Fedora :: Using SSH - Could Not Chdir To Home Directory /home/adahaj: Permission Denied

Jul 21, 2009

I have a strange problem when I do SSH to a FEDORA9 based Linux Server.


When I login using "adah" username in TELNET I am automatically directed to my home directory at location "/media/disk-1/home/adah". But when I use SSH to login using the same username I get the following message Code: Could not chdir to home directory /home/adahaj: Permission denied

General :: 'Could Not Chdir To Home Directory /home/[user]: Permission Denied'

Jan 6, 2010

I have a secondary disk which holds a /home directory structure from a previous install of Linux. I installed a new version on a new primary drive and mounted this secondary drive as the new /home. Problem is, even though the users are the same names and I can access the home directories for the users, I cannot login directly to their home directories, as I get the following error: -


login as: [me]
[me]@[machine]'s password:
Last login: Wed Jan 6 18:34:33 2010 from [machine]
Could not chdir to home directory /home/[me]: Permission denied
[[me]@[machine] /]$

Now, since the usernames are correct and the users are in the passwd file with the correct home directory paths, could it be user ID's that are different or something else? It's not as though I cannot access the home directories for the users, simply that I cannot log directly into them from a login prompt.

Ubuntu :: Connecting To Home Server Via SSH - Permission Denied

Sep 22, 2010

Is it possible to SSH to a remote computer from within an SSH session? I'm connecting to my home server via SSH, and trying to connect out to my VPS. I know the key.ppk file works, as I can use it to connect directly from my PC. The output I'm getting is shown below:

(tried various ways of doing this)

Ubuntu :: Lost Permission To Home Directory

Jul 14, 2010

I just recently installed a netbook version of lucid. Since it didn't support wifi, I did a wget of the 2.6.35 kernel and since then the netbook has been working great WITH wifi. It has been functioning great so far.Yesterday I went to add a user account for my girlfriend and that's when things went haywire.There were a number of error messages when I tried to log into both her account and mine after creating it:

First error: Could not update ICEauthority file /home/bob/.ICEauthority
Second error: There is a problem with the configuration server. (/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)
Third error: Nautilus could not create the following required folders: /home/bob/Destop, /home/bob/.nautilus

I have inspected the /home drive and made sure I have permissions for my /home/bob dir, but it doesn't seem to allow me to cd bob. The current permissions for user is drw-rw-r-- and it is owned by bob.

General :: Testing Home Directory Scripts By Setting $HOME To The Location Of The Test Directory

Apr 20, 2010

I have an interdependent collection of scripts in my ~/bin directory as well as a developed ~/.vim directory and some other libraries and such in other subdirectories. I've been versioning all of this using git, and have realized that it would be potentially very easy and useful to do development and testing of new and existing scripts, vim plugins, etc. using a cloned repo, and then pull the working code into my actual home directory with a merge.

The easiest way to do this would seem to be to just change & export $HOME, eg

cd ~/testing; git clone ~ home
export HOME=~/testing/home
cd ~
screen -S testing-home
# start vim, write/revise plugins, edit scripts, etc.
# test revisions

However since I've never tried this before I'm concerned that some programs, environment variables, etc., may end up using my actual home directory instead of the exported one. Is this a viable strategy? Are there just a few outliers that I should be careful about?

Ubuntu :: Home Folder Icons Don't Update When Change The Home Directory

Sep 22, 2010

I have a dual-boot macbook with an OS X partition and an ubuntu partition. When I first installed ubuntu, I changed my home folder to my OS X home directory to synchronize all my files from both. My home directory is now /media/sda2/Users/username/. In a regular home folder, the icons for Documents, Music, Pictures, Movies, etc. are different (not just with emblems, but actually different icons). But when I changed my home folder, these subfolders' icons stayed the same as regular folder icons and I can't figure out a way to change that default setting. I know how to change the icons for each folder manually, but these changes don't appear everywhere (i.e. nautilus, places, etc). Furthermore, every time I change my icon theme, I would have to manually reassign icons for these folders. Is there a way to globally change the folder icons for these folders?

General ::anything Special About Home Directory Before Users' Home Directories Are Stored There

Jun 19, 2010

Is there anything special about a home directory before users' home directories are stored there, or is just as typical as any other "empty" folder?Let me just cut to the chase, but please no ear ringing about the folly of messing around as root, particularly with directories at root level. I know it's considered stupidity, but I deleted my home directory.

Is there an easy way to restore a working home directory? I tried copying /etc/skel under root, but I'm not sure what a home directory should look like once it has been restored. Besides . & .., there were .screenrc & .xsession in my home directory when I copied /etc/skel. Are these files suppose to be in "/home" or "/home/~" or both?

Ubuntu Servers :: Set Home Directory Path Different From LDAP's Home?

May 24, 2011

I need to specify a different path to home directories on a particular server than what LDAP contains for the users, besides using a symlink. E.g. "/Users/jdoe" vs "/home/jdoe" I don't want to change the actual LDAP attributes, just want a particular server to point them in the right direction (Ubuntu 10.04).

I'm assuming it's something I could probably set in pam configurations?

Fedora :: Cannot Enter Home Directory Using /

Jul 29, 2009

I use ext4 for the lvm2 home partition on Fedora 11. Yesterday, I must shrink my home partition and the operation crashed. Then a new ext4 partition becomes a backup "cp -R /mnt/backup/* /home" + chown + chgrp and boot Fedora again.

The login failed and the message of Fedora is "Cannot enter home directory. Using /."

What is the problem?

Fedora :: Set My .bash Home Directory?

Fedora :: F14: Cannot Enter Home Directory Using /

Nov 24, 2010

I've installed F14 to replace another distribution on my PC. I chose to use KDE. I used to have a separate partition for my user home to be mounted as /home. During the installation I instructed the installer to do so (without formatting of course). At the first boot I created a use with the very same name as I used to have. I got the warning about the home being already there and I said "yes, convert that ownership and selinux stuff so I can use that very directory as my home". At the graphical login I get a dialog saying I cannot enter my home and that it will use / instead. Of course the login process fails. If I switch to the character console (CTRL-ALT-F2) and do a login I actually get the very same error. But, if I hit "cd" (change directory to $HOME), then I get in the proper directory.

Update 1. I guessed it was a SELinux problem. And I manually disabled it into /etc/selinux/config. Now I'd like to fix this issue, because I'd like to have SELinux working.

Fedora :: Allow CGI Execution From Home Directory On 15

Aug 27, 2011

I have been trying to get my development box up and running and I decided to do some CGI work in Perl and I am getting a 500 error on Apache 2. I have checked all the perl settings and the script runs fine on the CLI. I am simply passing a textfield from a HTML form to Perl. I was using the standard CGI.pm calls but I modified the script just to use print statements to make the output page. The script has one textfield in it, as it was just supposed to test the CGI.

I have the UserDir directive active for my user and I did some modifications to allow CGI execution from my home directory /public_html/cgi-bin/. the script will not run from the main /var/www/cgi-bin directory either,that also returns a 500 error. the permissions are 755 on both copies of the script in the cgi-bin directories.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Missing Home Directory?

Mar 16, 2010

Supposedly, the person who used to manage the server set up an admin account before they left, but when I try to log in to it I get the error:Your home directory is listed as:'/home/username'but it does not appear to exist. Do you want to log in with the / (root) directory as your home directory?It is unlikely anything will work unless you use a failsafe session. I've browsed a couple other topics with similar problems and tried some of what was suggested, but I haven't gotten anywhere.

Fedora :: Moved Home Directory And Cannot Login

Oct 26, 2009

I've made a LAMP install and used it as a test server connected to my Mac. Good. I managed to get Dreamweaver to work with the server and had access to the home folder from my Mac. The bad part is when I was setting up the permissions for my Mac to connect, I gave it too many rights and set /etc/exports with "no_root_squash" option. This allowed me to change permissions in my home folder from the Mac! That was really cool. The trouble started when I tried to get too clever about managing my F11 test server.

The permission change on the F11 box from the Mac created a new user 501. All the home files had this new user, 501, and a new group 501. I manually edited the /etc/passwd file giving this new PID a meaningful name, rXtian, and set its group to Xtian from the original user. Just to make myself feel really clever, I read in my "F11 Bible" that a "portable desktop" would make it easier to manage log in from different machines. I created a new home directory and CP'n the content from:

/home/xtiansimonsibm/Xtian (with -rw-r--r-- rXtian Xtian)

What I mean to say is I deleted the old /home/Xtian directory for reasons I do not know. Thats when all the trouble started. I can't login to either user, rXtian or Xtian. I can only get on as root. I tried to start over by creating a third user with ADDUSER including the base set of user files. I renamed home/xtiansimonsibm/rXtian. I can't log in to either. I used PASSWD command changing Xtian and rXtian's loginpass, but neither password has taken. I still have the test server working, but I can't login to the home folder anymore. What can I do? Any tutorial or checklist for repairinig the user permissions, passwords?

Fedora :: Synchronize Home Directory With USB Sticks?

Nov 17, 2009

I used to use Unison to synchronize files between various Unix/Linux computers. I've an USB stick onto which i put files I've to keep with me (when I work outside home). When I get back home I'll like to synchronize with my laptop running Fedora 11. If the file is on the usb stick no problem, it gets copied onto my home directory and everything is fine.

But if the file has to go onto the stick, Unison complains it can't set the file's permission (of course, on a Vfat file system) and refuse to copy it. Question : Do you know a way to avoid setting irrelevant permissions on a file with Unison or an other utility of this kind ?

Fedora :: Installing Fonts In Home Directory On F12?

Jan 17, 2010

but something a lot of folks may not be aware of -- you don't have to go messing around over in /usr/share/fonts anymore if you've got a single-user type machine and just want some fonts for your personal desktop.Since I wipe most partitions when I upgrade (/home is on a separate one) this makes the fonts stay with my login. This is GNOME specific, I do believe KDE has a control panel to install fonts.

Obtain the TTF font(s) youd like to use; Ill use the custom Monaco Linux font as an example.

Then I get the message 'you don't appear to have a window manager installed' I reinstalled compiz, but it gives me a misty screen, with the cube desktop. How do I set compiz to a default setting? Plain and simple? Where is the config file? This may have started when I clicked a box 'enable indirect rendering' just to see what happened. I have an nvidia 9200 card on an Asus laptop.Failing that, how do I reinstall Fed 12 without wiping out my home directory?
