I have a question that i want to make a normal user to execute the commands which the root user is able to execute, say if i have a user named siru and when i logged in using siru i cannot run commands like tracert,nmap@loccalhost and all but i can run when i have logged into root account so my question is how to make siru to run the command tracert,nmap@localhost.I have even edited the .bash_profile of siru's home directory from
# .bash_profile # Get the aliases and functions if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
Recently I installed Ubuntu using WUBI. During installation it asked for a user name and password which I filled in. That user name and password are the same that I now use to log into ubuntu. But now I am unable to log into super user using the terminal. When I try to log in to the super user account it says that the password is wrong. During the whole installation process only once did wubi ask me to enter password and I am using the same password. My windows user name and password are the same as what I entered during installation.
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.
How is the super user determined for the dialog box that pops up when trying to perform administrative tasks, "An application is attempting to perform an action that requires privileges. Authentication as the super user is required to perform this action."? Does it always ask for the password of the default user created during the OS install, or should it prompt for the current user's password if that person is an administrator?I use likewise-open for windows domain authentication, so I typically log in as a windows user that likewise-open has added to the list of users on this system. I have given this user sudo access and added the user to all the same groups as the default user, yet whenever I perform an administrative task in gnome I am prompted for the password of the default user. Is this normal? It seems like the behavior would be to ask for the current user's password if that user is an administrator, and if so what determines that the current user is an administrator?
I have a very stupid case, I have to use a domain user to install one software in RHL4.8, but this software need a super-user permission but not root. So I need a domain user who has super-user permission. Not use su, sudo. If I use su or sudo ,the software will be installed under root. The requirement is the software must be installed under a domain user. How can I do?
After updating my system yesterday my laptop will no longer connect to my wifi connection, in fact the network manager doesn't appear on the screen. I cant access super user even with the correct password. Some programs fail to load e.g. hardware drivers.I'm online now using my ethernet cable. I cant update grub due to errors in etc/grub.d/README.I'm logged in as root now instead of my own user account.
i trying to create file in /usr/local from below command"sudo df | grep /dev > dev_string.txt"First it asked for sudo password. I enterd sudo password. but I was not able to create the file dev_string.txt .Next time onwards it not asking sudo password also.the below execution flow
After a week of working with Debian, I decided to install the KDE3 version straight from an NetInstall CD. This fixed some issues for me as well as made networking and folder sharring a snap! But now its time to add all the extra packages I need.
Here's the problem: Using any kind of Package Manager yields the same results: E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (var/lib/dpkg/), in another process using it? RESULT=100
I've tried apt-get from root command line and the KPackage Manager that comes with KDE3 with same results. I have only one user that was created during Debian install. I'm having some other problems, from what I've seen on the net, they all seem to point to not having proper Super User access (I'm guessing here). What could cause this error? AND/OR How do I make sure I have top level access to the configure the system? (I tried logging in as "root", but the login errored out saying that this was not allowed).
I have a peculiar problem, that I haven't been able to find any other posts mentioning. Firefox is getting confused over my plugins. about:plugins show an empty list but the plugins tab of the Add-On Manager show them all and says they are enabled.It was working a week ago without any issues whatsoever. Probably an update broke something. Any ideas, anyone? Or people with the same problem?Plugins are Shockwave Flash, Sun Java, VLC media player and others.Firefox 3.6.8Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx
how to use the <Super>ButtonX (<Super>Button1 for example for the enabled Compiz Screenshot plugin)? I also notice there is configurable buttons 1 throught 20 under the various options. At first I thought the ButtonX was a mouse button. Maybe it is with some anticipation of there being eventually being a possible 20 buttons on the mouse. I know the Super key is the Key with the Windows logo on it. But I don't know what to do to get the needed Super Key / Button combination. After having enabled Compiz's Screenshot plugin by its default, I don't get an image after hitting any of the Super key and mouse button combinations. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.
I am trying to be a super user in terminal but I can't. I am sure that I type the correct password, I check also the caps lock button and the language. Also I can't go to the yast. note that the root password is exactly the same as user password
Code: nobani@linux-m9c6:~> su Password: Permissions on the password database may be too restrictive. su: incorrect password nobani@linux-m9c6:~> I am using KDE 4.3.5 on openSUSE11.2
I have a program(that is written by me) which need super user permission to execute it. But I need to let the normal users to execute it without using 'sudo ./executable' and just './executable'. how i can set the program to execute by the normal users without using 'sudo' or password prompting.
Is it possible to run Windows Firefox plugins/addons under Wine while the browser itself is the native Linux Firefox? For example; I am considering taking the introduction to Linux Open University course, but the course requirements state the need to use Shockwave Player. Obviously Shockwave Player is not available for Linux but it is (allegedly) possible to run both the Windows version of Firefox and Shockwave Player under Wine. I would prefer to run the Linux version of Firefox natively with only the Windows version of Shockwave Player using Wine.
Is there some method to achieve this ? Maybe there is some kind of wrapper application, something like the one used for Windows wireless networking drivers (NDISWrapper) or maybe there are instructions on how to embed the Shockwave Player using Wine in Firefox somewhere. Obviously my needs are quite specific but I am sure that being able to use Windows browser plugins/addons under the Linux version of Firefox would be of interest to at least a few other people.
I am running fedora 13 and am having problems installing Java and Adobe Flash player to work on firefox. Whenever I try Java, it says plugin not avalible, and whenever I try Adobe, it says that it failed. Im sorry if this was posted before, I did look for it.
I heard all about the awesomeness of Firefox 4 and decided to ditch the old Fedora default one (3.6.16). I put the firefox folder in the .mozilla directory and I run it from there. The problem is that the only plugin I have is the 64-bit Flash plugin (because it is the only one in the plugins folder in the .mozilla directory). I have no idea where the other plugins for things like Adobe Reader an VLC are. If anyone knows Fedora well, I want my plugins to work in the new Firefox.
I'm using 8.10, but wanted to upgrade firefox to the latest version, so I downloaded the tarball from their website and compiled that. FF 3.6 works fine, but I havn't been able to get my flash or java plugins to work since.
I've just come from a website that had mpeg and x-aiff audio files, neither of which Firefox would play. I got the "missing plugins" banner, but when I clicked on install I was told nothing suitable was available.I was able to play the files, by downloading with Download Helper and playing in Rhythmbox, but surely there should be some plugin?
