General :: Can't Make New Folder Or Copy Paste In Newly Created Partition?
Mar 17, 2011
I just maked an ext4 partition by the help of gparted. Ubuntu is my only OS no dual boot. Using Ubuntu Maverick. The problem is partition must be open as root to do any work else it wont even allow me to open file,create folder,cut copy paste or anything.
I just want to know how the default size of a newly created file or folder is 4.0 kb.Does this value is mentioned in any configuration file,if that is the case can we edit that file and can we change this default value.
We have 10.x ubuntu server with XP clients. We have samba share folders at LAN. Is there any possibility that we can disable copy and paste option for some specific folders, while other data folders remain as usual in our shared data?
i am facing a problem regarding permissions. how can i set 775 permission for all newly created files and folders. when i give chmod -R 775 /data permission is getting to all files and folders. but when i create a folder i wont get that permission. i want this 755 permission should be permanent for all old and newly create files

I want to make it now because it is still under the size of a dvd 3.7GB and i want to put it safe on a dvd to restore fast and not have to customize anything in case of a disaster , like me running dd again )
The usual vim yank and paste works only in the same window (but does work across files and close/save commands). Is it possible to make it work across terminals (yank from window in one terminal and paste in another) and if so, how?
I'm using SSH (with -X specified) from a Ubuntu box to a RHEL4 box and running GVim. It opens as expected in my local X, but the copy and paste via select doesn't work. I cannot select text in GVim and paste in a local window, nor can I select text from a local window and paste in GVim. This works, however, when I SSH (with -X specified) to a different RHEL4 box. Is there something I need to install on the remote machine? I am running Parcellite 0.9.2 on the local box, but closing it doesn't make the problem go away, and it is not interfering with the other box.
I'm using a work computer so i don't have a root access. I've tried "+y, "*y, set clipboard=unnamed. It looks like my vim doesn't support +clipboard (version 7.0).I'm using Linux Centos 5 so fakeclips doesn't actually help (i think)It's a pain to type stuff manually from firefox to vim or other apps and vice versa.
I just installed Fedora11 with the KDE desktop and completed a yum update.

We are running Oracle 10.2.04 RAC on Red Hat Linux 5 and when ever our SAN storage admin created new LUNS we have to reboot the servers so that server can see newly created LUNS. This causing downtime to our application. How we can add LUNS dynamically without rebooting servers. We are using device mapper mulitpath from red hat version 0.4.7-30.el5 and we have QLOGIC HBA's.
just installed ubuntu couple of days back on my netbook. I am still a beginner, enjoying my adventure exploring ubuntu. I have another desktop which runs on XP. I am able to access XP shared folders through my netbook(linux). However, i wanted to copy files from XP infact folders using TERMINAL in my netbook, not copy and paste using my mouse. Are there any commands for it?
I am having a strange problem whenever I copy something from a webpage I see content more than required copied and I then have to manually go and delete all the content. This has been quite frustrating. I am using Ubuntu 9.04 and Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop. What should I check?
What is the best way to copy and paste some text among text documents in Linux terminal environment? Suppose I have 2 documents, A and B, and I want to copy some part of A to B. What is the way to achieve this?
I am trying to upgrade PHP on our linux box ( CentOS ) I copied the configure command from the phpinfo and now I want to execute that.I am not able to copy the command from an editor in linux to the command prompt, clicking the wheel om my mouse does not work, neither does shift-insert or ctrl-shift-insert.It does work in the editor itself.Is there a way to do this ?Or is there a way to execute the command in linux while it is in the file ? Like a bat file on Windows ?
I often have issues starting my window manager--xfce. My computer misbehaves in one of 3 ways, one of which is to fail to open X, but generate several screens of info. I want to paste that info to this site, but since I'm in the shell, not the terminal (please correct my vocabulary if it's wrong here), I don't know how to copy and paste the output, since right-clicking doesn't give me a menu. Even if I could copy I'm not sure the information would be accessible in X. Are there any other options?
I am trying to copy paste from a file in Nano to a text editor outside of nano on my machine (I am running windows using Nano through Putty) and I cannot figure out how to do it. I can select with mouse support enabled everything that I want to in Nano and I can cut it, but when I try to copy into my other text editor, it does not work.
i've written a bash script to add new users to our system. the script works so I won't bother you all about that. when a new user is created with it, they can immediately login to our domain from any terminal, which is good. However, the newly created user is unable to login to debian at all, and so cannot access the server. when attempting to do so, they get a message like "the system administrator has disabled your account". This is a good thing really as normal users have no need for debian login, but I do need to add a few admin users who will need direct access to the server machine.
This is the code I'm using to add the user. The rest of my script is just a wrapper and GUI. I figure the login shell may have something to do with it, so I tried changing the shell of a user to the default /bin/bash. This resulted in the user being able to login - sort of. Gnome doesn't load though, and there's a cascade of errors across the screen about things failing to save or load settings. mostly stuff like nautilus, X, and gnome. the desktop background is black and there's no interface. Logging in with a previously existing account works fine though. Clearly I have an issue somewhere.
I have an Intel setup with 64bit Ubuntu. I have an NVIDIA graphics card. When I used compiz, I found that my mouse would follow newly created windows. (e.g, I would bring up terminal and if I hit F1, the mouse would move to the upper right of the screen by itself. I have since turned off compiz which resolves the issue. where I can turn it off/on.
I just created a LUKS filesystem following these instructions. Everything seemed okay at first. It mounted with no problem and I moved some files there. I then unmounted it and remounted it to see if I would need to use a special command. It mounted right away and even allowed access to normal users. So, I rebooted to see if anything would change. Before I go on I should say that my partitioning scheme is weird. Not knowing any better I 'upgraded' to 11.04 when my update manager told me a new version was out. This didn't go well and I had to do a fresh install to put 10.10 back on my machine. After this the way it partitions the drive has been weird. What I had was /dev/sda1 which has my installation on it including /home. But, where it gets weird is /dev/sda2 would not manually mount. Looking at the disk in gparted it showed /dev/sda2 THEN under that, as if they were sub partitions or something, I had sda6 and sda7. I had been using 6 and 7 for various things and they mounted fine, so I decided to encrypt 7. After reboot I only have sda1. Everything else shows up as unallocated and ever way I try to mount I get device does not exist.
I only did the procedure for sda7 but 6 has been affected as well. There is no longer a sda2 the way there was before. This always bothered me anyway since I wanted sda2 for my /home but it wanted to call it sda6 and put it under sda2 like I said, I could never fix that, now this.
