I have noticed recently a somewhat alarming amount of weird 'isms' about Gnome. In this case I have my fstab settings for a specific HDD to automount a itself with user rw privliges. I am open to believing my fstab is not configured correctly so here is how it is written.
it automounts and I can unmount it as user and remount and so on. Using the command line I would have no problem making a directory with
md /media/backup/Pictures However, if I double click on the icon that appears or browse to the location /media/backup/ and right click in that folder I can't create a folder and when I tried to drag and drop into that folder it said I didn't have the appropriate permissions
I have a Node mounted from my Appserver (Solaris) to DBserver (Solaris), the reason why I Mount is that My Oracle writes file using UTIL_File in Dbserver only, so now I done the Mount and I can create file using VI in the Mounted point. But My UTIL_file is not able to create a file, the reason might be that Oracle writes only as ORA user and my Appserver has no such user, for that I have given the permission 777 for that particular folder, but no use, so I wonder do I need additional permission for this.
I am using centOS-5, I have mount NTFS drive by using fuse. But there is no rights and even there is no option on right click to make new directory or to del any file or folder. This is line of fstab for NTFS drive
How can I get full access and control on this NTFS mounted drive.
I'm using fedora8.When i mount shared folder on windows,it was mounting and i can browse the files and directories in terminal as i have full permissions on that.But,when i open the mounted directory in GNOME Environment,it was saying you did not have permissions to see the contents,every directory and file has been locked.
I have an Acer EasyStore NAS which I can access fine in Nautilus, but a server which I have been trying to mount via command line refuses to even let me view the contents of the folder. The mount command appears to work, a password is requested when connecting to the shared folder.
sudo mount -t cifs --verbose -o user=jason //nas/media /mnt/nas mount.cifs kernel mount options: unc=//nasmedia,ver=1,rw,user=jason,ip=192.168.0.250,pas s=********
But I cannot even view the folder contents, as even a simple ls returns:
ls: cannot open directory /mnt/nas: Permission Denied
Even on my laptop which is able to access all the shared folders under Nautilus I am unable to mount shares from the command line.
When I am in run level 5, I attempt to delete some 'trash' that has accumulated in the 'Trash' icon on my Desktop/.
When I right click the icon and select the 'empty trash' option, I get a permissions error so I just press the 'cancel' option however the contents of the 'Trash' have been purged anyways. It is working basically but I don't understand why I am getting a permissions error.

I'm using ubuntu 11.04, I'm having some problem of ownership while sharing folder/files. to share i change the folder share option:1. Share this folder, then followed by 2.allow others to create and delete files in this folder3. guest access.Now if someone in my local network edit any file and save it, it gets locked. if some one copy their file in this folder the permission is marked as "no group" "no owner". and they get unaccessible to me. i tried doing chown <user> <folder> but it says Operation not permitted. Now how i can possibly share my folder on local network so that they can be edited by others without getting locked down , if they copy files i can able to modify them.
Just moved to Ubuntu from XP. Whole process has gone very smoothly, but left with a small problem (i.e. it isn't actually affecting usability) that I don't seem to be able to fix and can't find on forums/internet. I also have a problem with the Floppy drive, but I've seen that problem elsewhere in the forums.
It's a dual boot system with both NTFS and Ext4 drives. All are visible and fully accessible. I decided to convert one of the NTFS drive to Ext4. That appeared to be successful and was successfully remounted as an Ext4 drive. The drive label is "Data". I did have a bit of a problem getting it remounted so that I could see/use it under my log-in as opposed to just under root. It's at this point I think that I did something to create the problem.
I now have two entries for "Data" in drop down menu for Places. The true one is shown as a standard hard drive icon, but the false one is shown as a different icon - possibly an external drive icon (note that the floppy drive is also showing as the same icon and I can't access that, but I've seen that's a problem elsewhere in the forums).
I can write and read to the true "Data" hard drive. If I click on the other false "Data" icon, I get the message "mount: /dev/sdd1 already mounted or /media/Data busy mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdd1 is already mounted on /media/Data". If unmount the true drive and try to mount the false drive, the system mounts the true drive instead. If I log into nautilus as root, neither the false data drive or the floppy appear in the left hand panel.
I've installed, overwrote, and deleted the partion with US to install again.Each time I could'nt login.I used 2 versions, 9.10 + 8.10. It can't be the login info, but the problem is probably that I hadn't installed any packages, e.g. Mail or Fileserver.Could the HDD not be mounted? I'll attach a GParted screenshot.
i know this is probably a really novice question.. but i can't seem to find where the mount direcotry for my mp3 player is.. its showing up in rhythm box, but when i look in media its not there, and when i click on places its not showing up either..
Concerning an installation of Ubuntu 10.0.4 LST.After update from Update Manager, where a kernel update was installed:
Code: mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/62643a8f-2322-4a0d-07842ff6a26 on /root failed: invalid argument mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: no such file or directory[code[,,....
After this, it opens up BusyBox - when I exit from here, it responds with "Kernel Panic - attempting to kill init."I assumed this means the kernel can't be mounted, but I'm not great with these matters.
Im having trouble sharing a mounted iso in narty. i have mounty installed which is what i use to mount my iso's with and i attempted to share the folder it creates in my home folder over the network to a windows based machine with no luck.
I have server in which I have 2 HDD. One is primary and in it is Linux CentOS. Last week my server stop to work and I reboot it. But after that reboot second mounted HDD in which I backup my files aren't visible at old path. Old path is - I login via SSH and there is folder named SECOND, but now that isn't case. I want to know, how I to see in which folder to enter, which one is for second HDD? I see both, but how to enter in it? And to see what is in it (my old data)?

I am able to burn DVDs with either Brasero or k3b, but opensuse then cannot mount them .Those DVDs do contain the burned data since I can see it and read it on a Mac.Never had any problems reading other DVDs. This is the first time I burn my own DVDs. So is there something particular that I should do when burning in order to make them readable on Linux? What shall I check for? The error message mentions a 'wrong fs type'. I didn't format the DVDs before burning them - just used them as purchased - can that be a problem?
I've asked about this elsewhere and have made some progress.
I have added this line to fstab
Doesn't appear to be a problem with this until I come to mount it from the console in kde. What ever type of mount command I use I have to run it in su mode for it to work. Doesn't matter if I use mount.cifs. Same problem. Mount then requests the nas access password for user john. I can then access the nas from my desktop. Seems a little crazy to use the root password to obtain the users nas password so what have I done wrong? One solution might be to run a shell script that has root rights but I understand this can't be done.
The reason for wanting to do it this way is problems with none kde programs rw to the nas and click launching etc. There seems to be something in KDE locking this out. Same problem with samba. Opensuse 11.4 kde4.6.0
Recently I was trying out a boot disk I had made, and basically, I switched it off several times due to it booting the completely wrong kernel. Now, I'm getting to the stage "Checking File systems" and then comes up [Failed]. I then get a message saying Reboot required, and that it will reboot in 15 seconds, just a few seconds before it reboots I get "/dev/shm not mounted, /dev busy" or something similar.
I've booted up my sysresccd, ran "fsck.ext4 -fcv /dev/sda2" to force a check and scan for any bad blocks, it came up clean, then I rebooted and got the same error, so I copied the kernel and system.map over to /boot to make sure there's no corruption and reinstalled initscripts and util-linux-ng, rebooted, same error.Tried different kernels, I've checked fstab and menu.lst, no problems there, so I still don't get why I still get the same problem.
I've just installed Slack 13.1, this was a "clean" install. All seems to be working well except for the dvd-rw, but this is a show stopper, if it doesn't get resolved in a few days I'll have to go back to 13.0.
The drive is detected correctly, but if a cd is mounted it gets errors, and is unable to set it up (it doesn't appear on the desktop).
