thank you for insisting on the umask issue. I appreciate your
willingness to help - and I might need your help:
I checked this morning:
I am user "martin", my group is "users"
All my trainees are also in group "users", so nothing fancy there.
My present umask is "0022", so I believe that any file that I create (or
Scribus running under my login) should receive rights like this:
Now I created a fresh test folder for output, throw my explorer and it
which I believe is very good.
Then I took some Scribus document and had it collected-for-output (with
fonts and with compression) into this fresh, empty folder. Result:
The scribus file .sla.gz received
which would work fine for our team-workflow.
But, all the other files (.png and .ttf) did receive
which is exactly the problem, why I opened this thread.
So I double-checked: Where did get Scribus get these photos and those fonts:
They were all readily assembled in the previous output-folder. And there
I had manually fixed the rights for all files to
so I believe there is not a problem of "inheriting too limited rights".
Somehow in the process of collecting-for-output either Scribus or the OS
or some other agent (who?) is assigning two different levels of rights.
And one of those feels like a bug or an unhelpful feature.
Peter, if you could help me further please, to localize, where exactly
those rights are assigned (almost against what my user-umask prescribes)
then I might be able to fix it - and get my whole team into a smooth
If you need further details from my system, I am available.
For all: I am in Africa, remember. So please do not be upset, if I
cannot respond right-away to new posts or questions. Sometimes it is the
internet or power, mostly I am overcharged this December (because we
need to launch this magazine but also prepare a launch of an online
dictionary and several public meetings and the calendar for 2014...).
But I hope to be in the office all week from Mon to Fri(Sat).
