I'll give you as much information as I can, but now all file transfers from my computer to a computer with Internet are shut out (I have no Internet; my USB port is broken; I have trouble isntalling k3b, so a rewritable CD is out of the question, and now this...).
Go ahead, laugh if you want...
Anyway, I have trouble with changing permissions on my diskette, my only source of file transfer. I used to be the root, using four or five diskettes, but then decided to create my own account. Once into my account, I realized that I didn't have permissions to read/write a diskette. Then, from the command line, I logged in as root and typed the following (the diskette is mounted in /media/floppy, and for some reason I can only mount it in the GUI):
chmod 222 floppy/
chmod 444 floppy/
From what I remember, it said I didn't have permissions to change the file, even though I was the super-user (root). I then used the GUI for the root to change permissions, but they didn't apply. As the root, I didn't even have permissions to delete or add files to the diskette. My non-root account is in the "root" group, so I should have the same privilges as root. Does anyone know what's wrong?
Again, I'm sorry that I couldn't give you more information: I have no contact with another computer.
