I am accessing network drive (Z:stream) on windows. Now the permission set on stream folder is like chmod -R 777 streams/ means all the files inside stream is at 777 but now i am copying some files from windows to this streams folder but permission on those files are not 777 ,i would like to have permission 777 on those files that copied from windows ...how do i do that??
Mount a Windows share where my user account has admin privileges. All permissions granted to the share on the windows pc side.Mount statement is as follows:sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=johndoe //winname/directoryname /mnt/tmp/Share mounts ok but does not let me create or write to an existing file. When I select Properties on the directory it says that permissions are unknown on the share looking at it from Ubuntu.
I have an ntfs partition that I wish to access as a normal user(non-root). For this I did the following. As root I created a folder /windows and did a chmod 777 -R on /windows. Then I added the following line to /etc/fstab
Now, the partition is mounted alright but the problem is that when any other user (non-root) creates a files in /windows (say by executing touch newfile) the newly created file has the owner and group set as root. The non-root user can create the file and he can also delete the file, however, he cannot change the permissions of the file and also the owner:group is always set as root:root. How do I get across this problem, i.e. how do I mount a partition, so that a non-root user can also change the permissions and ownerships of the files he creates.
I'm having a problem changing permissions on a network share. The share is mounted on my server using cifs. It has been working perfectly for a week or more. I use a bash script to copy files from a temporary folder on the server to folders on my HTPC that are mounted on my server.The server is Ubuntu Server 10.04 and the HTPC is XBMC Live Dharma.
The problems began when I added chmod lines to my bash script to temporarily change permissions. I had the entire mounted share set to 777 on the server, and I was worried that I might accidentally delete the files or something, so I set it to 555 and then modified my script. This was not intended to be a permanent solution, but I wanted to use it as a band-aid solution until I figured out how to do it properly. The mounted folder is called "tabitha" and it is mounted in the home folder of the user "turvy" on the server.The script looks like this:
I'm using ubuntu 11.04, I'm having some problem of ownership while sharing folder/files. to share i change the folder share option:1. Share this folder, then followed by 2.allow others to create and delete files in this folder3. guest access.Now if someone in my local network edit any file and save it, it gets locked. if some one copy their file in this folder the permission is marked as "no group" "no owner". and they get unaccessible to me. i tried doing chown <user> <folder> but it says Operation not permitted. Now how i can possibly share my folder on local network so that they can be edited by others without getting locked down , if they copy files i can able to modify them.
I have a few websites that travel along with me in my usb stick, and I want to have read and write permisions to files on my usb by other users (i.e.: www-data) actually they have 0700. I'm running maverick (linux mint Julia).
It's the strangest thing, I've done this on a couple othervers with no issues whatsoever... here goes:I need to mount a windows share to copy some files to it, so I used this command which gets no errors:
Code: sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=XXXXX,password=XXXXX,domain=XXXX.com //192.168.12.30/operrors /home/XXXX/scripts/operrors
I have a c file, and I want to open it but not in the terminal. After changing the permission, I tried: vi, pico, ed and vim. But, all open it in the terminal. How can I change the permission of that file to be opened and edited not in the terminal? When I change the permission from the terminal, it only let me edit it through the terminal, and when I check the permission of the file I see it as was it (no change). I need a permanent permission. Although, I command as a root.
I have samba installed. I also have a Windows NTFS disk mounted on Ubuntu. To share the file, I migrate to the folder with the file manager, right click on it and select "Sharing Options". I get the message
'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot share path /mnt/Windisk/<path> as we are restricted to only sharing directories we own. Ask the administrator to add the line "usershare owner only = false" to the [global] section of the smb.conf to allow this.
behavior in 9.04:plugged in a disk, mounted it and it as readable to the world.this is intended because it is shared via samba.behavior in 10.04:the disks have 700, meaning, they are not readable by samba.this is a problem.this is the best solution I've found so far:http://www.mail-archive.com/ubuntu-u.../msg10951.htmlexcept, that the mentioned means to fix this are gone.(gconf-editor -> ..., storage and preferences -> removable media)after 3 hours of googleing and reading I'm rather upset about this bug.so please, if you are thinking of suggesting fixed entries in the fstab or anything else that will not work with every media that is plugged into this box, just close this tab.
I'm having a some pretty weird problems with some mounted file share in Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS. Currently we are mounting several file share stored on a SLES Files Server onto our Ubuntu Web Servers using the CIFs protocol. Occasionally ( no rhyme or reason ) we will find that when you do a directory listing on the mounted share, while you are on the Ubuntu Server, there are no files being listed. Yet if you browse the SLES File Server or any other of the identical Ubuntu Servers (with the same mounts), the files are there ready to go.
Before using SLES for our file server we tried windows, and experience many of the problem you that you see on the forums of CIFs errors on the console screen. I'm beginning to wonder if 1. we can resolve the CIFs problems in Ubuntu 10, or do we need to down grad to Ubuntu 9 or 3.) change to something other than CIFs.
I have suddenly lost the desktop icon (of a hard drive) for a mounted network share. It is funny because, I have other network mounts which share the same server, and there icons are appearing, and this particular share just does not show up with the icon, even if I try mounting it different locations in the filesystem. Any ideas. I really like those cute icons on my desktop.
I would like to change the dialogue that says "permission denied" when something has to be done as root or that user does not have permission to do something. Is this at all possible? (Also, not really sure which category this should be in, that's why it's here)
I have a dual booting set up with Ubuntu as default O/S and Windows 7. wish to have Windows 7 as my default O/S. I tried by clicking Alt+F2 and entering 'Sudo gedit/boot/grub/menu.lst' but nothing happens.
I Have been trying to change a file in filestarter using sudo /etc/rsyslog.conf. but am getting a permission denied message. How do I get into this file to change it ? Firestarter is working ok but for some reason it cannot open the system log. I Have found what amendments need to be made to get this to work but simply cannot get access to the file
I am running Ubuntu 10.4 [64bit] on a AMD dual core with 4gb of RAM. My Problem: I am mounting to a Windows share from my Ubuntu box and everything is working as expected however, when a file is added, deleted, or modified the Ubuntu File browser does not reflect that change until the next refresh. The Windows users with Explorer will reflect the change immediately and automatically.
Is there a way to make the Ubuntu File Browser respond like Explorer when mounting to a Windows share? I call this behavior "maintaining state".
