Hi all, I keep getting this message "error setting permissions function not implemented" every time I copy files from my harddrive to my USB stick. It is formated using the exFAT filesystem. It works fine in Linux the file copies but that message always pops up I click yes to all then resumes the copy. Is there a way to fix that? If I remember, in Lite v1.0.6 exFAT worked without that error message. Oh one more thing is there a way to add another entry in the right click context menu when you click on a file? I want to add the move to folder command it has the copy command but also would love the move to command something like windows 7 has .

Thanks.

Hello T1125P.

I'm going to attempt to help with this part of your question.

These directions should be LL version independent but keep in mind I'm doing this from LL108/64.

To add an entry to the right click menu
File manager (Thunar) > Edit > Configure custom actions

Here's an example of how to add a file encryption/decryption entry to the right click menu
LL Manual > Software Tab > File Encryption or click this link

Hi thank you. I went ahead and added that example to my context menu, that should come in handy as well.

I don't have an answer yet on this because I'm not entirely sure what's going on.  Would like to try testing something similar to whatever you are doing to see if I can reproduce the error and try figuring out what's going wrong.

Can you go into more detail on when this message pops up.  How are you doing the copying operation?  Just copy/paste with your mouse?  Or are you using some GUI program or terminal command?  Also, what types of files are you having problems copying?  Are they files from your home directory or are they system files?  Does it happen on every type of copy operation to the USB, or only when copying certain files?


P.s.
If you think a screenshot will help explain things better, go ahead and post that for us to see.

Hi thank you gold_finger, what I will do is what you suggested. I will take a picture and attach it here the next time that error pops up when I'm copying files. I will try it tonight and post my results here.

Have a look at second post down on this thread for solution:  http://askubuntu.com/questions/491373/14-04-trying-to-install-google-talkplugin-error.

If you are not sure how to implement first part of that solution, open a Terminal and enter these two commands (one line at a time):

Code: [Select]
cd /etc/apt
ls

Then copy/paste the output from terminal back here for us to look at.  (See here for how to do that.)

So you know what commands do:
*  first line changes directory (cd) to /etc/apt
*  second line just lists (ls) the things in that directory


P.s.  For future reference, it's always best to start a new post of your own rather than adding to someone else's -- especially when the problems are different.  Your post will get looked at by more people when it's on its own and the post of the other person will not get sidetracked onto someone else's problem.

Hello, here is the error I am receiving when copying files to my USB stick. Just simple copy and paste, it even comes up with the send to command in the context menu. Here is the link to my error:

Never ran into that myself, because have never had anything formatted as exfat.  Don't have problems with mine formatted as FAT32.

Did quick search and found couple of posts saying you need to install a couple of extra packages to handle exfat files.

Menu -> System -> Install/Remove Software will open the Synaptic Package Manager.  Type "exfat" into the search box and you will see two packages show up.  Install them both by clicking the box next to each and selecting "Mark for installation"; then hit "Apply" button along top.  The packages you need are shown in screenshot below.



NOTE:  If USB copying doesn't work right after installing those, reboot the computer and try again.  It may need you to do that for those changes to take effect.  It should work fine after that.

Hi, thanks a lot I will try that right now.  Thing is with FAT32 you can't copy files larger than 4GB. It's a limitation with that file format. exFAT is like NTFS no issues. exFAT is mostly for USB, SD, etc. NTFS for harddrive's

OK well I guess I had it already installed I didn't know haha . I did that doing commands in the terminal searching for exFAT in Linux. Now I see a 3rd exFAT entry. When I try to install it, it gave me this error:
http://s4.postimg.org/ux3oqo4sd/Install_Error.png

Thing is the file's copy to my USB stick, it's just that error message that always pops up. Weird thing is when I had v1.0.6 of Linux Lite it didn't do it.  I'll try to keeo searching if there is another way to get rid of that error screen.
