OpenSUSE :: Setting Permissions On NTFS Partition?

May 3, 2010

I've recently installed an OpenSuse 11.2 in what I'd like to be a definitive jump from windows environment.I'm not very confident yet with my linux skills, so at this moment I've yet have both systems installed with a data NTFS partition to store music, movies, documents, and general data that I'd like to use in any of the two systems. The NTFS partition has no writting permissions for anybody except root user, so I can't work anything from my personal user without starting an app like su or login as root. I want to change this by making a group (windowsWriters) where my usual user is included wich I pretend to make the group owner of NTFS partition.

I've created the group and inserted my user into it, but I'm unable to change the owner group nor any permission on NTFS partition or any of it's subdirectories. I've tried to made it through opening dolphin as su (Alt+F2 kdesu dolphin) and through chmod in consolemode logged as root, in both cases the action seems to work correctly and no error is spotted, however when I look again at the partition/folder/file permissions/ownership no changes have been made.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Default Permissions On External NTFS Partition?

Aug 15, 2011

When my external USB-HDD with NTFS auto-mounts, the default permissions are set to drwx------ 1 userid users. So only I have read-write but all others have no permissions at all. This is annoying because I have pictures on this drive that I share via an apache web server running as wwwrun. So I wonder how I can change the default permissions to something like rwxr--r-- so that apache can access the pictures?

Fedora :: Change Permissions On NTFS Partition?

Jan 24, 2011

I have an NTFS partition that I use to swap file back and forth between Vista and F13. I store school files in there, like documents and text files. When I use Nautilus to access the partition, I am always asked for my root password. This is a little annoying. Is there anyway I can keep this from happening?

I have my Windows partition set up to auto mount with fstab. I can access it fine in the command line and launchers that I created with out the root password. I suppose I could do the same for this partition, but I would like to access it directly with Nautilus if it is possible.

General :: Permissions Locked To Read Only On NTFS Partition

Jul 4, 2011

I'm pretty new to Linux. Though I've used it for a little bit, I barely know any shell commands. I recently migrated from Mint to Fedora. Installation went fine and I thought I was doing great until I tried to copy something onto one of my ntfs partitions (I got them automounted through changing fstab). Now I can't change the permissions with sudo chmod... it says I can, but nothing changes. And, while the folders are listed as allowing rw for the user group I set up, I can't actually change anything. I'm guessing I've done something wrong with my fstab file.

My fstab file is:

Code:

I should probably note that I'm using NVIDIA fake RAID 0, which is why my device locations are all /dev/mapper/nvidia_fcficeibp#

The command I have tried to change permissions is:

Code:

Ubuntu :: Assign Permissions On A Partition With Ntfs As The File System?

Apr 6, 2010

can assign permissions on a partition with ntfs as the file system. I am aware of editing fstab and setting some basic permissions. What I am clumsily dictating is can you edit permissions of individual folders for specific users in Linux. I have already tried chmod and such

etc something similar to this

Code:
[user@computername user]$ sudo chmod 600 directory

Ubuntu :: Setting Permissions On A Partition

Nov 29, 2010

I have just formatted a partition that had contained a windows OS, it is now formatted to ext4 and is dev/sda1 dev/sda2 contains my Ubuntu OS and all files although the empty partition shows up in Nautilus I cannot write to it as it is owned by root.I have done some research on changing the permissions on this, but am none the wiser!!

Enabling the root account is rarely necessary. Almost everything you need to do as administrator of an Ubuntu system can be done via sudo or gksudo. If you really need a persistent root login, the best alternative is to simulate a root login shell using the following command.I cannot find gksudo and do not know what commands to use in the terminal to achieve my goal. I am in totally unfamiliar territory here, and need some fairly simple explanation and guidance to be able to claim my empty partition so I can read from and write to it.

Hardware :: Ran Mkfs.vfat Over Top Ntfs Partition - Any Way To Restore Ntfs Partition Info?

Oct 12, 2010

I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.

OpenSUSE :: Change Permissions For NTFS Folders Based On Users

Nov 11, 2010

I'm a new openSUSE user. I want to make an account for my cousin, but we want our NTFS folders (from the dual WIndows XP install) inaccessible to each other. Problem is that, if I've read well in other searches, permissions can't be applied to NTFS (only the power to write, not only read, the whole partition). I know this can be done in Ubuntu, so I don't find a reason not to be able to do it, and I think my fault is that I'm using KDE (which I like more now, by the way) instead of GNOME.

OpenSUSE :: 10.3 - Setting Permissions On Folder / Subfolders

Mar 18, 2010

I'm running OpenSuse 10.3 and I've tried to set permissions on my folder and subfolders from root:root to wwwrun:www. In the shell it shows all folders and files with the correct permissions, but in the GUI it still says root:root and so my web application can't write to it, until I manually set the subfolders permission in the GUI.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Setting Correct Permissions On HAL Mntd Encrypt. Ext HDD?

Jan 10, 2010

I formatted a external 160 GB HDD (Lacie) with EXT3 and encrypted. The formatting went perfect. When I stick it into the USB slot, it is recognized and mounted by HAL. Hal asks me the password and then everything seems ok. But I have no write access. Only root has. I would like to use it to store my user data, externally, but encrypted. How can I set the write permission to make this possible? Why does HAL attribute the write permissions to root, even if I have given the password as user?

Filesystem EXT3
Opensuse 11.1
KDE 3.5

Software :: Changing An NTFS UUID - Restore An NTFS Partition From A Backup?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Prevent That Particular NTFS Partition From Automatically Being Mounted

Aug 21, 2010

I have an NTFS partition problem which prevents me from installing openSUSE on my desktop computer. It's not a trouble with installation, it's a security issue relating to NTFS.I have a desktop running XP exclusive, but wish to also go dual boot but can not because I have created a NTFS partitoin on my HD wich I don't wish others to know about.After booting window$, I am able to successfully unmount the partition using Diskpart, which is a command line program within that OS. Once unmounted, it is effectively hidden from those who might be snooping until I manually remount it. Essentially I remove the drive letter which makes it inaccessible to Windows.

(Yes I know a person with proper skills can easily find it, but that's not applicable in my case for those who would look)If I install openSUSE which I desperately desire, it will automatically locate and mount the NTFS partition I wish to hide, making it easily accessible to anyone booted up in SUSE.Changing the attributes to the associated files to "hidden" is not an option. I need that secret partion to remain unknown.How can I hide, deny access to, or prevent that particular NTFS partition from automatically being mounted in Suse? Once that security issue is resolved I look forward to using Suse again, like the other people do in our home.

OpenSUSE Install :: Fix NTFS Partition Messed Up By Qparted Resize?

Apr 22, 2010

I used QParted to size one my hard drive's NTFS partition to make unallocated space available to install SUSE. QParted created the the unalloacted space fine and I got SUSE up and running.

However, the NTFS partition is messed up. The QParted GUI and the SUSE's Disk management GUI shows it as NTFS drive with 319 GB space. However, nothing seem to be able to read/write to it. QParted gives a warning "Unable to read contents of this file system! Because of this some operations maybe unavailable." Is there any way to fix this NTFS partition so I can recover data from it?

OpenSUSE :: When Using The Yast Partitioner To Partition A USB Stick There Was No Option For The Ntfs Format

Apr 25, 2010

When using the Yast partitioner to partition a USB stick, I noticed there was no option for the ntfs format, but has the fat option. Is this a missing functionality/lib or by design? I have all of the ntfs stuff installed. I used to use gparted for this, but decided to make my self use the Yast tools. I like to keep them in ntfs format to get around the 4GB data transfer limit and have them readable by Linux and Windows.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Change Permission Of Mount Points For NTFS Partition Even As Root?

When I installed OpenSuse 11.2 it mounted I configured to mount all of my windows/NTFS partition. However, one problem is that only root can write to it. I was trying to change it to '777' permission. However, as root I can't change permission. chmod doesn't work and neither does using nautilus (as root) work.I even tried unmounting it and then doing a chmod. That didn't work either.

OpenSUSE Install :: New Partition On External Drive - Permissions: Root Drwxr-xr-x?

I tried two times to make an new partition (after the FAT partition on it) on my external hard drive with YaST>Partitioner.Fist I had tried ext3 now I have ext2 on it.Both times the partition (or the corresponding folder in /media) was only writeable to the superuser/root but not to a normal user (readable to the normal user). Root is the owner.The FAT-Partition on the same external drive is owned by the normal user who was logged in as I plugged the USB-cable in.I can unmount both partitions als normal user in natilus.1. Can I start nautilus as root to change the permissions?2. What have I done wrong? Should I use an SuSE Live-CD or an CD with an special partitioning-program instead?ng X20) openSuse 11.1 and Gnome 2.24.1 (mostly, 1 account is using KDE) and Kernel Linux 2.6.27.45-01.1-pae. "/home" is on an separated partition (as part of an extended partition). I have also 2 NTFS partitions for Windows XP (System and Data), and a FAT, a root (/) and a swarp partition.

Software :: Where Does Store Ntfs Permissions

Jul 15, 2011

From what I understand, linux applies mount options to ntfs. Then if I want to change a file's permissions, I suppose it stores them somewhere on system disk or memory? If a lot files need to have permissions changed in different ways, can this use a lot of space? By the way, in general when I write to ntfs, can I expect any kind of problems when windows accesses the same disk?

Debian Installation :: Critical Bug Of "mount -t Ntfs" Cause NTFS Partition Broken

May 2, 2010

About dual boot system with winxp and lenny.

Storage information:
1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100
1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133
SATA:WD 1000
2nd primary:DVD
2nd secondary:DVD±RW

Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.

info about lenny setup:
1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap
2.Every partition is XFS except swap.

At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.

Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.

But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.

After many times of trying.
I solved the problem by the following way.
1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0).
2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1)
After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0).
3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot.
windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.

The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.
