dxsetacl - Graphical interface for setting the ACL on a file or directory
The name of the file or directory to operate on.
The regular X resources can be supplied to dxsetacl on the command
The dxsetacl command provides a graphical interface for examining and set-
ting file access control lists (ACLs).
If a path is specified on the command line, the file system object
represented by path is used as the target of the command. In addition,
there is a Find Object area on the main dialog box. A path may be typed in,
or located by browsing the file system. A file reference may be dragged
from a CDE application, such as the File Manager, and dropped on the Find
Object area. Once an object is selected, its full path name, object type,
owner, and group are displayed along with the ACL.
The ACL is displayed, one entry per line, in a list widget. Clicking on an
entry selects it. Double clicking on an entry or selecting the Change
Entry button brings up a dialog that allows the fields of the entry to be
modified. Clicking on the Delete Entry button removes the entry. The own-
ing user, owning group, and other user entries may be modified but not
deleted. (See acl(4) for more information.) The New Entry button may be
used to create a new group or user entry.
If the object is a regular file, device special file, or UNIX domain
socket, it only has an access ACL. If the object is a directory, it has an
access ACL, a default access ACL, and a default directory ACL. Which ACL of
a directory is being edited may be selected with a radio button.
The dxsetacl command will show and set ACLs on file system objects,
regardless of whether ACLs are used by the system for access deci-
sions. The sysman secconfig utility is used to enable ACL checking.
Commands: X(1X), secconfig(8)
