Desktop icon not safe (missing +x ) on cmake deb file

Gonzalo Garramuño
Hi,

I had a program which I compile with cmake.  This program was on an NTFS
partition with permissions: defaults.  This meant all files were owned
by root with 777 permissions.   This worked fine but it was not secure
and created problems with the postrm/posinst scripts.

Recently I tried changing my fstab to mount the partition with user and
permissions,like:

UUID=98222A3D222A20AC  /media/gga/Datos ntfs-3g
auto,users,permissions,exec 0 0

Now, when I package my application into a deb file, it works.  I get:

-rw-r--r-- 1 gga gga 24M mar 19 14:55 mrViewer-v3.5.4-Linux-64.deb

However upon installation of the deb file under root, I get an icon in
the desktop that is not executable. The desktop file that gets created
from a desktop.in config file, which has permissions like:

-rwxrwxrwx 1 gga root 1,2K feb 21 12:14 mrViewer.desktop.in

and the resulting .desktop file has permissions like:

-rwxrwxrwx 1 gga root 1,2K mar 14 09:36 mrViewer-v3.5.4.desktop

So it should be executable and it should get installed with same
permissions.   However, this does not work.

I am at a loss on what to try.  Any help is appreciated.

I figured it out.  For reference, I had to change the fstab file to:

UUID=98222A3D222A20AC  /media/gga/Datos ntfs-3g
auto,users,permissions,exec,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=022 0 0

Hi,

Desktop files and icons do not need any execute permissions. They are only data files. The executable that the desktop file points to must be executable, though. To mount the NTFS partition as a user, use either pmount or your desktop mount utility.

OTOH, you make your life unusual hard by using NTFS on Linux for more than pure data storage.
