/dev/sda PERMISSION DENIED[SOLVED]

Postby NM5TF on Sat Sep 28, 2013 8:49 am

trying to display HDDTEMP in conky using following code:

Code: Select all
${execi 10 hddtemp -n /dev/sda}


no temp is displayed in conky...the error msg says 'dev/sda open permission denied'

when running HDDTEMP in terminal I must use sudo to see the data....

is there a way to disable this so conky will display the data ???

I never had to do this in conky under Ubuntu 12.04.3....I just called HDDTEMP & it worked...

anyone ???

found the answer in the Ubuntu forums....

Code: Select all
sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp


at least over there someone usually answers....
