Ubuntu 12.04, and im trying to delete it using the GUI and mostly chmod and chown commands with different permissions settings.... the weird thing is all of this workng just fine yesterday and magically now my permissions are all over the place.. any idea on why any new download in terminal has a lock on it and wont let me delete?
ERROR: Unable to trash files, permission denied.
ls-l shows my username as owner of everything except the new directores that are created when I download they are owned by root, so this is only happening when new things are being downloaded through terminal
