Ubuntu Security :: How To Change Permissions To Allow EXE And JAR Files

Apr 4, 2011

I've been using Ubuntu for a few years and I am having issues trying to load .jar files and .exe files in Wine. I keep getting an error message that says my computer doesn't have permission to load these files. I've done some research and found people saying to enable the file as executable in the files properties, to enable executable in the permissions folder, and to allow source code on the Ubuntu Software screen, but whenever I try to check these boxes, they immediately revert to having a line through them instead. I remember when I was running Ubuntu a few years ago I was able to completely disable this restriction in terminal, but I can't remember what I did.

Ubuntu Security :: Change Permissions Of Folder's Content?

Feb 22, 2011

Recently I've tried installing Calibre from the Software Centre, but it seemed to be glitching as when I press Update Source, the 'In Progress' icon shows up, but when it finishes nothing changes - the Update Source button is still Should I report this?Anyways, I've installed Calibre from their website to .calibre in Home Folder. However, the folder is 'locked' as it requires root priveleges and I can't drop files there without being the admin. I'd like to reduce 'open as root' files to minimum, so I was wondering if there is a way to change the permissions of all the content in one operation, preferably using GUI, and not the terminal?

In addition I've noticed that other folders in my Home Folder like Pictures/Wallpapers require root privileges. This is really annoying as when I 'experiment' with Ubuntu I use Live CD to make sure I don't screw up the main system. When I do I can't open some files from hard disk because of those root inconsistencies

Ubuntu Security :: Create 760 But Even If Change The Mask It Still Generates The Same Permissions?

Jan 23, 2010

I have a setup samba and want to get the correct security permissions when my wife creates / copies files from her camera onto the shared/mapped drive on her new laptop (windows 7) I want the permissions set to 770 or maybe 760. See my config below.

Now I can get it to create 760 but even if I change the mask it still generates the same permissions. After every change I restart the samba service. the umask is still 0022, do not know if that makes a difference? The directory permission's are correct with this mask. Do I need to look at groups?

Ubuntu :: Ownership & Permissions Change When Files Burned To DVD+RW?

Jan 18, 2010

After burning files to DVD+RW, the owner is changed to root, and all permissions are read only. I want to periodically open these files, update them, and save to the DVD again, but I no longer have permission and cannot change the permissions since I am no longer the owner. I tried sudo commands, but get responses "Read only file system". I have erased and reformatted the DVD and started over but get the same results.
I have Ubuntu 9.04, and have tried Brasero and Nautilus and get the same problem. Am I using the wrong kind of DVD/CD?

Ubuntu :: Can't Change The File Permissions Of Files And Folders

Nov 17, 2010

I've just read that I can't change the file permissions of files and folders if they are sitting in what was my old Windows D: drive. Is this correct? If so what is the work-around?

I don't want to have to cut and paste that entire D: drive's contents over to a recognised Ubuntu folder. I had in my mind that this D drive would continue to be my data dumping ground, to which I need read/write access to.

Ubuntu :: Change Permissions On Files So Can Copy Them Freely

Apr 30, 2011

My laptop has Ubuntu as a dual boot. Many times I want to copy files from one folder to another. But I run into permissions problems.

For example, I downloaded a program that required me to put a rules file in /etc/udev/rules.d But when I tried to do that, I got an error: "permission denied"

Is there any way to change permissions on folders so that I can freely copy them from one folder to another? That would make life a lot easier.

Security :: Debian Shows File Permissions Change When Copied To A Windows Partition?

Dec 10, 2010

Some time back using this computer a SucKit rootkit was found. Having dd urandomed the drive, flattened CMOS battery, flashed BIOS, run Knoppix live CD 6.1,using no flat pack battery (laptop), and memtested the RAM, I am still having problems with what I suspect is a javascript file that tries to reload the rootkit from? firmware. I suspect the firmware as everything else should have eradicated it??

Also it or a hacker via a backdoor then corrupts the drivers so devices malfunction. Windows security programs and rootkit detectors don't seem to pick it up. Fresh install of Windows or linux after the above still show this problem, though internet not used. The person who admitted rootkitting this machine is capable of writing java programs or using javascripts to do all this.

When viewed using Ubuntu 8.4 files and dates on a Windows partition appear normal both in file manager and terminal. However booting using Knoppix CD these files are all green, and I cannot change their permissions, even as root. ie: everything is green including text files etc. If I copy them to a linux partition, I can change their permissions and make them nonexecutable and nonwritable. Also on the Windows FAT32 partition the . directory has the date 1 Jan 1970.

If I disable any green files, I can shutdown and reboot cleanly. If I don't I start having problems shutting down [/usr/sbin/init ?] And always these follow a pattern:

Can't remember details as I have now corralled the beast but error messages relating to:

nfs-server
inet.d/statd

are the start of these.

Ubuntu Security :: Changing Permissions Of Files To Reflect Their New Folder?

Jan 4, 2011

I have a shared folder set up that allows all users on the computer to have access to all the music on the computer. In the folder with all the music the group 'music' has permission to add and delete files and all users are members of 'music'. This should allow all users to have complete access to these files, however, when I add files to the folder they retain their original permissions and do not take on the permissions of the folder. I could change the permissions of the files to reflect the folder every time I add a cd. But that is annoying. What I am wondering is if there is any way to make files automatically reflect the permissions on the folder they are moved into.

Software :: Change The Permissions Of The InfoBright Created Files?

May 12, 2010

I have a NFS shared directory between two linux machines, one with RedHat3 and one with CentOS 5.4.On the CentOS 5.4 machine I have InfoBright installed. In that directory, I want to create files with InfoBright and then to select from them with MySQL on the RedHat3 machine.The problem is that InfoBright creates files with 660 permissions and mysql with 666, and I cannot SELECT from any file due to the fact that is not "readable by all"(this is the actual error). I can change the permissions manually, but I need them to be created with 666 permissions, so that I can import them automatically on the other side with a script.Is there any way to change the permissions of the InfoBright created files?

Debian :: Change Default Permissions For Newly Created Files?

Jan 19, 2011

I'm new to Debian. I've read the documentation on this but it is too heavy for a new user to understand. I would like to change the default permissions for newly created files/directories.

I want all newly created files by 'user1' to have the default permissions of:
1. "owner can read and write"
2. "group can read and write"
3. "other can read only"

Permission 1 and 3 are already default. But I would like number 2 to be default as well. (the current default for group is read only).

General :: Chmod Doesn't Change Permissions On Files In Subdirs

May 15, 2011

I have a Qnap 219p NAS to which I have connected a USB external harddrive. I can access the external harddrive from my windows box using the network share, but at first i couldn't access the folders. The permissions set in the NAS GUI for the external drive is correct and are identical to the permissions set to the 2 internal drives.

I ssh'ed to the nas and used 'chmod -R 770 /share/external/sds1' - this granted me access to the folders, and some files. I can open all files in the root, but if I go just 2 folders 'deeper', i can't open the files in this folder, and in the folders after that.

In ssh, if i navigate to the folder wher I cannot open the files and use 'ls -l', i can see that the permissions (770) hasn't been applied to these files. How can I get chmod to apply the 770 permission to all files, folders, subfolders and files in subfolders etc., without having to chmod every folder one by one?

Ubuntu :: Change File Permissions To Change Background Screen?

Feb 21, 2010

I'm new to Ubuntu Linux but have many years on windows platform. Please can someone help me with how to change the following items.

No.1 I would like to change the HORRIBLE!! YAK!! brown background color behind the word Ubuntu in the start up screen when the machine loads up (before the login). I have located the image file for this which I have found to be: /usr/share/images/xsplash/bg_2560x1600. jpg but the OS says that root is the owner and that I don't have permission to change this. So how can I change this for a color I do like.

No.2 I would also like to change the login dialogue screen style. I know this is possible but again I'm fumbling to see how I can do this. I have tried with the start up manager but every attempt fails, the settings don't take. Once again I suspect permissions are at the bottom of the problem?

No.3 Would like to have a colorful splash screen image on boot up, I've managed to remove the old one (small white 3 ring ubuntu logo on black background) but havent been able to install or replace with a new one. Its been incredibly frustrating, I'm feel sure I'm missing something simple here. Wondering if its permissions yet again?

Anyone who can offer help on any of the above, guidance or advise me would be much appreciated. Please bear in mind that I'm still very much feeling my way with Linux so keep it simple.
