ACLs and marking doc read only

view full story

http://www.linuxforums.org – Hello All I have a network setup of Windows client PCs and an Ubuntu server. The home directory on the Ubuntu server contains users personal directories as well as a shared directory which all users of the server have access to. I have ACLs in place to ensure that only those with the correct permissions can read, modify or open a file. The problem is that when a user sets a document to read-only in the shared directory it doesnt work (using their windows PC, and clickin the right mouse button on the document, and setting the attribute to read-only in the properties menu) as the document doesn not get marked as this! There are also no error messages. However if a documnet gets marked as read only in their own directories all works fine! Any ideas why this may be???... Many thanks in advance! t. (HowTos)
