General :: Unable To "read" Files In Either Directory?

Jun 1, 2010

Is it possible / how can I? I have two directories "money" and "assets". I have two users, "jonn" and "jean". I "need" john and jean to share a login called "post". I want John and Jean to use this "post" login to be able to write a file to folders called "money" and "assets". I don't want them to be able to "read" files in either directory. I tried chmod 400 and that didn't work. They couldn't write a file to the directory.

What permissions can I give / assign so that they can write a file but they can't read any other files? Remember, there are different directories that they will "write" the files to.

No doubt you can change file and directory permissions on files such that when you upload a file via ftp, it uploads fine but isn't visible to the uploader.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Read-only Files?

Aug 21, 2010

I'm trying to delete files on a USB disk. If I try using terminal using rm, because files are write only. I can't change this, even as root using chmod or unmount mount. When I use fdisk I still can't reformat, either as superuser or root. I get the following :

Disk /dev/sdh: 16.1 GB, 16064184320 bytes
7 heads, 37 sectors/track, 121140 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 259 * 512 = 132608 bytes

Ubuntu :: Ext USB NTFS Disk Unable To Read Files Created Under 10.10

Feb 9, 2011

Using Ubuntu 10.10 (installed via mythbuntu) I'm unable to read or see files/directories created under Ubuntu. I think it started happening after a reboot to Windows. Some of the directories created under Ubuntu have disappeared completely and some of them produce the following error:
/media/storage/videos/Kids Videos$ ls
ls: cannot access Justin Bieber: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Octonauts: Input/output error
rest of directory is seen fine...

Same on some files:
ls -l
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.mp4: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.nfo: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Dirk Input/output error
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.tbn: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Human Planet: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Russell Howard's Good News: Input/output error
ls: cannot access The Planets: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Lost Land of the Tiger: Input/output error
total 300160 .....

Just to make it worse I copied more data onto the disk from windows so may have lost some it completely. It there anyway I can repair this? When trying to check under Windows it says it can't. Some of the missing files can be reloaded but others can't. Ran chkdsk /f under Windows XP. Some files have reappeared, but there has been a lot of unrecoverable files lost. Conclusion: Ubuntu 10.10 is badly broken for writing to NTFS. As I would like to share between Windows & Ubuntu using the external disk, I'm not sure what to do at this stage.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba - Access The Shares But Read-only And Unable To Delete / Modify Files Using The IMacs

Sep 2, 2010

I have a few ubuntu servers which have samba shares on the network and for the most part have had little trouble with them. Recently we purchased a few iMac's for one of our deptartments and, while we're able to access the shares, all the files on them are read-only and we are unable to delete/modify files using the iMacs. This is not an issue with any of our windows machines (W2K, WinXP, Vista).

Software :: Program To Inspect Harddisk Location Of Files?

May 9, 2010

Does anybody here know a program (Linux-based or even Windows-based) which permits looking at the files structure of a harddisk in such a way that you can find out what file lies where on the harddisk?To specify further what I mean, back in the DOS days the Norton Utilities would show the distribution of files on a harddisk. It would show the harddisk as row upon row of rectangles, marked as used or not used, and the top left rectangles were the beginning of the harddisk while the lower right were the end of it.Now if a program put some files at the end of the harddisk it was possible to mark the filled rectangles and find out exactly which files were there.

Ubuntu :: Clone Harddisk To A New Harddisk?

Jun 18, 2011

how can I clone my installed ubuntu to a new harddisk? with 32bit ubuntu I have used:tar cvpzf -> create a tar file on my external nas system. after that I have done a restore tar xvpfz - worked with 32 bit.

Alternative I have mounted both disks and via another linux partition I have used:
cp -rvbdR /source/* /target

both methodes worked with ubuntu 32 bit. With 64 bit ubuntu I can NOT get it to work. error message after booting the clone: /var/lib/gdm/.ICEauthoriy ..

I can see that /source/var/lib/gdm has different rights as /target - will be part of the problem.
This did not happen with the 32 bit ubuntu - but why ?

General :: Kdialog And College Network - Unable To Read Policy

Sep 18, 2010

I am running Kubuntu 10.04 and as part of the registration process for connecting to my college residences network, I have to download and run one of thosese retarded Bradford Dissolvable Agent, it is a bin file and when I execute it I get: :~$ sudo sh Bradford_Dissolvable_Agent.bin Bradford_Dissolvable_Agent.bin: 92: kdalog: not found Bradford_Dissolvable_Agent.bin :: Unable to read policy Now you can ignore the fact it says kdalog instead of kdialog, examining the bin file in kate shows it's just a typo.

I'm not entirely sure what to do regarding kdialog, I assume it is installed (it's there in /usr/bin/), does anyone have any idea how to troubleshoot this further, Here is the first 100 or so lines of the script if anyone wants to take a look:

General :: Read Alternate Gnome Configuration Files?

Oct 4, 2010

I have a number of versions of gnome installed on a number of different hosts. All users have network mounted home directories. In some cases gnome works poorly when reading configuration from the .gnome2 directory. I would like to read config files from version specific directories. Is there any way to specify this when starting gnome? Environment variables perhaps? I know how to move the .gconf directories but this is not sufficient. I need to read the .gnome2 from a different path.

General :: Making A Folder And All Its Files Read Only Via Script?

Jul 14, 2011

Quick question. I need to ensure that all my files within specific folders are marked as being read only if the folders name is 'Forms' for example. There may be many 'forms' folders on the server within many different directories.It is a requirement that everything within these folders are marked as being read only but people are not doing so for whatever reason, and would therefore like for it to be done automatically i.e. a script executed by a cron job every eve to esnure that all files within the forms directories are marked read only.
