Im totally new to Linux and to the forum. Im using Ubuntu 12.04.1 as a way to boot a failing hard drive on a Macbook Pro. I hope to be able to use the Ubuntu interface to backup some important files on the old hard drive before installing a new one.
how can i set 775 permission for all newly created files and folders.
when i give chmod -R 775 /data permission is getting to all files and folders. but when i create a folder i wont get that permission. i want this 755 permission should be permanent for all old and newly create files
My Macbook Pro hard drive is not working and I don't have a backup cd. I installed Ubuntu to see if I could access my files. I can see the folders but when I attempt to open them, I get a message that I do not have permission to view them.
I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. My hard drives usually comes as: sda, with 'sudo blkid' and if I plug-in any USB drive, they comes as: sdb, sdc etc; after sda. That's fine!!!
But problem arises after I restart my laptop with connecting those USB drives. They alter and comes first and hard drive goes to the end, like: 'sudo blkid' shows, sda, sdb for USB drives and sdc for hard drives.
