Directories and files that a program using with permission.

Postby hack3rcon » 2020-10-06 16:20

Hello,
When I install a program then how can I find which directories and files using with that program and in which parts of my system that program have permission and what kind of permission?

Thank you.

Man pages for each program would be best option, if that does not give the answer, install source and study that.

To see permissions
Code: Select all
ls -l

Did you study the source code of Firefox or any browsers that you are using?
In Android, when you install an application and run it then Android ask you about the permissions that application needed. Anything similar for Linux?

@OP: please continue your old thread rather than create new ones on the same subject.

Thread locked.
