I have created a user account on a ubuntu workstation. I log into the terminal as this new user and when i try to create a file i get that permission is denied. I would like to create a file such that this new user and other members of a group can access it.
When I try to create a folder from firefox (while downloading stuff), it says "unable to create folder. permission denied." But when I create it using terminal (i.e. 'mkdir foo') it works. Firefox is running as the same user as the terminal, so shouldn't the two programs have the same permissions ?
creating a new website project in the var/www folder. I open jedit and try to save a folder or file inside var/www using jedt and it refuses to let me create or save anythink in the var/www directory.
I have used the terminal to create a new folder and file inside the var/www directory and when i open the file with jedit or gedit and write some code into it it wont save the code either. I am used to just creating a new directory and saving files into it with ease using windows so this is puzzling me a little. I also installed lamp server through the terminal and the phpmyadmin folder installed somewhere different from the var/www file.
I am running the new Natty install of Ubuntu. I always seem to have this particular problem, particularly with any ubuntu/kubuntu installs, but not other distros.
Basically, I'm trying to run a program -- a text-based game server. The server needs to be able to create new folders and write and delete files within its own directories in order to work.
However, no matter what I try to set in permissions, the program always spits out errors saying it was denied. I have set the directories so that any user/program can write/delete in them, and it still doesn't work.
I need 2 Linux users to share a folder. Within this folder, users should always be able to create files and sub-folders and write into any sub-folder (whether they own it or not). However, they should only be able to edit the files they actually own.
I am trying to install the Epson Stylus SX115 printer/scanner. I have downloaded the driver since opensuse11.2 couldn't auto install it. I log in as root and execute the installer but it cant create files or folders. Example(dont know how to copy from the pips window):
Install pips-snx110_3.7.0-2_i386.deb. () cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/local/EPAva/printer/snx110/uninstall-snx110.sh': No such file or directory chmod: cannot access `/usr/bla bla bla bla bla bla bla Startup ekpd-tool... installation is complete... (yeah right^^)
My Postfix cannot currently create any folders other than inbox. Even when I send an e-mail I receive an error along the lines of, "Could not create sendmail folder." Also, my Postfix isn't receiving e-mails, and can only send e-mails to other accounts on the server. I called my ISP and they told me my port 25 isn't blocked, and it is forwarded on my router so I am not sure what could be wrong. I am using zoneedit as my name server and I am pretty sure my MX record is good.
i was trying to format one drive, accidentally formated another, told the format process to stop, and i'm unable to read the folders or files in the drive. i see some greek, odd symbols... But cant open the folders.
I've just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and Samba 3.4. I've shared a folder and have accessed the share from a Windows 7 client. However, I've struggled to configure the share and folder so that the Win7 client can create files and/or folders in the share. Kept getting Permission Denied errors. Finally, (using Webmin) I set the permissions on the file folder so that "Other" had write access. I don't understand why this was necessary (and how unsecure this is). I already had the write access checkbox ticked for "User" but it wasn't enough.
I have been playing with JWM source and found this cool tutorial at Debian Forums about how its easier to generate a .deb vs installing from source in the traditional manner (./configure, make,etc)[URL] My problem is that when doing the command
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -us -uc
it starts over, destroys the previous jwm stuff, including my custom files and generates a .deb so, how do I stop it from "cleaning" when i run the above command?
Inside, www/html folder as an ordinary user i am not able to create files.using vi editor, as root in terminal, I can work there.I am using scite text editor. How to give access to that folder for the general user?
I'm about to move a lot of folders from an older computer (sarge/etch) over to a newer with Lenny. But I get problems when I reach folders or files with names that contains nordic letters like øå. I'm using an external drive to move the folders. What is the easiest and best way to do this.
Being new to Linux, i've just about got used to the Debian setup procedure now, but had a quick question on the default ownership of files and folders. On my default Debian installation, almost all the folders and files are owned by root:root. Is this the correct advised configuration or should the folders and files be owned by a user without root permissions - eg user:user?
It is saying to make sure there is enough room in the tmp folder, so I cleaned out the entire tmp folder but the same error is still happening. Is there a way to make the tmp folder bigger? Or perhaps extract the temporary files to a different folder? Or maybe the size if the tmp folder is not even the problem?
I have a customized XP installation disk created for my company. However, my office does not require several of the applications that are installed by default. Also, some configuration settings are incorrect. I have extracted the XP installation files and can perform an install using those files from a running system, but I cannot boot from the CD.
I have tried just about every suggestion I can find on the net except purchasing a third-party burning application to do this. I tried burning both CDs and DVDs using floppy boot images, but XP will not install in a "DOS environment". I've also tried ripping the boot sector directly from a bootable CD/DVD and using that without success. Finally, I ripped ISO images and tried ripping the boot sector from those, also without success. I've also tried various file system type settings in K3b, including Joliet, Linux/Windows, UDF, and DOS compatible, all without success. Surely there must be a way to do this?
PS--I tried posting this to the K3b mailing list first but was rejected, even after creating an account with Sourceforge!? Didn't want to have to submit a support request just to submit a support request.
I have an unallocated space at the end of my hdd, which is about 10 gb. I installed Pardus on that space, but then deleted the partition to install something else (I know I did not have to delete it, I could simply install the new thing over it), i dont remember exactly how, but it was from my Debian System, not from a LiveCD.Now, I am unable to use that space. GParted gives an error and says:Warning: the kernel failed to re-read the partition tableon /dev/sda (Device or resource nusy). As a result, it may not reflect all of your changes until after reboot.
I have lately been converting all my Ubuntu installs to Debian. Kind of like a revival meeting. Basically I am wiping the ~/.whatever files from the /home partition and saving any that might be handy later. Save any files from the / partition that I might want something from (/var/cache/apt/archives for packages installed, /usr/share/backgrounds and so forth). The last one I am working on is a little different. It is the first install (successful) install I ever did, Ubuntu 8.04, and it is ext3 on one partition. I did the above things as on the others but it was all on one partition. Fired up my netinstall disk for squeeze and installed on 2 partitions. One new one for / ext4 and the old partition not formatted, mounted as /home on ext3.
Did a base install with only the system utilities added by the taskel business at the end of install (like always). Rebooted to that install. Every thing seems to work at the basic level. My passwords worked, both for the text user login and then the root password when I ran su so that I could purge nfs-common (it has given me problems on every install for some reason). Came back here to my usual Debian testing install, fired up boinc and then the chroot environment for the new convert. Installed gnome-desktop-environment and some other things, all from a list that I have used before in just this manner.
Go back to boot to the new one, every thing rolls fine, get the GDM3 login, enter password. "Can't access ICEauthorization". Have to Ctrl+Alt+b out. Back here I check the /home/tom directory for that install and hit Ctrl+H and there are no hidden files. Run "dpkg-reconfigure -a" to no effect. Try adding my user again and that, of coarse dose not work because the user already exists. One other thing is that if I boot to recovery it does show the message to login or hit Ctrl+D but does not stop with a prompt. Shows a couple other things and stops. Ctrl+Alt+B to get out once and had to unplug once.
I have a project and would like to create a .deb package that brought on any computer with debian distribution installs it in your home user who is installing.I followed a guide and managed to create a deb package from my sources with FPM. But creates them with root permissions and tells me that I should create a script before installation to change the permissions.
I'm trying to configure auditd to monitor "strange" events with apache2 weberver on Wheezy (though same problem occurs on Jessie), tried both with "vanilla" 3.2 and backports 3.16 kernel I am actually using.
Here's auditd rules I have problem with:
Code: Select all-a exit,never -F arch=b64 -S stat -F path=/var/www/server-status -k web -a exit,always -F arch=b64 -S stat -F uid=www-data -F success=0 -k web
So to recap, I want to log stat syscall failures for www-data user, but excluding some "known" issues, such as that "/var/www/server-status" (after a2enmod status, /server-status path can be accessed for statistics, though apache2 still tries to find physical file for that path and fails).

During two instances now I have had to create a .js file in a folder. In one instance, (POLIPO) I can create the file, I just cannot save it. I have momentarily forgotten the error message stating why. In the second instance, I have to create a user.js file inside my Firefox folder to allow cut/copy/paste functionality in order to fully utilize an internet forum. I have a Windows desktop at home and used URL...to "fix" Firefox. My laptop, however, needs to have the same capabilities and is running Ubuntu 9.04, fully updated, and Firefox 3.0.17, fully updated.
In short, I would like to know how to have complete control over functions such as "create file" EVERY time I want to. Is this a permission issue? I have only one user on the Ubuntu box. Also, how can I modify Firefox to allow for cut/copy/paste in the Mozilla Rich Text Editor?I am new to using Linux, so a minor spoonfeeding may be required.
