Joomla does not have Directory Permissions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 4, 2010
EDIT: SUCCESS!!! Learned chmod (yeah, you all probably going....DUH!!!) and now the problem is solved.
Hello hello hello
I am learning Joomla, and after a long struggle to get it running (now I can do it in 5 minutes), I still have one problem which I think is an Ubuntu security feature, and not a setting with Joomla (I could be wrong since I am new to Joomla, new to the terminal, and for all intense purposes, new to Linux - just been dabbeling).
So here is a screenshot of what my problem is. What is happeing I believe is that Ubuntu is not allowing Joomla (/opt/lampp/) to write files to the required directories becuase it does not have Directory Permissions.
I have NO IDEA how to change that....I don't even know how to copy files into restricted folders using GUI my self(I use the terminal so far).
Any help by anyone, clear and in steps will be greatly appreciated. Currently Joomla is not fully functional and any additions I have to install manually which is becoming a pain sinc
Permissions Do Not Propagate In Gnome & KDE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 21, 2012
I did a fresh 64bit 12.04 install. I put both Gnome & KDE on it.
I copied files from my NTFS hdd to the newly created /home directory. The folders & files copied fine. Unfortunately, the permissions & ownership did not.
I assumed NTFS doesn't store / read / recognize Linux permissions & ownership. To fix this, I entered my account's /home directory and reset the permissions & ownership. Very strangely, the permissions & ownership did not fully propagate.
In both Gnome & KDE, I could not make the top directory's permissions & ownership fully propagate downward to include all existing folders and files. Specifically, I could get folder permissions and ownership to change but not file permissions and ownerships.
I ran into this problem before and had to use both chmod and chown.
I HATE using those because it is so easy to hose your entire system. It is enough to make me return to Windo

"you are not the owner so you can't change these permissions"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 21, 2009
Well, I am the owner of all three profiles on my system. However, I wanted to clear up the Desktop on "Profile 1" and move an Open Office Doc file to the Desktop of "Profile 2"
So I logged into profile 1
then did this more or less:
$ cd /home/profile1/Desktop/
$ sudo mv file.odt /home/profile2/Desktop
then everything seemed fine file no longer on Desktop of Profile 1, so i logged out, then logged into profile 2
And now "file.odt" is on the desktop of Profile 2 instead of Profile 1 (Just as I wanted...,,.except).
file.odt has an orange locked symbol and is now read only.
I tried to use the gui to modify permissions but it say that since I'm not the owner I can't change these permissions.
So how do I change the owner to Profile 2 of this file.
(Since its only an odt file Its not system) All I could find on here was how dangerous to alter permissions on system files. I just want to be able to use my seco
"You are not the owner so you cannot change these permissions" for png files?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 16, 2013
I recently went ten rounds with the scanner part of my canon scanner/printer that ended with me be able to open scangearmp only by using 'sudo scangearmp'.
So I have to assume that my problem is being caused by running the program using root.
I can scan the images no problem, save them no problem, but when I attempt to view or import the files it says I do not have permission. when I go to the permissions tab pf the properties of the image I cannot change the permissions because I do not own the files, root does.
So my Questions are:
1. Is it dangerous for me to be running scangearmp using sudo?
2. Is there are "...for dummies" explanation as to how I can gain ownership of these files as my user.
3. if 2 is a no, how can I use the files using sudo.
You guys are all quite brilliant and I appreciate the work you do. Thanks,

"You are not the owner, so you can't change permissions". – ubuntu 11.10
First off I am not an idiot and I have been trying to search throughout the forum for 2 days to find my answer and ether post is too old or to vague and assume you know more than you do. If ubuntu ever wants to actually be a viable replacement for windows it has to stop acting like it's so important. I am only running it on my desktop pc. If I wanted server software/security I would download server software. If I screw something up on my PC I am the only one that's affected.
How could it be so difficult to add additional storage?
Now that I pissed off all the ubuntu rules no matter what people, here is my problem;
I need to set permission on ubuntu 11.10 64 bit, so I can copy or even use my additional raid storage. I just need to know how to do this. There should be a simple command, it should be like a switch…I'm betting it’s not. Thanks in advance if you know how to fix my issu

so i have a My Passport external hard drive that i plugged into my desktop because i have some .mov files i need to transfer, but when i try to drag the folder over, i get a ""this destination is read only". when i check the properties, it says the owner is root and the group is root, and it gives me the message that i put as the title. I am very new to ubuntu so im kind of confused.. i tried switching to root via su root in the terminal but that doesnt really do anything. any help would be appreciated, thanks!
Why do you think schools do not convert to Linux?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 13, 2007
I am very big when it comes to education and think that expensive licenses help prevent teachers from being paid more, more classes being offered and over all more money for the school to use and operate with. This is of course not only for US schools, (Although I don't know how other schools systems work).
I can think of a couple of reasons, but I can say that the free cost of linux should out weigh them.
Industry Standard. When it comes to designing pictures in a design class or building websites in Flash, Linux does a tough time competing. I don't like the fact that there are very few programs out there to edit flash (effectively) but the fact is, Unless you have Macromedias studio, its pretty dang tough, specifically for students trying to learn. Also, Photo Shop is much more advanced than GIMP (I am not bashing, I use gimp for image editing) but industry standards are such. Photoshop has much more features and more brushes etc.
The point that I'm making is that when
