    Some assistance please... File permissions


    I have a user account of lets call it "X"
    I would like for X to log in as themselves and be able to edit a file in a folder in another users folder, but only that file.

    How can I do that?

    Thank you in advance...

    Only two ways I can think of at the moment:

    1. Access Control Lists

    Code:
    man acl
    man getfacl
    man setfacl
    2. Create a special group - assign group to file - give access to group.
