OpenSUSE Wireless :: Grant Non-root Users Wicd Access?
May 30, 2010
I have wicd 1.6.1 (bzr-r426) and it is working very good with my root user but with all those which have not the root rights wicd asks for superuser password to connect. I want to avoid this pop-up window to be shown, how can I proceed? I first thought about the sid and gid but it seems that there is no improvements using chmod 4755 and 2755 on the different files involved in.
Is there any way to grant access to non root users to use some commands like reboot and date and some other commands that root user can work with .I tried chmod on their binaries and added them to root group but nothing happened.
I find FTP server software confusing in Linux. Using ServU for Windows for an example, all I need to do is to create users via the ServU interface and choose a folder I want that user to have access to and their permissions, and viola, they can connect to that directory, and that directory only.
But in the the land of Linux, it apparently can't be managed this easy. I have a web server with multiple domains, and therefore multiple users need access to their own web root. So with that in mind, what FTP server software should I use (there are plenty out there) and how would I go about to create a user per domain, so that they can log in using FTP to manage their site, and only have access to their own web root, and nothing else?
I need to customize linux kernel root file system for embedded linux system. During compile time, for root file system I am able to create different user/group ex: "gnumuzic/Muzic". But I want to give access to group "Muzic" to some folders like /dev/nexig during compile time.
I had a wireless connection to open suse from last year. I then had a problem with my Netgear 824 router. I have reconnected to windows vista. Now I have to get opensuse working on wireless. I do not have much experience in opensuse I have read the forums and the sticky and also from wicd forums. I have checked the yast settings and it is for AR242x ath0 and Wired L2 100 eth0.
Details:- Opensuse version 11 ,2.6.25-1.1 default Laptop ASus F5RL Atheros AR242x I have done the following:-
I have a rtl8192e card and the drivers and everything are set up properly. I can not connect to WEP encrypted networks using network manager. I can however connect using iwconfig and dhcpcd. I uninstalled network manager and installed WICD and have the same problem. It will connect to the access point when it is configured with WPA, but not WEP which we need to use for the other computer. In the status bar of WICD it looks like it is trying to configure the encryption as WPA no matter what I select. I've looked in the config files for WICD and can't see anything that would do it.
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.
I've been intrested in linux for the past few months. I'm using Ubuntu 9.x version on my laptop. I'm able to connect to wireless internet as a root user. However when I login as a non root user, I'm not able to connect to wifi. The NetworkManager program doesn't load at all. I've checked the permissions of /usr/sbin/NetworkManager file, it was 755. I did some googling and tried setting 'set user id' for it, resulting in 4755 perm. But still, I can't open up the NetworkManager utility to connect to the WiFi. But I've no problem logging as a root user. I just don't want to connect to Internet as a root user.
I'm using Kubuntu 10.04 at the moment. Every time I log in, KDE Wallet asks me to give a password so that Kopete can access my login password to login. Is there any way you can 'grant permission' to access the wallet for certain applications so that I don't have to fill in my password every time?
On RedHat 5 64-bit.I have a group that requires read-only access to the /var directory.I believe someone mentioned SGID and ACL stuff, and I've been researching this solution, but I wanted to check with you all first to ensure there wasn't an easier way to do this. Basically, I just need folks that belong in this certain group to read the contains of any file/directory contained within /var.
I am trying to setup a Rsync backup method.I have multiple files and folders all OWNED by different users.Now I can read the files as root.But I want to make a user for RSYNC that can ONLY read all these files for copying them across.It requires to create a non password login and I dont want to do that with the root user ! I have tried to create a new user and use 'setfacl':setfacl -m u:someuser:r /var/test.But when I su to 'someuser' I cannot copy the files to my homedir. So I think it wont work for rsync also.
I am trying to set up an ampache server using apache as the webserver. The instructions have the following line as one of the requirments: Your webserver has read access to the /sql/ampache.sql file and the /config/ampache.cfg.php.dist file..I have essentially zero experience with apache, and I'm not sure how to grant read access to a file.
I'm connected to the internet using a wireless router. Each time I boot, I have to grant root privileges and type in a shell: iwconfig wlan0 essid linksys key dhclient wlan0 Isn't there a file(or location) that I can modify to automatically grant root privileges and execute these commands when debian starts? Something like autoexec.bat in windows.
Something else I'd like to mention is when I execute iwconfig.... for the first time, I get this incomplete result:
IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"linksys" Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=27 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key*********** Power Management:off
I have a JavaCL program trying to open a port on 41xxx and it is getting permission denied unless I run it as root. I would like to grant a single user this permission for opening this port. This program runs fine on a vanilla ubuntu install but not on server. Where does Ubuntu handle user permissions for opening ports?I understand this is typically a no-no on a server but this is an unusual circumstance.
Im trying to config my intranet to be accessible from inside the network (lan) without need of password and ask for a passwd for those who are viewing from Wan ....
Today my intranet can only be accessed from Lan, external access give me an Unauthorized message, I took look around, try #irc and still can get the appropriated help, I hope that someone here could help me on that...
I am having trouble with flash player. Well first I had some trouble with my router and rebooted linux. Then, flash wouldn't play sound anymore. I updated flash etc but still no sound. Then I tried as root administrator and flash sound works fine there.
So I checked the sound preferences from the Control Center and found out, all output devices are set to autodetect instead to one of the output devices I have. But when I switched to the user account to change the preferences accordingly, no sound was played at all.. Also, when I want to use the loudspeaker icon at the bottom to reach the volume control in the user account, I get an error message stating there was some connection refused.
I have a non-super user on my box which I'd like to give it MOUNT and UMOUNT permissions but I don't know how.For example purposes, the user name is "USER".I don't want to make it into a SuperUser, just give it rights to be able to issue the MOUNT and UMOUNT commands at the terminal.
I can connect to my wireless router while logged in as root, but not under my user account. I went into YAST and the user maintenance area and gave myself every permission (Add, Edit, Delete Users or Accounts), but kde network maanger will not allow me to connect to my router.
I have currently have opensuse 11.2 installed. I am trying to setup samba shares which you can only access as certain user. Currently looks like the only way I can access these share is use root username/password!
I want to which GUI I need to use to setup this up properly. And of course what setting to exactly to use.
I have a normal user (sites:users) and the usual http user (wwwrun:www).I'm hosting several sites and I want to be able to upload stuff via ftp, so I'm using the "sites" home (/home/sites) to keep the sites I'm hosting. Giving read permissions to all inside /home/sites makes it accessible and readable to the wwwrun user. Problems come when I need to upload something. The easy way is to give 777 permissions to the folder that's going to receive the file, but I don't feel comfortable at all with that.
What do you recommend? Is there any group configuration that could help me (like adding "sites" to the "www" group)? Or any other configuration at all that might be according the the best practices?
System Information:openSUSE v11.2 32-bitdesktop: KDE 4.x (.3 I think)Background info: Installed openSUSE 11.2 on an old HP laptop this morning. I've been trying to set up my wireless connection since. After 2-ish hours of searchingupport forums, I managed to use network manager to connect to my home wireless network via WEP, I will say now that I've had lots of trouble.
I've finally been able to connect to my network, to a point. The NetworkManager in openSUSE says that the wireless connection is active. I can verify this by saying that on the other conputers in my house (winXP, win7, and Ubuntu v9) I have been able to ping this openSUSE computer and my router recognizes it as part of the network. Here is where the problem arises: I cannot access the internet from the openSUSE machine, with a domain name or by trying to type in an ip address, and I cannot ping other computers on my network with it.
When I insert some homemade DVDs of a friend, I can't view its contents. DVD works fine on windows XP, but not on opensuse. Dolphin gives an error: access denied to /media/071114_1638.I can't do a chown command because dvd is read-only...And when I do an ls -l I get:
