Post permissions after sudoer add


i'm using ubuntu 8.04 LTS and I have placed a second user in the sudoers file, aas well as changed the permissions as needed to every folder under filesystem (except subfolders) and I have two questions, one is two parted:

1) how can I change folder permissions recursively so I don't have to enter in and change the permissions for sub folders.

2) when i cut and paste a file, to place it into a directory I have gotten two messages, one is permission denied although I'm using sudo privledges and have changed the permissions to the folder, that was not actually a paste but just by drag and drop, and when I tried cut and paste, the paste option is whited out over the destination folder. what can i do to address these large annoyances?

1. man chmod - change modes (permissions)

2. show us the filenames and permissions eg

ls -l filename

Though you put a user in sudoers file, you need to use sudo command when you need special privileges to perform admin tasks. Hence just putting the user in the file will not solve the purpose.
You can change the permissions recurssively by using -R option. Though man chmod should give you this.
