File permissions and transfer
I am trying to copy some files on my desktop to the following directory:
I found that I did not have permission to copy to the projects file.
I went through the following commands.
I opened up a terminal and logged in as superuser
I then pointed to the projects file and then modified the ownerships with chmod
Unfortunately this did not work.
Here are the ownerships if the file projects.
dr-xr-x--x 3 boinc boinc 4096 2008-04-18 07:00 projects
This return obviously says there are three files within projects but all I find is one named setiathome.berkeley.edu
Why the mismatch?
Could anybody help me out.
Once I have changed the ownerships in order that I can copy files to it will I be able to drag and drop or will I have to use the cp command?
