user does not have permissions on own home directory?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 14, 2012
I've been using ubuntu desktop for a few years, so I figured i'd be ok installing it on my linode. Unfortunately, I don't actually know what I'm doing. I added a user (my non-root account) via command line, but that user doesn't appear to have write access to it's home directory. Whenever I run irssi, i get
** ERROR **: Couldn't create /home/username/.irssi directory
Does anyone know what I did wrong and/or what I need to do to fix it? I don't really know what I'm doing so please try to keep things simple.

Scripts launched from udev do not have DISPLAY access anymore?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: December 20, 2013
I have a script that runs from udev when I plug in my external drive. It always worked. But after upgrading from Linux 3.8/Xorg 1.12/Mint 14 (Ubuntu 12.10 compatible) to Linux 3.11/Xorg 1.14/Mint 16 (Ubuntu 13.10 compatible), it doesn't work anymore.
The script still runs, but none of the commands that require the display work. I figured that out by quitting the udev daemon and manually run udevd --debug for verbose output (more below).
This script used to work in Mint 14/12.10:
notify-send -t 700 "mounting $DEV ($UUID)"
gnome-terminal -t "Backing up home..." -x rsync long line of data
zenity --warning --text="Done."
But not anymore in Mint 16/13.10. In case you are wondering about possible solutions, I gradually added stuff and now it looks like this:
notify-send -t 700 "mounting $DEV ($UUID)"
gnome-terminal -t "Backing up home..
Do not have permission to read NTFS partition mounted with fstab
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 20, 2014
I recently installed Arch on my laptop as a third system, but have run into a bit of trouble with my data partition (ntfs). I mount it at startup with fstab, but as a normal user it does not even give me read access. Currently I have circumvented this by making myself part of the root group, but that seems like a bit of a security risk...
My partitions are as follows:
/dev/sda1 - Windows (NTFS)
/dev/sda2 - Data (NTFS)
/dev/sda3 - Ubuntu (ext4)
/dev/sda4 - Arch (ext4)
My fstab file:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information
# <file system> <dir> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
# UUID=c2fcf1ec-cd3f-4d1b-aa50-75ae8d96069d LABEL=ARCH
/dev/sda4 / ext4 rw,relatime,data=ordered 0 1
# Mount the DATA partition
/dev/sda2 /home/daniel/Data ntfs rw,auto,exec,umask=007 0 0 2
# Add the swap file
/swapfile none swap defaults 0 0
The same partition works perfect
Help finding pictures that do NOT have EXIF Tags
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 2, 2014
From a set of 20K+ images I want to find a copy out all those that do not have any tags set. Does anyone have a method I could use?
The reason for doing this is that the set includes many duplicates, which I can easily find using dupeGuru, but I only want to delete those that do not have tags set. Otherwise I will have to spend lots of time re-entering tags.
If I move everything that does not have a tag into a distinct directory I can quickly use dupeGuru to identify the specific files I can afford to lose.

ttyO ports do not have the good port address on QEMU 1.4.0 running image for beagleboardxm
location: linuxexchange.com - date: June 13, 2013
I'm running an Linux Image (kernel 3.2.8) for beagleboard-xm on QEMU's 1.4.0 emulator Ubuntu distribution for 13.04. My image is created using Buildroot beagle_defconfig. I added some pkgs to be able to debug a little.
QEMU call cmd:
`$ sudo qemu-system-arm -M beaglexm -m 1024 -sd ./test.img -clock unix -serial stdio -device usb-mouse -device usb-kbd -serial pty -serial pty`
[sudo] password for emperador:
char device redirected to /dev/pts/3 (label serial1)
char device redirected to /dev/pts/4 (label serial2)
What I want to do is to have a communication between guest and host across serial the 4 differents ttyO present on the guest. QEMU offer facilities to redirect the trafic to some device in the host side. My problem goes like this:
At the guest kernel boot Im able to see that my UART where enabled

How to Customize Live CD? I do not have Ubuntu installed on the HDD.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 14, 2013
I would like to create a customized live CD. I consider using Ubuntu Customization Kit. I do not have Ubuntu installed on my HDD.
I boot Ubuntu installation CD and click "Try Ubuntu". "Add new software" and click "Ubuntu Customization Kit" etc.
However, I must make sure that I have a non-compromised and genuinely clean Ubuntu Live CD because I will use it for financial transactions.
So - how can I be sure that I can be sure the downloaded "Ubuntu customization kit" by Ubuntu is the real one? I know there is a very low probability that the server is compromised. But even this low probability is a real problem for me because once I create the live CD, then I will use it for banking, for years without creating a new one. Who would want to have doubt for something he will use for years for banking and other financial transaction for long years and anything can happen anytime? In the software center I guess there is no file hash check possibility
