Need help with a couple things


I'm running BLAG a version of RH 9. It comes with a bunch of multimedia software preinstalled. Its what I've been looking for on my quest to ditch windblows. Anyway I'm having trouble with is finding the extra software ie: mpeg tools and the such. They are listed in synaptic as being installed but I for the life of me can not find where to start them or find them listed anywhere in the menu.
The other problem I have is the files that I transfered from a backup disc all ahve the non-writable symbol on them. I tried the command chmod 700,770,777 but all that is released is the video folder itself the files inside video are then marked with the non write symbol.
All help would be appreciated, Hollywood

if you want all those files and folders to have all permissions, cd into that folder and try chmod * 777 (or it think chmod ./* will also work)

Dude... man pages are so helpful if your unsure..

chmod -R 777 /<directory or files>
