I saw that the location Kolibri accesses files from can be changed here. I am trying to set it so I can read directly from the flash drive, as then I do not need to transfer all the data (this may change in further application, but for testing it would be very convenient). Currently the issue I come across
PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied. If anyone has tried this or come across the same error and found a solution that would be great.
- Kolibri version 0.15.1
- Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon
Thank you for your interest in Kolibri!
By what method have you installed Kolibri? Depending on your installation method, it’s possible the system user running Kolibri doesn’t have permission to read the USB drive.
You may check which user is running Kolibri by executing
ps -eo uname,cmd | grep kolibri in a terminal. Below is an example, where I’m running the Kolibri PEX file to illustrate this:
$ ps -eo uname,cmd | grep kolibri
blaine python /home/blaine/Downloads/kolibri-0.15.1.pex start --foreground
blaine grep --color=auto kolibri
In this case, my system user
blaine is executing the Kolibri PEX file.
