I am always struggling with Ubuntu 12.04 security measures! I'd like to get hold of the following:
a) How can I set the "executable" bit on a program or script? So far no attempt successful, no way.
b) I intend to mount an empty ext4 partition with mount point "/home/user/something". Logged as "user" I edited fstab with
gksu gedit /etc/fstab and set options with "user,auto,exec" etc.
The partition shows in directory but is unfortunately the branch is locked. When I open the partition on the side-bar it says its owner is "root" and I cannot modify it. Splendid!
How can I make this partition available to the user?
Thanks for advice on a difficult system!
