I can't perform any of those.Except from the Terminal.I didn't edit any permission... nor installed anything.Don't know what to do.Also, "Move to Trash" appears grayed out, in the right-click menu (for all the files/folders).
I can't copy a few files from my pen drive. Got the files from a public computer, with windows. I use fedora 10.

Whenever i copy ELF or BIN files from the filesystem of linux i must get permission denied. For this case i have gone through the linux security module but didn't get much help regarding the permission denied only in case of copy of ELF and BIN files from filesystem. how can i proceed in this. WORK DONE:
1. Downloaded linux-188.8.131.52
WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE:
1. compile the kernel with some modifications in linux security module to get the desired results but this time i am unaware of that.
Im running Ubuntu 10.10 on my hp mini 110 netbook, have been for since i upgraded from 10.04. The problem Im having all of a sudden is when I try and copy anything from internal file system, to anything external [phone, card reader, usb hardrive] I get a pop up that says Error opening file '/media/disk/<filename>': Permission denied
Should be a quick fix i would think, what you guys got ???
I am attempting to make a backup copy of a file, but every time I try to copy the file, I get a "permission denied error -- even when running as root. The file is on a volume mounted as /media/Data . No problems reading/writing other files on the volume.
Here is the info on the file: -rw-------. 1 root MailServer.img
I've tried chown but get the permission denied as well. This is a virtual machine image that runs fine, but even with the VM completely shut down, I get the same error.
Quite a few times i have boot puppy linux live and have tried to copy file from the underlying NTFS windows HD only to get an error like permission denied when i try and copy a file to say a USB stick, i think some files copy but i seem to get permission errors with some files.
I'd like to view the log files, but when I try to view a log (such as daemon.log), I receive a message that says "You don't have permission to read the file." What do I need to do to have permission? (This is my computer. I've been an Ubuntu user for less than a year
I am somewhat new to Fedora, only having F13 for 2 months and F12 about a year ago on my dieing AAO. Anyways...I am trying to get the Apache web service up and running. Type in http://localhost and I get the Apache welcome screen. Now I try to add my webpages to /var/www/html/ and it says Error Moving File: Access DeniedI tried to find where to login in as root and find nothing. I am VERY unfamiliar with command line prompt other than for the yum installs
I had ubuntu 9.04 on a laptop, and it kept crashing, so I removed the harddisk, connected it via a Sandberg Harddisk to USB stick, and it works when I connect it to another ubuntu (running from livecd), but some of the files are locked, and I cannot open them copy them or anything else. What do I do?
I am not sure if this is posted somewhere else, if it is sorry. Anyways I downloaded files to my desktop from firefox and i need them to be in usr/local file, but if i try to put it in there it tells me permission denied. Is there anyway around this?
I have some files lying around in /root/bla/, all these files are 644 and /root/bla/ is 755. Still, when I try (as a different user) to cp /root/bla/file ., I get a "cp: cannot stat: Permission denied". I also cannot ls /root/bla/, I also get a Permission denied... what gives?
I have a dual boot Dell Studio laptop with Windows (VISTA) and Ubuntu (9.0.4) installed on it. I have recently installed Ubuntu to make it a dual boot. Before that I was using LiveUSB Ubuntu image for six months (without any problems).
During the installation of Ubuntu, I created a Linux partition of 2GB for Ubuntu installation (assuming that it was running successfully on my 2GB USB drive). All of my other work (e.g. documents/programming projects etc.) are stored on the Windows partition (which is loaded during the boot time automatically). The problem is that I get a "permission denied" error while running any executable file on the Windows partition. But if I copy the same executable on the Linux partition, everything works perfect. Am I missing something here?
I have verified that the executable have necessary execute permissions.
I have my ubuntu comp setup as a media server and works fine with mythtv etc but I also want to access the files from my computers in the other rooms (most have windows 7). I was able to share the file containing the videos easy enough by right clicking the file and checking all of the sharing options the first time. I have been able to access all the files that i originally put in the folder and stream video to my other computers without issue.
However any new files I add to the folders I am now unable to access. The files show up but when I click on them it says I don't have permission. I have tried unsharing the folder and redoing it but I come to the same issue. I am sure I am just forgetting an easy step but I can't think of what that is. Also want to make sure that any new files I add to this folder will work instantly across the network.
Just installed Lubuntu on my lappy having had Ubuntu 10.04 in the past and liked it. I dont seem to be able to get permission to move files though?I open LXTerminal and have tried the commands:Sudo nautilusgksudo nautilus gksu nautilusBut still I cant drag drivers into the driver folder? (/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers)
Is there no good way to assign permissions so that users can create files, modify files but cannot delete them? I know there's the sticky bit, but all that does is say that only the owner (who is a single user) is able to delete them. Ideally, what I want is to be able to use the sticky bit, but apply it to the file's group, rather than the file's owner.
Here's the example: I have a folder that is shared publicly. I want people not belonging to the folder's group to be able to create files, modify files, but not delete them. I want the folder's group to have full control. This would be possible if the sticky could apply to the folder's group, instead of the owner. I've looked into ACLs, but from what I gather, it's still just assigning permissions "none" "read" and "write," none of which would stop someone deleting a file, while still letting them create or modify (unless they were the owner, which is not helpful).
I have an apache installation with /var/www/bob as the document root and the only site served up. I have bob as the directory's owner, and he is able to upload his files to that folder via ftp (vsftpd on the server). When a browser tries to access the pages, it simply gets a 403 forbidden. The problem occurs when apache2 tries to access the files bob uploads. The www-data user (Apache daemon) gets permission denied when I try to cat bob's files in the shell, so it's purely a permissions issue. What I can't figure out is how to give the Apache daemon the ability to read bob's files while also making certain it does not have the ability to modify any of them.
im using ubuntu 10.04 sometimes i find more useful to use the terminal to copy or move folders or files to other directories (more important when they need admin permission)
today i tried to copy ALL files from a directory to another. and i realized that i dont know. i know that that "~ mv /ThisThing/ /ThisFolder/" "~ cp /ThisThing/ /ThisFolder/" but howould i be able to copy EVERYTHING from a folder into another. tis is diferent from copying the folder itself (which i also would like to know)i bet is a simple thing that i havent figured out!
I am trying to run matlab 7.7 (R2008b) on my ubuntu 9.10 distribution..the thing is that I am totally new with both matlab and linux and I get the following error message from matlab when I try to run an example mex-function:
Warning: You are using gcc version "". The earliest gcc version supported with mex is "4.0.0". The latest version tested for use with mex is "4.2.0". To download a different version of gcc, visit [URL] eval: 1: gcc: Permission denied mex: compile of ' "yprime.c"' failed. Error using ==> mex at 213 Unable to complete successfully.
I had gcc-4.4 as default on my pc, so after this error I downloaded an older version (gcc-4.1) and removed with rm the symbolic link in /usr/bin pointing to gcc-4.4 and created a new one pointing to gcc-4.1. Now when I type gcc -v in the terminal it says that gcc is in the packages gcc and pentium-builder, to do an apt-get install. I tried that but than it says that gcc-4.1 is already the newest version. It seems that I have multiple versions of gcc installed but neither the terminal nor matlab can find them.
I have to copy and move files over two systems all the time. So when I am on system 1, I simply use the command
Code: $scp * system2:/some_directory
There are many files in PWD of system1 with different extensions. Of all the files in the PWD on system1, I don't need a file called *residual.dat as it it particularly big and wastes a lot of time copying.How can I make a shortcut so that every time I do scp, it copies everything but the *residual.dat file?
We have two folders: source folder and destination folder. In source folder we have many sub folders and many files of different type!Script that would copy or move defined number of files from source to destination folder. Files must be selected randomly and sub folder in source folders must be selected randomly and we don't copy or move defined number of files just form one sub folder in source folder. In destination folder sub directory structure of source folder should not be preserved. Solution should be robust and as simple as possible.
I wonder if it's normal that when:-I copy files; -I move files;-I download data (files, video, etc.) from the Internetthe CPU is completely loaded at 100%. In comparison, on Windows XP (SP2), on the same computer, the same situation makes the CPU consumes only half of the processor, oscillating near of 50%.N.B. RAM is not affected by the above problem. My computer is equipped with:-CPU AMD Athlon XP 2400 + (2.0 GHz)-685 MB of RAM-Motherboard: SiS-741
i'm confronting atm. I need to create a folder where ppl can copy files and i need to be sure that those files cannot be deleted after they are copied there. The folder will be accessed over network, and i need to be sure no one will delete somebody else's files.Also i need to tell you that i'm working with regular users, so creating a folder for each user and chown/chmod-ing it won't do the trick(allready tried and ended up with a whole lot of files in the parent directory).I also tried chattr +a but that doesn't allow them to write new files in the folder.
