Ubuntu :: Enabling Read / Write Privileges On Office Documents?
Nov 14, 2010
I have a pc with ubuntu 10.04 installed, and a fold shared on my user directory. Which permissions that I have to edit, so every time I create or edit a document (any type: openoffice,...), that document can have read and write privileges on another computer in my home network so I can work on it?
I am developing a program that uses libusb-1.0 on a FC14 x64 system. I solved the compile and link issues, but I now have a problem with user privileges when I try to get device handles. The problem appears to be in the mounting of the usbfs. Is the an accepted fix to giving users read/write privileges for all usb devices?
i have a windows xp machine with filesharing enabled and the shares set up and ready to go i have a laptop on which i did a fresh install of fedora 15 with samba and all the necessary packages to make the fedora machine a samba client to the windows machine.
my problem is that when i go into nautilus and click on the network tab it shows nothing not one single computer...the fedora machine doesnt even show up.....i have done all the tests i can think of and confirmed that the smb service is running, the nmb service is running, samba is allowed thru the firewall and all the computers are in the same workgroup..yet neither one can see each other even more frustrating is when i go to mount a windows share thru the terminal it shows a successful mount (as i type in the command hit enter and recieve no errors) BUT when i go into the mount directory and open the new directory i made for the samba share it shows nothing there not even when i go into the windows machine and add a file to the shared folder...PLUS for some strange reason the /mnt directory already had two empty files called "home" and "boot" already in it i have no clue what thats about but ok, then on the windows side i go into "network places" and click on "show workgroup computers" and the windows machine will show up but not the fedora machine.
these are the commands i have used to install and get samba working- "yum install samba system-config-samba samba-client cifs-utils" "service smb start" anyway until i can figure this out i have decided to start from scratch and erase samba from the machine completely and i am hoping that maybe some one can read all this and come up with some ideas...maybe there is just something i forgot when i was setting this up yesterday its possible i just went to fast and skipped a step again all i want is the fedora 15 machine to just be a samba client with read/write priviledeges
Unless your distro has taken care of it Centos 5.5, you'll need to create a user with a password and read/write privileges for program database. You can do this using the MySQL command line client if you are familiar with it. Well I am not familiar with it, so I wam wondering how to do it. As well when I run
mysql - p program </usr/share/program/mysql.sql>
It asks for a password. how do i find out this password.
I am facing a severe problem on many Desktop PC's, whenever an employee is working in Gnome-Open-Office.org document (i.e. Wordprocessor, SpreadSheet, or any other Gnome-office application) and due to power outage after restarting, the previously open document either does not open or it shows a recovery dialogue after clicking on recovery button or clicking on cancel in either case document contain nothing (empty). The file size of the document is either 0kb or within few Kbs range.
Any one have any idea about it ? what to do ?? or any other alternative which is already tested in such environment (i.e. electricity failure )? or any options to be turned on/changed?
When I open a Word 2007 document using Open Office 3.1, the document is blank. I know OO 3.1 supports Word 2007 format. Any ideas why my document is blank in OO but when I open it in Word 2007 the text is there.
Since upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04, my Open Office documents take ages to open. Also, the system does not open pdf documents. Both these problems arose immediately after the upgrade. How do I go about sorting these bugs out.
I have installed Jaunty on my laptop. I have a dual boot with Windows 7 and I've set up access to my windows partition. I can read and write to the music and photos directories but I can't write anything to My Documents in the windows file system. I have tried in Gnome and from a terminal and checked that I have write permissions set correctly.
For example in the My Documents directory:
Code: $ mkdir test mkdir: cannot create directory `test': Operation not supported
I get the same message if I try to rename My Documents using either mv in the terminal or the Rename option in gnome.
I'm using ubuntu and I'd like to write latex documents. In windows, I was using miktex and texniccenter, but I think these softwares don't work on linux. What are the best softwares in linux to write latex documents, and how to install them ?
When I start a screen session over SSH, I can edit and save files from within the screen session before I log out of the SSH session. But after I log out and log back in, I find that the screen session has lost write privileges, so that I can no longer edit or create any files, even within my home directory. How do I prevent this from happening?
My friend have a pc with only Windows. She does not want to format it for Ubuntu but wants to have a temporal partition (without deleting the original-rented Windows machine) for Ubuntu. How can incorporate the Ubuntu (no demo) without altering beyond her pc?

Third, how can be deleted the Ubuntu from her machine when she be able to return the pc to thye dealer?
I am using CentOS 5.5 and I created few users (useradd john etc.) and now I want to assign privileges to this user on some directories and files in those directories. For example I want to give read privileges to directory "/documents" and all of files under that directory.
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.
I loaded something on open office, but i can't read some of the things on it because i'm guessing i don't have a certain font or a certain symbol installed? what i see instead are some squares with question marks in them.
I have installed open office 2.3 on my fedora system . I have also installed skim , m17 , fonts , im-chooser packages to support writing in my local indian language ( kannada is supported ) . But still i am not able to write in my local langauge
I can not edit my own .ppt file from samba share. Current desktop OS is windows 7. Samba server having RHEL 5 with following samba packages installed.
Code: libsmbclient0-3.5.6-43.el5 pam_smb-1.1.7-7.2.1 pam_smb-1.1.7-7.2.1 I can able to edit and save the file if I copy this file from samba to local system. But from Samba share it open in read only mode.
I did install QLandkartGT and the plugin to use Garmin with it and it looks like it work, but when I do press "Live Log" I get the error message; "Device Link Error. Failed to request real time position. Realtime thread failed. Failed to configure USB: could not set config 1: Operating not permitted".
I also get a similar error when trying to download tracks; "Failed to download tracks. Failed to configure USB: could not set config 1: Operation not premitted".
My guess is that Ubuntu do not allow programs to use the USB port, so my question is how I do allow this program (or all) to use the USB ports.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my system, and I put in a really old game CD for my really old computer. I cannot run the setup program , however because "it is not executable". I can't change this , because it is read-onlybut I can't chane this either. As I'm new to this, I was wondering .
I have a netbook with Ubuntu 10.10 installed in it,and a Pc with also ubuntu 10.10 in it , but x86_64.
I want to copy some iso files and data from my user home directory on the netbook , to the user home directory of the other pc , using a 8 GB usb formated in ext3 with gparted in my pc.
One iso is a windows 7 one to burn then with K3b , as i need to have windows installed in that box. Also of another iso that i have to burn too (windows 7 recovery disk) , and 3 anti-virus trials for windows.
As the usb is owned by the root (or more properly the mounting point,no?), and i can't use my user to copy data to it i usually do :
Usually , what i use is "sudo nautilus" then go to the place where is the data , copy it , and paste it then in the usb. Then in the other pc i do a chgrp and chown to the iso or file.
But , perhaps this is not the better approach. I have investigated a bit , and i think that i have found a better way , but i have some dudes.
The method is change the owner,group and permissions of the mounting point:
Code: cd /media ls umount /dev/sdb1 sudo mkdir usb
If i do this steps in both computers, with each user,in the netbook i can copy the iso to the usb (as fox can write to the mount point of the usb ), but can the other user in the pc 'mulder' read the iso , so be copied to /home/mulder, and then be able to burn it in k3b with success ?
I suppose that having 766 , it should be able to read it , but would have the own of the file ?
How important is not to only be able to read it , but also own it ?
I suppose if the user ID is the same , wouldn't be any problem ,as each ubuntu would supose that the file is owned by their user.
Perhaps the user name change,but if the ID is the same , the user is the same for ubuntu , not any different, no ?
sudden of all all USB drives and sticks I put into a PC will not mount with read/write permissions (they did before). I can still copy to them, but only when I am root. I am on Maverick I've noticed though that if I run disk utility, then UNMOUNT the partition, Check File System, Mount the partition back, I get read/write access..
Recently i acquired an electroencephalograph (EEG) and started to experiment with it, and i need some way to write or send a couple of Hex numbers to the EEG so it will start working, and then to save the data on text file, or at the very least see the output on the terminal using C or C++, i found some programs around the forums but none seem to work properly and more often than not, The EEG is recognized as /dev/ttyUSB0 has a baud rate of 921600.
I can access my windows my documentsmusic by mounting my windows drive and browsing to it. I can then playwatch my movies and pics in Ubuntu.But what I really want to be able to do is re-map the Ubunbu docs folder like so:
Ubuntu Pics = Windows My Documents pics. Ubuntu Videos = Windows My Documents Videos.
I'm not very unix savy so I've been using Ubuntu tweak PersonalDefault Folder Locations setting and browsing to my Windows folders. But it doesn't work.I have managed to make a desktop 'short cut' and that works but I'd rather set the system wide default document folders.
I would like to be able to read and write on hd formatted as Hfs+ not journaled...I know it is possible, but still I can't since ubuntu mount them with a different user: 99.If I add my user to the group 99 will be fine? or exist another way to write on such file system?if use hfs+ not journaled it will be less safe for the files?
