Ubuntu :: How To Create A Shared Folder

Sep 16, 2010

I have set up Ubuntu 10.04 with a data partition mounted as /share that I would like to make available to all users. I have only managed to do this so far by using chmod and chown, can I flag the folder so that all users can read and write from it automatically? I'm looking for something a bit like "Ignore Ownership" on a Mac.

Ubuntu :: Create Shell Script To Copy Contents Of A Shared Folder On A XP PC?

Apr 8, 2011

I was wondering if there would be a way for me to copy the contents of a shared folder that's running on an XP system using shell script. Actually, there are two shared folders that I want to do this with. I want to be able to launch the script and automatically copy all the contents of each folder into two separate folders on my ubuntu desktop. For example;

Lets say that I have Shared Folders A1 and A2 on my networked XP system and I have Folders B1 and B2 on my Ubuntu desktop. I want the script to automatically copy the contents of A1 into B1 and likewise for A2 and B2. During the copying, I want the script set up such that any pre-existing files in the B1 & B2 folders will automatically get overwritten by the ones copied from A1 & A2.Is there any possibilities of me achieving this?

General :: Virtualbox - Can't Create Directories In Virtual Box Shared Folder?

Jul 28, 2011

I'm mounting a shared folder in an arch linux guest on a windows 7 host in Virtual Box. The shared folder's filesystem is ext3 and is mounted in windows 7 with Ext2Fsd. I mount the shared folder at boot with this fstab:

D_DRIVE /home/tony vboxsf rw,gid=1000,uid=1000,auto 0 0

I believe my user in the guest OS has the right uid and gid:

[tony@kiwi ~]$ id uid=1000(tony) gid=1000(tony) groups=1000(tony),1002,(vboxsf)

I can create files and remove them fine, but I can't seem to create directories.

[tony@kiwi ~]$ mkdir foo mkdir: cannot create directory `foo': Protocol error

Its weird because the directory looks like its there, sort of.

[Code]...

Jun 11, 2010

I want to create a "Shared Memory" in linux, then create multiple "Shared Objects" that can access to a Table for example; And one of them can write something into the Table and the other can access and read it, so that these operations can be handled by programmer! I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 and I've set it's runlevel at 3 (I have commandline environment now!) I've searched the Internet so much, but couldn't find a good sample code for this!

General :: Unable To Share Folder In Suse 10.0 / Folder Defaults To Not Shared

May 13, 2010

I wanted to enable file sharing in for one of my folders under the home directory. I noticed that the 'not shared' and 'shared' always defaulted back to 'not shared'. And now I see what looks like an electrical plug icon symbol over the folder icon symbol like I might see used for some of the root folders. What does the new icon indicate about the folder attributes and why does file sharing default to 'not shared'?

Ubuntu :: Create Folder',and Results In An Empty Folder Being Created On Desktop?

Oct 29, 2010

I have this nasty habit of refreshing desktop in a quick succession by right-clicking and selecting 'Refresh',on my XP system at office.(And,iam sure most of us do the same).With Ubuntu,if a right-click on desktop slowly and select 'align by...',it simulates the XP refresh action as explained above.But,if i perform the same action rapidly,it takes this first option from right-click context menu,which is 'Create Folder',and results in an empty folder being created on desktop.I tried double right-clicking and again it created an empty folder.Is there any workaround to handle this.I mean:Can the right-click context menu items be shuffled so that the 'Create Folder' option is moved from 1st place

Ubuntu :: Shared Folder Not Accessible?

May 7, 2010

I'm having an issue setting up users for file sharing. In Ubuntu 10.04 (which is awesome btw) I right click the file, and share it on the network. I can see it right away on other machine, and login using the main user account on the server, no problem. I get an issue when I try to login to the share using additional account I setup. I get to the login screen, and it seems to accept the username and password as being valid (it doesn't bring up the login screen again), instead it brings up a error message saying it's unable to mount the share. It seems so much like a permission issue. I don't want to grant all kinds of access for these users, what do I do?

Ubuntu :: Possible Nautilus Bug With Shared Folder?

Oct 24, 2010

I've just discovered something I've not noticed before in earlier releases. I have samba installed but like to go the easy way when setting up smb shares by right-clicking on a folder and selecting 'Sharing Options' (That, by the way, sets up the configuration for the share in /var/lib/samba/usershares rather than in /etc/samba/smb.conf.)

Trying to get my Mac to be able to access the share, I was trying different modifications to the share with right-click > Sharing Options > Modify Share. Each time I did so, this caused Nautilus to restart - that is, the whole desktop blanked out to just the wallpaper and then my icons slowly reappeared. Worse, a file copy was interrupted. And much worse, a lengthy video encoding using OpenShot was interrupted. Both the latter irretrievably.This is unfortunate behaviour. Has anyone else seen it? Can anyone else confirm this? I couldn't find anything on Launchpad.

Ubuntu One :: Accept Shared Folder And Get Error

May 3, 2010

I am trying to share shared folder via email
myemail@yahoo.com to myemail@hotmail.com
When I click the link and accept button. I get this error:
Something has gone wrong (500)

We've recorded this problem and it will get investigated with the logs. If this problem is urgent, please file a bug report and include this number: OOPS-ID-1585appserver20308. For more general information on Ubuntu One subscribe to our mailing list, check our blog or follow Ubuntu One on twitter and identi.ca to get updates.

If I share a folder via email to abc@yahoo.com is it mean only share to abc@yahoo.com OR every ubuntu one user can access it if they have the link? Let user type in sharing title and message that appear in the email. This is because standard message and title always make people think that is spam virus and they ignore.

Website login problem:
Everytime I login at login.ubuntu. it doesn't automatic link me back to my storage and i have to type change login.ubuntu to one.ubuntu and click sign-in to login.

Ubuntu :: Cp Files To A Network Shared Folder?

Dec 6, 2010

I'm attempting to write a simple BASH shell script to copy some files from one of my Ubuntu machines to another Ubuntu machine's shared folder. I've searched the forums but I haven't found anything on simply using cp across a network.Since Nautilus can do it I presume I should be able to do it from the terminal or from a BASH script -- this might be my first mistake?I have tried the obvious:

cp My_local_file //Name_of_other_ubuntu_computer/shareddocs
and
cp My_local_file smb://Name_of_other_ubuntu_computer/shareddocs

but those don't work. Sharing is enabled for the shareddocs folder.
I have tried mounting the remote shareddocs folder but it seems I need to install some other package to do this? If this is true, how does Nautilus manage to do it without an additional package?

Ubuntu :: Win7 Cannot See Folder Shared Over Samba

May 10, 2011

I installed samba and set one of the folders on my desktop to share with my win7pc. However, I'm having some difficulty getting it to work. If anyone can provide some insight, I would be very grateful.

Both my ubuntu-pc and my win7-pc belong to the same workgroup. Each pc can ping the other. The ubuntu-pc can "see" that the win7 pc is part of the network; but it cannot communicate with the win7 pc. The Win7-pc does not show that the ubuntu-pc is part of the network.

Ubuntu :: File Permissions Of Shared Folder Using Virtualbox?

Feb 4, 2010

I am running ubuntu using VirtualBox on a Macbook Pro. I wanted to share my documents folder on the Mac in the virtual machine. I had no issues creating/mounting the share folder on ubuntu. However the file permissions for the shared folder are owned by root.

Code:

drwx------ 1 root root 1088 2010-02-04 10:18 Mac_Share/

I used the following command to mount the folder:

Code:

sudo mount -t vboxsf Share_Documents ~/Mac_Share/

I checked that the folder is mounted I can see what is there using

Code:
sudo ls Mac_Share/

How do I make the folder accessible to the user? Is there another -option needed to do this in the mount command?

Ubuntu Networking :: Share A Folder And Have It Remain Shared?

Mar 20, 2010

Every time I share a folder (using Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop), the share is gone after I reboot. How can I make it a permanent share that persists?

Note: I used the gui to create the share (if that matters). Once I get the share permanent, the next thing I'll want to do is automatically mount it from another Ubuntu Desktop computer on the network.

Note: this will be a "peer to peer" network. I don't have Ubuntu Server and don't intend to get it. Just have two Ubuntu Desktop computers.

Ubuntu :: Shared Folder Mounted On Startup - Fstab

Oct 27, 2010

I want to have a shared folder mounted on startup and I put the following in my fstab:
Code:
VMShare /media/VMShare vboxsf defaults,gid=1001,dmask=002 0 0
Where did 1001 corresponds to the virtual share group.

When I boot up the permissions are as follows(from ls -l):
Code:
drwxr-xr-x 1 root virtualshare 68 2010-10-27 15:45 VMShare/

So I'm curious why it's group permissions aren't the same as owner? In the fstab I put dmask=002 which should lead to rwxrwxr-x so basically full permissions for owner and group and read/execute for public. However thats not what I'm getting. Also once I get this working correctly am I going to have an issue if the virtualshare group isn't a users primary group? On some older unix servers I ran into this issue, hopefully it won't matter as long as the user in in the group.

Ubuntu :: Change Permissions Of Windows Shared Folder

Jan 31, 2011

I'm in an organization where each user has a Windows network username, and a central windows server with a folder for each user. I can access the folder using SAMBA and my (windows) network user name. I want to change the permissions (sharing settings) for my folder on this windows server - using only Ubuntu.

Had i been using windows I would simply right-click on the folder, go to permissions settings and add/modify users in the list.First of all, is it even possible to do this using Ubuntu?
