Ubuntu :: No Write Permission Even Though User Is Member Of Folder Group?

Oct 29, 2010

I'm having an odd problem (although I'm probably missing something obvious to a non-semi-newbie):I have a directory used for samba shares which is owned by user fred, a system user which the windows clients on my network authenticate with to access the shares. I, roger, want to access the directories without having to put my 'sudo boots' on every time, so I made the directory group users and added roger to that group, and changed the file/folder modes from 0755 to 0775.However I still do not have write permissions inside the directory; I still seem to be considered 'other' and hence only have read and execute.

General :: Write A Script To Move Specific Files In Various Folders To One Folder?

Nov 16, 2010

Terribly new to Linux and find it mindboggling. I work on brain imaging and unfortunately all of the analysis runs on Linux, and I do not understand computers well coming as I do from a medical background. So my question - There are various folders of patient MRI scans (folders called P1, P2, P3 etc) and within them are enclosed certain files that I am interested in (always called the same name in all folders, say image001). I would like a script that enables me to copy and move this image001 in all these individual folders to another folder altogether.

General :: Permissions - Manually Mount A File System Read/write As A Normal User?

Oct 6, 2010

I want to simply mount an ext4 file-system onto a normal mount point in Ubuntu (/media/whereever), as read-writable for the current logged-in user, i.e. me.

I don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab, I just want to do it now, manually. I need super-user privileges to mount a device, but then only root can read-write that mount. I've tried various of the mount options, added it into fstab, but with no luck.

Server :: Samba Share Read Only For Guests / Write For Some Specific Users

Jun 19, 2011

I've been reading for a while about samba but I haven't found a solution to my problem yet.I'd like to know if, the configuration I have in mind, is possible at all ("security = user" is what I'm using now).I want a directory to be:
1) read only for guests and some UNIX users;
2) write for some other UNIX users.

The advantage of this configuration would be that every single user in my LAN (with or without a UNIX account) would be able to read the content of the shared directory Music and I (UNIX user andrea) could manage the folder directly trough samba preserving the correct owner/group and permissions on the new files/folder created.

Notes about my configuration above:
1) as it is now every user gets authenticated by samba as nobody so even I (andrea) cannot write in it;
2) commenting out the line "guest ok = yes" I can authenticate as "andrea" and write in it but guest access is not possible any longer.

Ubuntu Servers :: Running Php Files Without Setting Read / Write Permission?

Jun 26, 2010

On an Apache2 server someone else setup, I have a folder with drwx--x--x permission and the php file can still write in the folder. But on my own setup, I need to set the same folder to drwx--x-wx. Inside the folder, I have a index.php that runs just by setting rwx--x--x but on my own setup, I need to allow read permission for others/group before it can run: rwxr-xr-x (or else I get a blank page). I tried changing the folder and files to root but it's the same.

Slackware :: Optical Drive Not Identified - Get Permission To Read / Write In The Device

Aug 6, 2010

On one of my machines the DVD/DVDRW/CDROM drive appears as /dev/hdc and is not identified as an optical drive by HAL. It is owned by root: disk and thus no users get permission to read/write in the device (not even those in the cdrom group). This stops playing DVDs, ripping CDs, no notifications appear when a disk is inserted, etc. etc. When I set the permissions for all to read/write from the device then users can access but still no notifications are shown.

On all my other machines the optical drive is identified as /dev/sr0 and is owned by root:cdrom . All have Slack 13.1 . Previously with Slack 12.2 this machine still had the drive in /dev/hdc but the permissions were right (I think because I added it to /etc/fstab with options for users to access it). I believe the problem is down to HAL not setting this drive to the correct group, but how do I fix it? I hate HAL, it has a mind of its own, just like in the scifi movie

Ubuntu :: Edit Options To Force Mounting With Write Permission To User?

Dec 29, 2010

I am digging the forum through and cannot find the answer. My problem is, the usb hard drive when plugged in get automatically mounted what is great. Unfortunately I get only read permissions, while need write too.There are no any entries in fstab, so I do not know what does handle automounting and how to edit options to force mounting with write permission to user (root obviously can write). Are they hald options or any other app does this? Where to edit them? The drive is not permanently ON, just switch it when need, so it has to work every time I put it on.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Change Mac User Files Read Permission?

Jul 13, 2010

I'm a new Ubuntu user, I just installed Ubuntu today and I'm loving it. But this issue has been driving me nuts all day, I've searched for hours for something like this and all posts were about external hard drives. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my MBP 13" then dual booted into Ubuntu. I can mount and access my MBP hard drive, but when it comes to the Mac home user files, I don't have permission to even READ.

How can I change that? I tried doing so by dual booting into Mac and changing the folder permissions and also making them shared folders but nothing worked.

Ubuntu :: Simulate A Floppy Drive With User Read Write

Sep 17, 2010

I have a computer with no floppy drive (x64 ubuntu lucid installed) I have a program (wine windows xp) that will only save data and export data from/to a floppy drive. I found information on setting up an emulated floppy drive. i.e.

sudo dd bs=512 count=2880 if=/dev/zero of=imagefile.img
sudo mkfs.msdos imagefile.img
sudo mount imagefile.img /media/floppy -o loop

I modified the winecfg to include under the drive section A: /media/floppy. Problem is I cannot write to the drive as a normal user. I have tried everything I know but only root can read write to the drive. Is there someway to set up this emulated floppy to allow me as a user to write and read contents.

Networking :: Run The Job Under A Root Account And Deny Read/write Access To A Normal User?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm setting up Ubuntu Karmic on my sister's old computer for my nephew, he's quite young so my sister asked to install some content filtering. I'll first setup an OpenDNS account and I've installed and managed to get dansguardian and squid working on a virtual machine to try it out. so far it's working pretty well, but I need to secure it form the inside out.

I was thinking of blocking specific outbound ports so he could not bypass the proxy. because by default the firefox configuration can be easily changed. so I have a couple of questions.

1. is it possible to block outgoing ports on Ubuntu?
2. is that the best method?
3. is there anything else I should be aware of to prevent subversion?

lastly, this question is probably unrelated to this board but I've set up a cron job to update a dynamic ip with OpenDNS, the problem is that the password is in clear text in the user's crontab, can I play with permissions? is it possible to run the job under a root account and deny read/write access to a normal user?

Software :: Create User With Password And Read / Write Privileges For Program Database

Oct 11, 2010

Unless your distro has taken care of it Centos 5.5, you'll need to create a user with a password and read/write privileges for program database. You can do this using the MySQL command line client if you are familiar with it. Well I am not familiar with it, so I wam wondering how to do it. As well when I run

mysql - p program </usr/share/program/mysql.sql>

It asks for a password. how do i find out this password.
