how to give full set of permisions to an user in linux to access a folder?
I Have Configure Samba server in Centos, I need give permission like for some user(5User) can able to read and write the particular folder, and again i need give some another user(6user) can only read permission for same folder.
I want to give a mounted folder /mnt/folder access so that 'root and the group test have read write access' and all other users have read access I understand most of the chmod command, the users groups world etc but where in the 'command' do you specify which 'group' or 'user' you are giving the read / write access to? in all the tutorials i've seen no where do you specify the actual group or user.
I'm developing an application in which one user must run java software that I'm compiling as another user. I wanted to give user A permission to see the bin direcory of my workspace, which is in the home directory of user B. I was wondering how can this be done? I gave the bin direcotry full read/execute premissions, but since it's in my home directory user A can't navigate to it.
I know there are a few ways I could get around the problem but they arn't very elegant. I was wondering if there is a simple method for giving a user access to a specific directory without giving access to all the parent directories. I tried symbolic link but user A still can't access it, and a hard link to a directory isn't allowed in Linux. I don't feel like making a hard link to every single file in the bin directory, and I'm not sure that would work anyways, since every recompile overwrites them.
I've got folder /srv/www/site1 that's owned by www-data:www-data (Apache). Now I need to give FTPuser1:ftpusers r/w access to the same folder, but all my attempts are gone bad. How should I exactly do it?
i'm trying to make a folder on fat32 partition named NEW by typing in console mkdir NEW, then i open PCMan file manager then go to that folder at first the folder name was NEW but after i doubleclick it and go back the folder name was changed to 'new'then i tried to rename it to NEW but it says file exist then i tried to rename it to 'not new' (this time inside PCMan) and it work then i rename it again to NEW, go into that folder and go back again... the folder name changed to 'new' again.anyone know why this happen?? this doesn't happen if i make the folder name more than one word such as 'NEW NEW'
I've got a USB Epson Perfection1200 (usb-id: 04b8:0104) connected to my Fedora 13 x86_64 system. The scanner works fine for me, the console user. If someone logs in to the system via "ssh -X ..." and starts "xsane", xsane reports that no scanner is available.
Googling turns up countless recommendations, mostly identical, which pretty much say:
1. find usb device (lsusb) 2. find bus and dev IDs 3. chmod 666 /dev/bus/usb/BUSID/DEVID
this is a best a miserable hack. I would like to know how to adapt the permissions that hald uses when a usb device is connected. Does someone understand this and can explain it?
First, I am new to linux I just finished installing Fedora 14 on a different PC which I will be using solely to explore Linux. However the first annoying problem I encountered was that I can't do a lot of things without Linux asking me for the root password. This has become really annoying, I want to stop fedora from asking for root authentication every time I want to explore something here and there.
Among the work-arounds that I've tried and didn't quite work for me are: 1. login as root on the kdm - I can login as root but because I am also encouraging my sister to explore fedora 14 she needs the same access as root too. We have our own preferences so we both need individual accounts that have same access level as root.
2. change userid to 0 (same as root) and modify groups to be exactly the same as root's groups - very bad solution, what it did was make my user a sort of "alias" for the root. It basically uses the same /root/ folder, same settings and all that stuff. Again, my sister and I need separate accounts for a more personal feel.
3. use terminal and go sudo, sudoers, etc - very bad idea, I want to explore using the kde gui. And again I want to eliminate the inconvenience of having to type things over and over again. I'd rather type the password over and over again than having to use terminal and sudo everything.
4. beesu, gksu - anyone knows how to make linux automatically wrap everything with beesu/gksu?
since we are just exploring, we are willing to trade the systems, integrity and security for the convenience of having freedom to explore everything in it. I don't care, it could blow up the pc for all I care (it's old and for experiment anyway).
This exploring linux of ours is a make or break for us to using linux. If there is no solution to this problem, we'll probably scrap the whole "migrate to linux" idea.
I thinking of making Linux recognize our user id the same way it recognizes uid 0 but I have no idea how to do this.
I have a good question. I have a friend that lives in an area where he cannot receive DSL or Cable internet. He has a phone line, and physically able to get DSL, but the company won't give him service. He has Verizon wireless, but the reception is bad and his service gets dropped too much.
I however, have DSL 3.0Mbps and want to know how I could get him a DSL modem to dial up to my server at my house and receive internet. I know that I would probably need two phone lines to do this, but apart from that.
Is it possible to give user only FTP access / browsing rights for certain directory within /srv/www/htdocs and prevent same user to browse all other directories, even user's /home directory on that server?
I wanted to create an user but don't allow it to see the other user's home folder so I made chmod 0750 /home/folder and it worked fine so I went ahead and decided to completely forbid access to the root folder and I had the "great" idea to make chmod 0750 /, and now I'm having problems with wine and other applications, in example I used to have a folder in this address 184.108.40.206/mmgr but now it's giving me errors and if I try to run some applications I got error "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal"
I have a file server on my network. It is accessed mainly by linux machines throught NFS, but sometimes I need to access it from windows, and I managed to get Samba up and running with only one share with no password, which is what I want.My users have their "private" folders which are just chmodded 700, and under NFS it works fine, but on samba I get, of course, access denied.How can I configure samba so that it asks a password to access those directory? They can become separate shares, and have their own username and passwords (not the ones in /etc/passwd in the server), I don't care.
I have a Lucid Ubuntu installed on my home PC with two user accounts, AmHero and simple. I would like to have all internet access disabled when my kids login with the 'simple' userid. And yes, internet should work when I login using AmHero. I tried this:
..but this does not work and gives some errors on the terminal.
I can paste the errors, though I am not sure this will even work as I found this in an old post.
