Ubuntu :: Unzipped The Folder And Then Changed Directory To The Unzipped Folder?

Mar 5, 2011

recently I downloaded warzone 2100. It was downloaded in tar.gz format. I searched for the way to install it and I am not able to install it. I unzipped the folder and then changed my directory to the unzipped folder. After that I used ./configure. After doing this, when I write make, it gives error and says no make file found. What can I do to solve this problem.

General :: Cannot Change File Permissions On A Mounted File System

Apr 6, 2010

I have an ntfs partition that I wish to access as a normal user(non-root). For this I did the following. As root I created a folder /windows and did a chmod 777 -R on /windows. Then I added the following line to /etc/fstab


/dev/sda3 /windows ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,umask=000 1 0

Now, the partition is mounted alright but the problem is that when any other user (non-root) creates a files in /windows (say by executing touch newfile) the newly created file has the owner and group set as root. The non-root user can create the file and he can also delete the file, however, he cannot change the permissions of the file and also the owner:group is always set as root:root. How do I get across this problem, i.e. how do I mount a partition, so that a non-root user can also change the permissions and ownerships of the files he creates.

General :: Copying Permissions From One File To Another?

Nov 4, 2009

copying permissions from one file to another.I know that command for changing permission is "chmod", for example chmod 666 filename However, I have one file filename1 and by listing all contents of a directory with ls -al I can find out its permissions in form -rwwx and similar. Now I want to define exact same permissions to other file "filename2". How to use chmod command to accomplish this. Other way around would be to simply copy permissions from one file to another. Is there any command for this purpose?

General :: Samba File Permissions For Multiple Groups In The Same General Path?

Nov 4, 2009

I'm using my Linux (SLES 10) server as a File Server at this point. I need to set File Permissions to nested folders differently to different groups. For example:

homesharedengineering* should be read only for groupA
homesharedengineeringadmin should be read & write for groupB Plus read only for groupA
homesharedengineeringautocad should be read & write for groupC Plus read only for groupA

I've been using Webmin and Putty to set permissions but Putty only allows me the Default Group, it won't allow me to set several groups on the same directory. Webmin seems to allow me to add multiple groups (Webmin --> Others --> File Manager --> Info & ACL tab will provide extended abilities) but when I add multiple groups, they don't seem to take effect? I'm wondering if my setup at the 'Share' level or at the hierarchy of my folder structure (unix based) needs to be set specifically?

General :: File Permissions Apply To Symlinks?

Jun 27, 2011

Let's say you have this structure:

+ directory
-- file1
-- file2
-- file3 -> /tmp/file3

file3 is a link to another file3 somewhere else on the system.

Now let's say I chmod 777 the directory and all contents inside it. Does my file3 in /tmp receive those permissions? Also, let's say we have the same situation but reversed.

/tmp/file3 -> /directory/file3

If I apply the permissions on the file being linked to, how does that effect the link?

General :: File Permissions In Every Element Of Path Or Just Last One?

Dec 17, 2010

Kernel, slackware 12.0 For a given app run by me as user john to be able to create a file in /foo1/foo2/, what do I need? (a) john to have write permissions in /foo1/? (b) john to have write permissions in /foo1/foo2/? (c) john to have write permissions in both /foo1/ and /foo1/foo2/? Any hint will be welcome. Note: No. It's not homework. KTorrent complains when trying to create the files being downloaded, saying 'permission denied'. But I think he is being run by another user. I can explain in a different thread.

General :: Group Permissions On File Or Share

Oct 17, 2009

I'm studying Linux and just started reading about permissions and ownership. My question is how would you have multiple users or groups given access to a certain directory? When doing an ls -l I see the owner, group and others that have permissions that have access to the file or directory. But what if I need multiple different groups access to a particular file or directory all with different permissions?

General :: Changing File Permissions And Authorizations

Jan 4, 2010

I first installed linux as ubuntu version 9.04 straight off of a Computer Active CD and liked it so started to delve into file permissions and authorisations, simple stuff I suppose just so I could feel my way around things for a while. Using the built in Ubuntu software centre I downloaded and installed a prog which handles authorisations and I found that very helpful but then through the update manager I installed the latest distribution update (9.10) and now find that the authorisation software only lists a couple of things that I can get to and consequently every time I mount one of my hard disks I'm asked for my admin password even though I am logged in as administrator which is a hassle,

a small one but there all the same, as a newbie I realise it must be me not understanding something but I just dont know what, also in the previous version right clicking on the logging out panel gave you an option to remove the 60 second shutdown or restart delay and that has disappeared in the new version, again its really only just a nuisance thing but I find that sorting out this sort of thing will help me to understand the system

General :: CGI Script - Groups And File Permissions

Jun 6, 2011

I am having problems with groups and file permissions. I have a file owned by myself

-rw-rw-r-- 1 diblemar users 2.1K Jun 3 06:02 /cluster/shared/Injects/1404_1405_1000033606_79964.return.xml

I want to modify the file using a cgi script running on an apache server (on the same machine). Both diblemar and apache are in the same group.


However, I receive a file permissions error when I try to modify the file. I assumed that with the permission settings above apache would be able to modify a file owned by someone else in the apache group.

General :: Fedora File Permissions Not Taking Effect?

Jun 27, 2011

I have a directory /models/ with the permissions

drw-rw-rw- 2 owner developers 4096 Jun 24 15:13 models

these were set with

sudo chmod -R 0666 *

My user has developers as the primary group (the same group as the file), but I cannot access the directory via the terminal or ftp.

[myUser@machine]$ id myUser
uid=503(myUser) gid=505(developers) groups=505(developers)
$ cd models
-bash: cd: models: Permission denied

I had the same problem before the directory belonged to my group, and I even went so far as to restart the server, without any luck. How do I set permissions to this directory so that I and other members of the group developers can access it?

I have a web application which calls scripts on the linux box it's deployed on. Currently, there are some file permission issues which prevent the scripts from running properly. How can I give my web application the needed permissions? I thought of creating a user 'group' , assigning my web app to that group, and changing the ownership of the script files to the new group. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with the following: What user id does my web app have? If my web app does not have an user id,

General :: Unable To Change File Permissions To Execute

Jun 16, 2010

I've checked out a subversion project with source c++ files in netbeans 6.8 on Red Hat 5.5. My machine has a dual boot with windows xp and RHEL 5.5 so I checked out the project on a folder called winshare which is a shared drive/partition (E: under xp) allowing both operating systems to access the contents. I've Fedora as virtual machine on xp and wanted to be able to work on the source seamlessly whether using fedora or RHEL.

Problem is that Netbeans is able to build the source just fine but I can't seem to run the generated executable. It has -rw-rw---- permission and the owner is the same user logged in (let's say user1) but no matter what I do, whether I change permissions as user1 or root issuing command chmod 777 -R /dir/where/file/is does not have any effect whatsoever on the executable as well as any .cpp or .h files (nothing that I need exectue permissions on .cpp but just to make a point).

General :: Read And Execute Permissions For Executing The File

Binary files need only execute permission to execute. No read permission is required. But all executable files must be read by the kernel into main memory before executing. Also script files need both read and execute permissions for executing the file.

General :: File / Folder Permissions And Groups On Linux With Apache?

Jun 26, 2010

I'm trying to learn about permissions on linux webserver with apache.Some clues to the system: The server I have to play around with is Fedora based. Apache runs as apache:apache. To allow for e.g. php to write to a file the file needs to be chmod 777. 755 is not sufficiant.What I'm wondering is basically how set up permissions like they should be on e.g. a "shared web host".My main problem is that if I set a permission so that one user cannot access anothers home folder, then apache can't read from the public_html folder either.

To keep the users out I need to set chmod 700. But to let apache to read I need to have at least execute on world,so a 701 basically works, but won't let some users in.So I'm really stuck on what to do. Have been concidering adding the apache user to the frous grours
below to avoid having to add the world execute flag, but is that a bad thing? Should it be the other way around, the users in the groups below should also be in the apache group?I was aiming at having 4 groups:

1. webapp: same as dev_int, but is the only one that can go inside the webapp/live folder to e.g. do an update from the repo.

2. dev_int: can read,write and execute everything in the "web root", including the two below, but nothing outside of the web root

3. dev_ext: can read write and execute in all client folders, but cannot access anything outside of the webapp root

4. clientsBasic ftp accounts. Has a home folder with a public_html, but cannot access any other home folders

General :: Rpm - Overriding Installed File / Directory Permissions & Owners?

Jun 29, 2010

Every time I update certain packages with rpm/yum, they reset certain permissions on their files / directories which I have intentionally changed for various reasons. Is there a way I can override the permissions that the packagers have specified in the RPMs, and force it to keep the permissions/owner/group that I've set?On a Debian system, I would just use "dpkg-statoverride". I can't find any equivalent for RPM systems (CentOS 4 & 5 in my case).

General :: Change Thunderbird's File Permissions When Saving Attachments?

Jun 29, 2010

I'm using Thunderbird 3.x on Ubuntu (Linux). When I save an attachment to my computer, the file gets saved with only the owner (me) having read/write permissions. In other words, the file gets saved as -rw

Frequently, I want my group to have permission, or to give read permission to everyone. Is there a way to do change Thunderbird's default file permissions so I don't have to do this manually every time?

General :: Changing File Permissions Works As Root But Not As Sudo

Nov 22, 2010

I have a really strange problem. I have a few files in a large directory that I want to make readable by everyone. So I try this:

sudo find readme* -not -perm -o+r -exec chmod +r {} ;

and get this:

sudo: unable to execute /usr/bin/find: Success

I don't know why it says Success, because the permissions were not changed. I verified by typing this:

find readme* -not -perm -o+r -exec ls -l {} ;

and get something like

-rw------- 1 root root 536871076 Nov 22 14:06 readme_20101122200429
-rw------- 1 root root 536871892 Nov 22 14:08 readme_20101122200642
-rw------- 1 root root 293458128 Nov 22 14:10 readme_20101122200859

as a last resort, I tried:

sudo chmod +r *

and got:

sudo: unable to execute /bin/chmod: Success

and again Success really means fail. So, I gave up and logged in as root and tried:

find readme* -not -perm -o+r -exec chmod +r {} ;

This time it worked. Why?

EDIT: /etc/sudoers looks like:

## Allow root to run any commands anywhere
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
user1 ALL=(ALL) ALL
