question about permissions and sudo
location: linux.com - date: June 4, 2009
I'm running an unofficial version of Ubuntu/ Crunchbang Linux.
It uses the sudo command. It's driving me a bit nuts trying to get used to sudo. I'm trying to learn how to do bash scripting language and I need some help setting up an environment to learn. I would appreiciate any help with this matter. Preferably, I would like to be able to use a terminal and not have do deal with sudo while I'm in that enviroment. Could I do something like "chroot"? I have a backup partition that I could use. Mount the partition then would I be free of the sudo constraints?
NTFS3g using NTFS permissions
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 20, 2012
Can anyone help me with mounting an NTFS permissions so that Linux users can use the native NTFS permissions.
I am mounting this using fstab options:
but this just leaves it as owner=root, group=root and all read-only.
Have I misunderstood the 'permissions' option or is there something else I need to do to get this working.
[SOLVED] Permissions between Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Linux Ubuntu 9.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 13, 2010
First of all apologies if I am posting in the wrong department but I have an issue with permissions under linux Ubuntu 9.10 with an external HDD. This external HDD was formatted with GUID partition table back in the days when I was still using Mac OS X. Now I have moved to linux Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop. The problem is, when I connect that external HDD to my new laptop running Linux Ubuntu 9.10, I have permissions issues. All the Directories and sub-folder are read only, and permission-wise, I am unable to change them as it seems that I am not the owner anymore of any Directories and sub-folder. The weird thing is that when I cd into one the directory " movies" for example, I have "drwxrwxrwx" user 99. When I use the GUI to move folders and files in or out, I have " the destination is read-only"
I really need your help on this as I have pictures from a couple of years back amounting to about 600GB. I hope I wont have to reformat the drive c
Permissions problem with mount
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 5, 2010
I am pretty mush a newb with Linux and I'm stuck on something. I have two computers. One runs unRaid NAS software which is built on Linux. The other is running XBMC media center which is built on Ubuntu. XBMC has a local folder (/home/kevin/.xbmc/userdata/Thumbnails/) that it stores thumbnails in. I am essentially trying to move this folder to my server, but XBMC needs to see it as local. I started by deleting the old Thumbnails folder and it's contents. I then created an empty Thumbnails folder on XBMC and I also created one on my unRaid comp (192.168.1.20/disk7/xbmc_thumbs/Thumbnails). On the XBMC comp I run:
Samba 4/Ubuntu 12.04.1 Server roaming profiles permissions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 1, 2013
I just played around with Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 and samba 4 alpha 18 (from apt-get).
Installation goes ok. However, I got some issues with BIND. When I combine those 2 tutorials:
I had no problems anymore.
Now I can join windows 8 to the domain. Also I can create users in dsm.msc, but when I log in as user I am getting "temporary account bla bla warning."
After researching, I set my roaming profile folder to chmod 0777. And it's working...
But 0777 does not look secure, isn't it?
Is there any solution?

[SOLVED] Ubuntu 10.04 ignoring group permissions
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 29, 2010
This one has been driving me insane for two days now.
I have a machine in my office that is responsible for archiving data from customer's hard disks (at their request, of course). This machine runs Ubuntu 10.04 as it's OS. On this machine, there is a directory "/codex/source" which resides on an NFS server connected to the client machine by a dedicated gigabit switch.
In this folder I have about 20 or 25 scripts, which perform various archival and cataloging functions for the customer data.
There are three groups that are assigned to various scripts to restrict which users can access which scripts. These groups are recovery, purge, and usrmgt. Most scripts in the directory are assigned to the recovery group. One scripts "purge" is assigned to the "purge" group and is responsible for deleting old data caches. Two other scripts createUser, and deleteUser are assigned to the usrmgt group.
All files in the folder are assigned 750.
Change ownership of all games at once? Or remove permissions?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 16, 2010
I caught my two oldest boys at various times playing games instead of doing their school work.
I said enough is enough. I will lock them out of the games. I don't think you need to be in the games group to play games.

Mount permissions problems since upgrade to Natty 11.04
- date: July 13, 2011
My system isn't behaving properly. I attach my USB camera and get a popup "Unable to mount New Volume Not Authorized".
If I use system->disk utility the drive is shown, but the mount volume button gives:
Error mounting volume an error occurred while performing an operation on "New Volume" (Partition 1 of FUJIFILM USB-DRIVEUNIT): Permission denied.
I get the same message when trying to mount DVD too.
If I sudo palimpsest I can mount the volume and access until I close disk ulity.
I did discover that I wasn't a member of the fuse group, but I've now added myself and it's still not resolved.
I'm on 11.04, having upgraded from a couple of previous versions of ubuntu successfully.
:~$ uname -a
Linux claret 2.6.38-10-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 28 15:05:41 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I hope someone can guide me to resolve this.
