After editing sudoers, user still can not chmod

Hello everyone at the forum. I'm new here.

Thanks to these ( instructions I successfully managed to chroot user.

That was the first step I wanted to made.

After that I was faced with a problem in which the user can not use the chown and chmod. On further investigation I was able to edit the sudoers file that contains this:

# User privilege specification
root    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
chrooted-user    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
However, when users try to change permits, he still see this error:

What could be the problem?

How can someone create an actual THREAD without having a first post?!?

I'm not even going to try that...

OK either there was something wrong oryou edited, because I can see a post now.

Is this cygwin? As ondoho points out, that pop-up looks like Windows style.

Please respond with your system and what your final intended result is to be.

0) what frankbell wrote. a lot of it actually, starting with what system do you use?

1) the tutorial is 5 years old and refers to an outdated debian version.

2) what are you trying to achieve?

3) is that windows xp in your screenshot? i'm confused. how does that relate to the tutorial you linked?

4) what are you trying to achieve???
