General :: CP Read Permission Denied - Cannot Copy Files From Pen Drive
Sep 23, 2009
I can't copy a few files from my pen drive. Got the files from a public computer, with windows. I use fedora 10.
cp gives the following error--->
cp const1.java /home/user1/Documents/scjp
cp: cannot open `const1.java' for reading: Permission denied
lsattr shows this--->
lsattr: Permission denied While reading flags on const1.java
mount shows this--->
/dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
I can't perform any of those.Except from the Terminal.I didn't edit any permission... nor installed anything.Don't know what to do.Also, "Move to Trash" appears grayed out, in the right-click menu (for all the files/folders).
Whenever i copy ELF or BIN files from the filesystem of linux i must get permission denied. For this case i have gone through the linux security module but didn't get much help regarding the permission denied only in case of copy of ELF and BIN files from filesystem. how can i proceed in this. WORK DONE:
1. Downloaded linux-18.104.22.168
WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE:
1. compile the kernel with some modifications in linux security module to get the desired results but this time i am unaware of that.
I am attempting to make a backup copy of a file, but every time I try to copy the file, I get a "permission denied error -- even when running as root. The file is on a volume mounted as /media/Data . No problems reading/writing other files on the volume.
Here is the info on the file: -rw-------. 1 root MailServer.img
I've tried chown but get the permission denied as well. This is a virtual machine image that runs fine, but even with the VM completely shut down, I get the same error.
Trying to use tcpdump -r TEST, and get permission denied, even though I am logged in as root or super user. Tried using the "chmod a+rw TEST" (any other file for that matters, yes it came from another source) and get permission denied.
Quite a few times i have boot puppy linux live and have tried to copy file from the underlying NTFS windows HD only to get an error like permission denied when i try and copy a file to say a USB stick, i think some files copy but i seem to get permission errors with some files.
My Freenas server is currently off line for the moment pending the arrival of some thermo paste and I need to get some files off one of the drives. The drive is formatted in the UFS file system.I am using a usb to sata converter to hook the drive up to my laptop which is running 10.04.I am then able to browse the files by going to my /mnt folder. The problem is I cannot copy any of the files. I get a permission error. I have tried chmod 777 command to change the permission but I get an error about it being read-only. I tried running nautilus as root to copy the files but I still get a permission error. Using nautilus as root to change the permission or alter any of the read/write options fails because the drive is read only.
From what I understand I can only mount the drive as read only because its UFS and I can't change the permissions because its read only. Sounds a bit like an endless loop lol.Running Freesbie (freebsd live cd) didn't do me any good as it didn't even detect my hard drive and I don't want to learn a new OS just to transfer my files.ny advice would be appreciated. I really don't want to wait until my thermo paste comes and I will be on the road for the next couple of weeks so I won't even be able to get it setup. I need these files now.
Im running Ubuntu 10.10 on my hp mini 110 netbook, have been for since i upgraded from 10.04. The problem Im having all of a sudden is when I try and copy anything from internal file system, to anything external [phone, card reader, usb hardrive] I get a pop up that says Error opening file '/media/disk/<filename>': Permission denied
Should be a quick fix i would think, what you guys got ???
I am not sure if this is posted somewhere else, if it is sorry. Anyways I downloaded files to my desktop from firefox and i need them to be in usr/local file, but if i try to put it in there it tells me permission denied. Is there anyway around this?
I have some files lying around in /root/bla/, all these files are 644 and /root/bla/ is 755. Still, when I try (as a different user) to cp /root/bla/file ., I get a "cp: cannot stat: Permission denied". I also cannot ls /root/bla/, I also get a Permission denied... what gives?
I am trying to run matlab 7.7 (R2008b) on my ubuntu 9.10 distribution..the thing is that I am totally new with both matlab and linux and I get the following error message from matlab when I try to run an example mex-function:
Warning: You are using gcc version "". The earliest gcc version supported with mex is "4.0.0". The latest version tested for use with mex is "4.2.0". To download a different version of gcc, visit [URL] eval: 1: gcc: Permission denied mex: compile of ' "yprime.c"' failed. Error using ==> mex at 213 Unable to complete successfully.
I had gcc-4.4 as default on my pc, so after this error I downloaded an older version (gcc-4.1) and removed with rm the symbolic link in /usr/bin pointing to gcc-4.4 and created a new one pointing to gcc-4.1. Now when I type gcc -v in the terminal it says that gcc is in the packages gcc and pentium-builder, to do an apt-get install. I tried that but than it says that gcc-4.1 is already the newest version. It seems that I have multiple versions of gcc installed but neither the terminal nor matlab can find them.
This is weird, today I updated my system and while trying to visudo from single user mode got
"cannot read /etc/shadow: Permission denied"
which kept me from doing anything until I switched to file permissions of 400 on shadow, then back. Is this being experienced by anyone else or just me? /etc/security/limits.conf doesn't seem like it wants to change in enforcing mode either and I can't find any alerts to provide clues on the situation.
I'm getting Permission denied even though I'm putting sudo in front of the command but, instead of asking me for a pass word it just says Permission denied "then" it askes for a pass. I enter the pass and it just takes me to the
prompt. I enter the command a second time and it says Permission denied again.
I am making the transition to either Ubuntu or Kubuntu in the next couple days. I have been running the Win7 evaluation version which is pretty much just Win7 Ultimate.Two are internal, four are external. All of them are NTFS. So are my pen drives (512MB and 8GB). Will these Linus distros be able to access these drives? If so, to what degree? Everything I have read online so far seems to give Linux a mixed track record when it comes to working around NTFS security, etc.
I have a cron backup scheme in which I rsync, then tar, then copy files on my internal hard drives to an external (USB) drive. When it works, it works. But I often get a "Permission Denied" message for all of these tasks. how the external drive is auto-mounted so I edited the etc/fstab so that the owner of the cron job is also the owner of the external drive (I think. Unfortunately, I'm not at that machine right now (it's at work), I can't give the exact fstab line (I will post it as an update to this thread next time I am at the machine).) BUT, I still get times when the cron backup runs fine and other times I get the Permission Denied. This is a shared machine that is dual-booted, so what I *think* is going on is that when the machine is rebooted to Fedora, but nobody logs in, I get a Permission Denied for the cron backup. It seems like on days when someone has logged in as the main user and left without logging out that the cron backup runs fine.
I have recently bought a new laptop, installed my first linux OS on it (Ubuntu 9.10) and an external hard drive with 500GB on it for backup. For the first few days my external hard drive was working fine, but then eventually it wouldn't let me copy/move/delete stuff to and from it. So I kept trying to change the permissions but it wouldn't let me.
I figured this would be a very very common problem, so I looked up some forums to try out the methods but they didn't work. So I thought I would ask you guys for help because I am pleased with the support. I wouldn't think this would be a hard problem to solve.
I have an external hard drive that has all of my Apple Powerbook G4 files on it. I plugged in my "Journal Extended" external hard drive into my new HP laptop with Ubuntu 10.10 on it.
All of my files are on the hard drive still, however lots of them have a little X on the folders and when I try to open them it tells me I don't have permission? How can I force the permission for everything on my external? It's my own files and I can't even access them lol.
I'd like to view the log files, but when I try to view a log (such as daemon.log), I receive a message that says "You don't have permission to read the file." What do I need to do to have permission? (This is my computer. I've been an Ubuntu user for less than a year
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 beta yesterday and most of it is working very well. However, I ran into a problem with permissions today.I have a HDD containing my home folder and a HDD containing my data folder. The HDD with the data folder is mounted on /media/data/data_1.
I made sure I had set a+x rights on the file, tried executing it as root but the permission error stayed.When I copy that same file to my Desktop folder I can perfectly execute it.When it's located on the other hard drive I can't. I tried several command line scripts and they all work when I execute them from my OS hard drive,but not from another hard drive.
An uncaught exception was raised: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/media/e6f6ac46-4bfc-487b-9c81-aab706ead9e3/boot'
The above is the error message I get when I try to create an usb-flash boot drive. I downloaded the iso for Mint10 and use the "create startup disk" program to create the boot drive. I can see both the iso and the flash drive within the program, but when I click on "create disk" I get the above error message?
I had ubuntu 9.04 on a laptop, and it kept crashing, so I removed the harddisk, connected it via a Sandberg Harddisk to USB stick, and it works when I connect it to another ubuntu (running from livecd), but some of the files are locked, and I cannot open them copy them or anything else. What do I do?
I have an apache installation with /var/www/bob as the document root and the only site served up. I have bob as the directory's owner, and he is able to upload his files to that folder via ftp (vsftpd on the server). When a browser tries to access the pages, it simply gets a 403 forbidden. The problem occurs when apache2 tries to access the files bob uploads. The www-data user (Apache daemon) gets permission denied when I try to cat bob's files in the shell, so it's purely a permissions issue. What I can't figure out is how to give the Apache daemon the ability to read bob's files while also making certain it does not have the ability to modify any of them.
I have a dual boot Dell Studio laptop with Windows (VISTA) and Ubuntu (9.0.4) installed on it. I have recently installed Ubuntu to make it a dual boot. Before that I was using LiveUSB Ubuntu image for six months (without any problems).
During the installation of Ubuntu, I created a Linux partition of 2GB for Ubuntu installation (assuming that it was running successfully on my 2GB USB drive). All of my other work (e.g. documents/programming projects etc.) are stored on the Windows partition (which is loaded during the boot time automatically). The problem is that I get a "permission denied" error while running any executable file on the Windows partition. But if I copy the same executable on the Linux partition, everything works perfect. Am I missing something here?
I have verified that the executable have necessary execute permissions.
I have my ubuntu comp setup as a media server and works fine with mythtv etc but I also want to access the files from my computers in the other rooms (most have windows 7). I was able to share the file containing the videos easy enough by right clicking the file and checking all of the sharing options the first time. I have been able to access all the files that i originally put in the folder and stream video to my other computers without issue.
However any new files I add to the folders I am now unable to access. The files show up but when I click on them it says I don't have permission. I have tried unsharing the folder and redoing it but I come to the same issue. I am sure I am just forgetting an easy step but I can't think of what that is. Also want to make sure that any new files I add to this folder will work instantly across the network.
I have a computer with Ubuntu 10.04, with few disk space. For downloading some torrents, I've connected a USB hardrive, ext4 formated. But this idea wasn't a solution, because the drive keeps getting read-only permission... Is there any way of prevent this to happen?
