External devices not accessable for uploads or downloads

Postby Uppity » Fri Nov 10, 2017 11:32 pm

I had to save an extension output to an internal device, then transfer to the external device.
Likewise, I had to save pictures to the internal device, before I could upload to CraigsList.

The error message:
Could not read the contents of c7c262b1-413f-4972-ba6c-6f6e2c18eb16
This is a 64 GB SSD card.

I'm running Linux Mint 17.3, Cinnamon.

Is this something I can change? I updated Pale Moon yesterday.
It seems to be a recent implementation - in the last month or 2.
I'm running Linux Mint 17.3, Cinnamon.

First question; can you open a terminal and run "ls -al" on the directory the card is mounted on? What is the output?

Hi, Walter.
I had to think for a minute, how to change directories... :mrgreen:

I removed a couple of items that clearly were not pertinent.
I'm also listed as the owner, in the properties, to read, write and execute.

Code: Select all

$ ls -al

Since your access to the card is tightly restricted to your user account only, Pale Moon may not have access to it if it's running under ANY other (e.g. system) account. Please verify which account Pale Moon is running under and adjust file/dir permissions accordingly on the card if it's not your user account (e.g. by setting group permissions and making Pale Moon a member of that group).

The message "Could not read the contents of c7c262b1-413f-4972-ba6c-6f6e2c18eb16" is interesting. What is the name of the directory? Does it have any weird characters or control characters in the name?

Moonchild, I just added palemoon to Groups, since it was not there.
That surprised me, for some reason.

I just added one picture to a CraigsList posting and attached one picture to an email. Both of them worked.

Hopefully...

For the record, if the problem recurs...

I failed to mention that I start palemoon from an icon on the left side of the systray, with the command:

Code: Select all

firejail palemoon %u.


There are no special characters in the name:

Code: Select all

/media/gt/BackUp_64

Code: Select all

Root owns /usr/bin/firejail
Root owns /opt/palemoon/palemoon


Thank you, Moonchild and Walter Dnes.
I appreciate your input and have my fingers crossed.

Hmmm, that might have been the problem. What user does Firejail run Pale Monn as? To find out, launch Pale Moon from Firejail, then switch to a terminal and type in ps -ef | grep palemoon The username will be at the far left. Note that the "grep palemoon" command will hit a false positive on itself.

Looks good, to me, Walter.

Code: Select all

$ ps -ef | grep palemoon
gt        2676     1  0 14:08 ?        00:00:00 firejail palemoon
gt        2678  2676  0 14:08 ?        00:00:00 firejail palemoon
gt        2681  2678 13 14:08 ?        00:38:34 palemoon
gt       17763 17745  0 18:51 pts/2    00:00:00 grep --colour=auto palemoon


I am having self doubts about attaching a picture to email.
I'll try that again, by tomorrow.

Thanks.
