Ubuntu :: Inherit Parent Folder Permissions When Copying Files ?

Mar 28, 2011

I do have an Ubuntu Headless server which is running Samba on it. My mp3 file collection resides on that server on is being share.

So far, no problems connecting to that drive and writing from my Windows box on that share. But if I use my main laptop, which runs Ubuntu Lucid and download an mp3 song from Amazon, the moment I move that to the share, I got permissions problems from the Windows machine. This is clearly a permission issue with group and others; the song is being created on the share without read and write permissions to others or the samba group I created.

My question is. How can I make this process simple or automatic, when moving songs to the share? I don't want to go there everytime and run ...

Code:

Which was basically how I reset or fixed the problem.

I've read about umask, but not sure if that applies here or not, because I'm not creating the file but moving it.

General :: Cannot Inherit The Permission From Parent Folder To Child

Apr 26, 2011

I have setgid permission on my home directory (/home/XXXX) the permission look like below.

Code:

drwxrws--- 2 toshi jadu 4096 Apr 26 16:54 getset

If I create new directory in this getset folder the permission of getset folder could not inherit.

Code:

#cd getset
#mkdir test2
#ls |grep test2
drwxr-s--- 2 toshi jadu 4096 Apr 26 16:56 test2

As I know the setgid utility allow to inherit the permission from parent directory to child directory.

I've ran into a pickle regarding permissions and ACL. My users has a folder called "UVdokumenter", in wich they want to put documents up for sharing and editing. Everyone needs to be able to edit the files in that folder, so i set the ACL to this:

Code:
# file: UVdokumenter/
# owner: fleten

General :: Make New File Permission Inherit From The Parent Directory?

Jun 12, 2010

I have a directory called data. Then I am running a script under the user id 'robot'. robot writes to the data directory and update files inside. The idea is data is open for both me and robot to update.

So I setup the permission and owner group like this

drwxrwxr-x 2 me robot-grp 4096 Jun 11 20:50 data

where both me and robot belongs to the 'robot-grp'. I change the permission and the owner group recursively like the parent directory.

I regularly upload new files into the data directory using rsync. Unfortunately, new files uploaded does not inherit the parent directory's permission as I hope. Instead it looks like this

-rw-r--r-- 1 me users 6 Jun 11 20:50 new-file.txt

When robot tries to update new-file.txt, it fails due to lack of file permission.

I'm not sure if setting umask helps. In anycase the new files does not really follow it.

$ umask -S
u=rwx,g=rx,o=rx

I'm often confounded by Unix file permission. Do I even have a right plan? I'm using Debian lenny.

Ubuntu :: Change File Permission Settings To Force All Documents To Inherit Parent Document Settings?

Aug 21, 2011

i have a computer with 3 users on it, and a folder using samba that everyone on the network has access to. Lets say that, the folder is stored in /etc/sharedfolder. What happens is, when user1 puts a folder in it, then logs off, user 2 attempts to modify it and fails, because permission is set to 755, and they are not in the same group. (even if they were, it should still need to be 775) Anyway, my current solution is, every 5 minutes a crontab changes permission like so: chmod 777 -R /etc/sharedfiles && chown useradmin:superadmin -R /etc/sharedfiles Which works, but seeing as there is getting close to a gig in there, this is a bad solution, as it eats up the computers resources. Solutions that i think might work:

1) create a script that only changes permissions that need be changed.
2) change file permission settings to force all documents to inherit parent document settings

General :: Copying All .jpg Or .JPG Files From A Folder And All Its Subfolders To /usr/name/pictures Folder?

How would i go about copying all .jpg or .JPG files from a folder and all its subfolders to my /usr/name/pictures folder? I'm guessing I'd have to use some sort of .[jJ][pP][gG] to get all the pictures from other examples i've seen, but really not sure how to use that in a recursive cp.

General :: Some Folders Inherit Its Permissions Some Don't

Jan 7, 2010

I've a problem on one of my servers with file permissions. Quite simply , when I run chmod 777 -R against a folder , it seems to be inconsistent on making that particular folders permissions trickle down to the folders beneath. Some folders inherit its permissions , some don't. For example...

/projects
Contains
/Jan /Feb /Mar /April

They all in turn contain folders marked /1 , /2 , /3 , up to /10, these folders all contain more folders , running to a depth of 6.

However , depending on what folder our users save their files into , some are saved with rwxrwxr-- , some get saved with rwxrwxrx. Forgive my lack of understanding but if I run the above command against the top level folder will this not make every folder and file below it inherit its permissions of 777 ?? Or is there something else that I need to do?

Ubuntu :: Copying All Files In Folder To Another Location?

/home/mahmood/sim/a/b/file2.h
/home/mahmood/sim/a/c/file3.txt
/home/mahmood/sim/d/file4.txt

How can I copy all of them to /home/mahmood/sim. So that when I run "ls" in /home/mahmood/sim, I see all files:

file1.cpp
file2.h
file3.txt
file4.txt

Can 'cp' search for all file and copy them in another folder?

Ubuntu :: Duplicating Folder Structure And Copying Files

Nov 21, 2010

I'm looking for some way to search a given directory, copy its folder structure to another given directory, and copy from the original only certain files into the newly created directory.Vague, I'm sure. But here's what I'm actually looking for:My music player won't display album art without a "cover.jpg" image in each folder where the files are, but I have Rhythmbox set to only copy the top rated songs. Each file does have its cover embedded in it, but there's also a cover.jpg in each folder.

So I'd like to let Rhythmbox handle the actual song copying, and then have a script or something that I can run that will scan my onboard music directory for cover.jpg files and then place them in the appropriate folders within my music player's folders. Obviously I can't just copy my onboard music directory, or I'm getting *every* song, not just the top-rated, which defeats the purpose of syncing at all.

I have the ssh part figured out, but the files will not copy to the laptop due to permissions.

Ubuntu Security :: Changing Permissions Of Files To Reflect Their New Folder?

Jan 4, 2011

I have a shared folder set up that allows all users on the computer to have access to all the music on the computer. In the folder with all the music the group 'music' has permission to add and delete files and all users are members of 'music'. This should allow all users to have complete access to these files, however, when I add files to the folder they retain their original permissions and do not take on the permissions of the folder. I could change the permissions of the files to reflect the folder every time I add a cd. But that is annoying. What I am wondering is if there is any way to make files automatically reflect the permissions on the folder they are moved into.

Programming :: Test Permissions On All Files / Folders Into A Folder Recursive?

May 16, 2010

Way to test permissions on all files/folders into a folder recursive, then if those are not user:user then do :

Code:
chown user:user thatconcernedfile

The problem with that

Code:
chown user:user -R /folder

is that it is doing changes on file permissions whihch are already ok. If you wanna maintain a specific permission on a folder this is really not good this :

Code:
while [ 1 ] ; do
chown user:user -R /folder
# /folder contains 6.0 Tb
sleep 2s
done

General :: Copy Folder Hierarchy / Recreate All Folders From One Directory Without Copying Over Contents Of Folder?

Is there a way to recreate all the folders from one directory to another without copying over the contents of the folder? I've been trying to do something like this,

Code:for i in `ls $X`; do mkdir $PATH/$i; doneUnfortunately $i is deliminated by whitespaces in the filenames and not the actual folders.

$X contains only other folders so I dont have to worry about regular files but any kind of more "advanced" solution would work.

OpenSUSE :: Zip A Folder But Not Include It's Parent Directories?

May 11, 2011

I use "zip -r" to zip the following folder:

/root/Desktop/administration/backup

....My only grip is that when you open the zip file, the parent directories are there too.

So within the zip file I have to navigate through "/root/Desktop/administration" just to get to the directory called backup.

Is there a way for me to zip the directory backup, and not include the parent directories? I want to be able to open the zip file and see only the backup directory listed.

Ubuntu :: Copying Folder To Home Folder?

Jan 8, 2011

I'm not positive if this is in the correct section but I am hoping so. I am running dual-boot with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10. I hunted down my files from Windows that I need for school (old papers, research, etc.) and found it under "file system" --> "host" --> "users" --> "zbollman". I can access all of my files and I'm happy now that I don't have to boot between the two constantly to get what I need. However, I tried to copy the file to my home folder, but it said I do not have enough room. I'm about 5GB short. How do I go about allocating more space so that I can copy this folder so that all of my information is easily accessible?

Ubuntu :: Don't Have Those Permissions To Copying .img To Drive

May 22, 2010

I accidentally wiped my 120GB external hardrive clean ( it was at about 95% capacity ) and I was able to recover 111.80GB back using ddrescue and all of those files now sit in a Recovery.img file.

1 ) I know I have to mount this file... yet every time I try to mount it back on my external HD permissions jump down my neck, and to add to it when I try to give my user full permissions for that drive it never works and resets to how it was.

2 )I have tried copying to .img to my drive so I could jsut worry about it later and free up some local HD space yet I don't have those permissions as well...
