those don't work. Sharing is enabled for the shareddocs folder. I have tried mounting the remote shareddocs folder but it seems I need to install some other package to do this? If this is true, how does Nautilus manage to do it without an additional package?
I installed samba and set one of the folders on my desktop to share with my win7pc. However, I'm having some difficulty getting it to work. If anyone can provide some insight, I would be very grateful.
Both my ubuntu-pc and my win7-pc belong to the same workgroup. Each pc can ping the other. The ubuntu-pc can "see" that the win7 pc is part of the network; but it cannot communicate with the win7 pc. The Win7-pc does not show that the ubuntu-pc is part of the network.
