on save file set to no other access

Postby pburns001 » Wed Nov 28, 2018 8:09 pm

Hi, I'm running Lyx on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS; every time I save a file during editing the file permissions are changed to 600 octal even though the original file permissions were 644. This is creating problems for my backup software; anyone have an idea?

welcome to the forum!

Perhaps add a chmod 644 * command to the backup script, or to a cron job that runs every day. At least I'm not aware of a LyX feature for that setting.
