I dont want to use microsoft products like exFAT. I only use free software devices running recent linux and the people i deal with also do that. I would like to not have to use exFAT for every day use with other linux users.
I am using flash-drives for file transfer. Thus i would like to use F2FS.
Issue: I cant get the user right management disabled. It should be disabled by default and NOT require ANY modifications to the computers its been used later on. With other words: Like exFAT.
Simple reason: User right management on a usb pendrive breaks completely the usability. No one is expecting this on a usb pendrive and the linux users i have to deal with cant work that out with their normal linux installations. The gui simply gray out the ability to delete or modify a file and the users are lost and dont know what to do.
I cant use FAT32 because files with bigger size then 4GB have to work fine.
What solution does exist? If possible with F2FS as file system.
assuming there are no ACLs in place, will get you to an equivalently insecure state as FAT
You could also take advantage of ACLs, which I believe trump POSIX permissions in both directions. You'd have to play with it a bit as I've never had a good reason to undo POSIX file permissions. At least in my opinion, anyone playing around on Linux-based systems already should know how to use sudo.
This seems to work. I am now able to delete and rename files that have been copied over from a different machine or by root. One linux os show for some reason in the gui file manager a closed lock symbol for files that have owner root but i can still modify the files.
I tested this on ext4 and f2fs and its the same.
