Re: Lost privileges cannot create folders on eny partition exept home

If the /media/user (mount point) directory only has permission for root, that could explain why you would need sudo to make the folder

Code: Select all

$ cd /media/user
$ ls -ld
If it gives something like this: drwx------ 13 root root

then

Code: Select all

$ sudo chmod 777 /media/user
to change the directory permission.

Re: Lost privileges cannot create folders on eny partition exept home

OK. Can you make a folder there without using sudo?

$ cd /media/user/66e7d608-7389-4555-93a4-fbad7ee1f0ae
$ mkdir test

Re: Lost privileges cannot create folders on eny partition exept home

To let all users read, write and execute all files on the drive, try

Code: Select all

# cd /media/user/Data-Disk
# chmod -R -v 777 *

Re: Lost privileges cannot create folders on eny partition exept home

Launch your file manager from the terminal (I know don't like it, but it's useful :wink: ), try to create a folder and post the output.

If you dual boot, there have been people losing read/write access to shared NTFS partitions due to improper unmount by Windows.

Re: Upgrading to Bullseye Debian 11

Didn't you already try to upgrade the system and boot to a black screen? If you remove the old driver, the worst case scenario is that you won't be able to boot into Gnome on Debian Buster. Your installed driver will probably not work with Debian Bullseye. I suggest you remove your old driver now an...

Re: Remove automatically installed dependency cycles

I think the best way to test different desktop environments is by using

Code: Select all

Then just remove it with the same command.

Yes, remove Nvidia drivers version 418.197.02 and install the new one from the repository like I showed above.

Re: Upgrading to Bullseye Debian 11

Don't worry. We've all been there. Tell me, how did you install it? Bullseye's version is Version 460.73.01, so it hasn't been upgraded. Have you fully upgraded the system? Try uninstalling your current driver and run the following commands: # apt update # apt install nvidia-driver firmware-misc-non...

Firefox ESR isn't Internet Explorer. Of course you can remove it. Even packages that are part of larger metapackages can be removed with this combination (at least it worked last time I tried it :wink: ): # apt-get remove nameofpackage # aptitude keep-all This way you can remove a single package wit...

Re: Migration from Windows10 to Debian10

Will Debian 10 mount and recognize the two 3TB NTFS volumes? I definitely don’t want to risk losing all of that content. You can mount, read and write to NTFS. Not a problem. I can't remember of they are mounted automatically, but it's a trivial task to set everything up. Just make sure you have th...

Re: Debian 10.10 won't boot after auto-remove

Autoremove will remove all the files of a metapackage if you have uninstalled a single package of it. Therefore, always pay attention to what it wants to do. You learned that the hard way. As for your current system, you probably need to chroot your system from a livecd/liveusb and reinstall the pac...
