General :: Use Symlink To Provide Access To A Specific File Under A Restricted Directory

Jan 24, 2011

My home directory's permissions allow only myself access to it. Is it possible to put a file inside my home directory with.. say.. full permissions, and create a symlink to it so other users can access that file alone inside my home folder? System is Ubuntu Karmic.

Ubuntu :: Recursively Changed Permissions In Home Directory

May 23, 2010

I did a clean install from Ubuntu 09.04 to 10.04 and restored my files from tar.
Everything worked fine until I tried my weekly rsync backup.
The permissions seemed to be causing problems, so I recursively changed all the permissions in my home directory:

~/Documents$ sudo chmod -R 644 /home/wolf/
[sudo] password for wolf:
chmod: cannot access '/home/wolf/.gvfs': Permission denied
So now all the directories and files have read permission for everyone:

~/Documents$ ls -A
ls: cannot open directory .: Permission denied
~/Documents$ sudo ls -lA
[sudo] password for wolf:
total 80
drw-r--r-- 2 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-22 20:45 career
drw-r--r-- 23 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-02 17:17 computer_languages
drw-r--r-- 2 wolf wolf 4096 2009-08-09 23:29 .ecryptfs
drw-r--r-- 21 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-02 17:23 misc

drw-r--r-- 5 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-08 01:43 software_projects
Now I can't even look at my own directory:

/home$ cd /home/
/home$ ls -lA
total 20
drwx------ 2 root root 16384 2010-05-07 01:01 lost+found
drw-r--r-- 42 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-23 15:35 wolf
/home$ cd /home/wolf
bash: cd: /home/wolf: Permission denied
/home$ sudo cd /home/wolf
[sudo] password for wolf:
sudo: cd: command not found

Ubuntu :: Samba Symlink Change With 10.10?

Oct 10, 2010

I have a server with my music on it. There is a network share where all my machines can access that music. In the past I have created a link inside the Music folder of each user/machine which links to the Samba share. I have been doing this by linking to /home/[username]/.gvfs/share on server.

In 8.10 I am able to drag and drop to create the necessary link from Music to share on server. With maybe 9.10 I lost the ability to drag and drop the link and had to resort to the command line ( ln -s "/home/[username]/.gvfs/share on server" /home/[username]/Music ). With 10.10 I don't seem to be able to create this link using any method. (Any link which is created is linked to / .) (After 8.10 admin rights are required to create the link from ~/.gvfs/whatever.) This method is very handy as all of the machines and users point to the exact same location for their music (~/Music/share) and if I can't create that link this system of organization fails.

how to undo this?

"Simply change the symlink so that it points to /bin/bash. To do this, open a terminal, and type the following:

From now on your scripts should work as their authors expected."

Debian :: Some Of The Icons On The Desktop Changed And All Of The Icons In The Drop Down Menu On The Bar At The Top Of The Screen Also Changed?

Jun 19, 2010

I recently installed virtual box on debian and after it had finished my terminal informed me that I could remove some "unnecessary" software by use of sudo apt-get autoremove. When I did this, some of the icons on the desktop changed and all of the icons in the drop down menu on the bar at the top of the screen also changed to ordinary folder symbols. The theme that I was using also went away. I restarted the computer and it booted back into a shell prompt with no GUI. I tried to get back to the GUI using alt+f7 but it didn't seem to exist

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Share With Symlink?

Jul 26, 2010

I have mounted a samba share on my desktop from a remote server (with smb4k). There I created a symlink to "/". When I open the symlink with konqueror it opens the right one (the root directory of the server), but when i open this link with the shell (cd rootfs/), then it opens my local root directory (of my host)... Is it possible to open the right link with the shell?

Ubuntu :: Command Line Symlink Reallocation?

Aug 7, 2010

I'm running a clean install of Lucid on a new HD. I've moved over all my old data and files from the previous Karmic system, and am having trouble with a directory full of symlinks. This is a collection of links into my photographs, which I use for wallpaper with Desktop Drapes, and the directory has 1300 symlinks which now point to the wrong place.

I only need to change the first part of the link target:

I believe this needs the application of _ ln _ in a terminal to re-write the symlink, and the use of a bash line including _ if . . fi _ or possibly _ IFS _ ? I might also need to use _ sed, - but I'm not sure of the syntax for this.

General :: Why Can't Make Symlink Except As Root

Mar 13, 2010

In my MIDI music collection, I have a "best" folder with duplicate copies of only my favorite files. Recently I thought, why waste memory with duplicates--can't I just put symlinks in the "best" folder? So I tried to, in Konqueror. It would only let me make the symlinks from the Konqueror superuser account.

General :: Do Symlink Or Hardlink At Start Up?

Jun 7, 2011

Mint 11 64 bit

I'm trying to move a file from a directory to another one and create a symlink but seem to be doing something wrong. Have done "man ln" and looked up info in coreutils but I don't seem to be able to get it right. There are two files in ./home/jim/.config/banshee-1/ that I want to move to ./home/jim/Dropbox/banshee. I have created backups of both and created the new folder in Dropbox. see attached screen shots. I then run

Code: jim@saturn ~ $ sudo ln - ./home/jim/Dropbox/banshee/banshee.db ./home/jim/.config/banshee-1/banshee.db
ln: creating symbolic link `./home/jim/.config/banshee-1/banshee.db': No such file or directory and get the above error message. Now I know symlinks do not need to be complete at the time of creation, but I'm not sure if I have done this right or not and if I try and read and write banshee.db at the original location if it will do it properly and efficiently. Is this a case where I should do a hardlink instead and have both files. If I want to do this every time at start up, how do I automate the commands once I have them right?

Software :: KDE Paste A File As A Symlink?

Jun 16, 2010

if it is possible to copy and paste as a symlink.

It seems to me that the only way to create a shortcut or symlink is through the command line. I use KDE.

This was one of the most basic things Windows could do since Windows 95, and is one of the simplest shortcuts I dearly miss since leaving Windows.

Software :: How To Change Timestamp Of Symlink

Feb 10, 2010

I have a directory containing files and symlinks to files elswhere. I make a copy of the directory like this:
cp -rp dir/* new_dir

The files in new_dir have their original timestamps, but the symlinks have the current time. touch -t does not operate on the symblink but on the files they reference. Is there a way to set the timestamp of the symlink to a time in the past?

Ubuntu :: Symlink Unavailable Without Touching Target With File Manager

Apr 22, 2011

I have a dual-boot setup with Ubuntu and Windows 7, sharing an NTFS file system.If I create a new folder (called "newfolder") in the root of my Windows 7 partition, with a text file called newtextfile.txt, and then create a symlink in Ubuntu with ln -s /media/S3A8115D003/newfolder.I can then see, read and edit "newtextfile. txt" from Ubuntu, until I log out and reboot.After I reboot, the symlink to newfolder still appears to be there but when I try to access it, I get This link cannot be used, because its target "media/ S3A8115D003/ newfolder" doesn't exist.However, if I first navigate in the file manager to the Windows folder S3A8115D003/ newfolder and view its contents, then the Ubuntu symlink appears to be healed.How can I make the symlink work without first having to touch the target file with the file manager?

General :: Create Symlink For Every File Want To Include?

Jul 4, 2010

I have a CMS I have developed, which will run on several sites all hosted in sub directories on my dedicated server. I want to create symlinks for the main files of the CMS, including all config files, functions and admin sections. Then there will be a few files specific to each site.I read some tutorials on creating symlinks, although most are not very good in my opinion.

Do you have to create a symlink for every file I want to include? Or can I just create a symlink to a directory? For example:CMS is located at /www/cms/.Can I make www/domain1/ point to that directory, and if so, will all files include themselves correctly. I think I am a bit confused on how this works.

Fedora :: Change Lib Symlink Everytime Restart F14?

Feb 19, 2011

Because I am working with some 3d software, and to be able to start it I need to symlink libGL.so.1 and libGL.so.1.2 from /usr/lib64/ to libGL.so.1 and libGL.so.1.2 from /usr/lib64/catalyst/ folder. I move existing libs to new names by adding .bak at the end of file name.

But everytime I restart machine soemthing changes libGL.so.1 linking from libGL.so.1.2 (in catalyst folder) to libGL.so.1.2.bak (in usr/lib64/ folder), original file. And I can not start 3d software. Can I stop that from happening somehow? Why is that happening at all?

General :: Shell - On (CentOS 5), Remembering When We've Followed A Symlink And Being About To 'cd?

I'm trying to figure out how to tell the shell (tcsh) to remember when I've gone into a symlinked folder, and allow 'cd' to navigate back out of the symlink rather than just navigate to the parent directory of the linked-to folder...

For example:

$ ls -al /jobs
tech -> /mnt/projects1/tech
temp -> /mnt/projects2/temp
$ cd /jobs/tech
$ cd ../temp
../temp: No such file or directory.
$ pwd
