i log in and went to the policy folder to erase the file prefernces.fdi and it would not let me delete this file /move it to the trash or even edit it it said something like you are not the owner ,so i could not change the permissions to overwrite this file.what should i do i just want to be able to change this file to true so it will see my internal sc dar reader right now when i put in a sd card it does not show up.i also tried changing this in the terminal there was a post on one blog that showed how ,but i was having trouble edit the xml file in the terminal so for me it would be easier to just overwrite the prefernces.fdi file since im a beginner.
i want to edit the file menu.lst in /boot/grub i m facing a problem of not to enter in to the graphical interphase, so i m using only the boot terminal whn i try to edit this file it says the file is read only. i tried to change the permission of file with chmod also but it is also not working i tried the comand gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst but it is not opening the file to edit since the graphical interphase is not there.
I have apache2 running on my computer. I want to change the permissions for /var/www/ so that I can edit the files without a problem. Right now I can use the gksudo command, but I'd like to be able to have all the files available when using an IDE like eclipse. I've read in several places that Code: chmod 755 /var/www will do, but if I'm not mistaken that would give read/write access to anyone. I'm not in a production environment, so I'm not too worried about security, but I'd like to give anyone else as less permissions as possible. Would this be possible?
I am trying to edit my grub.conf file. I am logged in as root. It says it is a read only file. I have tried to set permission with chmod 777 and also tried through GUI. Using VI it says it's a read only file. Using nano it will not write either. I have two choices on boot up. I want to automatically go to second automatically. First at the moment is CentOS-4 i386 (2.6.9-55.ELsmp) and second is CentOS-4 i386 (2.6.9-55.EL).
What are the possible problem when Windows access the file from Ubuntu got Read Only even though have a full permission to read, write and execute the file? Ubuntu to Ubuntu accessing the file there is no problem only Windows got a problem.
I was unable to boot into Ubuntu 9.1 today because the file system is now read only. When I check fstab, it shows "ro" but I can't change it because it's on a read only file system. I tried umounting the root then remounting with read/write access, but I was unable to umount the root. I also tried booting with a live CD, but all I can find is the root.disk file, I can't see any of the file structure. That's probably just how it is supposed to be, but I'm new to Linux so I found it strange. method to either change the disk to read/write besides this?sudo umount /mount -o remount,rw /The other option would be to somehow mount the disk image while using a live CD so that I can get to the fstab file and edit it.
I use Deluge as a bittorrent client to download music.However, if--or rather when--other programs like rhythmbox edit the tags in the file (or change the file in anyway) deluge downloads the file againI thought that making the folder which Deluge downloads to a read-only folder would stop this from happening. But I need a way to allow Deluge to still be able to download to this folder.s there a way to do this

I'm a new Ubuntu user and a Python programmer, it's the first time that I use Python in Ubuntu so it's a bit confusing me. If I want to save a Module or something in a specified map, I get 'Errno 13', it says that I don't have permission to edit, do thing in that map. And this is also for importing files with Python. I logged in from Terminal with 'sudo -i' and closed Terminal, but the problem keeps repeating. How do I login as Admin or Root and stay as Admin or Root? I need right to edit/read files as well as root and normal user.
An example: Python file: test.py -> test = open('/a.txt', 'w') test.write('Test - Test - Test') test.close
When I execute this, I get in the Python IDLE the 'Errno 13' problem and below the 'Errno 13' it says that I don't have permission. Who know how to stay logged in as root, even if the user has not logged in or isn't this possible, if it isn't then I just want to get files moving, editing/erasing etc.
When i open any .pps file with OO.org (impress), it starts a slideshow and it doesn't let me edit the file. If i click on "end slideshow", the program exits.i ran it in a terminal and there's no error messages.[EDITED]Well, i found the answer, just renaming it to ".ppt".
I need a way to edit a pdf as ether a .odt or .doc file and I read that I should be able to do that using Kword so i installed kword. However, when I try to open or import a .pdf there not listed at all. When I looked in the file format filter drop down menu I don't see PDF. I look in synaptic for any additional packages I might need and I didn't find anything that helped. I also did find and useful documentation on the koffice website.
Since I updated my 10.04 LTS program from 2.6.32-24 to 2.6.32-25, both of these show up at the dual boot start up menu. Back when I had 8.04 LTS, I was able to edit my menu.lst file to delete past versions. How do I remove past versions from the grub.cfg file at present?

I am splitting a file based on the values read from an input file. The below one is the script.
1)How do I add the header which is present in the original file to the new split files created?(For eg. pharmacyf conatins header as table column names. The new files created (ODS.POS.$pharmacyid.$tablename.$CURRENT_DATE.dat) are without the header).
2) Also the script is creating 0 byte files for the pharmacyids which are not available in the intial file? Can this be avoided?
for pharmacyf in * do tablename=`echo $pharmacyf |cut -f4 -d'.' ` while read pharmacyid do grep -w $pharmacyid $pharmacyf >> $OUT/ODS.POS.$pharmacyid.$tablename.$CURRENT_DATE.dat done< inputfile done
