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?
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 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.
i am downloaded some e-books in the format .rar. when i am extracting them i am getting error as There is no command installed for RAR archive files. Do you want to search for a command to open this file?
I have a collection of .MOV files which I want to turn into a DVD. A real DVD, the kind that will play in a stand-alone DVD player. I am not too concerned about fancy menus or anything like that. I just want something my parents can stick in their DVD-VHS combo and hit the "Play" button. I don't know where to begin looking. Has anyone done this? Is there any kind of a How-To or something? What Linux tools exist for doing this?
I am running Fedora Core 13 and I am having problem creating a bootdisk. As I enter the command mkbootdisk, I receive the error "command not found". I even tried to enter the full path i.e /sbin/mkbootdisk while logged in as root and I still get the same error.
I downloaded fedora14 iso and burned it straight to a cd but on reboot, it booted from my hd. My bios is set to boot from cd first.Next I extracted the iso to a subdirectory and burned that to a cd, creating a boot disk using the img file in the [BOOT] directory. When I rebooted, I got a cursor in the top left corner of the screen and nothing else
Every time I try to create a text file with gedit while using su I get this error: (gedit:2401): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported ** GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)
Aborted (core dumped) I'm following the Fedora Bible (2010 edition) and I'm trying to get KDE up. This is what it says to do: After running switchdesk or switchdesk-gui, you need to perform one other task. As root, edit or create the file /etc/sysconfig/desktop. Add the following lines to the file: DESKTOP="KDE" DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"
However, I receive that error. Does it want me to log in as root? I tried and it wouldn't let me, so I tried looking up how to do it, and I needed to change another text file with su (which is my problem in the first place). Just to be clear, this error occurs in any directory that I'm in. (home, or otherwise)
I just downloaded the new fedora and proceed to install it into a free space of 11GB on my HDD. As such the partitioner is unable to create more than 1 partitioneven if free space is available, it reports not enough free space seen if its present. As such it can create only one of the three partitions i.e., swap or / or /home duw to which cannot proceed ahead.' Some more details me running Xp as the other OS on my system.
Two nights ago I installed the KDE Spin of F15 and it all went smoothly. Then, I decided to try and use Windows' bootloader (it was a dual-boot) instead of GRUB. So I booted into Windows, spun up EasyBCD, added the correct entry for Fedora, and overwrote the MBR. I rebooted and tried to boot into Fedora, only to realize that the Windows Boot Manager had a failsafe that sensed when it didn't boot into Windows, and it stopped me from booting into Fedora.
At first, I booted into my live USB and tried to get GRUB back. After a couple Konsoles full of GRUB telling me that it couldn't mount the drive and install itself, I decided I was probably doing something wrong and it would be much easier to just reinstall Fedora.
I deleted the Fedora partitions I had made earlier from Windows (because it was already running). Then I booted into my live USB and tried to install Fedora. I clicked "OK" to make a partition (that would mount at /boot) that was 500 mb. It told me there wasn't enough space, but sitting right next to one of the already installed partitions was more than 190000 mb of space. So I tried to redo the partition with 250 mb, then I tried to make the swap partition and the main one (that would mount at /). I kept getting the error. I decided maybe it was a problem with the USB, so I rebooted into Windows and reinstalled the ISO onto the USB (with unetbootin) and repeated the process, only to get the same error.
P.S- I tried to use the option to "Use Free Space" as well as doing it manually and got the same error. Also, I saw another thread where a person with my same type of compute (a Lenovo Y560) had a similar problem. It might be possible there's a hidden partition for Lenovo's purposes? Anyways, the other user's solution was to move the an extended partition somewhere. I'll be posting an fdisk soon, in case I have the same problem as the other user. The other user used GParted, but it looks like I can use Easeus too, which I already have installed.
P.P.S- Here's the fdisk in case it will help:
Code: Disk /dev/sda: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77825 cylinders, total 1250263728 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

Does anyone have the name of a good program that will allow me to create text files with mathematical notations and symbols? I like to ptake notes at school on my laptop but I find it difficult to do so in my math classes. I just downloaded a program called Mirai Math. Haven't tried it yet but it looks a little to clunky. I'm looking for something simple.
the permissions for my home directory were accidentally changed from 'access files' to 'create and delete files', and I changed them back, but ever since then I am not able to change any preferences/settings at all. power management, themes, panels, emerald, anything. my user account is supposed to be the administrator, and all the user privliges are checked. how to get control of my computer back?
I'm wondering if there is any application being able to handle compressed SWF files. If I try it with mencoder (mplayer), it tells me:[swf @ 0x91a0a30]Compressed SWF format not supported No way in Fedora Core 11?
I recently bought a cowon S9 mp3 player because of its capabilities of playing ogg music files. I decided I wanted to remove some music files to replace with others bur after supposedly deleting them I found that there was 10gb still in use. After opening the folder for the cowon s9 and viewing the hidden files I found a "Trash 500" folder with the songs I thought I had deleted. The problem now is I can't delete this folder, even if I open the folder as root, it doesn't allow me to delete the unwanted files.
I've just switched successfully from ubuntu to fedora today. Basically I am really happy with fedora, most problems I had I could solve (with the help of the Internet). However 2 major problem remain:
�) I am unable to run .jar files. I've already installed the "Java" package from the repo, but it didn't help. When typing code...
worked without problems, however a quick test (.....) told me that flash isn't working. When I try downloading and installing flash manually from the adobe site I get a message that this package is already installed.
I have just got my network to work on Fedora, and now I have run into an new problem... I can't access any shared files or printers. The computer that has the printer and the files I want to access runs windows XP Home edition, and when I boot into XP on my machine, I can access the files and printer. Can this be fixed, or is Fedora incompatable with Windows XP in this case?
I normally tried yum lock for installing players like yum install xmms xmms-mp3 but it starts and when primary.sqlite.bz2 starts download it stops after sometime & try another mirror & finally never install what is the problem?
I have fresh CentOS 5.2 installed to 2 sata hdd 1.5 TB size; on every of that hdd is primary raid1 submirror of /boot made with md during install. All other space is lvm place, on lvm living root and swap partitions. And it's work. Now I want to mirror my root and swap, and add other volumes with different raid requirements (raid0 and raid1).
# lvcreate -L10G -m1 -n mir vg0 Insufficient suitable allocatable extents for logical volume : 320 more required Unable to allocate extents for mirror(s).
am writing a small search program for my class. I have decided to use indexing for my program. Ive researched online about indexing and how search engines do it. If im gonno do that I need to create inverted files to associate files to numbers ( numbers being the index of my paths ) . Now I was wondering what would be the best way to create an inverted file ? I was going to create sql tables using mysql api in C but then again there is no array data type or vectors to store few numbers in a single column in mysql and it is not advised to use Enum or SET
I followed the directions on the Ubuntu site and on the forum but am still unable to make one.I used the Universal USB installer (as directed by the Ubuntu download page) and the unetbootin utility as found on a thread in the forums. To ensure that it was not the USB drive, I've used a Kingston drive and a SanDisk drive. Both report "no Operating System found" when attempting to create the drive.I'm using Win7 x64 to create the bootable drive, and ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso as the image.
From the following link I have downloaded "Ubuntu 11.04 desktop i386" in rar form but when I unrar it I cannot find the ISO file to create a Live CD as the only one that can be burned with Nero is the rar file stated above.Or else wubi.exe or USB creator .exe.
I have the 11.04 version.I've tried to run Ubuntu One from the Launcher, but it doesn't do anything, so I have to go to the terminal and write sudo ubuntuone-control-panel-gtk Once it runs, the window opens, and where it should say File Sync is up-to-date it appears in red letters this error:
File Sync error. (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process /usr/lib/ubuntuone-client/ubuntuone-syncdaemon exited with status 1), next to it I have the option Restart, but it doesn't do anything if I click it.
If I go to the section "Cloud Folders" it appears:
Value could not be retrieved. (DBus exception: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process /usr/lib/ubuntuone-client/ubuntuone-syncdaemon exited with status 1) The folder Ubuntu One that should appear in my Home Folder, doesn't exist.
