i don't recall having done anything in the past week that would...

then it occurred to me. ls -l showed that all three were created as being owned by and in the root group. a quick sudo chown fixed that, but i thought it might be helpful to leave a note here in case anyone else stumbles into that problem

if i recall correctly, i was registered there. i think i started with 4.4 (if there was such a thing) about 18 months ago, but at the time had very limited internet access. it wasn't until i borked my 4.5 install and decided to get 5 that i checked in and found the forum was gone. originally i checked out the subreddit, but found this space to be more active

i used chown to change the owner. because they were originally root, i had to use sudo. so it was:

Code:
sudo chown -hR user:user Documents Public Templates
where user was my username so you would put your own in there

Thanks for telling us what to enter into terminal.

But, please give the path to the directory that one must first be in, to do this.
As Hazel advised, I'm looking at /usr/share/icons, but between directories and individual files, there are 31 entries in this location! None of the names give me a clue.

Help, please

Unhappy To clarify my problem, does this help?

Perhaps this will help someone to help me, as to why I can't locate these folders:

Stefan said to first run this line in terminal:

I didn't do this because I first checked with Synaptic and its box was solid green, i.e, it's already installed.

xdg-user-dirs-update
I did do this, and the terminal prompt returned without errors, almost instantly.

? Yes, but where are they? Did I fail to create them?
