Ubuntu :: File Permissions Keep Changing On USB Drive

Jan 25, 2010

I use a USB drive to store most of my personal and work files, and I use it both at home and at work (two different machines, both running Ubuntu). The drive is encrypted, and is accessed using TrueCrypt (the entire drive is encrypted as a device rather than an encrypted file on the device). The TrueCrypt device is formatted as ext3/ext4.

I have a problem with certain file permissions being changed to read-only (rw-r--r--) after mounting the drive. This happens after I have used it on one computer, and then I mount it on the other. Even though I have been setting write permissions to all (chmod -R a+rw *) to get around this problem, when I mount on the other machine the write access is gone. I don't want to keep manually changing permissions; I would like the file permissions to stay as I set them.I'm using the same version of TrueCrypt at work and at home. I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 at work, and 9.10 at home.I do have different usernames on these computers, and I suspect that is the problem (but don't see why this would change file permissions for all users).

Debian Hardware :: How To Mount Set Permissions On New USB Hard Drive?

Jul 17, 2010

You know the great thing about having a debian system is that you have to reinstall so rarely you miss all the new changes that happen in the system until you have to do something like install a new piece of software and realize that fstab has been turned into spaghetti and you no longer have the slightest idea what is going on.I just got a new 1TB USB2 drive to use for backups. I plugged in it and it was recognized fine but it was formatted in NTFS which I didn't particularly want so I reformatted it as ext4FS. It automounts fine but only with all permissions set to root. I tried doing a direct chmod on the drive but that wasn't recognized. Where in the hodgepodge of HAL settings and whatnot do I set it to make the drive user accessible and mount to somewhere other than /media/disk?

General :: Setting Execute Permissions On Second Hard Drive

Apr 4, 2011

I am running Linux Mint on my primary hard drive, and I would like to access some folders I have on my second hard drive, which has Windows XP installed on it. However, whenever I try to use these folders, I am greeted with the error message, "The file is not marked as executable." While I know how to set files as executable whenever I am using folders on my Linux drive, whenever I try to set such permissions on my XP folders, I can't seem to make it work. The files revert to their former status, and I'm told that I don't have permission. Should I set the files as sharable from within XP, so that they aren't marked as read-only? Or is there another solution I've missed?

Fedora :: Weird Hard Drive / File System Permissions

Nov 29, 2009

I've been installing/tweaking F12, and I've found something that I can't say I've ever seen or expected to find before: the contents of my ~/Documents folder has lost its permissions and ownership info. I restored it from a backup last night/this morning, and I've rebooted a few times since then. Other folders from the backup are OK, just Documents.I don't know what my options are. I could try to blow it away and restore it, but that doesn't answer what caused it. If there's a "relabel" or something, that might help... though I've never had to do it before. Could it be that after these two-and-some-change years, my hard drive is giving out? Good thing I have a recent backup... but it'd be a shame to lose all my work getting F12 to work again.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Change Mount Options (permissions) On USB Hard Drive?

Apr 19, 2010

I'm running Opensuse 11.2 and am using a couple of USB hard drives to store large data. One of these drives is formatted with FAT32 and one with NTFS. When I plug-in a USB device KDE4 shows me a little pop-up asking what I want to do with it, I select to open it in Dolphin which of course automatically mounts it.

My question is what if I want to change some of the mount options - is this possible without reverting to manual mounting? And second question is what system does it use to automount - Fedora, Debian and Ubuntu are all deprecating HAL in favour of pure udev, is this the case in Opensuse too?

Installation :: Changing The Hard Drive Space On Windows XP And Ubuntu 9.04 Partitions?

Sep 14, 2009

I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my latop. I have an older 80 gig HP laptop with Windows XP. Currently, i have XP as the NTFS drive and it takes up about 72 gigs of space, the swap drive for ubuntu is about 256 MB and the ext-3 drive is 2.5 gigs. However, i have no more hard drive space to run or instal any programs on Ubuntu. So what i need to do is decrease the NTFS drive as i still have over 30 gigs of free space on my laptop and increase the ext3 drive to about 10 or 15 gigs and increase the swap drive?

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive - Error "read / Write Permissions" On The Folder Properties

Dec 16, 2010

i borrowed an external hard drive from my friend to back up a load of stuff on my windows partition before reinstalling it. I am doing this through ubuntu. I am trying to zip up folders like My Documents etc and chuck them on the external hard drive but it always comes up with errors to do with read/write permissions. In the permissions tab on the folder properties of the ext hard drive it says I am owner but i have no file access (only folder access is create and delete files). When i try to give myself read/write permission it just goes straight back to nothing when i look at it again.

General :: Move Smaller Hard Drive To Partition On A Larger Hard Drive?

Mar 16, 2010

My parents bought a new hard drive for a laptop that I've owned for several years. It's much larger than the current one, so I plan on splitting it up to dual boot it with Ubuntu.I have no problem with partitioning a drive (I always keep a LiveCD handy), but my question is this: how can I go about moving the existing partition to the new drive? This is a laptop, so I can't simply plug the new drive into another slot.

Also, even if I manage to move it, will Windows still work on the new drive in a larger partition? I've had this laptop for quite a while, and I've lost the recovery discs that came with it a long time ago. I also have a lot of software without CDs to reinstall them with. This makes not reinstalling Windows a high priority.

Fedora Installation :: EIDE Hard Drive Recognized As Sda Hard Drive

May 1, 2010

Trying to install Fedora 12 using the 6 CDs. Trying to install on an older x86 box.Problem is that when detecting my hard drive, Fedora 12 recognizes it as a sda hard drive instead of hda hard drive. I have no SCSI connected to my computer what so ever. It's an old fashion PATA Western Digital hard drive.If I proceed with the install, Fedora 12 only installs 200MB of the OS from the first CD only. No options for additional software or anything.

Networking :: Changing The Permissions Of Eth1

Sep 14, 2009

I often run "gulp", a networking utility, to capture data from an instrument on "eth1". By default gulp must be run as root to have access to the ethernet port, and when I'm the only one running it, that's fine. But I need to let several other users to capture data and don't want to give them all sudo permissions for both gulp, and more importantly, 'chmod'. Is there anyway to change the permissions of eth1 to allow all users to open it and avoid sudo entirely? This is on a Red Hat/Fedora machine.

Software :: Changing Permissions Of A Folder?

Oct 4, 2009

I've compiled my own code as root (long story why) anyway I now need to switch this to a normal user to compile. So I did a simple copy/paste (using gnome/debian lenny) to my home/user. I then logged in as used to see the folders with a padlock and permissions for root only. So I logged back in as root, change permissions to the used, check they were all ok, logged back in as user, and it still says owner root, even thought when I log in as root it shows user as owner.

Ubuntu :: Changing File And Ownership Permissions?

Jan 1, 2011

I installed Ubuntu from the alternate cd a few days ago to save space and resources on a very old laptop. (install command line, then add what I wanted) But I have struck an interesting problem with file permissions. Various programs like synaptic, leafpad, pcman, Banshee, all require I enter the root password to execute them (or sudo command from terminal). I want to change synaptic from root ownership to sudo and leafpad etc to execute without using the sudo command in terminal. I could get comments on the commands before I execute them in terminal and if I am introducing a security problem, as I am still learning bash. $ sudo chown sudo:sudo synaptic

I would still be asked for my sudo password before being able to open synaptic? As in standard Ubuntu instead of root password.$ sudo chmod 777 leafpad pcman Banshee All users could open these programs from the menu? I have my admin account and a general account which I use for everyday things like surfing the net and listening to music.

Ubuntu :: Usb Stick Is Changing File Permissions?

Apr 8, 2011

I have two computers (one at work, one laptop) that I use daily. Both are running Ubuntu 10.04. I frequently use a usb stick to transfer files from one to the other. Somehow, every time I do this, all files get turned into executables (as if I did a chmod a+x on them...)

This happens every time I use the usb stick. I've reformatted the stick, but still this problem persists... anyone have any ideas on what is going on? It is really getting annoying to have to zip up folders so this doesn't happen...

General :: Changing File Permissions And Authorizations

Jan 4, 2010

I first installed linux as ubuntu version 9.04 straight off of a Computer Active CD and liked it so started to delve into file permissions and authorisations, simple stuff I suppose just so I could feel my way around things for a while. Using the built in Ubuntu software centre I downloaded and installed a prog which handles authorisations and I found that very helpful but then through the update manager I installed the latest distribution update (9.10) and now find that the authorisation software only lists a couple of things that I can get to and consequently every time I mount one of my hard disks I'm asked for my admin password even though I am logged in as administrator which is a hassle,

a small one but there all the same, as a newbie I realise it must be me not understanding something but I just dont know what, also in the previous version right clicking on the logging out panel gave you an option to remove the 60 second shutdown or restart delay and that has disappeared in the new version, again its really only just a nuisance thing but I find that sorting out this sort of thing will help me to understand the system

Software :: Unable To Run 'su' And 'sudo' After Changing Permissions?

May 19, 2011

I'm running rhel6 64bit. Accidentally I ran % chmod -R 777 /etc and after that I have a problem to do 'su' or 'sudo'. When I did sudo it complained that /etc/sudoers has 777 while it should be 0440. I changed that and also restored right permission for:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1966 May 19 13:41 /etc/passwd
-r-------- 1 root root 1161 May 19 13:42 /etc/shadow
-r--r----- 1 root root 3746 Apr 23 01:38 /etc/sudoers

Anyway it failed to 'su'. Then I restored back permissions on files in /etc/security and /etc/sysconfig. Still can't do 'su'. Note: I could login from console as root but can't 'su' or 'sudo'. when I do 'su' it gives error: Password: su: incorrect password

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Changing Permissions From Root To User

Jun 6, 2010

I recently got a new external drive and backed all my files up on the new external: movies, music, docs, etc. Now all my files have permission rights to the root only. I was able to change this by open up nautilis from a terminal in root and change the permission on the whole drive to my current user so I can access the files, copy & delete the files. I wanted to change some music file information in Kynamo this morning and was not able to since all the individual files still belong to the root. How can I change this permission issue without having to change each individual file?
