I have a triple boot system with Ubuntu 11.04, Windows 7 and Windows-XP on it. My disc configuration is something like this... ('cause I think it would be required for you to understand my problem) I have a 250GB hard disk which was originally partitioned with Windows-XP in six partitions C,D,E,F,G and H (All NTFS type) with 'C' drive having Windows-XP on it and 'D' drive having Windows-7 on it.
I installed Ubuntu on the 'H' drive by partitioning it into two halves of approximately 20GB each. One partition is named 'New Volume' as per Windows naming scheme. On the other partition I installed my Ubuntu-11.04 OS. As per my plan I would be using this 'New Volume' for all my Ubuntu related data and software only. I want to install 'Ant' build tool for Java to be usable on my Ubuntu. For this, as described on the Apache Ant user manual I downloaded the 'apache-ant-1.8.2-bin.tar.gz' and extracted it. All this I did in the 'New Volume' drive.
Now as per the 'Ant' manual I needed to change a file's ('/media/New Volume/ubuntu files/software files/apache-ant-1.8.2/bin/ant') permission to executable, which is currently set to '-rw-------' and I want it to be '-rwx------'. I've tried various things such as 'chmod/sudo' and also tried changing the permission with the 'root' user, but so far I've not been able to change the permissions for this file. However, if I copy the 'apache-ant-1.8.2' folder to '/home' directory then I've been able to change the permission for the concerned file.
I was always confused about the way it says that the execute permission for a directory means "able to list it". I just don't get it.Does no exec permission mean "still able to read files from in the directory, but not able to find out what files it contains" or what?
I'm running WoW through wine. In order to install addons I need to give all the files in the program permission to execute as a program. the problem is I can't (dont know how) just right click the folder and give everything inside permission i have to open each one and give them all permission, which can quickly turn into hundreds depending on the addon. how to give permission to execute as a program to all the files in a folder at once it would save me a lot of clicking and time.
How can I give execute permission to chmod command from run level 3.Because in GUI mode we have the execute option in the properties of file. E.g. I gave following command chmod -x chomod After that I want to give the execute permission (x) to chmod command again but how from command prompt?
On an Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) machine, I burned a CD from the command prompt using: cdrecord -v speed=16 dev=0,1,0 /FPS.iso.The CD now contains an executable and some files. I tested the CD by loading it onto another machine (Red Hat 5.3) and when I try to run the program I get the following message:bash: ./FPS1_1: Permission denied.I can open other files like text documents (the executable also comes with shared libraries).I realized I had burned the CD as root so I burned another one as another user but I still have the same problem.
I have a program(that is written by me) which need super user permission to execute it. But I need to let the normal users to execute it without using 'sudo ./executable' and just './executable'. how i can set the program to execute by the normal users without using 'sudo' or password prompting.
Suppose I have a binary program with only execute permission enabled for the current user. How (in general) would I be able to obtain a core dump of the file? I think I have read it somewhere but I want to know if there are more ways of doing it.
I am shocked that I still don't understand "Execute" permission in linux. There are three permission - read, write, and execute. I understand that read and write literally, but what does execute do exactly? Let's say I have example.php with execute permission. What can I do with example.php?
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2850 running Ubuntu 10.04 Server with SSH and Samba. My problem is that I am unable to execute my adduser.sh script which reads from a text file and adds users to the box and Samba. I have ran chmod a+x to make it executable and placed it in /usr/local/bin.
When I run sudo adduser.sh I get "sudo: unable to execute /usr/local/bin/adduser.sh: No such file or directory".
When I run adduser.sh I get "-bash: /usr/local/bin/adduser.sh: /bin/bash^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory " I have been using Kubuntu as my home workstation for some time now but I have managed Windows servers but since I was given the freedom to setup this server I chose Linux.
I am dual booting XP and Kubuntu 10.10 from separate hard drives and I can't execute .exe files from my XP drive. I also have an internal data drive that I can execute .exe files from fine. When I try to go into the properties for the file to mark it executable I am unable to do so. I have ran "sudo nautilus" to mark the files executable and that doesn't work either. I even changed /dev/sdb1 to be owned by myself instead of root, and that doesn't help. When I used "sudo nautilus" I also got error messages in my terminal when I tried to do anything (which I copied and attached to this post).
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 used to execute the command setrcs /data/dev/projects in a solaris machine. And all the files in the given path were visible from the current directory (whichever directory i am in). So that i need not copy necessary files required for compilation from the path to the current directory.
Ex: Suppose I am writing a C code x.c in the directory /root/test/. I do #include <bdm.c> in the file x.c. While executing I need not have the bdm.c in the current directory. Because I have executed the command setrcs /data/dev/projects. The compiler automatically looks for the bdm.c file in the path /data/dev/projects. But i am not able to execute the command setrcs in linux. Is there any similar command with similar functions or if there is any different command in Linux which serves my purpose.
My question is I trying to install php5 and add mcrypt,, but it is unable to run "aclocal" command. It show this message.
I have check with the path of /etc/profile, I'm sure that I have added the path as below. Beside that, before "aclocal" command I able to run another command which is "phpize". It is able to run successfully, after I added the path as below...
I am trying to move our current system running on Mason, Apache 1.34 and Mod_perl1.0 to Apache2&mod_perl2.0. I am currently unable to execute the mason files, I tried a test.pl file which is executing. I have referred to the multiple forums, http://www.masonhq.com/?FAQ:Components & http://perl.apache.org. But so far the Mason files are displaying as text but not executing the embedded html. Kindly let me know if anyone had a similar issue and how did you go about resolving the same.
I installed wine and I installed one of my file ccnaexploration.exe using wine. After that I ran it from applications>wine>programs>exploration4.html. It opened with the browser google-chrome and I launched the "Launch course". It didn't work after that. I tried with firefox also. It didn't work with firefox also. I installed other .exe file using wine. That other .exe file is working. I only have problem with exploration4.html. I have posted the .html image also. you can check it out.
I am trying to execute a 4GE file using command something like this "/usr/bin/ksh path of the file with some arguments " ex: /usr/bin/ksh /home/abc.4ge S "./xyz" . I am able to execute the 4GE without this "/usr/bin/ksh" specifying in the command which basically runs in ksh shell itself. But when i try to run it exclusively using the path of the shell it gives me an error something like this "/usr/bin/ksh: /home/abc.4ge: cannot execute". I did check the permissions and all the file has execute permission.
