Can anyone help me sort this out please? lol I've changed the permissions thinking I was granting access to myself as a user to /usr/share/mdk/backgrounds/, but I've locked myself out from most other things in the process.
Now I can only get to my own folder /home/michael. If I try the up button to go to /home, it tells me "Unable to enter file:/home/ You do not have access rights to this location."
What I was trying to do was grant rights to /usr/share/mdk/backgrounds/ so that I could copy some wallpapers over so I added my own rule, but deleted it afterwards.
What are the usual groups for a normal user? I am a member of the "michael" group at the moment.
I've just reinstalled Mandrake 10 after trying redhat so my home location in Konqueror is still set to file:/usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html
However, when I load it, I now get this:
An error occurred while loading file:/usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html:
Access denied to /usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html
How can I restore the permissions?
Security level is set to highest. I did that because I'm setting up a webserver etc. If I drop that to normal or whatever I can get back to that page, but I don't want to alter the security level if I can help it.
What a muppet I am! :o :D
into a terminal, type:
606 = rw permissions for user and others
enter root passwd:
chmod 606 /backgrounds
1st number = permission for user
2nd number = permission for group
3rd number = permission for other
0 = block
4 = read
6 = read + write
7 = read + write + execute
not dont use the 7 if theres no programs to be run in that directory, best is to use 6.
Thank you very much for your help. :)
I should really buy myself a dummies guide to Linux or something! :oops: :D
