    Thanks,

  5. [ubuntu] Mount Error - Folder on Windows Machine (Used to work before upgrade)

    Hi,

    I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 LTS.

    Previously, I could use this command to mount a folder which resides on a Windows XP machine:

    Hi,

    I have an interesting thing going on. It isn't a practical issue, since I can get around it, but I would be interested to know what is causing it.

    Re: Complete N00b command line tutorial

    Looks good. I stayed up to speed with that one at least!

    This is probably a dumb question, but how do I subscribe to the blog using RSS?

    Thanks,

    Alan.

    [ubuntu] Re: Backup methods

    Hi,

    I am following a similar track. Can I just check that this is correct?

    We can mount a drive via the GUI without installing anything extra, but to do it via the command line, we have to...

    Hi Almnahal,

    Just wondering how you got on?

    If you have, or are still planning to proceed, I would love to leverage off your efforts to date :-)

    Thanks,

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Change permissions on folder and sub-folders recursively using GUI

    Hi Morbius1,



    Sorry - I did read that bit, but I (wrongly!) figured that 'users' would be all users.

    So what is 'users' for?

    Also, does any new user I ever create, automatically get...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Change permissions on folder and sub-folders recursively using GUI

    Hi Morbius1,




    Out of interest, why 'plugdev'?

    I had a look through the default groups, and there is one called 'users' - if you hadn't suggested otherwise, that would have seemed the...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Change permissions on folder and sub-folders recursively using GUI

    Hi Morbius1,



    Probably right, but when you're starting out, you have no real way to discriminate, and multiple posts all seemed to say the same thing.




    Thanks for that, but as I...

    Hi collisionystm,




    I'm persevering, but it does feel like wading through treacle right now :-)

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Change permissions on folder and sub-folders recursively using GUI

    Hi nothingspecial,



    That's great, but it is what I tried (see my OP) with the exception of using sudo rather than gksudo which I hadn't heard of until this thread.

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Change permissions on folder and sub-folders recursively using GUI

    Hi Morbius1,



    Gone way over my head there :-)

    I searched the issue and found quite a few posts from people saying that Ubuntu cannot use permissions on NTFS - I had no reason to think...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Change permissions on folder and sub-folders recursively using GUI

    Hi Side,



    Thanks for that.

    Once advantage of being new to Linux is that I don't have too many bad habits yet!

    I'll just use
    gksudoif launching a GUI app.
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Change permissions on folder and sub-folders recursively using GUI

    Hi nothingspecial,




    Yep - apologies for my use of the wrong terminology.

    I definitely want to be able to recursively change the permissions to read+write (for example).

    I still...

    Hi nothingspecial,



    I'm at a bit of a loss to see how she could achieve that with such limited access as controlling the security on her own files.

    I have little idea (yet) how Ubuntu...

    Not in the two days since I first decided to try Linux :(

    Hi Mike,



    Just tried that (command prompt - sudo nautilus), but it still doesn't recurse.

    Is there another way to run a command as root?
