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?
