Fedora :: File Gets Password Protected?

Mar 22, 2010

This is sort of a weird question.'m helping an agency develop a Microsoft Access database. They use windows and I use Fedora. I can run Access in Crossover Office if I don't get too fancy.I've sent what I've done to them for their review and comments and somehow it has become password protected. I've checked the Access settings and their is no password set from Access. I've tried a chmod666 on the file and sent it to him again and he says it is still calling for a password

Ubuntu :: Password Protected .doc File; Only Opens As Read Only?

Nov 30, 2010

I created a password-protected .doc file in Windows yesterday using the latest version of OpenOffice (3.2.1)Opening the file worked perfectly; double-clicked the file, OpenOffice popped up and prompted me for the password, then it let me edit the document as usual.Tried it on another computer with Microsoft Word; worked perfectly as wellFor some reason though, it won't work in Ubuntu (10.10). I'll double-click the file, it'll open with OpenOffice and prompt me for the password, but once it opens it's in "Read Only" mode.I tried it on another Windows computer, just to see if it would work, and it did.I right-clicked the .doc file and looked at the permissions: (picture edited for privacy)Every time I tried changing it from "Read-only" to "Read and write" it automatically (and immediately) switched back to "Read-only"

Ubuntu :: File-Sync With Unison To A Password-protected Share?

May 11, 2011

Been thinking about a new backup-strategy for my family and me. In our house is an Ubuntu Server (10.10) and NAS (Zyxel NSA210). Now I thought I'd create a Cron Tab entry on all machines which will sync specific folders automatically to either the NAS or a specific backup drive in the server. So now the question is: "How do I do that without seriously compromising each family members privacy by making their backed up files available to everyone in the house?" So in essence I'd like to sync/back up the files to a password protected share for each family member. But this process should still be done automatically every few minutes or so without them having to enter any password at all as their specific password is stored locally.

General :: Using Grep To Remove Line And Write Back To Same File?

Feb 10, 2010

remove a line starting with specific word with grep. Here is what I found

grep -v '^cc$' data.txt

Here I remove all lines with on 'cc' in that line. But I want the result write back to data.txt

I try several ways

grep -v '^cc$' data.txt > output.txt # works but to another file
echo `grep -v '^cc$' data.txt` > data.txt # didn't work, all carets gone, become one line
grep -v '^cc$' data.txt > data.txt # data.txt is empty after running this

How can I save the result of grep to the input file?

General :: Change What Windows XP Considers To Be A 'protected Operating System File'?

Apr 1, 2011

At work I'm using a windows box with local and network drives. One of drives I have mapped is my Linux home directory (We have separate windows and linux accounts and home directories here). When I view it from windows, all of the files and folders beginning with . are shown, as would be expected. (Although . and .. aren't in any folder)

Just wondering if there is a way to tell windows to not show anything starting with a dot. I was hoping there's a registry entry or something that defines what a 'protected operating system file' is, so I could put dot files in the same category as thumbs.db etc.

General :: Delete Protected Windows Executable Files Via System?

Oct 26, 2009

I use Ubuntu 9.04 exclusively on my own machines, but I have a couple of flash drives that got infected by some corrupt windows executable (*.exe) files, probably by somebody's trojan (they are Cruzer 4GB so came with installed fancy programs that I dont need but didnt remove and Windows keeps installing unwanted ini files and other trash every time I use them in somebody elses machine or in an internet cafe). I deleted quite a few files, but some are stubborn.
$ sudo chmod +w-X doesnt seem to work. How do I unprotect and remove them? The filesystem is vFAT.

I suspect the files were created by some kind of a trojan as my work requires my flash to be pretty promiscuous.
When I 've backed up all the good files I need, I'd be happy to reformat the flash drives as straight vanilla data storage and retrieval, provided I can still use them on a variety of machines running MS windows as well as on my Linux machines. Any guidance on reformatting?
