network with a laptop with windows 7, a wireless all-in-one dcp-585cw, eminent em7075-dts. it's possible to create shared folders in windows, in order to make them accesble for other pc's, devices, such as the eminent em7075-dts multimedia player.
when i start windows mediaplayer ( a requirement), i can browse over my pc when i am on the interface of the em7075 ( what you see on tv when go to the hdmi channell.) in other words, i have the option to play / stream a movie from my pc, over the network to the em7075.
I am new to Linux. I have a new ntfs usb external drive. I have attached to the Linux server but can't locate it. I would like to 1. mount it. 2. format to Linux file system 3. and then create share folders with passwords using samba.
I have fedora on a parition. the root / folder, and a swap. I wanna try other linux, but i dont want to delete my Fedora. So I want to back up my Fedora whole disk data, can I create a disk image for Fedora so that later I can Restore it?
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 am currently in place where I get high speed internet connection. I am using F15 64 bit version. I've installed a lot of softwares and updated theOS completely. My question is is there any way that I can create a startup disk of my system so that I can install it in other system of same configuration.
I have a 80GB HDD on which I have installed Ubuntu10.04. I have about 45GB space remaining. I am trying to install Fedora13. I create : 2GB / partition - 2.4GB swap partition. I want to create 6GB /usr partition and it says not enough disk space? Why is it giving that message?
I got this information of creating raw devices and then starting the service service rawdevices start.But there appears to be no service 'rawdevices'. Please can anyone help me with this?Is there anyway I can create an disk /dev/sda7 and then link it as a raw device?
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.
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.
Why am I trying to create folders in the file system you ask? I'm messing around with Drupal and I want to add some modules. So I need to go to the blablabla/sites/ folder and add an 'all' folder followed by a 'modules' folder.No problem, right? Wrong?It seems I don't have the rights to create folders in the file system ( which I only recently figured out is actually root. duh. )I've figured out that I was able to install all the LAMP parts because I was using 'sudo' before every command, which apparently grants me temporary rights to root? ( I think? )Sooo... what's the magic for creating folders and transferring files to my Drupal folder... which it seems requires root permissions?
I have set up a dual boot system with Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10. I have upgraded Ubuntu to the most current version available online. I'm unable to create folders or subfolders in the Linux file system. I have researched the manual and my Unbuntu Linux book and see that I should be able to click on 'File' from the menu, then 'Create Folder', and then input the new folder name, but the 'Create Folder' selection is 'grayed' out which I conclude means that it is set on inactive and unable to be used. I am able to access my Windows disk by mounting and then typing in my password, so I have Administrator privileges.
I'm able to create a new folder in Unbuntu Linux for my Windows (NTFS) files. When I installed Unbuntu, I did not see any options to have write access to the Ubuntu file system. I can create new files within the existing folders. Soon after working out my Linux problems, I will be using PHP/MySQL/Apache to do some important work, so I will need to be able to create new folders and subfolders in my Linux system. I have some urgent tasks I need to do away from my PC soon, so I will be a while before getting back to this.
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 ?
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 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.
Based on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux 2.6.32, Gnome 2.30 and Xorg 7.4, Linux Mint 9 "Isadora" features a lot of improvements and the latest software from the Open Source World. anyways, I just done a fresh install and I cannot create no folders in my own file system, anywhere? It must be permissions, because when I try in terminal I get permission errors. Also this is my first Linux install
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 would like to have on unix-like platforms, the same functionality as to Windows 7 Library folders (aka virtual folders) you see in Windows Explorer.Gnome Nautilus do that kind of virtual folders through saved search. But I want a system-wide solution, not a gnome-wide solution.Is there a tool that creates virtual folders from the concatenation of multiple search queries (the result of multiple find commands ?). The solution should index files for better performances and you should be able to define the default folder for copy operations.
I have one cd program, but the cd is corrupted (tried to make backup copy in windows xp with alcohol 52%, but got error at about 95%, and i can not use this cd any more in xp - only for few minutes, then it stops...)
I made few days ago one .iso image, but without cd drive i can not run it (has copyright protection).
The only thing i can do now is to copy cd data. But can i make from this cd folder some virtual cd image in ubuntu, which i could transform into .iso image (using alcohol 52% in xp to avoid copy protection and enable to use it without cd drive)?
However, can I run a command and create symbolic links for all files in a given folder and its subfolders and have all the links be in one folder?
I have a file structure such as:
FolderA FolderB FolderC
and I want to have symbolic links for all the files in the A, B, and C all in one new folder (FolderALL) for example. I have hundreds of folders that need to be done, so a simple 1 line command would be ideal if possible.
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 can create folders in partition but i cant share them or change their ownership And here my fstab and fdisk list.About my hdds, on first hdd i have win installation as 3 partition and on second hdd, my lovely ubuntu and ntfs partition to use as shared in my LAN
