Ubuntu :: Editing Root Owned Folders With A User Program?

Apr 10, 2011

I'm using the IDE Netbeans (text editor) on my /home/michael Ubuntu account. I'm trying to open a file with Netbeans that's owned by root, I can't do this as I expected. So is there a way to run NetBeans as root, or is there a way to give netbeans permission to open/save files owned by root

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Shares For Non-user Owned Folders?

Mar 11, 2010

I've setup a Moodle server on 9.10 server, and have been able to share user folders back to the windoze machines on the home net. What I'd like to do is share the Moodle main folder (and descendents) likewise. The problem is that it's owned by root. For ther user folders, as long as the owning user was logged in they were able to mark the folder as shared and everything worked very smoothly. When I try to mark the moodle folder as shared, no suprise I get a permission error. Is there a way of doing a "sudo su" from the GUI desktop to allow this to happen? Or do I have to set up the share from a command line (after having done a sudo su)? Can anyone give me the magic commands needed to do such?

Ubuntu Servers :: Jailkit Msg: Directory Not Owned By User But Directory IS Owned By User

Apr 9, 2011

I'm trying to jail a sftp user. All I want is for my daughter-in-law to be able to download pictures of my grandson on his step-uncle's motorcycle. But I don't want her browsing around. She's not a techie, but she's smart enough to catch on how WinSCP is looking at my files. I've set up the jail using jk_init, adding ssh, sftp, bash, netutils, basicshell, jk_lsh.

The physical root of the jail is owned by root, as are all the binaries loaded by the jk_init. The user's home directory is owned recursively by the user and is writable only by the owner. The passwd and group files are in the jailed /etc and populated by the user's lines. Shell is bash, and bash is there too. The error message must be coming from some other problem that's not notifying, but what?

OpenSUSE Network :: Root User Has Access To Remote Folders/files Of Any User?

Jan 21, 2010

Prelude: OpenSUSE 11.2 (2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop), installed Novell client 2.0 SP2 (novell-client-2.0-sp2-sle11-i586.iso).

I found that if any usual user is logged into a NDS-tree, then _local_ root has full access to user's network shares, including the user's home directory located on remote Netware-server. Is it by design or
have I missed something? Nevertheless in windows local admin has no access to network resources mounted of any other user. If you runas shell (as admin) then admin in principle can't "see" network shares which were mounted (connected) by other users - they are accessible ("visible") per session.

Feb 10, 2011

what if the root user by mistakenly stops/starts any service and tried to remove those traces from the log files and save those log files. Then how can we ensure that our log file is trusted. Is there any way where even the root(superuser) also cant edit/modify the contents of the /var/log/* files.

Server :: ProFTPD Master/Root User Can't Get Into All Folders

Mar 2, 2010

So, I wanted a master ftp user that could access all the folders for all the users. I did this by creating a second root user. I'm aware of all the security considerations, and if there's a better way to do this than creating a root user I'd really like to know it. That said, my issue is that my new root user is still unable in FTP to access folders owned by other users that aren't world readable. Note that this is ONLY when logging in via ftp. If I login through SSH I can access all folders without problem and without the need to sudo. So this is a true root user. Does anyone have an idea how I can fix the proftpd configuration to allow my root user access to ALL folders no matter the owner?

General :: Installing As Non-root In A Root Owned Directory

Mar 8, 2011

I have a machine which has only /opt with some decent amount of space where I can install a software. /opt belongs to root:root. The software I want to install cannot be installed as root user.

So lets say I create a directory called /opt/install1 and then chown -R install1 to belong to user1. And now I install the software under /opt/install1 with user as user1.

Is this a best practice violation? There could potentially be just /opt/install1 belong to user1 and in future everything else created under /opt belonging to root..

Debian :: Default Ownership Of Folders And Files - Should Own By A User Without Root Permissions

Feb 12, 2011

Being new to Linux, i've just about got used to the Debian setup procedure now, but had a quick question on the default ownership of files and folders. On my default Debian installation, almost all the folders and files are owned by root:root. Is this the correct advised configuration or should the folders and files be owned by a user without root permissions - eg user:user?

Ubuntu :: Run A Program As Super User (root)?

I have been trying to run the program unrevoked so that I can flash and root my phone. I want to do this on Linux, but this requires me to run the program as root and I don't know how to do this. I looked it up online and it told me to simply type sudo reflash or gksudo reflash and I tried both, sudo says it can't find the program and gksudo does something then nothing appears to happen.

Ubuntu :: How To Edit File Owned By Root

May 31, 2010

I am trying to edit limits.conf, changed file permissions:
sudo chmod limits.conf -rwxrwxrwx

But got this message:
"Could not save the file /etc/security/limits.conf. You are trying to save the file on a read-only disk. Please check´╗┐ that you typed the location correctly and try again."

I followed these instructions:
"copy - paste this code into terminal
gedit $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root
copy-paste this text into that file and push 'save'
for uri in $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_URIS; do
gnome-sudo "gnome-open $uri" &
done

now copy-paste this code into terminal
chmod +x $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root

Now you can right click on the file you want to edit, select 'scripts' and say 'open as root' to let you modify it". [URL] the right click worked but the file didn't open.

Ubuntu :: Delete A Folder Owned By Root?

Jul 4, 2011

I copied a folder from /media/memory_stick into a folder /opt/openerp/server/bin/addons.
Trying to open the copied folder I discovered that it is impossible because it is owned by root.I should like to delete the copied folder.To avoid this ownership I copied the folder in /home/cristian/Downloads and I will copy it with:sudo cp -R folder_name /opt/openerp/server/bin/addonsMaybe in this way the folder will be not more owned by root.I tried already but because in the destination folder already exist one owned by root nothing is happening.

Ubuntu :: OS Views All USB Drives As Owned By 'root'

Oct 25, 2010

OS views all USB drives as owned by 'root'. My internal 40 Gig drive files appear properly owned by 'glene77is'.My primary backup is a 320 Gig with all files now owned by 'root'.Using the filemanager "Nautilus", all USB external devices must be accessed as 'usb0', 'usb1','usb2', etc.The device names such as 'Alpha', 'Beta','Cappa' are not usably recognized in the menu options.Nautilus shows their names and the usb# as menu options for browing a device directory. Nautilus will open only the usb# menu option. Then sees all files as owned by 'root'.

Applications :: Program Works As Root But Fails As User

Jan 21, 2010

I can't get a program (wbar) to run directly from my user account, it fails saying "Image not found -> maybe using a relative path?". But if I run su -c "wbar", it shows up and manages to load the image. I think it has something to do with ImLib2 or whatever loads the image. I checked permissions on libImlib2.so.1 and it's world-readable and executable. Can libImlib2.a be causing this problem, set to 644? What else should I be checking?

OpenSUSE :: Application Shortcut Owned By Root?

Jun 27, 2010

I tried to create a shortcut to an app I wanted in the plasma dashboard. When I did so, I found that it was owned by root! When I looked at the permissions of the other app icons, they were owned by me, the user.Why did plasma make my newly created app launcher owned by root?I'm so used to the way KDE 3 worked. It was so much simpler. I could click anywhere on that desktop to add shortcuts and they were owned by me, not root. I don't understand why they changed this.

Ubuntu :: When Mounting CIFS Share, App Files Are Owned By Root?

Jul 26, 2011

I'm trying to mount some CIFS shares (NetApp) to my Ubuntu 11.04 desktop (64-bit).I am mounting it as a domain user with admin rights and full control over the share.ter mounting it as root, all the files are owned by root and I can't modify them from my non-root user.Here is how I am mounting the share:

mount -t cifs -o domain=example,username=example-user,password=mypassword //myfiler.example.com/myshare$/mydir /mnt/myshare/

This share is a qtree under a volume with security type set to NTFS. (Although I have also tried security type = Mixed) We don't configure user-level access to shares on the filer, we create directories and lay down permissions on those from the Windows side. (Although I have tried explicitly adding my domain user to the access list for the share)

General :: Why Is My Sudo Generated File Owned By Root?

Jul 9, 2010

When I run '# sudo touch newfile' my expectation was that the file would be owned by me, not by root, as my understanding of sudo is that it is giving me, the user, root priviledges but does not actually switch the user.Do I have a fundamental misunderstanding of what sudo is about?

Ubuntu Installation :: Files Owned By User 1000 - No Access

May 25, 2010

Running 9.10 now, I'd like to do a clean install of 10.04 on my dual-boot (with XP) Compaq notebook. As a test, I burned an ISO image onto a 1-GB stick and booted to 10.04 from it. It works just fine, except that the directories in the Documents folder on my hard drive are owned by "user 1000", and "he" grants me access to only about half of them.

Is this problem likely to persist if I actually install 10.04 rather than just running it from the stick? If so, what can I do about it? Second question: am I correct in understanding that if I still need to access my Ubuntu partition from XP, I'd better stick with ext3 for this install rather than going to ext4?

I recently made the migration from mbox to maildir.I use postfix, spamassassin, dovecot for imap and procmail for delivery.I made the changes for Maildir to postfix main.cf, dovecot's dovecot.conf and procmail's procmailrc.All good, working well.Just noticed though, that mail marked as spam and filtered by procmail to be put in the users ~/Maildir/.spam/new folder are owned by root. Not allowing the users to even see it (600 perms)

So postfix sends all mail to Procmail:
mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
But not all mail is effected, only mail picked up by this receipe in the /etc/procmailrc:
