Ubuntu :: Edit Options To Force Mounting With Write Permission To User?

Dec 29, 2010

I am digging the forum through and cannot find the answer. My problem is, the usb hard drive when plugged in get automatically mounted what is great. Unfortunately I get only read permissions, while need write too.There are no any entries in fstab, so I do not know what does handle automounting and how to edit options to force mounting with write permission to user (root obviously can write). Are they hald options or any other app does this? Where to edit them? The drive is not permanently ON, just switch it when need, so it has to work every time I put it on.

Ubuntu :: No Write Permission Even Though User Is Member Of Folder Group?

Oct 29, 2010

I'm having an odd problem (although I'm probably missing something obvious to a non-semi-newbie):I have a directory used for samba shares which is owned by user fred, a system user which the windows clients on my network authenticate with to access the shares. I, roger, want to access the directories without having to put my 'sudo boots' on every time, so I made the directory group users and added roger to that group, and changed the file/folder modes from 0755 to 0775.However I still do not have write permissions inside the directory; I still seem to be considered 'other' and hence only have read and execute.

Ubuntu :: Edit GRUB Boot Options

Jul 1, 2011

I recently switched my laptop from Ubuntu 11.04 to 10.04.2, and during the process, I used GPARTED to partition the drive so that I could have both versions installed simultaneously while I transferred files and settings and such. A few days ago, I removed the 11.04 partition, formatted and added that disk space to 10.04's /home partition. However, when I boot up, GRUB still gives me the option of loading into the newer 11.04 partition with the newer kernels. How do I remove those options from the GRUB menu? I checked the Ubuntu GRUB help pages, but didn't feel confident that I could do edits without messing up the 10.04 boot settings.

Ubuntu Servers :: Do Symbolic Links Force Drive Mounting?

May 30, 2010

I have a 8.04 LTS server that i have installed a new 1TB drive. The server is running great but I am bit confused regarding the ln -s command and drive mounting. I have backuppc installed on the server and I am running out of storage space. To reolve this I moved the cpool and pool directories to the 1 TB drive and type from within the /var/lib/backuppc directory ln -s cpool /store/1TB/cpool this created the symbolic link to the new drive and everything works fine. I then rebooted the server and everything is runing fine but the drive does not show up in the df -h command, however the directories appear to be mounted fine.

I thought the drive would not be mounted automatically until it was defined in the fstab. Does the ln -s command force the system to automatically mount the directories but not the volume? This behaviour has caused me to delete my backup data becuase I was sure the disk was not mounted but is was!

Debian :: Edit Link Target / Edit The Link Target To Force Ip String At End?

Jun 16, 2011

What I am trying to do is edit the link target to force ip=xxxx.xxx.xxx string at end. I have a software program which access 4 different servers running the software but with different configs. In xp I can copy links and modify as above to correctly force the program to the various servers.

I have read the various how tos on hard vs sym links which I get. Playing around with hardlinks and sysmlinks (the examples I find) does not seem to be what I need. Feel like this is pretty basic stuff but I am a bit stumped.

General :: Edit Right Click Menu Options?

Feb 9, 2010

to be able to copy a file, then right click my mouse and select paste as and save the file with a different file name. It will save me from making a duplicate and then renaming it, or defaulting to command line (which I live in anyways). Or how about copying some text and then just right clicking in a file manager and pasting the text as a file. It would save me the time to open an editor and pasting it and then saving it. I wouldn't think it would be too hard to grab the latest clipboard entry and redirect it to a file. Scripting the functions shouldn't be hard at all. I would think the hardest part would be to implement the right click menu function across different X environments. For example I use KDE 3.5. I don't even know how to edit the right click menu options (Google should fix that). I could setup the changes for my system, but it would only work on KDE 3.5 then. I would have to figure out how to do it for Gnome, Xfce, iceWM, Englightenment, etc. Should this be a standard feature given by the OS?

Ubuntu :: F-Spot Missing Metadata And Edit Options On Sidepane

Jun 4, 2011

I think the title says it all. I want a quick way to crop images whilst retaining exif data (rules out shotwell) so when I upgraded lucid to natty (via MM) I kept f-spot. However when I click the 'edit image' button in eye of gnome f-spot still opens but it has no 'edit' or 'metadata' options in the sidepane so I can't do a quick crop anymore. Why they are missing or how to put them back?

Ubuntu :: Get Write Permission To A Directory?

I tried to read the File Permissions page on the wiki and my eyes glazed over after about three sentences. I've got a folder called /var/www/pics that I just want to be able to save image files to. My only other choice as I understand it is to save them to my home folder, then use a "sudo mv" command to copy files to that directory. How do I give my account permissions to save a file in that directory?

Ubuntu :: Permission To Write INSIDE A Directory?

Mar 9, 2010

How do I use "chmod" command so that it allows me to write a file inside a certain directory ? This directory has permissions in the formdrwxr-xr-xOnce I try to write a file there, it says "Permission denied" ! Don't advise to use "sudo", since the file is created by some executable program compiled from a source code. If I was creating the file myself, I wouldn't have gone to this forum.

Ubuntu :: No Write Permission On Pendrive After Automount

Aug 14, 2011

cat /etc/fstab
ps -A
ls -al /media/

My problem:
When plugging in a pen drive it will be automounted, but only root (who owns it) has write access to it. Other users only have write access. (Neither my user, nor an unmodified test user)

My aim:
I want to be able to write on my pendrive without any additional manual work after plugging it in (iirc that is default on a standard ubuntu install).

Possible causes:
I once had a time where I wanted everthing to be minimal. Might be, that I removed something in connection with my problem. I reinstalled everything that came to my mind and could be connected to that problem w/o success. I merely removed stuff than editing stuff (never touched /etc/fstab or /etc/udev/rules.d/*). S
So I think I am missing some kind of service, that manages my (user?) permissions or so.

I use:
Ubuntu 10.04 (initially a kubuntu but I remove nearly everything Qt/KDE stuff) fluxbox (but most gnome services are active).

I tried/checked:
check my automount setting[1] - did not change the behaviour
media_automount - is checked
media_automount_open - is checked
usbmount - is installedntfs-config - did not help (even after reboot)
manual mount[2] - worked, but i don't want to do that everytime I plug in a pendrive
gksudo users-admin (made sure that amongs others the following entries are checked)
Access external storage devices automatically
Administer the system
Mount user-space filesystems (FUSE)

I didn't try:
chmod - seems to be only used for ext* fs
edit /etc/fstab - seems not to be supposed for such variable things like pendrives
- changing file systems for same pendrive
- different number of pen drives
- every pendrive needs its own fstab entry
udev rules - I was told to write some, but I am reluctant because- I never did that before (so I also didn't mess them up)

Additional info:
benedict@box:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).....

Ubuntu :: Permission To Upload / Delete / Edit All Files In / Home / Www / For Multiple Users?

This is where the guide I was following told me to put them. I also don't have a user named www.How can I give write permission to upload, delete, and edit all the files in /home/www/ for multiple users? They can connect to the ftp server and see the file, just not change them.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting Samba Shared - Permission Denied

Dec 10, 2010

I have a shared directory on another machine but I can't get it to mount as a samba share. The permission denied doesn't say where/which permission is denied. Is it on the remote on on the local machine? The remote has sharing enabled for the shareddocs directory and after I have mkdir'ed the local mount point I open it's permissions too. The verbose response from mount.cfis looks like this:

mount.cifs kernel mount options: unc=//,domain=WORKGROUP,ver=1,rw ,username=clive,,,,,,,,,,,ip=,pass=** ******
mount error(13): Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs( manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

The man page does not have a list of error codes.

Server :: Samba Share Mounting Permission ?

Feb 2, 2010

I have created a samba share and mounted the share with /etc/fstab on another machine. This share is supposed to be a fully public share i.e. i have different share where different permissions are set but on this particular share i intend to have full read write and execute rights to all the users on my mounting machine.

The problem is that I get only owner and group rights for write on directories that i create due to which all my users can create files in my mount directory but when they create a folder they cannot create any file inside that folder.

Ubuntu :: Edit File Permissions - Read / Write Access

May 6, 2010

I have apache2 running on my computer. I want to change the permissions for /var/www/ so that I can edit the files without a problem. Right now I can use the gksudo command, but I'd like to be able to have all the files available when using an IDE like eclipse.
I've read in several places that
chmod 755 /var/www
will do, but if I'm not mistaken that would give read/write access to anyone. I'm not in a production environment, so I'm not too worried about security, but I'd like to give anyone else as less permissions as possible. Would this be possible?
