I am currently using the windows version of gVim to edit source files on a networked drive mapped to a linux system, as well as local files created in cygwin.
The problem is that the windows version of gVim destroys the original file permissions on the respective systems. IE: Files on cygwin are defaulted to 077. When edited by the windows version of vim they are saved as 777.This problem doesn't even occur when using ms-notepad (as well as all other editors I've tried), so I am not quite sure why gVim does it.
A possible solution would be to use cygwin's gVim for everything, but that's rather cumbersome as it requires running an x11 environment to support it, and it causes some problems when running some commands from within gVim (or vim for that matter) when working on the networked drive.
Any ideas how I might be able to maintain the existing file permissions?
This morning while on a different machine the problem with cygwin did not occur. Cygwin & gVim were the same version, however the other machine is running WinXP while the machine the problem is occurring on runs Win7.
I have to copy and move files over two systems all the time. So when I am on system 1, I simply use the command
Code: $scp * system2:/some_directory
There are many files in PWD of system1 with different extensions. Of all the files in the PWD on system1, I don't need a file called *residual.dat as it it particularly big and wastes a lot of time copying.How can I make a shortcut so that every time I do scp, it copies everything but the *residual.dat file?
I have a Qnap 219p NAS to which I have connected a USB external harddrive. I can access the external harddrive from my windows box using the network share, but at first i couldn't access the folders. The permissions set in the NAS GUI for the external drive is correct and are identical to the permissions set to the 2 internal drives.
I ssh'ed to the nas and used 'chmod -R 770 /share/external/sds1' - this granted me access to the folders, and some files. I can open all files in the root, but if I go just 2 folders 'deeper', i can't open the files in this folder, and in the folders after that.
In ssh, if i navigate to the folder wher I cannot open the files and use 'ls -l', i can see that the permissions (770) hasn't been applied to these files. How can I get chmod to apply the 770 permission to all files, folders, subfolders and files in subfolders etc., without having to chmod every folder one by one?
I work with this travel company that host sites for different agents. They have ALL the sites in one directory and each site has its own search.php file. How can I locate, and change all the search.php files permissions to 644 in one shot? Is this possible maybe with the find command? I read the man page for this but I am not sure how to write out the command.
I have two HDDs in computer, one with ntfs and windows on it and second with btrfs. I want to get data on that btrfs disk. I boot with bootable USB stick with ubuntu on it but I found out that I cannot copy anzthing. I dont have permissions. How to change that. I am logged in as nobody here in USB stick, and files are probably locked as mz previous username when I create them.
I'm having a problem with my hard drive. Windows can't even open it. I run DSL linux and successfully moynted the drive so I can view my file structure. I thought I just connect my other windows HD, mount it and then just copy all the folders I need. Unfortunatelly I'm getting cp: cannot create directory blabla - read-only file system. Is there a way at all to copy NTFS files in Linux?
I am running some Pcap files through editcap and then tshark. I am running fedora 11. This will create a couple of thousand text files all numbered sequentially 1-x. How can I copy these files across a network(I connect using putty) or how can I copy them onto an external HD so that when I view them on the windows machine they have the right formatting (Windows know to open them with wordpad/notepad) basically that windows knows that they are text?
I have a comp with Snow Leopard/Windows/Ubuntu 10.4 on it. What I'm trying to do is set permissions to let me copy files from the Snow Leopard partition. I use to be able to. Now I get Permission denied. What do I need to do to set up permissions to the hfs+ journaled partition?
I need a command-line method of copying files from a Linux box to a Windows machine that is in a domain and requires authentication. I cannot install additional software or services on the Windows XP machine. I can install any software on the Linux machine. I've tried scp, but the connection failed and if my understanding is correct it is because scp requires that the target (windows machine) be running an ssh service. Is there a command-line linux utility that can pass Windows domain user and password and then copy a file from the linux machine to a share on the windows machine?
Lets say I log in to bash, open a file in vi, then using alt-f2 I open a new terminal. After logging in I navigate to a second file and open that in vi. How can I CnP between these two files?
I found this from [URL]. I'm not familiar with this command shift-8-y-y. I follow the vimtutor and use virtual mode. I tried this sequence and was unsuccessful.
And, I read this about registers. I found a mention of using double_quote-p to 'put' or paste the register, but this does not work in a different file. The second file reported the register empty.
Alternatively, I read in the VIM docs, it is possible to open multiple files under split screens. This may be a course to a solution. The need I often encounter has me navigating in a different bash window to find a file, then wishing to copy between the two. Whereas, I imagine, a split VIM window useful for files in the same directory.
i want secondary users can able to change the files permissions of primary group?user MAC is having www as a primary and httpd as secondary group. But he want to change the file permissions (chmod) httpd group files. Is it possible or not? I think its not possible. If it`s possible then let me know how?
I've been using Ubuntu for a few years and I am having issues trying to load .jar files and .exe files in Wine. I keep getting an error message that says my computer doesn't have permission to load these files. I've done some research and found people saying to enable the file as executable in the files properties, to enable executable in the permissions folder, and to allow source code on the Ubuntu Software screen, but whenever I try to check these boxes, they immediately revert to having a line through them instead. I remember when I was running Ubuntu a few years ago I was able to completely disable this restriction in terminal, but I can't remember what I did.
I am using Ubuntu after a BSOD error. Ubuntu is awesome, I can access all my windows files, however, I need to access my programs on windows. Here's what happened - I accidentally changed permissions after getting a virus. I then tried to do a system restore and during that process the computer crashed. When I try to boot to windows in every possible mode, I am always left with the dreaded blue screen of death.
After burning files to DVD+RW, the owner is changed to root, and all permissions are read only. I want to periodically open these files, update them, and save to the DVD again, but I no longer have permission and cannot change the permissions since I am no longer the owner. I tried sudo commands, but get responses "Read only file system". I have erased and reformatted the DVD and started over but get the same results. I have Ubuntu 9.04, and have tried Brasero and Nautilus and get the same problem. Am I using the wrong kind of DVD/CD?
I've just read that I can't change the file permissions of files and folders if they are sitting in what was my old Windows D: drive. Is this correct? If so what is the work-around?
I don't want to have to cut and paste that entire D: drive's contents over to a recognised Ubuntu folder. I had in my mind that this D drive would continue to be my data dumping ground, to which I need read/write access to.
I have a NFS shared directory between two linux machines, one with RedHat3 and one with CentOS 5.4.On the CentOS 5.4 machine I have InfoBright installed. In that directory, I want to create files with InfoBright and then to select from them with MySQL on the RedHat3 machine.The problem is that InfoBright creates files with 660 permissions and mysql with 666, and I cannot SELECT from any file due to the fact that is not "readable by all"(this is the actual error). I can change the permissions manually, but I need them to be created with 666 permissions, so that I can import them automatically on the other side with a script.Is there any way to change the permissions of the InfoBright created files?
I'm in an organization where each user has a Windows network username, and a central windows server with a folder for each user. I can access the folder using SAMBA and my (windows) network user name. I want to change the permissions (sharing settings) for my folder on this windows server - using only Ubuntu.
Had i been using windows I would simply right-click on the folder, go to permissions settings and add/modify users in the list.First of all, is it even possible to do this using Ubuntu?
I just installed Karmic, but I can't copy an old user's home folder (/home/oldusername/) because everything is owned by root.I read but I'm concerned about messing up the system or the files in that old user's folder.So, how do I adjust the permissions of the files in /home/oldusername so that I can use openssh to copy them over my home network to my other computer? I have the ssh part figured out, but the files will not copy to the laptop due to permissions.
So i pulled some files off my buddy's computer via my wireless home network, i can access them but in the permission tab the owner is "nobody" so i can move the files. How can i change the permissions to enable me to move the files?
Can anyone suggest a product that will allow a developer to raise a ticket (or similar sort of trackable item) which can be used to track the progress of a software build through a number of environments?Basically It's just a case of creating a ticket, using that to trigger a software build, then requiring some form of sign off to allow a second stage, and then another sign off for a third. It's not about building things, just tracking an issue through various stages of testing through to production.
I'm looking at replacing an environment which currently uses jira for this purpose, but I've no knowledge of it, and am keen on other GPL tools instead. Jira is, as a product, massively overkill for what is required too. So I'm keen on one which might fit in with the rest of my toolset - cobbler, func, puppet etc. I was looking at trac, which seems like it might have some relevant angles to it, but I really can't tell because having not done this sort of project before I don't honestly know what to call what i'm after. I don't *think* that something like bugzilla would be appropriate as it's too specifically about bug tracking, rather than a generic workflow with signoff stages and such.
Something has changed all my file permissions to read only and when I try and change them back it wont let me. Is there something I can do i Nautilus to correct it?
It even effects the waste basket-all the stuff in there is now read only and when I delete items I get a file operations window, which comes and then goes like its deleted them, but they re still in the waste basket, doesnt show an error message like it does if I try and move any other file.
I would like to change the permissions for a directory and all files inside the directory how do I do this? The website is located only on my local network so I am not worried about security. Also what would be the optimal permissions for running wordpress.
