I have Ubuntu (Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS) running in a VMware Fusion VM, and I'm sharing my Mac's home directory using Fusion's sharing feature. I've created a subdirectory in my home directory and used the Finder's Get Info (and "Apply to Enclosed Items") to give read & write access to "Everyone". But when I (or a program) create a sub-subdirectory in Ubuntu, I (in Ubuntu) don't get read access:
drwxr-xr-x 1 1818155768 302979775 68 2009-10-26 14:20 temp
(This is a line from an
ls -l in my VM, after
Is it possible to configure the VM (or the Linux guest or the Max OS X host) so directories are created with write access? How?
Update: I created a /temp directory on my Mac and shared it in Fusion with read & write permission. Then I did the following:
$ cd /mnt/hgfs/temp/ $ ls $ mkdir foo $ ls -l total 1 drwxr-xr-x 1 1818155768 80 68 2009-10-27 17:21 foo
As you can see,
foo was created in the (Ubuntu) VM, but the VM doesn't have write access.
