Ubuntu :: Unable To Set Execute Permission?

Jun 18, 2011

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.

General :: Directory Execute Permission

Apr 24, 2010

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?

General :: Permission Denied When Trying To Execute Binary Burned To A CD-R

Mar 23, 2010

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.

Server :: Saving A File Removes The Group Execute Permission?

May 23, 2011

Here are some example files that are shared through samba:

-rwxrwx--- user1 group1 file1.txt
-rwxrwx--- user1 group1 file2.txt

When user2 (who is also a member of group1) edits file2.txt the permissions change:

-rwxrwx--- user1 group1 file1.txt
-rwxrw---- user2 group1 file2.txt

user1 then has issues opening the file. This also goes for new files that are created (they are missing the group execute permission).

I have set the option "create mask = 0770" in my smb.conf. Without this set, permissions default to something like -rwxr--r--

Ubuntu Servers :: Unable To Execute .sh Script

May 13, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Execute From Windows Partition

Dec 12, 2010

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).

General :: Unable To Execute The Setrcs

Jan 7, 2010

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.

Apr 7, 2010

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.
