Question Ubuntu with Floola for Ipod - cannot run Floola, permissions are "stuck"


The title pretty much says it all. On the Floola website, it says that to run the program, changing the permissions might be necessary, so I did that as both me and sudo, and they change right back. Doing it with the file manager, you see it "unclick" as soon as you "click" making files executable.

Is this a problem with Floola, the iPod, both? Ubuntu?

I had no problem running the iPod under Windows with either iTunes, or Floola.

I can "see" everything and probably do everything fine with Banshee, but I like Floola better, because I don't have to keep my music on my computer.

Any ideas, folks?

May be an ownership issue with the permissions... Who "owns" the files that you downloaded? And what permissions does it really need? I'm at work, so I can't currently look at the files themselves.

Okay, sorry for the late reply, but for some reason the ipod has stopped automounting (after some update, and I don't remember which). I've been trying to get it to "see" the ipod but it hasn't been working.

Okay, to my surprise the darn thing mounted just out of the blue today. *sigh of relief*
Okay, so back to business. (Listen Up is the name of my ipod)

charlie@linuxbox:/media/LISTEN UP/Floola-linux$ ls -l

-rw-r--r-- 1 charlie charlie 29009418 2011-12-26 08:22 Floola

-rw-r--r-- 1 charlie charlie 779 2007-08-02 09:59 Readme.txt
And this is what happens when I try to change the permissions:
Quote:
charlie@linuxbox:/media/LISTEN UP/Floola-linux$ sudo chmod +x Floola
charlie@linuxbox:/media/LISTEN UP/Floola-linux$ ls -l
total 28368
-rw-r--r-- 1 charlie charlie 29009418 2011-12-26 08:22 Floola
drwx------ 2 charlie charlie 16384 2012-02-19 01:41 Floola Libs
-rw-r--r-- 1 charlie charlie 779 2007-08-02 09:59 Readme.txt
And do show what it's really doing...
Quote:
charlie@linuxbox:/media/LISTEN UP/Floola-linux$ sudo chmod -v +x Floola
mode of `Floola' changed to 0755 (rwxr-xr-x)
charlie@linuxbox:/media/LISTEN UP/Floola-linux$ ls -l
total 28368
-rw-r--r-- 1 charlie charlie 29009418 2011-12-26 08:22 Floola

-rw-r--r-- 1 charlie charlie 779 2007-08-02 09:59 Readme.txt
And my fstab:
Quote:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation

# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
