    My file manager is nautilus. I think the KDE distros have something similar. I access my file manager from a menu, but if the program is somewhere on your machine, try

    nautilus --no-desktop --browser

    from a terminal.

    Some KDE equivalents are dolphin and Konqueror

    Also, it doesn't look like you have a Folder named trikes, just a file trikes.txt. I'm hunting with birdshot here... scatter-pattern answers

    Sorry that file path is wrong. Its /var/www There is nothing in the root. aside from the desktop and a few random files. so ok... I have nautilus open and have found my file. the folder and the file are shared to root and users. mfitzpatrick is a member of users/root/admin now. Primary is root. The owner of the file is mfitzpatrick. aside from right clicking the file and choosing properties is another way to share this file that i missed? I shared the file out that way before.

    I have yet to find a way to share this file.... I have edited the permissions tab but I do not have any options anywhere for sharing not when I right click the file/folder or in the properties for the file/folder.

    ***** I do have a tab called 'Local Net Sharing' When I click on the tab It has a message that says ' Error running 'filesharelist'. check if installed and in $PATH or /usr/sbin.' *****

    Do a Google search on "linux var folder". This folder is not usually shared over a network. Who knew?

    Ok.... So if I move that file to a difffernent folder it should work? Ill be able to write to it? so something like... /usr/share should be safe... Thanks for the heads up on the VAR folder!

    I get the same error message on the local net sharing. I looked in the /usr/bin and the filesharing file is not there.

    What's wrong with having a directory under /home/yourname ? I have a large number of folders inside my /home/steve/ directory. If you don't like that, the /media directory seems to be an OK place to put stuff. Basic question... do you "mkdir" to create completely empty directories? And chown them?

    (I may be guilty of using/misusing the terms directory/folder. )
