Posted 11-02-2011 at 07:31 PM by skinutter

Being a Linux newbym, seems to take me 3 times as long to install stuff on Linux than it did on Windows --arghhh.

I went to the Adobe site and downloaded the package, but could not find instructions how to do that.

HOWTO: Change umask, permissions, ownership etc. of a folder using bindfs

Posted 11-01-2011 at 04:43 PM by kribor

I find myself coming back to a situation where I want to be able to control who files should be created as (user or group) and which permissions the files should have in a specific folder.

For example I have a linux server with a shared music directory for people in the household that is shared using samba and depending on whether how clients connect the files/folders they create get a bunch of different permissions, groups etc.. Getting tired of configuring of trying to configure...

adding non-repository deb packages to apt

Create a repository (it can be located anywhere):
Code:
mkdir /var/cache/apt/altdeb
Copy the relevant deb files to that place. Then generate a package index:
Code:
dpkg-scanpackages /var/cache/apt/altdeb /dev/null | gzip >/var/cache/apt/altdeb/Packages.gz
