I'm new to Linux, so I decided to try using Wubi to get started. THe problem is, when it finished installing 10.04, I got this message: OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso' Is there any way around this? It might just be that overly restrictive thing called Vista (which I have the bad luck to be using). I was considering getting a USB drive for Ubuntu anyway..
I recently got interested with with OS.. So I downloaded wubi in Ubuntu website. I opted for the Ubuntu Netbook Edition as am using a lappy. However, halfway through finishing download I got an error. The log shows:
I am unable to start my xserver, using the startx command that I have been using for the past 5 years. It goes to the blue loading screen with the x for a cursor, hangs there for about a min or so then goes back to the command screen. I get an error:
giving up. xinit: Permission denied (errno 13): unable to connect to xserver waiting for xserver to shut down xinit: Server error.I have tried logging on as root and trying startx again. Same error.
I have a ubuntu server 10.04 with LAMP installed. I also have ubuntu 10.10 on a laptop and can copy files to the server fine. To keep my website uptodate, I usually use Filezilla without any problems. I have just installed Fedora 14 on an old desktop and set up "my stall" ok. The problem is that I cannot copy any files from Ferdoa to the server due to:-
Response: 550 Permission denied. Error: Critical file transfer error I have tried to change the directory on the server "/var/www" using chmod -R 775* and chmod -R 777*, but it makes no difference, the file transfer still fails.
I want to make a live-USB containing among others both Ubuntu desktop i386 and Ubuntu desktop AMD64. How do I go about this? I tried using unetbootin, first adding i386 and then amd64, but that failed. My computer with an athlon II did manage to boot, and showed it had booted into the 64-bit version (ram shown was 3.9 GB, i386 goes to about 2.7 I think), my wife's computer with a pentium 4 did not manage to boot, got to a black screen. I think this is because casper has issues, being overwritten (I'd seen something to that effect somewhere), and thus only the latest version added being booted (in this case amd 64).
I'm under the impression that the startup disc creator included won't help, nor won't the multicd.sh script, so how do I circumvent the issues?
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on my Windows Vista Home Premium machine. My specs far exceed the requirements to install, so I know there's no problem there.On installation I receive an error somewhat through that says something like:Quote:An error occured:Permission deniedFor more information, please see the log file:C:UsersUsernameAppDataLocalTempwubi-9.10ubuntu1-rev160.logSo.... I go to that file, and the last line in it is:Quote:OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-9.10-desktop-amd64.iso'I did run Wubi Installer as an Administrator, and unblocked it giving it full privileges.It's really annoying because my download speed is 80kb/s so it takes about 3 hours to download. During that 3 hours I can't use my internet so I have to wait, and wait, and wait, and then boom.error. And wubi can't pick up where it left off, you have to uninstall to reinstall, which sucks tremendously.
Appear sometimes ago a message: E: Opening /etc/apt/sources.list - ifstream::ifstream (13: Permission denied) I'm trying update my computers but I don't get.. Please.. All my docs, movies and pictures are in this PC... What Can I Do to fix?
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 cant install Ubuntu 11.04 , on my Emachines laptop. On my Windows 7, When I boot up my USB/CD/card, it says: Ubuntu failed to mount dev/loop0 , something like that everytime, no matter what I do.

I have Ubuntu10.10 in my HP-laptop. I am trying to install ANSYS. There is an install file in setup. When I try to give install in terminal, being in the same directory it says, command not found. I tried ./INSTALL, it says "bash: ./INSTALL: Permission denied". I also tried from my home folder with full path for the install file, as the readme file says, "To install, enter the full path to the installation program on the media or to the downloaded installation files". I don't know what to do. I have these setup file in my external hard drive.
I am trying to ssh into my server that I do have ssh installed on and have followed instructions carefully on ssh_config. My problem is that when I try to ssh from my desktop PC terminal into the server with ssh email@example.com, I get in return, firstname.lastname@example.org's password: I type in the password and I then get, Permission denied, please try again. I am putting in the correct password and am stumped......Please excuse my ignorance in this I have been using Ubuntu Desktop for 2-3 years and have been doing decent and am trying to venture out a bit.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu on an Aspire laptop with Windows XP. I downloaded 10.04 and burned an ISO image. I boot Windows and open the ISO disk. I open the first choice which is to try Ubuntu prior to a complete installation. The installation starts and proceeds for a few minutes. Then it stops and displays a message 'Permission Denied' and a suggestion to check the installation log. The last few lines are:
I'm trying to configure my /usr/share/ettercap/etter.dns for dns spoofing with ettercap. but when I change the file and try to save it ubuntu says permision deneight Even when I try doing this from the terminal with sudo. It seems there is know way to change the file.
An uncaught exception was raised: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/media/e6f6ac46-4bfc-487b-9c81-aab706ead9e3/boot'
The above is the error message I get when I try to create an usb-flash boot drive. I downloaded the iso for Mint10 and use the "create startup disk" program to create the boot drive. I can see both the iso and the flash drive within the program, but when I click on "create disk" I get the above error message?
I have 3rd party software that I need to install. It is called VNMRJ. It is packed as one .tar. I extracted the .tar to the desktop (under root) and want to start the installation. However, during the installation process, all .tar files included the the package (sub directories) can't be extracted by the installation routine. For every .tar I get the error
tar: /root/Desktop/vnmrj21b_inova_01106/code/common/com.tar: Cannot open: Permission denied Installation of VNMR failed tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now DONE: 112 KB
I installed MATLAB R2009a in my laptop (Fedora 14 x86-64), the installation was succesful but when I run MATLAB (in a console), appears a message: error while loading shared libraries: libut.so: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: Permission denied
I find a "solution", execute in a terminal: execstack -c libut.so

I'm trying to install Ubuntu on Windows XP as a dual boot using Wubi, but whenever I try to install it I get an error message that says: An error occurred: Permission denied For more information, please see the log file: c:docume-1lanzarolocals-1 empwubi-10.04.1-rev190.log Does anyone know what this means and if I can fix it?
I am looking for a copy of 11.04 desktop beta1 amd64 to download. This is running on an x120e. Beta1 installs and works but freezes every few hours. Beta2 almost fully installs but pops up with a friendly error that says "installation has failed" with not much helpful in the syslogs. 11.04 Final kernel panics half way through installation.
At this point, I've tried almost everything, so I'm just trying to get back on Beta1 to get stable because this is my work computer. There are a lot of links on google, but every single one went dead as soon as final was released. After that, I will work on trying to get 11.04 final installed properly.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot on my laptop next to Win 7. I installed using all defaults, as I am pretty much a novice user. I also put 10.04 on my desktop at home, but did not install. I am running that machine ON the Win 7 partition. My problem is that on my desktop, I get a boot option of Windows or Ubuntu from the MBR, and Windows is the default. If I choose Ubuntu, I then get the Grub menu which defaults to Ubuntu (fine, I already chose that).
On my laptop (where I did the full install on its own partition) Grub takes over, which would be fine but for Ubuntu being the default. I really want the default to be Win 7. I have read several posts, and a tutorial on changing the boot order in Grub, but when I try to access the file mentioned (etc/default/grub) I get an error "Permission Denied". I have made myself Administrator, so I should have access to everything. I know I need to change the line GRUB_DEFAULT=0 to GRUB_DEFAULT=6 to make this work, but I cannot open the file. Is there an easier way of doing this? Honestly, if you want novice users to try out Ubuntu, sending them to command line is NOT the way. The great majority of people that might be willing to try Ubuntu will run for the hills at the simple suggestion of command line. Most everything else you do is handled by an app, why not this?
A few days ago I tried to install a driver for a Brother printer (HL-5040) in terminal mode by issuing "sudo dpkg -i --force-all hl5040lpr-1.1.2-1.i386.deb" on my Ubuntu 9.10 PC.
During the process several error messages were displayed. All of them say "permission denied" to access a directory /etc/init.d/lpd. Consequently, the installation failed and Synaptic package manager does not work any more and becomes broken.
Questions: Why did I get "permission denied" as a su? How can I get around the problem so I can re-install the driver?
