umask fails to apply to vfat/ntfs partitions

Has anyone else found that umask settings do not apply as they should? Setting umask to 002 or 0002 results in all files having the executable bit enabled. However, if I manually set the fmask/dmask values (ex: fmask=113,dmask=002) it works fine. --thayer 16:40, 5 May 2010 (EDT)

usbtiny extra udev rule?

In the udev rules for usbtiny, there are 2 rules listed. Howver, adding the second one to my udev rules resulted in me not an "rc=-1" communication error when I tried to use my usbtiny. When I commented out this rule:

"SBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="16c0", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0479", GROUP="users", MODE="0666"

everything worked fine. Not sure what the root of the issue is, but this rule makes the usbtiny programer unusable. -- Ssalenik (talk) 04:09, 6 March 2012‎

Extract the UDisks into new article

As UDev is more generic than just disk mounting subsystem, I propose to extract the UDisks part into its own page to keep things simple and clear. Lux (talk) 19:32, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Agreed 100%. Sambul13 09.40, 03 September 2012 (UTC)

About udev rules

udevadm info -a -n [device name]


udevadm info -a -p $(udevadm info -q path -n [device name])

gives the same output but the latter is recommended by some Khampf (talk) 20:57, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Use of 'uaccess' instead of GROUP and MODE?

Bug openobex - relies on non-existing group plugdev, conflict with systemd made me rethink the rules I have been using for Logitech_Unifying_Receiver.

Currently, the following rule is taught to the user:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1781", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0c9f", GROUP="users", MODE="0666"

What about changing it to:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1781", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0c9f", TAG+="uaccess"

As a developer note, Ubuntu versions before 13.04 Raring needs TAG+="udev-acl" instead of uaccess. For compatibility with modern and legacy systems:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1781", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0c9f", TAG+="uaccess", TAG+="udev-acl"
