General :: Ubuntu / Sudo Also Doesn't Work

Jun 30, 2011

I have ubuntu server 8.x which works Ok but the other day I changed the owner of some files "the directory /etc" from root me. Now a lot commands do not work like reboot and such. So I tried to put ownership back to root and I can't. I say I dont have proper privilege. Sudo also doesn't work. I conect to the server using ssh with putty. What could I do to fix the problem? Update to the new version? This server has been working really well for a few years. The reason I changed the owner of the directory to myself is so I could edit some config files from my windows machine using a FTP client like WinSCP.

General :: Why Doesn't 'sudo Gedit' Work In Vinagre

Oct 13, 2010

I've set up a low cost box with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx at home behind a router, and managed to get remote access running. My goal is to be able to host a small website and work on it remotely, so I isntalled ftp (vsftpd). When I tried to edit the vsftpd.conf file in Vinagre from work, I could only open it read-only, no surprise. When I tried 'sudo gedit' or 'sudo gedit /etc/vsftpd.conf' from terminal in Vinagre, I received the prompt for the password to elevate privileges (again, expected); however, after I hit Enter, nothing happens. I've tried a bunch of different things, but I can't get it to work. I can stop & start my ftp service with 'sudo service vsftpd stop/start' and it seems to work fine.

General :: Aliases Work After Running Sudo SU Command?

May 7, 2010

I can make aliases fine by editing the .bashrc file in my home directory, but the first thing I do when I open a terminal window is sudo su so I don't have to type sudo in front of every command. The problem is, I am then not able to use my aliases. How can I make aliases that work after I run the sudo su command?

General :: "sudo Su - Someuser -c Xterm" Doesn't Work

Oct 2, 2009

I have a user A that need to log into a linux box, change to user B, and then fire up a GUI.

I've tried this:

Code:

[userA@server ~]$ sudo su - userB -c "xterm"
X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

Running "echo $DISPLAY" shows the same value for user A as for user B when I first run "sudo su - userB". I thought that if the $DISPLAY variable is set correctly this would work, but apparently it doesn't. Does anyone else here know how to get this working?

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I'm SSH-ing into the server, and have x-forwading enabled.

Ubuntu :: Su Command Won't Work, But Sudo Will?

Oct 16, 2010

I was attempting to install the fglrx driver on my new ubuntu insallation, following a guide I found from google. At one point it says I need to login as super user, so I tried and no matter how many times I try it just keeps saying authentication failed. I even tried typing in my password with 1 finger, multiple times, every single time, authentication failed. So I decided to try the sudo command with fdisk -l, worked flawlessly. Tried the su command again, authentication failed, I have no idea what in heck is causing this but it just won't stop happening.

General :: Printing A PDF From The Command Prompt Doesn't Work?

Oct 29, 2010

I have a PDF that I built using BIRT, and that works fine. At this point I'm trying to print it using lpr or some other command. It seems as though I should just be able to type lpr invoice.pdf and it should print to the default printer. However, lpstat -t shows "Empty print file!" for the printer, and the printer doesn't do anything, let alone print the file. lpr -l invoice.pdf prints the file, but unformatted - just a bunch of characters and whitespace on a seemingly infinite number of pages.

Ubuntu Installation :: "Error Booting Operating System" - Sudo Grub; Root (hd0.0)...) Doesn't Work

Mar 1, 2011

I installed 10.04 (clean install) on a 250G drive (partitioned to 107G for the system files). It was working fine, until I wanted to install Window$ for the use of Adobe stuff. I popped the Windows XP disc in, it loaded its files, then I tried to choose a partition for installation. There was an error saying that I can't do that, and needed to delete a partition blah blah. I thought it was too much trouble, so I quit and just wanted to use my 10.04. Booted, and it says "Error booting operating system" I WAS SHOCKED.

I tried to install grub (but don't need that right? I DO NOT want to dual boot now), but the usual method ( the sudo grub; root (hd0.0)...) doesn't work ,because something like "stage1" is missing. I tried many methods by still the same error. The reason I do not want a clean install is that I did many fixes on my 10.04 so that it would work with my EeePC 1001pxd, and I do not want to go through that again. I will be checking my email frequently on other computers if I have a chance.

General :: How To Alias A Command For Sudo

Sep 25, 2010

I have an alias that I would like to use both as a regular user and as root, via sudo. Specifically, it is this:

alias rm=trash This works fine as a normal user, and it works fine when I use sudo -i to get a root shell prompt, but if I use sudo rm, the alias does not apply. So where do I need to put my alias so that it works in one-off sudo commands?

General :: Execute A Command After Sudo?

May 4, 2011

I am working in a CentOS environment with numerous CentOS machines. Currently there are multiple developers that each have their own login/home directory and then for various admin tasks we all share a single super user account.

The problem

I have a number of aliases, variables, functions, and settings that exist in my personal login's .bash_profile. None of these are available in the shared super user's .bash_profile. My current work around is that everytime I sudo in as the super user and I re-execute my .bash_profile from my personal user's home directory. I am not allowed to edit the init stuff for the super user

The Question

Is there any way I can automate my sudo sequence such that it will execute my personal .bash_profile after I've executed sudo without requiring me to edit the super user's bash init stuff?

General :: Execute Root Command Without Sudo?

Jan 24, 2010

On my ubuntu I have a command pm-suspend, which puts the computer to sleep. It has to be run with sudo. Since it is inconvenient to be forced to type the password every time I want my computer to sleep, I thought maybe there's a way around it. Naively I thought that if I'd create a script as root, that invokes pm-suspend, and then let anyone execute that script, I could run that script as my own user and then that script would be considered run by root and hence be allowed to run pm-suspend. Obviously that didn't work. The root-check procedure in pm-suspend still found out that the original executor was someone different from root.

Still I think something similar (although slightly more elaborate) should work.I'm thinking about the process that allows the user to mount hard drives for example. Normally root is required, but it is somehow bypassed by the gnome utility mounting.

General :: Sudo Versus SU - SAX2 Command?

Jun 3, 2010

I've been using SuSE for a while and something has been bugging me. Not a show stopper, but nevertheless, an interesting one. Most tutorials, forum posts, etc. recommend using a sudo command to accomplish stuff. For example:

Code:
sudo make install
sudo vi file

However, this does not always work. For instance, I was recently working on a resolution problem with my ViewSonic VX922 - it would only display at 1024x768 rather than the native 1280x1024. Viewing some posts, I found the command "sudo sax2 -r". What I discovered is that there seems to be a big difference between sudo and su

Code:
drkhelmt@SPACEBALL1:">sudo sax2
root's password:
sudo: sax2: command not found
drkhelmt@SPACEBALL1:">su
Password:
SPACEBALL1:/home/drkhelmt: #sax2
SaX: Checking update status for intel driver
SaX: initialization already done
SaX: cal [ sax2 -r ] if your system has been changed !
SaX: startup
SaX: X server:0.0-> grant
SaX: importing current configuration
SPACEBALL1:/home/drkhelmt: #

So the question, why does the command sax2 (and others) work when after the su command rather than a sudo?

General :: Usage Of Sudo Command In Ubuntu And Red Hat?

Apr 18, 2010

In Red Hat, suppose if root user wishes to give a privilege to run the fdisk command to a user named sam.And he makes appropriate configuration changes in /etc/sudoers file. Now when sam wishes to run the fdisk command, then he has to issue:

Code:
[sam@system43~]$sudo /sbin/fdisk -l
Password: But in ubuntu, after the same configuration being done, what sam needs to do is:
Code:
[sam@somesystem43~]$sudo fdisk -l
Password: ***

That means, in ubuntu the user need not type the full path of the command. I wish to know how can I make red hat system work like ubuntu as far as the sudo usage is concerned.

Debian Configuration :: Ssh Doesn't Work After Sending Reboot Command

May 2, 2011

last week while I was using ssh to the computer1 inside a NAT as usual, I made another tunnel from the computer1 that I was connecting to, to another computer2 inside that NAT (ssh 192.168.1.130) and after making some changes in computer2 I typed reboot. The computer2 rebooted but the tunnel totally hung and I had to kill it in my laptop. Since that day I haven't been able to ssh to the computer1 as I am used to.

Here is some more information:

General :: Sudo For A Single Command With No Password Entry

Apr 20, 2010

I wish to allow a user to use sudo to run a single command (service app status) to determine if my application app is running, in my sudoers file i have: user ALL= /sbin/service app status I understand that there is a parameter called timestamp_timeout that will set the timeout for the 'user', but requires at least 1 entry of the root password.

I wish to allow the user to do "sudo service app status" and not have to enter the root password ever(maybe once is ok), but still make the user enter the root password for all other root activities. Is there a way to prevent the password entry for this command only and no others?

General :: Specify Password For Sudo Command When Running Bg Process?

Jun 23, 2010

I'd like to start a background job using the sudo command and route its output to a file. This presents a problem because the prompt for the password doesn't work properly. It looks something like this when I try it:

Code:
Mac:server user$ sudo php crossdomain_server.php > data/crosscomain_output.txt &
[3] 30303
Mac:server user$ Password:
[3]+ Stopped sudo php crossdomain_server.php > data/crosscomain_output.txt
Mac:server user$

Basically I'm not properly prompted for the password and as soon as I type anything in my background job fails because it didn't receive the password. Is there any way to execute a sudo command by supplying the password on the same line as the command?
