I'm using the Ubuntu bash on Windows 10(v1804) and am experiencing a problem with the
chown command. I'm trying to change the ownership of a file I created on my desktop with the following path:
sudo -i I switch to the root user and navigate to the mentioned path and run
chown -v user1 filecat.txt
after which I get this message confirming the ownership change:
changed ownership of 'filecat.txt' from amar to user1
However, when I run
ls -l filecat.txt it does not show any change in user. It's still the same user which created the file.
Anyone have any idea what might be the problem? I've been searching online but finding nothing similar so here I am asking the question myself.
This is the full output of the command line mentioned in the comments.
$ ls -l filecat.txt; chown user1 filecat.txt; ls -l filecat.txt -rwxrwxrwx 1 amar amar 2054 Jul 8 20:44 filecat.txt -rwxrwxrwx 1 amar amar 2054 Jul 8 20:44 filecat.txt
The file system I'm using is NTFS on both of my partitions.
lsblk results in the following output
lsblk: failed to access sysfs directory: /sys/dev/block: No such file or directory
The answer provided in the linked question suggested editing a certain line in the
etc/fstab file. My
etc/fstab file contains only the following line
LABEL=cloudimg-rootfs / ext4 defaults 0 0
