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.

Ubuntu :: Way To Grant 'root' Privileges To User Account?

Jan 2, 2010

Is there a way to grant 'root' privileges to my user account? My account name ... I'll call it 'masterskop' as it is my forum name here, but not on my computer.Would it look like this in the sudoers' file?My purpose is to get access to all the folders and files in the 'File System'. The root and lost+found folders have 'Xs' on them...No access! And for example, under properties of the 'var' folder it states that 'you are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions.' How can I get access to all of it everytime I login as the main user of my computer? I do not have anyone else using this computer.I did edit this file and used my real user name ... logged out and logged back in and still I do not have access/edit these folders and files.

Fedora :: New Account (with Admin Privs) For The New User?

Jan 7, 2010

I just tried to change a user account by changing its name, password, and home directory. But first I had created a new account with the new name, pass, home directory. I tried to log into the new account but got a dead account. Nothing came up, and it didn't allow anything, complaining about "can't create Nautilus," and other such error messages.

Tried to go into the Constantine login screen and put in "root" and the original password. "Invalid Use..." Tried "root" with the new pass. "Invalid..." So what can I do at this point to get in and create a nice, clean, new account (with admin privs) for the new user?!

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

Quote:

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

Quote:

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.

I am a new Linux user and have a question about the administrative authentication. When I am logged in as a user and I need to do something that requires root privileges the little password window comes up and I enter the root password. My question is how long are the root privileges granted for?I noticed that a few minutes after finishing checking out the firewall configuration tool and closing the window that I was still able to re-enter the fire wall tool and other administrative tools. How do I log out of the root privileges without logging out and then back into my account?

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.
