Re: [hylafax-users] What user does FaxNotify run under?

Thanks all for putting me on the right track. Both helped but Aidan solved my chown issue. Found some information, on the Hylafax site, about using sudo to solve the problem with changing ownership.

Everything is now working great.

Again, thanks all.

These scripts need to move, delete and change owner on files in these folders. I'm having a problem inside the scripts in that I can't execute any rm, chmod or chown commands without getting a either a "Permission denied or Operation not permitted" error. If I know the user FaxNotify is running under it may explain why I'm having a problem.

$SPOOL/bin/notify (the default one w/ HylaFAX processes FaxNotify) is
run by faxq, as the uucp user that faxq by default normally running

Linux (like many unixes) doesn't allow a user to "give away" file
ownership. If you want a file to be owned by a non-uucp user, you'll
either need to make a special suid program to do that change for you,
or move queue the file somewhere to have a root-running job to change
