so the chmod +x part is right... right?
will that +x ( = access ? ) stay on that file or folder forever? i hate doing that stuff. i sish i could take it off redhat.
well only if you use "su -" does it bring you back to your root's home directory because the "-" opens up a brand new shell with root's profile.
i can't remember if xmms skins are archived or not. if they're archived and you're in the xmms skins directory, then just add the "*" wildcard after that chmod command:
chmod +x *
if the skin files in Skins are directories, i'd do somthing more like this:
chmod -R +x /usr/share/xmms/Skins
which will enable exec priveledges on the Skins directory and every file and subdirectory in the Skins directory.
