Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Changing Permission To 755 (Default)
Jun 21, 2010
I am using Xampp on ubuntu 10.04 and I have set my document root to a folder in my home directory for ease of use with netbeans. There are several times where I have to manually go and change the permission to 755. If you just place a file in the directory it does not default to 755, seems odd since the document root folder is in my home directory. Chmod works fine but I was wondering is their a way to make all files or folders added to my document root to default to 755?
I was using ubuntu 10.04 till yesterday.. and due to hdd crash i have changed my hdd.
while looking for my installation disc, my wall-mate gives me this Ubuntu Studio dvd and instead of downloading a new one, i have installed the studio. at the first sight ... i am being a fond of studio version .. its really cool.
now, i am quite habituated with default appearance of ubuntu, i found studio appearance is quite unusual (for me, menu layouts, panel everything).
I would like to know how do i change this default appearance like ubuntu default 10.04 appearance. I am attaching a screen-shoot of my friends desktop, he upgraded his ubuntu thru apptitude update.
I have a strange problem after downloading a movie file. I noticed that I don't have permission to delete or change anything on this folder and files within it. I am attaching a snapshot image of the folder. please someone help me to delete this from my computer.
I just setup a FireWire audio interface. Everything works fine, except for I need rw-rw-rw- permissions on /dev/fw0. I can always sudo chmod 666 /dev/fw0 just before setting the thing up, but then it will be gone on the next rebooting.The solution to modify /etc/udev/rules.d/020-permissions.rules (which is for Ubuntu Breezy) doesn't go well for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick because there is no /etc/udev/rules.d directory.
Is it possible to change the general permission denied error. I have some rather young users on this system that think they can "hack the gibson" and I would love to change the general error message to something a little more rude/funnyex:# cd restricted area -sh: cd: restricted area: Permission deniedI am curious if its possible to change the error message in general?ex:# cd restricted area-sh: cd: restricted area: (funny/rude message goes here)Quick info:This is a Gentoo 2008.0 system, I would also love to do this on my slacware and OpenBSD boxes as well just for kicks.
I couldn't able to change file permission of files residing under /media/* Under /media all the NTFS partitions are mounted manually (gnome GUI) using root password. File properties of file under those NTFS partition shows SELinux context is "fusefs_t". I guess this is prevention from changing permission of file. How can I over come this?
I'm trying to install Amanda 3.2 on Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) using Ubuntu 10.04 deb package. The installation was successful using the dpkg command. The problem crops up when configuring such amanda. When creating a user amandabackup using passwd amandabackup and then enter in it through su - amandabackup a permission denied problem comes up. When enter amserverconfig Dailyset 1 etc etc the server response with : amservingconfig: critical (fatal): Cannot create debug file "/var/log/amanda/server/amserverconfig.2010120307947.debug": Permission denied and continues The permissions are set to rw 1 amandabackup backup. I can't understand why it's telling me permission denied each time.
I would like to change the dialogue that says "permission denied" when something has to be done as root or that user does not have permission to do something. Is this at all possible? (Also, not really sure which category this should be in, that's why it's here)
I have a Toshiba NB 205 Netbook. It is currently dual boot with Win 7 and UNR (9.10). The default OS is Win 7. I would like to leave the machine as dual boot, but make UNR the default boot OS, so that I don't have to babysit the machine and choose UNR every time I reboot the machine. BTW, I am delighted with UNR! What a great OS. Really like how it plays so nicely with Firefox. And much faster than Win 7.
I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I have a situation to where I need to use synaptic package instead of Ubuntu Software Center. How do I change the default *deb package manager from "Ubuntu Software Center" to "Synaptic Package Manager".
I have headphones connected via usb and every time I restart computer or disconnect them, my sound output is switched to laptop speakers. Is there a way to make so that every time the headphones are detected, they would be used automatically?
I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I have a situation to where I need to use synaptic package instead of Ubuntu Software Center. How do I change the default *deb package manager from "Ubuntu Software Center" to "Synaptic Package Manager". I have users that are not to cli savvy so I need them to be able to do this in the GUI. I have clients that are having trouble installing a package that hangs because of the installation agreement(terminal window) that has to be answered but because the terminal window is not being displayed, it cannot be viewed it just hangs so I want them to use synaptic manager.
recently I have been trying to create the perfect custom ubuntu .iso to write to a usb drive so i could carry around a live cd version of my current desktop operating system. I have 2 problems...
1: using various tools like Remastersys, Ubuntu Customization Kit, and Ubuntu's own LiveCDCustomization tutorial I have managed to install most of the packages that I want.... Truecrypt is not in the repos and i would very much like it on my custom live cd. while in chroot i tried using wget to download it then extract and install it, but i got a 404 error so it did not seem to be connecting to the place to download it. is there a workaround to getting truecrypt to install into my extracted squashfs? would it be possible to download the packages to my desktop then copy them over to my chroot squashfs to be installed?
2: I have not been able to customize the default appearance of the desktop environment like the background, icons,colors, window border, panels, applets, and so on.... Ubuntu's tutorial states that I need to edit .xmls in /etc/gconf but i do not understand how to edit those to get what I want. LiveCD creates a new user with default settings everytime it is started so its a matter of editing the files that control the settings of a new user.
First of all not sure if this is the correct forum but anyway.Ok well i installed this theme because i liked the look of windows 7 (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.p...content=113264).So i ran the GUIUninstall.sh and it seemed to work but the login screen still has the theme i was wondering how i could change it back to the defualt one.
I'm not sure exactly what happened, but starting a few hours ago, every time i open firefox,the settings have all reverted to the default. I change them back to what i prefer, then when i open it again they are back to the default.
am running 10.10 64bit and I am wanting to change a few wayssome programs start up on boot, they are as follows:1. make NetworkManager not load onboot and require me to manually start it in the command line2. make bluetooth not start on boot and allow to manually start it from the command line3. make networking not boot on startand start manually from command line I have been trying to search on google but most of thereads I find are about removing things completely and the few that werent did not work for what I want to do.
I'm running various ubuntu guests but I had a question about Lubuntu. How or where do I change the default behaviour when I dbl-click the title bar in LXDE? Right now it maximizes/minimizes the window. I would prefer it roll up/down.
I am currently doing a tri-boot (using refit) with Linux, Windows, and OS X. I was wondering if it was possible to change up the boot loader for Linux. I basically wanted grub to not pop-up and just boot the default version of Ubuntu. Also the boot loader comes up with the options to boot Windows and OS X and I was wondering if it would be possible to remove those from the list as well?
