Fedora Installation :: Unable To Login Using The Only User Account?

Mar 29, 2010

If I'm getting good at anything with Fedora, it would be making mistakes. I have Fedora 12 installed and it was running fine until I attempted to set the path in bashrc and cshrc for jdk. Now I am unable to login using the only user account I created at install. When I enter my password the login screens goes blank then my mouse pointer appears with the circling dashed loading symbol for a few secs and then brings me back to the login screen asking for my password again.

Fedora :: Unable To Ftp A User Account On A EC2 Instance Of Fc12

Jun 19, 2010

I am able to ftp the root of my EC2 instance of fc12 with a private key. However, I am unable to ftp a user account on a EC2 instance of fc12.I do not know what commands were given to fc12 to create an AMI that uses a private key instead of a password.As root administrator I like it. However, I am trying to set up users in such a way that Windows users using "My Network Places" can access my EC2 instance of fc12. I have created accounts for my users and set a password for each of them (useradd). The problem is that I am unable to ftp the fc12 server with the user name and password. The error message the client gets when it tries to do so says there is no supported authentication method available. I presume I must somehow change server security or something to allow access to users with passwords but I do not know how to do this.

Ubuntu Security :: Unable To Deny Sudo Access To Regular User Account.

Dec 19, 2010

I made a Desktop User account. When I went on that account, it allowed me to execute sudo as if I was an administrator. I don't know what might be causing this. I do have ufw set up and blocking incoming connections. Do you guys know what might be at the root of this?Also, when I used sudo from the user account (which I shouldn't have been able to do), I provided the password for my admin account.

General :: How To Have Same User Account On Two Different Boxes

Jun 5, 2010

I have two Fedora 10 boxes. Both have a user account, Andrew. I use this account all the time.

Now when I put my USB drive (ext3-filesystem) in box I, create a file in it. It works. But when I attach it to box II and try to access the files, it gives me error - Permission denied. I have to use


sudo chown -R Andrew

Only then I am able to access the files in it.

When I attach my drive to box I again, it also gives me error - Permission denied. So in both boxes, I have to use


sudo chown -R Andrew

first. Otherwise I get Permission denied message.

This means Andrew on both systems is different. How can I make Andrew account on both systems same? So that I can access files on my usb drive without running chown all the time.

General :: Create A SSH User Account On Laptop?

Apr 30, 2010

I never considered I would want to remote access my laptop, or that I would be able to figure out how (I know....). In any case, my (only) username and password are not all that complicated - just there for deterence more than anything else (I have a barely functioning battery and a FDE hard drive, so if you're going to unplug and transport this baby, it'll shut off; my hard drive PW is solid).

In any case, I wanted to create another account that I could use to log into with SSH to be able to access files. I've started by disabling SSH login to my current user account (DenyUsers myusername). I know I could add a new user to my system with its own home directory and all, but I want it as least 'present' or invasive as possible. So in sum, is there a way to create an SSH only user, and if so, how?

I thought I would check here to get some pointers, to be sure I don't mess up my system!

General :: Moving User Account To New Install?

May 17, 2010

plans to upgrade my "production" desktop from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 LTS. Based on what I have read and experienced with "upgrades" it is better to install the new version from scratch. That is what I plan to do. The next task is to install the various additional programs I wish to have. I can make a list of them and do the installs no problem.

So now I get to the question of my user account information. I have my current system built with the following file systems:

/ (for the OS)
/home (for my account)
/data (for all "data" including Firefox and Thunderbird profiles, documents and other data files)

Moving my "data" to the new OS will not be an issue. My user account information is stored in /home/ken. Can this be moved to the new OS? I would like to avoid having to redo gnome and program preferences and configurations, icons on the panel, saved passwords, ssh bookmarks and other stuff which Linux has stored in /home/ken.

I have created an Ubuntu virtual machine and tried a couple of approaches to transferring the files under /home/ken. The results were not promising. Is moving my profile a practical idea or should I just take a couple of hours and tweak everything on the new OS to my liking?

p.s. If I rebuild my profile are there any things I can do to make it "portable" in the future? For when I move to 12.04 LTS?

General :: Create A User Account For A Child In Mint?

Apr 21, 2010

Recently I have renovated an old computer which once belonged to my dad (the old HDD crashed, and I just bought a new one to replace it). My parents want me to fix this computer for my 5-year-old sister to use. I decided to use Linux Mint as the OS because everything (flash, mp3, etc.) is already configured.

How do I create a user account in Linux Mint with limited access for my sister, so that it won't mess up the entire system?

All she does is surf the web, so I'm just worried that she might accidentally mess up a system setting that I eventually will have to fix it.

General :: Set Up User Account To Avoid Giving Much Power?

Jul 30, 2011

I will be setting up a computer for people who have very little experience using computers and I want to limit their ability to break things. I'm thinking Linux is the way to go but I don't know what distribution to use. I don't know anything about their hardware other than it is an old laptop. I don't have a lot of experience with Linux, but I would think that without sudo there is not a lot of things you can break.

What would be a good Linux dist that has everything out of the box? (flash, vnc, office, etc) How should I set up the user account to avoid giving them too much power, yet still allowing the computer to be useable for daily tasks? (Will they be able to update software?) I also want to be able to control the machine remotely since I won't have physical access after I set it up, so I am looking into ssh, vnc, (or a better alternative?).

General :: Saving User Account Settings When Reinstalling?

Jul 30, 2010

When I reinstall my distro (MEPIS, for the last 2.5 years), making my new user account preserve all the old account's settings has always been a difficult and very messy process, especially if I have installed a new copy on another partition. (I'm doing that soon, so I have this copy as a backup until I have everything the way I want it on the new copy.) Most of my stuff gets saved, but not everything. The biggest problem is that, even if I select "preserve data in /home" in the MEPIS installer, my keyboard shortcuts become unusable (not completely erased) under odd circumstances. They're still listed in file /home/josh/kde/share/config/khotkeysrc, but they still can't be used, and I have to open hhotkeysrc and manually delete them and then reenter them in the menu editor (the K menu, by the way, gets completely overwritten).

I can't just overwrite the entire new user account with the old one; I've tried, and something goes wrong so that the new account can't be opened (probably because some important files are inaccessible--I can't tell which ones they become inaccessible).Anyway, is there a program that can preserve all the user account settings neatly for a new installation of the distro? I am supposing there is a program or at least a method, because I never hear others complaining about this problem. I probably don't know something I should know.

General :: User Account With Minimum Privileges On Fedora?

Jun 30, 2010

I need to create a special linux user account that has a very limited set of permissions on the system. Essentially to have read-only permissions for his home dir (and sub dirs) and nothing else - i.e. this user has no write or execute permissions and should not be able to read/access other user dirs or indeed anything outside of his home directory, irrespective of rwx permissions.

General :: Installing User Account In Mint 10 Julia

Jun 17, 2011

I have recently installed linux mint 10 Julia on my wife's Dell. I installed off CD from linux freedom website with the ftp download. My wife wanted her own account so I went to admin/users and groups and created her account. Or so I thought. When I tried to switch users (with the boot CD in and out of the drive) I got the follwing error:

1) "The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_mintMenu" do you want to delete applet from your configuration?"

2) "The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_IndicatorApplet" Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?" Both of these had an orange word bubble with an exclamation point in it.

3) "Nautilus could not create the following required folders; :/home?tina?Disktop,/home/tina/.nautilus. Before running Nautilus, please create these folders or set permissions such that Nautilus can create them." This came in a red word bubble with an "x" in it. One last thing. When I installed linux mint 10 on my ancient compac (it has a pent 4 processor and had win 2K on it) all I had to do was plug in a usb wireless card and I was online. My wife's Dell has a wireless card built in and I can't find it in mint 10. How do I set up the wireless. Sorry for the "2 fer" but I'm pressed for time and have to get to work. I'm a copier tech/electrician and I'm good with the hardware but with the software, not so much. I'm sticking with linux no matter what the learning curve because my Mom gave me the compac evo thinking it was useless and I've brought it back to life with linux.

General :: System Sound Not Working On New User Account

Jan 10, 2010

I am running Debian Lenny with the default Gnome desktop. When I set up a new user the sound is not available. It says the device in not installed. I have used the Gnome system menu as follows.System, Administration, Users and Groups, then used the add user button and entered the appropriate info. I then went and clicked on the properties button and then the User Privileges section and checked off the "use audio devices" button. Still no sound. When I go to System, Preferences, Sound, Devices, and do the sound tests I get report that device is not installed.

When I am logged in to the user (jon) that I set up when doing the D.Lenny install, the sound on all various media play back works fine.There is one with 1 exception when loged in to this user(jon). I can not get any sound from the system sounds like select check box = toggle .wav, chose menu item = beep, etc. It would be realy nice to know how to repair or configure tis issue as well.under system info, pci devices it lists as follows Multimedia audio controller, Intel Corp 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW. Mother board is a ECS 915P-A2 and I guess about 2007 or so vintage. 1 G mem installed and a P-4 2.66 chip. It has the sound built in to it. It works fine on WinXP.
