You should change file or folder permission to 777

The numbers you enter when using chmod refer to the rwx permissions. Each permission has a number associated with it, and adding these numbers together tells you what permissions have been given to the file/directory. r=4, w=2, x=1. By using 755, you've given full permissions to the owner and read and execute permissions to the owner's group and other users (7=rwx, 5=rx).

Since this will be a globally writable directory, also set the sticky bit:
sudo chmod ugo=rwxt /home/Everyone
