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?

How do you change the permission from root?

you can use 'chmod' command

for example:
# chmod 777 [your_folder]

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.
