how to apply "chmod g+r" permissions to a deep file and directory structure


Hi, I need to apply "chmod g+r" to a deep file and directory structure, these files are part of a shared directory that has to be accesible to several users, I found that some files can't be read by the users because the permissions.

My questions are:
1. is there a fast way to apply this file permissions change to all structure? because if I do chmod g+r * only applies to the files and directory that I'm currently viewing, but the files that are inside the directories still have the previous permissions, so, i have to go directory by directory applying this change.

2. is possible to set in my linux, that all files that are created or pasted inside of a directory have a specific file permissions, for example ugo+rw?

All the best

1) 'chmod -R' should do the trick
2) As long as I know it's impossible. If you make your directory setgid, then all files created inside will be with gid of this directory.
