Ubuntu :: Changing The Ownership NTFS Volume?

Oct 4, 2010

(Ubuntu 10.04) I would like to change to change the ownership of one of my storage partitions from root to dad - I am currently reading through as much Ubuntu documentation as I can but the process is slow. If I gksudo nautilus and select the drive, right click/properties/Permissions the owner is set to root. If I try to change the group ownership from root to dad it looks like it momentarily does it but it stays at root.

using Pysdm as a gui for fstab - but so far I have only found out how to allow other users to mount the volume not own it. My fstab entry for this volume reads as /dev/sdb6 /media/backuphd2 ntfs-3g group=dad,users,user,owner 0 0 - it looks to me that in terms of ownership, root = 0 0 Can I find out what the ownership of dad is in terms of numbers (e.g. owner 0 1 or owner 1 1) and then change the fstab entry?

Ubuntu :: Changing Ownership From Root

Nov 7, 2010

I have an external usb hard drive, vfat, mounted as /media/USB STORAGE. It has on it's own(?) changed it's ownership to root. I need to change it back. I have tried 'sudo chown -R pbhill : pbhill /media/USB STORAGE' and get the message that no such file or directory exists. I can access it read only, so I know it exists. Am I using the correct command?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Install Firefox Extension If Profile Is On NTFS (NTFS-3g) Volume?

Jul 16, 2010

Reproducible with Firefox 3.6.6 (installed from Ubuntu 10.04 repository), on Dell D620, Ubuntu 10.04 Steps to reproduce:

1) start Firefox from command line "firefox -P"

2) create new Firefox profile on NTFS volume (mounted with NTFS-3g)

3) add NoScript extension (through extension manager Get Add-ons), restart Firefox as suggested

4) extension is not added to Firefox In case at step 2) profile is created on Linux volume, at 4) extension is added to firefox.I'm not 100% sure, but I think this bug is related to Firefox 3.6 update (no problems with Firefox 3.5). I did not make proper investigation, but I have feeling same problem applies to Thunderbird 3.1.This issue does not allow to share Firefox/Thunderbird profile on dual boot machine (Ubuntu/WindowsXP).

Ubuntu :: Changing Ext Hd Ownership From Root To User

Apr 17, 2010

I just got a 1.5 terrabyte Western Digital My Book 1110 external usb 2 drive. I used Gparted to reformat the drive to ext3. The problem I have is I can't change the file permissions for the drive because it says the drive is owned by root. I can't back up my files into the drive because it won't allow me to. I am using Jaunty Jackalope and got this drive to back up my files so I can feel comfortable in upgrading to Karmic Koala in case there are major problems with the upgrade.

I know someone out there in the community can tell me the commands to use in the terminal to let me gain ownership of this external drive from root so I can copy my files into it. the entire drive itself is seen as /dev/sdb One meg of the drive is unallocated and the part of the drive that I reformated is seen as /dev/sdb1 my personal files are owned by the name of dave

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 Servers :: Cannot Change File Ownership On NTFS Drive?

May 25, 2011

process of migrating my server to Ubuntu Server 11.04 after my Server 2003 installation suffered a HDD failure. All my data is on an NTFS drive (not ideal but not much I can do about that). I can currently only read the disk as a user. root has ownership of everything on the disk. Whenever I try and change ownership of a file it doesn't bring up any errors but when running ls -l it shows that nothing has actually changed.

General :: Change Permissions And Ownership For NTFS Mounts?

Apr 19, 2011

I finally replaced my Windows with Linux.. However, I need to run applications and modify files that are on NTFS mounts. I am unable to change ownership, permissions, and groups on these files so I may modify them without having to copy. I have several times attempted to chmod, chgrp, chown, etc.. while logged-in as root user; however it is to no avail. The owner and permissions are still geared towards root. can I change ownership and permissions on NTFS files so I can modify them without having to convert/copy them over to ext4 or different file system?- Matbtw: I am using OpenSuse 11.4 and running Windows apps with VirtualBox (with Vista installation image). I still have Win7 on my computer (non-emulated) and I would like to keep some files on those NTFS partitions so when I occasionally need to boot into Win7 I can modify those files because Windows blows and doesn't support Linux.

General :: Renaming External Files Changing Ownership Instead Of Root

Mar 28, 2011

i have inherited a mixed bag of sorts: several xp users updating an access mdb with the BE on a lamp stack shared via samba. i have a backup device which gets mounted at: /media/disk... each client record (has) a folder by the companyname on the samba share, and all relative documents are placed there. when the backup script runs, it just copies newer or missing files.

someone has been renaming folders, and not matching the folder name to the related companyname from the mdb. so...the backup script captures and duplicates the data in the renamed folders. some client records also have periods in the name (not required from a data pov), such as 'Company Ltd.' instead of 'Company Ltd'. i can produce a list of company names as the folders should be found easily enough, but get a little stuck with the linux scripting.

i can easily remove and further prevent any unwanted punctuation in the company name on the client record, and create the correct folder name on the samba share with vba, but would also like to:

-for each 'client activity' folder on the backup device
-rename the folder by removing punctuation marks
or
-delete the folder if is a dupe

i tried: ls -al | grep '&' - it properly returns only those lines with an ampersand in the folder name, but returns all folders when i try that with a '.'.

what would be the easiest method to do the renaming? i thought if there was a way to change ownership of the mounted device, then the vba code (easy to write) would be simple.

OK - i just ran chown -R on the external device, changing ownership to (me) instead of root. didn't want to because it took too long, but can now use the MoveFolder method of the filesystemobject from my app to do the renaming instead of some sort of bash script (which i was dreading).

Ubuntu :: Different NTFS Volume Behavior In 10.04?

May 17, 2010

Ubuntu 64 bit is installed on the hard disk with two partitions: one for Ubuntu, another is NTFS partition called Shared. Before upgrading to 10.04 Shared volume was available. To mount it, it was necessary to enter the password.After upgrading to 10.04, I see two volumes: Shared and Shared_. Places menu contains Shared item. When I click it, it opens without password, and shows /media/Shared_, with correct contents. Original Shared volume appears in the media directory:

Code:

root@alex-64:/media# ls -l
total 12
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2010-04-21 19:49 cdrom -> cdrom0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2010-04-21 19:49 cdrom0
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 2010-05-09 08:25 Shared
drwx------ 1 alex alex 4096 2010-05-17 08:56 Shared_

Shared volume is empty. Can this be fixed? It is OK to work with Shared_ volume?

Ubuntu :: Recovering Lost Data From An NTFS Volume?

Dec 26, 2010

You'd think that with two backups of all my data, which are syncronised twice weekly - that I'd be pretty safe. Fine and good until in a reorganisation of my documents folders,I delete a bunch of files - and don't notice until after I've run the backup - so they're deleted from the backups as well. Cue me beating myself around the head with the keyboard a few times about a week later when I realised.I'd advise against doing that if you have a keyboard like the IBM Model-M - it hurts.Okay, so I figure it's at least worth having a stab at recovering this data. The external harddrive's not had anything written to it since then, so is probably the best candidate. It's formatted as an NTFS volume (1.5Tb).

Now, I DO have a copy of R-Studio for Windows which I bought and paid for a few years agowhen XP managed to destroy itself and the file structure on the harddrive when it fell over installing SP2 (this was the event which lead ultimately to me switching to Ubuntu).I've found this to work quite well, though the initial scan does take a while.nfortunately, it does NOT seem to work from within Ubuntu through Wine. It runs, but can't see any drives. The only Windows environment I have access to now is Vista, andR-Studio seems to hang after running for an hour or so under Vista.

Are there any tools - preferably simple enough that I can get my head around them - which I can use from within Ubuntu to have a scrub through an NTFS drive to look for and otentially recover deleted data? I've found several tools which claim to recover things from ext3/4 drives from Windows - but not the other way around!There are a fair selection of filetypes involved here, some word documents, probably most of interest to me though are some old videos, mostly <5Mb taken on my old phone camera from university. Nothing really mission critical...but memories nevertheless.

General :: Possible To Put Home Directory On NTFS Volume?

May 25, 2011

I'm setting up a dual-boot system, and want users to be able to access their stuff regardless of what OS is currently loaded. Ideally, I'd like to set it up so that the same Firefox profile is used in both Windows 7 and Linux, as well as the same "home" directories, but I don't think that is possible. At best, I plan to use shortcuts and symbolic links to make it easy to navigate. In any case, is there any major problem with setting up both Windows and Linux to use the same partition for storing user's directories? The primary shared things will be Open Office/Microsoft Office documents and Firefox setups.

I haven't decided if I'm putting Ubuntu or Fedora on this system. I'm more familiar with Fedora, but need to increase my familiarity with Ubuntu. I'm going to go with whatever will give me the least hassles with the setup I just described. On the other hand, I'm unsure if I even need to make a dual boot. I have VMWare, and I'm not sure what advantages there are to making a dual boot over VMware in my case. The only advantage I can see is:

1. Having Linux as a boot option kinda forces me to actually use it once I choose Linux. Thus, I become more familiar with it, and need to reboot the computer in order to use Widows.
2. Linux gives me an emergency boot option is the Windows section gets corrupted beyond what chkdsk and the other emergency recovery options can fix. Counterbalanced by the ability to boot the old Vista OS that came with the computer.
3. The full resources of the computer are available to Linux. Not so much an issue today, but maybe in a few years. This is counterbalanced by the fact that all my games are in Windows, and I can't think of anything else I'd do with Linux that would put such demands on the system. Yeah, I might use it as a server, but that is more to LEARN how to set up and configure servers. I believe it is against Comcast Cable's TOS to run an permanent server with the necessary dynamic DNS registration.

I have no need for a permanent DNS server. If I need name resolution, I'd just put it in my hosts file. I already use that to block ads, so sharing it with all my systems is no problem. I don't have that many. So, the only reason I can really think of is to force myself to use Linux by booting Linux, rather than take the lazy way with Windows.

CentOS 5 :: Can't Write To NTFS: Volume Is Read-only?

Aug 22, 2010

I installed CentOS 5.5 32-bit with Gnome and want to use it as a file server. The volume I wish to share is a 1.5TB NTFS partition stored on a USB drive. I installed "ntfsprogs" and "fuse-ntfs-3g" to get NTFS support. However, I only have read access to the volume.

How can I fix this and get Read+Write to the NTFS drive?

Ubuntu :: Mounting NTFS Changing The Block Size?

Mar 31, 2010

I have reformatted my hard drive with allocation size 64K for a better performance on my WDTV HD media player(dealing with large files). When I mount this drive on Linux, the mount tells me that "blksize=4096".If I keep writing files usinghis default etting(blksize=4096) to my NTFS formatted hard drive, will my WDTV be able to benefit from the performance improvement of 64k allocation size ? Should I try and mount my hard drive with a larger blksize ?I did some research on google but couldn't find an option to increase the blksize when mounting an NTFS pre-formatted drive.

CentOS 5 :: Changing Volume Via MPD Client

Aug 19, 2010

I am currently using an M-Audio 7.1 PCI sound card on a headless non-GUI Centos5.5 install. MPD is running in the background for jukebox usage. The problem is, I seem to be at 100% volume output on the jukebox and I can't figure out how to change volume. Using alsaunmute to set volume sets some kind of volume on the soundcard, from what I can tell, but it's like that new volume setting is not being respected by ALSA. I can also set the volume using 'alsamixer' which also produces no noticable effect (100% is the same as 0%, as loud as could be from the PC).

I'm using the digital coax output from the soundcard for this - not the 3.5mm jack (due to stereo reasons beyond my control). Perhaps I'm not modifying the master volume? Thing is, when modify volume settings via an MPD client, such as Minion or one on my phone,�the volume setting does change in the ALSA software, but there's no audible difference. It makes me think alsa is not being used for sound control, but I'm stumped as to how to check otherwise. At least sound plays!
