Debian Multimedia :: Require Users To Be In A Group For HAL Automount?
Nov 3, 2010
I'm using squeeze. hal allows any user (at least, ones logged into the console) the ability to automount any removable drive that is plugged in. I want to restrict the ability to automount to users who are in the group that owns the device node for the drive (some distributions use the "plugdev" group for this.) I know I can turn off automount individually in each desktop, but seeing as hal is the thing that runs as root and is actually doing the mounting, it seems to make the most sense to change the setting in hal.
i want secondary users can able to change the files permissions of primary group?user MAC is having www as a primary and httpd as secondary group. But he want to change the file permissions (chmod) httpd group files. Is it possible or not? I think its not possible. If it`s possible then let me know how?
I have a number of users, categorised into various groups. I would like one of those groups ("developers") to be in the wheel group as well. I don't want to just copy the people from the developers group into wheel, because then when that group changes I'll have to change it in two places. Is there a way to specify that anyone in developers is in wheel, and have that be dynamic?
On xfce I really liked orage, however on fluxbox I don't want to install all its dependencies (xfce4-gui, xfce4panel, +++) for just a calendar. So, I'm looking for a light calendar app that will allow me to store appointments. Ideally it would integrate nicely with fluxbox, so either launchable by clicking on the clock, or else mapped transparently onto the desktop just like conky. If it could work with conky that would be pretty ideal as well, and it must have the ability to send notifications (either by sound or screen) about upcoming appointments, reminders, etc.
I've seen xcalendar mentioned on these forums, but it doesn't seem to be in the repos anymore (squeeze). Also rainlender, though I don't like that it's not in the repos and has pro/free versions. Sunbird is an option, but kind of large and clunky for what I'll be using it for. Right now I'm thinking gdeskcal is my best bet, but I'm hoping others will have better ideas. If gdeskcal fails to impress, I may have no choice but to go with sunbird (aka iceowl) and perhaps use conky to display the calendar on the desktop, and make it launchable from clicking the clock on fluxbox. My mail application is claws, which has some limited vlcalendar functionality.
how to map all domain users form group Domain Users to local group users (and maybe some more)? Im using Ubuntu 10.04 x32. Its connected to my domain using Samba and Winbind, I can login using my domain credentials, automatically map user folder form DFS server, but I think that domain users have too much priviledges in the system and want to restrict them as much as possible
When I have different people log into our ftp and browse to the same folder, some people see the files inside, some don't. all the user accounts are in the same group, which has permission to this folder. but the one user who can see the files is the owner. how can i fix it so everyone in that group who's the owner of the folder can see the files?
I recently started using the Debian operating system, and I became aware that many people associated with MIT are working on this project. Why does this webpage require closed-source software to view the lectures? Specifically I am having trouble with http://mitworld.mit.edu/video/861
I see that the site requests access to google-analytics and/or hitbox is that necessary to view the information? And can I watch with a non-Adobe flash player?
In other Linux distros I've used, new users are assigned to their own group (i.e. user 'joe', group 'joe') by default. To my surprise, when I create new users with my openSUSE 11.4, they are all assigned to the 'users' shared group by default.To test this, I created a new user called 'friends'. From my terminal, I can see how the new user files look like:
joe@linux:~> ls -l /home/friends/ total 40 drwxr-xr-x 2 friends users 4096 Sep 3 11:37 bin
I'm running Debian 8.1 Jessie on a Dell Latitude D400 using the GNOME Flashback DE. I cannot for the life of me figure out why it doesn't automout my USB drives and CD/DVDs.The regular GNOME and GNOME Classic will automount no problem but Flashback will not. It shows up in Nautilus but I have to mount it manually through Nautilus. I checked in dconf Editor under org/gnome/desktop/media-handling and automount IS checked. So I can't figure out why its not automounting.
Is there a way to fix that so Flashback will automount my CD/DVDs and USB drives or is it just a bug in Flashback that I gotta wait to get fixed?I've already searched the forum and Google to no avail but its possible I didn't use the right searh terms in Google.
I have a 2 Computers: Computer A has a RAID array in it, and everything works perfectly fine. When Computer A powers on, the RAID array is automatically mounted, mdadm takes care of all of the things it's supposed to, and an icon for the RAID array is automatically placed on the desktop. Everything Just Works (TM). Computer B is configured similarly to Computer A. They have identical configuration files (at least, all the ones I've checked are identical), and when Computer B powers on, the RAID array is automatically mounted, mdadm takes care of all of the things it's supposed to, BUT, NO icon for the RAID array is automatically placed on the desktop. How do I change that?
They have identical /etc/fstab's (the lines in bold are the ones that matter): Computer A mediaserver:/home/mediaserver/Desktop# cat /etc/fstab .....
Computer B mediaserver:/home/mediaserver# cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information .....
They have identical /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf's Computer A mediaserver:/home/mediaserver/Desktop# cat /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf DEVICE partitions CREATE owner=root group=disk mode=0660 auto=yes HOMEHOST <system> MAILADDR root ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid5 num-devices=4 metadata=0.90 UUID=82bfcecf:5cd4d557:2f1fbd23:68e2797c
The outputs of mount are also very similar: Computer A mediaserver:/home/mediaserver/Desktop# mount /dev/hda1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro) tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755) proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) procbususb on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw) udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755) tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev) devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620) /dev/md0 on /mnt/arrayCOMP_A type xfs (rw)
Computer B mediaserver@mediaserver:~$ mount /dev/hdc1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro) tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755) proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) procbususb on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw) udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755) tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev) devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620) /dev/md0 on /mnt/arrayCOMP_B type xfs (rw) mediaserver@mediaserver:~$
So how do I get an icon for the device /dev/md0 to automagically appear on the desktop every time the device is mounted (which occurs every time the computer boots up)?
What is the group 'users' (gid 100) for? It's tempting to use it as a general group for accounts that log in but would that cause a security risk? I've done a search for files owned by this group and there don't appear to be any. Googling the words gives very non-specific results!
I need to assign permissions for ftp users. For that I need to create groups with different permissions like upload, download, rename, delete, rename and delete. And the users added to the group need to have that group permissions by default.
I've been asked by my professor to add the list of users to a linux server (not sure of the OS type I think he said debian) but anyway. He gave me this script to add users.
Code: #!/bin/bash # Script to add a user to Linux system if [ $(id -u) -eq 0 ]; then read -p "Enter username : " username read -s -p "Enter password : " password egrep "^$username" /etc/passwd >/dev/null if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then echo "$username exists!" exit 1 else pass=$(perl -e 'print crypt($ARGV, "password")' $password) useradd -m -p $pass $username [ $? -eq 0 ] && echo "User has been added to system!" || echo "Failed to add a user!" fi else echo "Only root may add a user to the system" exit 2 fi
I need to see if I can get this script to read a file that list the usernames and their passwords using the pipe command (or some similar command) so I can just do it in one batch. I've done some searching but there are so many vairiations of the code that I've confused myself. Also, I'm not too familiar with linux, it's been a few years since I've used it but in the prior script, I need to add the users to an existing group named "forensics". Which line would I change/add in order to do this?
I want to implement quota per group users like this: Assume i have a Student group in my system, that student1 and student2 and student3 are three users in this group. i want to set quota 100GB per each user in this group, 100GB for student1, 100GB for student2 and .... The problem is when i set quota per group i cant say each user in that group have 100GB quota limit, also when i set quota per user, i should set one by one for each user.I want to know, is there anyway for set quota for all users in specific group?
I'm using Slackware with NFS share and I've been wondering why I had problems with access to some folders and I finally figured out that NFS limits group membership only to 16. Is there a simple way to circumvent this in Slackware?
I want to apply the same settings of Gnome among a group of users. I configured a "master"-user and exported his Gnome settings using
Code: gconftool-2 --dump > gnome_settings.xml For the other users, where the settings from the "master"-user shall apply, I did Code: gconftool-2 --load gnome_settings.xml
While most of the settings were set properly, I am missing the links for Firefox and OpenOffice in the panel which I had configured. How I can copy the Gnome settings from one user to another, including links to Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panel?
I have server 9.04 and joined thru winbind to Windows Domain and subversion installed.Windows AD users can use their own credentials to join and everything is working fine.However the group svn which is used to access the repos in /etc/groups has some users.However I would like to add the domain users group to the svn group but the domain users contains Space. And /etc/groups does not happend to read the space any ideas on how to add "domain users" to the svn group in /etc/groups
I want to add some users to multiple groups. syntax of the file to pass to ldapadd? or would I use lapmodify? Does one add/modify a user record to specify the groups that user is a member of? Or does one add/modify each group record to specify which users are members?
i added users to the group om PDC after it i shared folder on linux server and given permission for users from this group, the folder is showed correct. After it i removed users from group, but the folder is accessible. Where is mistake?
[global] workgroup = STSCOMPANY password server = *
i just want to prevent from now on from all users maybe even root from adding other users to groups like wheel for example. I also want to know how can I prevent from all users to create new groups or add users to new one.real
This is the scenario: Active Directory Server = 192.168.0.1 Squid/Dansguardian Proxy Server w/NTLM Auth = 192.168.0.10 The Linux box has been integrated with AD and works fine. Users can authenticate automatically when login the AD or when they access the web through Basic authentication. That part is just fine.
But, when I add a new user, or change a users' primary group, I have to change the 'filtergroups' file in Dansguardian. I tried to make auto this process using the USERMAP and USERMAP2 scripts in [URL].. at the "Extras and Add Ons" section, but both scripts doesn't run properly in Ubuntu if they are not changed. I tried, following the instructions, but got a lot of syntax errors. So, I wrote a very simple script using 'net rpc' to retrieve all users according to the AD Security and Domain Groups. I created an output folder in dansguardian to dump the rpc outputs into files. And read the files to apply filtering groups.
In my ongoing hunt for a Samba GUI that is feature packed, well supported, easy to use, yet doesn't suck, I found myself tinkering with eBox. I have it installed and fired up but I'm a little confused. I can add a Samba share - okay great. But I sorta need to add users. Where on earth can I add users? The users and group section of eBox doesn't appear to be related to what I need, and I also cannot get into the access control section of the very share I just created.
