What are the possible problem when Windows access the file from Ubuntu got Read Only even though have a full permission to read, write and execute the file? Ubuntu to Ubuntu accessing the file there is no problem only Windows got a problem.
Suppose I have a binary program with only execute permission enabled for the current user. How (in general) would I be able to obtain a core dump of the file? I think I have read it somewhere but I want to know if there are more ways of doing it.
I couldn't able to change file permission of files residing under /media/* Under /media all the NTFS partitions are mounted manually (gnome GUI) using root password. File properties of file under those NTFS partition shows SELinux context is "fusefs_t". I guess this is prevention from changing permission of file. How can I over come this?
I was always confused about the way it says that the execute permission for a directory means "able to list it". I just don't get it.Does no exec permission mean "still able to read files from in the directory, but not able to find out what files it contains" or what?
How can I give execute permission to chmod command from run level 3.Because in GUI mode we have the execute option in the properties of file. E.g. I gave following command chmod -x chomod After that I want to give the execute permission (x) to chmod command again but how from command prompt?
On an Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) machine, I burned a CD from the command prompt using: cdrecord -v speed=16 dev=0,1,0 /FPS.iso.The CD now contains an executable and some files. I tested the CD by loading it onto another machine (Red Hat 5.3) and when I try to run the program I get the following message:bash: ./FPS1_1: Permission denied.I can open other files like text documents (the executable also comes with shared libraries).I realized I had burned the CD as root so I burned another one as another user but I still have the same problem.
I have a program(that is written by me) which need super user permission to execute it. But I need to let the normal users to execute it without using 'sudo ./executable' and just './executable'. how i can set the program to execute by the normal users without using 'sudo' or password prompting.
I just setup a FireWire audio interface. Everything works fine, except for I need rw-rw-rw- permissions on /dev/fw0. I can always sudo chmod 666 /dev/fw0 just before setting the thing up, but then it will be gone on the next rebooting.The solution to modify /etc/udev/rules.d/020-permissions.rules (which is for Ubuntu Breezy) doesn't go well for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick because there is no /etc/udev/rules.d directory.
I have a triple boot system with Ubuntu 11.04, Windows 7 and Windows-XP on it. My disc configuration is something like this... ('cause I think it would be required for you to understand my problem) I have a 250GB hard disk which was originally partitioned with Windows-XP in six partitions C,D,E,F,G and H (All NTFS type) with 'C' drive having Windows-XP on it and 'D' drive having Windows-7 on it.
I installed Ubuntu on the 'H' drive by partitioning it into two halves of approximately 20GB each. One partition is named 'New Volume' as per Windows naming scheme. On the other partition I installed my Ubuntu-11.04 OS. As per my plan I would be using this 'New Volume' for all my Ubuntu related data and software only. I want to install 'Ant' build tool for Java to be usable on my Ubuntu. For this, as described on the Apache Ant user manual I downloaded the 'apache-ant-1.8.2-bin.tar.gz' and extracted it. All this I did in the 'New Volume' drive.
Now as per the 'Ant' manual I needed to change a file's ('/media/New Volume/ubuntu files/software files/apache-ant-1.8.2/bin/ant') permission to executable, which is currently set to '-rw-------' and I want it to be '-rwx------'. I've tried various things such as 'chmod/sudo' and also tried changing the permission with the 'root' user, but so far I've not been able to change the permissions for this file. However, if I copy the 'apache-ant-1.8.2' folder to '/home' directory then I've been able to change the permission for the concerned file.
I am shocked that I still don't understand "Execute" permission in linux. There are three permission - read, write, and execute. I understand that read and write literally, but what does execute do exactly? Let's say I have example.php with execute permission. What can I do with example.php?
i created a /tmp partition amd mounted it like this:" mount -o loop,noexec,nosuid,rw /usr/tmpDSK /tmp" I know i can't execute things in /tmp now but is there a way to execute only one file and no more???
I'm running WoW through wine. In order to install addons I need to give all the files in the program permission to execute as a program. the problem is I can't (dont know how) just right click the folder and give everything inside permission i have to open each one and give them all permission, which can quickly turn into hundreds depending on the addon. how to give permission to execute as a program to all the files in a folder at once it would save me a lot of clicking and time.
I want a quick and simple way to execute a command whenever a file changes. I want something very simple, something I will leave running on a terminal and close it whenever I'm finished working with that file. Currently, I'm using this: while read; do ./myfile.py ; done And then I need to go to that terminal and press Enter, whenever I save that file on my editor. What I want is something like this: while sleep_until_file_has_changed myfile.py ; do ./myfile.py ; done
Or any other solution as easy as that. BTW: I'm using Vim, and I know I can add an autocommand to run something on BufWrite, but this is not the kind of solution I want now. Update: I want something simple, discardable if possible. What's more, I want something to run in a terminal because I want to see the program output (I want to see error messages).
I am using Xampp on ubuntu 10.04 and I have set my document root to a folder in my home directory for ease of use with netbeans. There are several times where I have to manually go and change the permission to 755. If you just place a file in the directory it does not default to 755, seems odd since the document root folder is in my home directory. Chmod works fine but I was wondering is their a way to make all files or folders added to my document root to default to 755?
