I'm using ubuntu 11.04, I'm having some problem of ownership while sharing folder/files. to share i change the folder share option:1. Share this folder, then followed by 2.allow others to create and delete files in this folder3. guest access.Now if someone in my local network edit any file and save it, it gets locked. if some one copy their file in this folder the permission is marked as "no group" "no owner". and they get unaccessible to me. i tried doing chown <user> <folder> but it says Operation not permitted. Now how i can possibly share my folder on local network so that they can be edited by others without getting locked down , if they copy files i can able to modify them.
Suppose I have a binary program with only execute permission enabled for the current user. How (in general) would I be able to obtain a core dump of the file? I think I have read it somewhere but I want to know if there are more ways of doing it.
i want to set permission type "write" on a file to a particular user in a group of users ( not all users in that group). chown is changing a user to root , but i want to set say permission of "write" only to a user 1 in group staff which contains 10 users 1 , user 2 ...user 10.
Well, this is a problem that keeps on coming, and I never found a solution: Maybe it is just me misunderstanding how it should work, but:
1) do you confirm that, as a member of the group "fuse", I should be able to read the file? 2) of course, I could change the permission of the file, or read it as sudo, but sometimes this is not possible. how to achieve it then?
What are the possible problem when Windows access the file from Ubuntu got Read Only even though have a full permission to read, write and execute the file? Ubuntu to Ubuntu accessing the file there is no problem only Windows got a problem.
Is it possible to allow a group/user to execute a command, where one of the parameters of the command is a group as well? example that does not work as intended:
Code: Cmnd_alias SU=/bin/su -l %group1 This example works sortof, it treats the "%group1" literally. I know I can list out the "/bin/su -l <eachuser>", but as you can imagine that is impractical. In this example, I want people in group2(not shown for brevity sake) to be able to su to someone in group1
i have purchased sun server for my visualization project. Request you to help me finding the io for disk .I have put storage(disks) on different location (File Server) and on server (Application) i have configured 4 virtual machines.
How would i monitor the io for file server from the Application server where i have configured 4 virtual machine. one way to mount the file server share on application server and execute
dd if=/dev/zero of=/share/test.out bs=1024 count=1024 to check the read and write Is there any other way of doing this.

I wanted to save a python program because I am reading byte of python and I went to save in !/usr/bin. When I try to save in this folder I get this error "[Errno 13] Permission denied: 'usr/bin/helloworld.py'.
I have a group (GROUP) with a number of users. I recently added a new user (NEW). NEW is able to read but not write group files, whereas all the other users in the group can read and write to the group files. The permissions for the group files indicate that all members of group should have write permission -rwxrwxr-x
/etc/group indicates that NEW is a member of GROUP ... GROUP:x:501:GROUP,OLD,OLD2,OLD3,OLD4,....,NEW
Don't know if it matters, but both OLD and NEW write to the GROUP files over an internet connection. why NEW can't write to GROUP files? Is there a maximum number of members in a group that I might have exceeded?
Transmission has started giving me errors when I download a new torrent file. It has stopped being able to create the new file (ie touch) to begin the download. Error: Permission denied (/path/to/specific/file/in/new.torrent) Old torrents are still running to the same drive location. No permissions have changed.
I've got a problem with groups on linux (slackware). I'm trying to ssh from one computer into another to do some work, but I'm running into permission issues.
If I do the work locally as a user If I do the work with ssh as root If I do the work with ssh as a user ;(
Both computers are mine. (By locally, I mean physically sitting by that computer logging in the normal way.) When I log in locally as a regular user I'm a member of the following groups: 'users floppy audio video cdrom' But when I ssh into the same computer, being the same user, I'm only a member of the group: 'users'
Q1. What gives? Where/How can I change this?
Q2. Also, where do linux/slackware store the group information? According to /etc/group I'm only member of 'users'. Where does it keep the info that I belong to 'users floppy audio video cdrom'?
I've installed slax6 onto an ext3 partition and setup a users account, i've also just managed to mount some virtualbox shared folders which are working and i can access them fine. The problem is I cannot seem to give limited user accounts access to them. root can access them no problem! but right clicking and changing the permissions do nothing, because once I click apply, reopen the menu, the changes have reverted. I've tried chmod'ing them.. chmod o=rwx /mnt/folder I used 'o' because I can't seem to change the group permission for the folder. The shared folder I am mounting is formatted in NTFS and the other in ext3, I can't change the permissions of either.
How would i write a command that can find all the objects under the etc directory that have group write permission enabled and have not been accessed in the last X days. This is what i got from internet souce but i m not able to modify it according to my distribution. find /etc -perm -0070 -a -mtime +X ! -type l?print Here is the exact statement from link i m referring to.
I have a triple boot system with Ubuntu 11.04, Windows 7 and Windows-XP on it. My disc configuration is something like this... ('cause I think it would be required for you to understand my problem) I have a 250GB hard disk which was originally partitioned with Windows-XP in six partitions C,D,E,F,G and H (All NTFS type) with 'C' drive having Windows-XP on it and 'D' drive having Windows-7 on it.
I installed Ubuntu on the 'H' drive by partitioning it into two halves of approximately 20GB each. One partition is named 'New Volume' as per Windows naming scheme. On the other partition I installed my Ubuntu-11.04 OS. As per my plan I would be using this 'New Volume' for all my Ubuntu related data and software only. I want to install 'Ant' build tool for Java to be usable on my Ubuntu. For this, as described on the Apache Ant user manual I downloaded the 'apache-ant-1.8.2-bin.tar.gz' and extracted it. All this I did in the 'New Volume' drive.
Now as per the 'Ant' manual I needed to change a file's ('/media/New Volume/ubuntu files/software files/apache-ant-1.8.2/bin/ant') permission to executable, which is currently set to '-rw-------' and I want it to be '-rwx------'. I've tried various things such as 'chmod/sudo' and also tried changing the permission with the 'root' user, but so far I've not been able to change the permissions for this file. However, if I copy the 'apache-ant-1.8.2' folder to '/home' directory then I've been able to change the permission for the concerned file.
I was always confused about the way it says that the execute permission for a directory means "able to list it". I just don't get it.Does no exec permission mean "still able to read files from in the directory, but not able to find out what files it contains" or what?
Me and 2 others are working on a website (Bob, Mike, and Joe). We made a group called developers and each of us are in the developers group. The Apache server runs as www-data. When we upload files, the file owner is the users name and the group is "developers".
/etc/group has the following
Code: www-data:x:33: bob:x:1000: mike:x:1001:
I have always just set everything to 775 and just called it good. Well I don't want to wake up to a Russian political message plastered all over the site. It's time I do things properly.
I have a file the owner is root:root ( mode is 644 ), I want to release read & write permission to a non root user ( eg. admin_usr ), I tried to create a specific group ( eg. ADM ) and release it to root user and admin_usr ( by adding this users to ADM in /etc/group ) , but it is not work, if preserve the file mode to 644 , is it ok? how to do it if I want to have read & write permission in my case ?
started setting up my 3rd ubuntu server under the OS of Ubuntu Linux 9.04 64 bit. I have configured the server to allow root access and am using this to execute this file. As you can see from the screenshot of PuTTy, the file exists but is refusing to load up. I am also able to nano the file. I have tried moving the file to /root/ and still had no luck.
How can I give execute permission to chmod command from run level 3.Because in GUI mode we have the execute option in the properties of file. E.g. I gave following command chmod -x chomod After that I want to give the execute permission (x) to chmod command again but how from command prompt?
