Ubuntu :: File (group) Permission Dont Work As Expected

Feb 4, 2011

Well, this is a problem that keeps on coming, and I never found a solution: Maybe it is just me misunderstanding how it should work, but:

1) do you confirm that, as a member of the group "fuse", I should be able to read the file?
2) of course, I could change the permission of the file, or read it as sudo, but sometimes this is not possible. how to achieve it then?

Ubuntu :: Share File Permission \ Some One Copy Their File In This Folder The Permission Is Marked As "no Group" "no Owner"?

May 18, 2011

I'm using ubuntu 11.04, I'm having some problem of ownership while sharing folder/files. to share i change the folder share option:1. Share this folder, then followed by 2.allow others to create and delete files in this folder3. guest access.Now if someone in my local network edit any file and save it, it gets locked. if some one copy their file in this folder the permission is marked as "no group" "no owner". and they get unaccessible to me. i tried doing chown <user> <folder> but it says Operation not permitted. Now how i can possibly share my folder on local network so that they can be edited by others without getting locked down , if they copy files i can able to modify them.

Server :: Saving A File Removes The Group Execute Permission?

May 23, 2011

Here are some example files that are shared through samba:

-rwxrwx--- user1 group1 file1.txt
-rwxrwx--- user1 group1 file2.txt

When user2 (who is also a member of group1) edits file2.txt the permissions change:

-rwxrwx--- user1 group1 file1.txt
-rwxrw---- user2 group1 file2.txt

user1 then has issues opening the file. This also goes for new files that are created (they are missing the group execute permission).

I have set the option "create mask = 0770" in my smb.conf. Without this set, permissions default to something like -rwxr--r--

General :: Group Member Not Able To Write To Group's File?

Feb 8, 2011

I have a group (GROUP) with a number of users. I recently added a new user (NEW). NEW is able to read but not write group files, whereas all the other users in the group can read and write to the group files. The permissions for the group files indicate that all members of group should have write permission -rwxrwxr-x

/etc/group indicates that NEW is a member of GROUP


Don't know if it matters, but both OLD and NEW write to the GROUP files over an internet connection. why NEW can't write to GROUP files? Is there a maximum number of members in a group that I might have exceeded?

Networking :: Permission / Group After Sshing Into Box

Nov 4, 2010

I've got a problem with groups on linux (slackware). I'm trying to ssh from one computer into another to do some work, but I'm running into permission issues.

If I do the work locally as a user
If I do the work with ssh as root
If I do the work with ssh as a user ;(

Both computers are mine. (By locally, I mean physically sitting by that computer logging in the normal way.) When I log in locally as a regular user I'm a member of the following groups: 'users floppy audio video cdrom' But when I ssh into the same computer, being the same user, I'm only a member of the group: 'users'

Q1. What gives? Where/How can I change this?

Q2. Also, where do linux/slackware store the group information? According to /etc/group I'm only member of 'users'. Where does it keep the info that I belong to 'users floppy audio video cdrom'?

Ubuntu Servers :: Group Permission On Dir And Files For Apache

Mar 5, 2011

Me and 2 others are working on a website (Bob, Mike, and Joe). We made a group called developers and each of us are in the developers group. The Apache server runs as www-data. When we upload files, the file owner is the users name and the group is "developers".

/etc/group has the following



I have always just set everything to 775 and just called it good. Well I don't want to wake up to a Russian political message plastered all over the site. It's time I do things properly.

Slackware :: Can't Change The Group Permission For The Folder

Jan 13, 2010

I've installed slax6 onto an ext3 partition and setup a users account, i've also just managed to mount some virtualbox shared folders which are working and i can access them fine. The problem is I cannot seem to give limited user accounts access to them. root can access them no problem! but right clicking and changing the permissions do nothing, because once I click apply, reopen the menu, the changes have reverted. I've tried chmod'ing them.. chmod o=rwx /mnt/folder I used 'o' because I can't seem to change the group permission for the folder. The shared folder I am mounting is formatted in NTFS and the other in ext3, I can't change the permissions of either.

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 :: Gnome-settings-daemon Does Not Work As Expected?

Oct 28, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a brand new HP EliteBook 8540w with an Nvidia card. To get the machine to work at all I have to use the proprietary nvidia driver. The downside is that when I use this driver gnome-settings-daemon seems to crash when I start the machine which results in a ugly theme. To fix this I have to run the following command:

sudo gnome-settings-daemon

After this the theme is re-applied. If I try to run gnome-settings-daemon as my regular user I get the following messages:

** (gnome-settings-daemon:2187): WARNING **: Failed to acquire org.gnome.SettingsDaemon
** (gnome-settings-daemon:2187): WARNING **: Could not acquire name

Ubuntu Installation :: User Interface Looks Basic And Multimedia Buttons Dont Work

Aug 12, 2010

I updated Lucid yesterday, and when I restarted the user interface was changed to a more simple feeling display. This makes me think I'm stuck in a "basic" mode or something. I attached a screen shot, but to give you an idea ill describe some issues. For one thing the minimize buttons are now on the right. The volume control, which used to appear on the top right of the screen, is gone and my multimedia volume control buttons on my Inspiron 1420 no longer work. Furthermore, the command terminal is now white and the keyboard shortcuts for copy and past don't work.

Immediately after updating I also got an error message at login (which also appears different and gives options on bottom of screen like gnome Failsafe) which said something like "gnome default power management installed incorrectly...". I followed the advice of a forum thread that involved the purge command and that seemed to remedy that message.

General :: Permission Denied When Accessing VirtualBox Shared Folder When Member Of The Vboxsf Group

Jul 7, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 (guest) on Windows 7 (host) with the guest additions installed. I have an auto-mount folder that maps to my D: drive on the host which I can access using sudo ls /media/sf_D_DRIVE - however, even when my user (ross) is a member of the vboxsf group I get a permission denied error when attempting to explore it. I have restarted since adding my user to the vboxsf group.

This should work because I am a member of the group (which has rwx rights), so why doesn't it?

ross@panther:~$ ls -l /media
total 8
drwxrwx--- 1 root vboxsf 8192 2011-07-03 22:24 sf_D_DRIVE
ross@panther:~$ ls -l /media/sf_D_DRIVE/
