After executing that command, it shows,
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 48 2005-01-28 16:28 /local1
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 256 2005-01-28 14:22 /local2
drwxrwxr-x 5 root root 120 2005-01-28 18:45 /local3
by the way, an update:
somehow, I have now gained a full access to local3 and its only subdirectory: downloads.
I don't really know what triggered it. maybe rebooting? but I thought I had tried it after a reboot and still it did not work?
I am getting confused.
also, is it possible to create "shortcuts" to the local3 on my desktop?
Edit: I still can't copy/paste into local1 and local2 directories. I'll chmod 775 to them. and see what happens since I am in the group of "root." and if i'd have to reboot to have the new permissions taken effect.
Edit2: yes! it worked without rebooting!
I have no idea why I had so much trouble with this...
now I am gonna try to create shortcuts on my desktop.
