accidentally changed permissions on home folder
 
And now I can't see it, nor can I see the files on my desktop. I can't access them through the terminal either. Is there anyway I can reverse this?

be the root
and then change the permission.

How do you change the permission from root?

ag2uki 05-14-2005 01:48 AM

you can use 'chmod' command

for example:
# chmod 777 [your_folder]
:) :rolleyes:

Thank you, Agus.

I think I may have found an interesting loophole though. I went to save an attachment from my e-mail, and in the window that came up to select directory - I could see my locked folders. I simply right clicked them and took off the permissions. :D

You're welcome!

I wish you change your signature to be like this...

Not after the hell Linux has put me through over the last 3 weeks. NO other operating system has EVER given me so much crap.
