Fedora :: Way To 'apply Permissions To Enclosed Files' Recursively Through Nautilus Context Menu?
Jun 14, 2011
I have a partition that I mount as /data on all of my distros of my multi-boot machine. I am having a bear of a time figuring the right way to address permissions/groups so that any distro can use it (or any removable drive).I tried (in linuxmint) making a group '/data' and assigning the users on my machine to that group, then changing the permissions/groups of the files and folders in that mount as belonging to the /data group, then booted to fedora 15, made the /data group, added the users to that group, I'm not sure that this way will work (it doesn't seem to) or if it's the best way to proceed. some of the things I don't get are:what is the '1000' user and group?is the user/group info on (in or somehow attached) the mount itself?does this seem like a good way to do this?is there on way to 'apply permissions to enclosed files' recursively through the nautilus context menu?

In Windows Explorer, if a file is focused, press Menu Key on keyboard, context menu will show on top of the file. But in Nautilus, the same action shows context menu where the mouse cursor is. That's a bit annoying. Is there anyway to make it work like Windows?
Nautilus as root is on the left; nautilus as Ubunterooster (normal user) on the right Screen-shot# 1, Permissions before I change them. #2, after I change and hit "apply to enclosed files" before clicking the button labeled "close".
#3, The containing folder has all folders as belonging to root even though I told it to "apply to enclosed files".
#4, Obviously, I don't want to change permissions on every single file individually. I don't know how to change permissions to allow the folders and files to be able to be viewed by me (as a normal user) or by my SAMBA connected father.
I've been using Ubuntu for quite some time now and my context menu has become cluttered with a lot of applications that I don't use or menu items that I have never used - and most likely won't use.
So I want to remove them, or at least disable them.
So, after searching Google (irrelevant or old results) so then I tried Google with [URL] but nobody has had their problem solved.
Edit: I've looked through GConf-Editor, found nothing, and have looked through the directories .Cache/.Config/.Local/.Nautilus in my home diretory and nothing came up of relevance in the first three and the .Nautilus directory was empty.
I uninstalled xmms player quite a long time ago. I think when I had hardy heron. Currently I'm on 10.04. When I right click a .mp3 file I still have the option to play with xmms player showing up. Even if I choose an "other application" the xmms player option remains stickied to the top.Does anyone know how I can remove this entry? I did a lot of searching but couldn't find a solution.
Upon a fresh installation of Ubuntu Natty, I have noticed only a couple of my nautilus-actions are actually showing up in the context menu. On further review, I noticed Nautilus-actions has changed a lot, and I cannot seem to figure out why most of my actions are not showing up. It seems no matter what I change, they will not show up. Some of the ones I cannot seem to get up are 'Wipe' commands and several of my homemade ones that worked flawlessly in past Ubuntu versions, such as Chown, Make Executable, Renamer, among others. Oddly, two of them work just fine, Search Here and Open Root Nautilus. I am not sure why these work, while the others do not, other than they are not used by selecting item(s)/folders. Also, I noticed there is a change with the parameters, in which now all of them use %F instead of %M. Does anybody know why that is, and/or does it really matter. FYI, I am using the classic version, not Unity as my desktop.
I want to add my daughter as a user and give her full permissions to all the same folders and files that I use. I have given her permission to folders and their sub folders however she doesn't have rwx on the individual files within the folders. What is the command line to set this up?
Also with the command;
Code: chown -R root:root files
what is the -R for and when do I need or not need it?
There's any way to add the "Extract to <folder>" to context menu in Nautilus and/or Gnome Commander where <folder> is de name of the archive that I want to extract?Other question: how can I associate .001 extensions to Peazip with the same "Extract to <folder>" right-clicking menu?
I like to create files using the GUI context menu. I right click on windows and one of the options in the menu is "new" and then I have many options such as Word 2007 file etc. I create a lot of files and so this method is more convenient by far for me than opening the application, saving and then navigating to where I want the file to go. Because when I want to create the file, I will probably be in the directory in which I want to create the file, the process takes only a few gestures to complete which is not the case if I have to go through the file system in the "save as" window. Is it possible to have this functionality in Ubuntu?
So I made two shell scripts under /usr/bin/ (would've preferred under ~/bin, but I couldn't get it to add that folder to the path, even when appending it to ~/.bash_profile), named 'Wine' and 'Wine64', each containing something like this:
So basically it's a script to automate the switching between wine architectures and to set the proper prefix path. While this works fine when launching an application from a terminal, say:
Code: Select all$ Wine64 some-windows64-app.exe
I can't get it to work when right clicking the said executable, and opening it with Wine64 (which I previously added it as a choice in the context menu) So is there something I'm doing wrong, or is this not possible at all? In the latter case, is there any way to achieve this through other means?
I'm doing it this way as I'm installing this system for a relative that isn't that knowledgeable with Linux (so I would like to avoid instructing them how to launch commands in a terminal), but would still like to offer him a Windows compatibility layer for the odd Windows-only app that he might need.
I have special permission from the management to stimulate my colleagues to learn Linux - er, Fedora. So I'm dual booting a few machines for them to toy around with. However, all of the popular things of course have to work easily, otherwise there's no convincing them..Almost everything has been arranged, except for an easy way to bulk-print pictures onto A4. I have probably missed it but google doesn't help, this forum doesn't give me too much that I can find.
I did find gpp (Gnome Photo Print) but that is still too complicated. I need to be able to either get it directly from the nautilus context menu, or set the gui so that this app is automatically used when viewing images in a memory card. And then it has to be easy to print.
I'm a Fedora user, and recently I switched from KDE to Gnome. Since then I'm experiencing a nerve-wracking problem when I use the right-click. Almost every time when I right-click the result is the automatic selection of the option in the context menu which is at the same level as the cursor. This happens more than 50% of the cases. Is that normal in Gnome or am I the only one that experiences this kind of problem?
I have a very large and deep directory. I would like to make all of it read only. The problem is I guess I have to distinguish between files (which will get a=r) and directories (which will get a=rx).How can I do that?
I am new in Linux and I need to extract alot of zipped files (different format (e.g tar.gz, tar.gz2)) which are in subdirs and I do not want to go to each subdir and extract each file because it will take alot of time. Is there away to extract all files that are existing in dirs and subdir with "for loop" or is there a script that can do the job automatically.
I have a system where the permissions of many files are messed up. I have another system that has the same files, if I put that hard drive in, without simply overwriting the files, is there a way where I can recursively set the permissions of each file to that of this other directory?
I did a clean install from Ubuntu 09.04 to 10.04 and restored my files from tar. Everything worked fine until I tried my weekly rsync backup. The permissions seemed to be causing problems, so I recursively changed all the permissions in my home directory:
Code: ~/Documents$ sudo chmod -R 644 /home/wolf/ [sudo] password for wolf: chmod: cannot access '/home/wolf/.gvfs': Permission denied So now all the directories and files have read permission for everyone:
Code: ~/Documents$ ls -A ls: cannot open directory .: Permission denied ~/Documents$ sudo ls -lA [sudo] password for wolf: total 80 drw-r--r-- 2 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-22 20:45 career drw-r--r-- 23 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-02 17:17 computer_languages drw-r--r-- 2 wolf wolf 4096 2009-08-09 23:29 .ecryptfs drw-r--r-- 21 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-02 17:23 misc -rw-r--r-- 1 wolf wolf 27298 2010-05-23 13:01 next.odt drw-r--r-- 3 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-23 15:46 PC_maintenance drw-r--r-- 5 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-08 01:43 software_projects Now I can't even look at my own directory:
Code: /home$ cd /home/ /home$ ls -lA total 20 drwx------ 2 root root 16384 2010-05-07 01:01 lost+found drw-r--r-- 42 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-23 15:35 wolf /home$ cd /home/wolf bash: cd: /home/wolf: Permission denied /home$ sudo cd /home/wolf [sudo] password for wolf: sudo: cd: command not found /home$
somewhere lurking is a file containing the default print resolution, which is not being overwritten by printer settings or cups management. I've asked on the cup forum and nothing successful.
So here's the question:
How can I configure grep to search recursively through all files in a directory, or if need be starting from root to find the pattern "2880" I've looked in the man page for grep and I can't see how to do it, is grep the right tool to use for this ?
I have installed Fedora 12 (Constantine) in my laptop. I updated gnome packages in my system and after the update I found that the menu bar in nautilus is missing. I tried a lot to restore the default appreance it could not be done. Please help me to restore my folder view settings especially the menu bar in nautilus.
