16  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / permissions with usb flash stick on: April 14, 2007, 20:26:34 PM
I finally resorted to booting up in a Knoppix live CD to transfer my audio files from a Pardus partition on my laptop to a usgb flash stick and back to my desktop Pardus partition.

Of course I would have prefered to do this without resorting to Knoppix but couldn't find a way around the restrictive permissions inherent in Pardus.

This is a problem I've encountered in other Linux distrobutions. It seems like a hang over of Coldwar Unix operating systems that had multiple users and one central administrator. Appropriate for the time and context perhaps, but hopelessly outdated for desktop computers where there is rarely more than  one user.

When you think about it, why make its impossible (or very difficult) to copy files to a usb flash stick? What's the use of a flash stick if you can't write to it?

I hope Pardus developers will take this into account when configuring permissions for future releases - and bring this otherwise great operating system into the 21st century.

Well after re-examining the chown --help file i tried this:

pardus media # chown glasiad /media/sda1
chown: changing ownership of `/media/sda1': Read-only file system

'glasiad' is my home username

but now when I try to copy a fie to it I get:

Could not write to /media/sda1/(audio book) Michel Thomas

OK, now I 'own' it - but still can't write to it.

Did I use the konsole?

Just to open the konqueror in root

I know of the 'chown' command but am not to the point of knowing what arguments to get it to alter permission. I remember trying to memorize it ages ago but it's not very straight forward from my recollection.

Knoppix has a much more simple method with permissions. Right click and your simply given the options.

OK, I'm halfway to solving the problem - but only half way.

I right clicked on the desktop usb flash stick icon and realised that I hadn't 'mounted' it. So i mounted it and redid the su - konqueror suggestion. This time I get a permissions tab but it won't let change permissions with the box stating:

Could not change permissions for /media/sda1

Doesn't give a reason.

A bit like dealing with a bureaucrat!

Thanks for the response diskmusic.

I followed your directions. The problem is when I right click > properties on the usb stick icon I get 3 tabs to choose from:

general
meta info
mounting

none of which allows me to alter permissions.

However when I right click > properties on other partition icons the permissions tab present and I can alter permissions like you suggest.

Unfortunately that doesn't help me to make the usb stick accessable.

When I try to drag and copy files into the usb stick via the root konquerer I get the message:

kded: ERROR: mounting /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_uuid_E0FD_1813 returned
hal-storage-removable-mount refused uid 0

can anyone make sense of ths?

I have files I want to move from one computer to another and intended on using a usb flash stick to accomplish it.

However only the 'owner' is allowed to modify files on the flash stick.

Apparently I'm not the owner and am shut out.

Anyone know how I can get around this impasse?
22  Assistance / Software / kooka on: April 09, 2007, 21:25:11 PM
kooka starts up and recognises my scanner - no problem there.

But here doesn't seem to be anything that will induce the software to actually start a scan. Everything seems to be there except an option to actually 'scan'.

The help file just says to select 'scan' to scan - as if it were easy to find.

Anyone else run into this problem?
23  Assistance / Installing Pardus / language problem on: March 30, 2007, 23:57:23 PM
I don't think it was a problem with a previous installation or boot manager as the machine I was having problems with had just been reformatted with gparted.

This laptop which gave me no problems with Pardus has another linux system and a MS system previously installed along with an installed boot (grub type I think) loader.

I will do some more experiments tomorrow.

I have just experienced the same problem today. Pardus live and install CDs works fine on this laptop but when I tried the same live and install CDs on a machine at work it would only come up in Turkish. I tried both the English and German boot tabs with the same result - Turkish both in the live and install CD.

Must have something to do with the hardware - because I get two different results from the same CD.

Has anyone cracked this issue / bug yet?
25  General / Website building / Nvu on: March 21, 2007, 13:17:14 PM
For your information:

Nvu is a good open source easy to use website building application that is included in the pisi repository for easy download and installation.

I've only had Pardus on my laptop for one day but am very impressed!

Read a few mentions of Pardus yesterday on Distrowatch feedback which interested me enough to download the ISOs last night and burn a copy for breakfast.

Tried out the live version first and was simply amazed that it recognised and configured my wireless card with a couple of clicks (Acer 3000 - broadcom network card).

I've tried quite a number of Linux OS's on this laptop and had almost I've given up getting the wireless card to be recognised and work. (Though I did get it to work on one distro (LinuxMint) but not without considerable driver and firmware fishing and installing.)

But Pardus is amazing. It just 'works'. Everything I've tried so far works.

I thought at first the PiSi package manger GUI wasn't installed so updated the repositories and downloaded some packages with the terminal. I later dicovered the PiSi GUI in the 'Tasma' configuration GUI!

But all and all Pardus seems a well configured and solid distro. And I'm keeping it on this laptop.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this project.
