I’m using the EmEditor to edit the Linux files (Linux drives are mapped to Windows). Each time I’m saving the edited file, its mode is being changed to the ‘executable’ one…
So, I would not like the EmEditor will change the files mode @Linux. What settings should I do in order to change this behavior of the EmEditor?
Thank you!August 22, 2013 at 4:16 pm #11282
I am not sure what you mean by ‘executable”. Can you explain more? If you use backup settings in the Configuration Properties, maybe you might want to disable the backup, and see if this can help.

Okay, as for the Unix/Linux files, they have the readable/writable/executable attributes. Files or example, when I do a listing of the files, I can see these attribute:
So, when I map a linux drive to windows and use EmEditor to edit the files, after I save the files they become ‘executable’ (see the examples below):
BEFORE ‘SAVE’ command in EmEditor:
\%> ls -al
where ‘r’ is for ‘readable’
where ‘w’ is for ‘writable’
AFTER ‘SAVE’ command in EmEditor:
\%> ls -al
where ‘x’ is for ‘executable’
So, I’d like the EmEditor WILL NOT CHANGE ATTRIBUTES of the files.
Hopefully you caught my point…

BTW, I tried to disable the ‘BackUp’ option in the ‘Configuration Properties’ – it doesn’t help.August 25, 2013 at 9:03 am #11298
I don’t think the Windows side can do anything about it, the SMB protocol does not contain any information about UNIX-style attributes.
Check your Samba settings for the share you’re using and set the create mask option to 0644 (or whatever you like).August 25, 2013 at 10:08 am #11299
“Check your Samba settings for the share you’re using and set the create mask option to 0644 (or whatever you like)” – how can I do so?August 25, 2013 at 11:40 am #11300
Somewhere in system settings, their names and locations are different in different Linux distributions.
You could try direct editing of /etc/samba/smb.conf (root permissions are required). There you find a section named like your share name (e.g. if in Windows you disk is mapped to machine_nameMyShare, then you look for the section [MyShare] in smb.conf). Within this section, if there is create mask option already, just modify its value to 0644. Otherwise append a new line with this option:
create mask = 0644
(space within “create mask” is not a typo!). Save the file and restart the Samba service. The way to do it, again, depends on your Linux system, I’d try the command
(again, with root permissions), or simply reboot the machine.August 25, 2013 at 12:30 pm #11301
okay, thank you, but I don’t have ROOT/ADMIN rights to change these files …
