Debian :: Mount Partitions With Read/write Permissions Automatically As The Systeme Starts?
Dec 10, 2010
I'm new to debian ,I was trying to mount my NTFS partition but I did that only with read permissions I couldn't install ntfs-config(allthough I have ntfs-3g installed).So I want to figure out how to mount my partitions with read/write permissions automatically as the systeme starts ?
I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.
1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?
2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?
I am running Karmic x64 on a HP laptop that has a cd/dvd burner. I have a r/w cd with files on it and I wish to add/remove files to it. After it mounts automatically on insertion, I unmount it and remount with: sudo mount /dev/sr0 -t iso9660 -w /media/cdrom (I tried assorted other hare-brained things also) but it always says that the filesystem is read only. Do I need to use a different device than sr0? Is it even possible under Ubuntu?
I want to simply mount an ext4 file-system onto a normal mount point in Ubuntu (/media/whereever), as read-writable for the current logged-in user, i.e. me.
I don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab, I just want to do it now, manually. I need super-user privileges to mount a device, but then only root can read-write that mount. I've tried various of the mount options, added it into fstab, but with no luck.
When I mount an external usb drive on linux (CentOs4), the permissions are by default set to read-only. Since there are multiple users on the computer who need to use the external drive, I want everybody to have rw permission for the entire drive. I also want them to be able to mount the drive if the computer has accidentially been shut down. They can use sudo mount to mount the drive, but this will only give them read permission, and I obviously don't want to allow sudo chmod.
Is there a default setting that I can change so that every new external usb disk automatically gets rw permissions?
I want to make a new partition that I can read and write to from Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7. I haven't used Ubuntu much since 8.10 and it seems that I remember it being much easier to do then. I'm using this partition to store my music, pictures and videos on if that is of any relevance. I also need this to be something that can't mess up my windows side of my computer as I need that for work.
I have created directories in root. I am looking for the chmod command to allow all users read and write permissions to a specific directory. I have done chmod 775 for a file but I need this for a directory. This includes permissions on all files and sub directories.
I own a particular file on a Linux system. I would like to give 2 groups (accounting, shipping) read access and only read access, and 3 users(Mike, Raj and Wally) write access and only write access. How can I accomplish this?
I have apache2 running on my computer. I want to change the permissions for /var/www/ so that I can edit the files without a problem. Right now I can use the gksudo command, but I'd like to be able to have all the files available when using an IDE like eclipse. I've read in several places that Code: chmod 755 /var/www will do, but if I'm not mistaken that would give read/write access to anyone. I'm not in a production environment, so I'm not too worried about security, but I'd like to give anyone else as less permissions as possible. Would this be possible?
Just finished downloading a game in .run format, i downloaded it to my Home>Downloads folder and ran these commands in terminal: (game is tremulous if it matters)
chmod +x tremulous.run ./tremulous.run
It started it up in the terminal and i began working my way through the installation process, and i tried to install it into my Home>Games folder. (Is it supposed to be home>games or your username>games?)
and it said PERMISSION DENIED. No write permission to Home/Games/
How do i give myself read and write permissions to my game folder?
I have a file server running 10.04. I have a user that belongs to 2 groups (users is the primary and IT is the secondary). I have permissions set up so that this user and other users that belong to the IT groups can read/write files and others have no permissions whatsoever. I have also set the umask to 0007 so that any files created have the effective permissions. My concern is this: since my primary group is users, is it possible for me to create files with the owner group IT for only this specific folder?
I have 4 machines; all multiboot. I want each machine to have full rw access to file shares on each other machine, AND, full rw access to the other partitions on the same machine home folder for UNbooted OS's. I imagine Samba will NOT handle all these configurations? What else do I have to do, so that, for example, if I have 2 machines on, and I boot up a third machine in another room, it will auto mount the other 2 machines' shares, and it export it's own shares to the other 2 machines? I want also each machine to have full rw access to shares on the UNbooted partitions of each machine.
I used to be able to write to my SD memory card but just recently it is being automatically mounted as read-only. I checked the read-only tab and tried to set it to the lock position, and to the unlock position. Neither position makes a difference. It was working normally a few days ago. I also tried changing the permission using su
ls -lt gives the following result drwxr-xr-x 4 col root 16384 1970-01-01 01:00 CANON_DC chmod chgrp and chown in su mode don't change anything either.
I tried mounting a different 1GB SD card and it works perfectly. I noticed that when I mount this card I get a window asking me what I want to do, but I don't get this on the other card. It must some kind of setting related to the unwriteable card.
Ubuntu is automatically mounting all windows partitions. I wanted to mount only one common partition i,e NTFS storage partition to mount and used for both OSs i,e windows and Ubuntu. I unticked all partitions in NTFS configuration tools but in vain.
sudden of all all USB drives and sticks I put into a PC will not mount with read/write permissions (they did before). I can still copy to them, but only when I am root. I am on Maverick I've noticed though that if I run disk utility, then UNMOUNT the partition, Check File System, Mount the partition back, I get read/write access..
I have 4 partitions. One is Ext4 for Karmic, one is NTFS for WinXP, and the other two are Ext4 where I keep all my stuff.When I boot into Karmic and open Nautilus, none of the last three are auto mounted. When I click on one of them, instead of a window popping out asking me for a sudo password, I get a message as shown below.f I try to mount via sudo in terminal it works, but the files for me are then all read-only. Again, if I open Nautilus as root, all works fine.What I want is the following:- for all 3 partitions to automount on startup;- for all 3 partitions to be owned by me and not by root.I tried editing /etc/fstab, but to no avail. Neither did running "chown" help.
/etc/fstab: # /etc/fstab: static file system information. #
I'm using Kubuntu 9.10. Partitions get listed in the sidebar when I open the File Manager, but they don't get mounted under /media until I click on the entries. I do not want to use /etc/mtab and mount them under folders I create in /mnt; would prefer if there was a way to mount the partitions without Kubuntu waiting for me to click on the names.
how do i give group write permissions in fstab? i'm trying to mount a virtualbox shared folder. currently my fstab looks like this Code: Share_Name /mnt/point vboxsf rw,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0 i want to give both the owner and group, write permissions. currently, only the owner has write permissions, and group read with these mount options.
I'm trying to set up sshfs on a desktop/fileserver so that I can mount its HDD's I use for storage on my laptops. My issue seems to be getting permission to write to the mounted drives. I just keep getting permission denied. here is what I think are some relevant tidbits. mount point on server,
It was running squeeze before it became stable. X was running fine and loading automatically on booting. Then I did not use it for some time. Then I ran apt-get updates and upgrades after squeeze became stable. A few packages were kept back. So I did aptitude dist-upgradeIt installed some things and maybe removed some things. After that it will boot only toconsole. When I do startx on the command line, X session starts and everything seems normal. But it will not boot to the GUI like before. I also checked in the Synaptic and saw xorg and xserver-xorg still installed
We have a network with several computer. We have two file servers (don't ask why) an Ubuntu and an XP as well as many clients. Setting shares on Ubuntu was easy and all clients can see them read and write. but I can't get the Ubuntu clients to see the SMB shares on the XP properly. This is my fstab:
I don't want to have to download the kernel source and uncomment out CONFIG_UFS_FS_WRITE=yes and build a custom kernel ever time I update the kernel. Is there a better way? Like when Ubuntu.deb repositories claim a stable kernel is there an auto config script when installing from synaptic -or- aptitude? Like any way to add this one config opt to .deb kernel W/O building custom one from source?
After installing the "fuse" and "fuse-ntfs-3g" packages, my ntfs formatted thumb drive mounts read only, as follows:# mount.../dev/sdb1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,default_permissions,blksize=4096)
I need some assistance mount a UFS2 partition as read and write. if its not possible, then I may have to copy a few hundred GBs of data. Currently using the command: Code: mount -r -t ufs -o ufstype=UFS2 /dev/sdb /Data Thats just read only.
