chown -R user1:COMMON /home/user1

local_umask=0002
file_open_mode=0777

# make sure schroot.conf has this in it
groups=COMMON
at that point you will probably want to reboot, since some of the services running might not update their configuration.
This looks interesting, any way i can actually do this without deleting the users ? any way i can just modify them ?

Since you really don't care about permission all that much, why not make one user account that both users use to login then all your problems are solved.

People here are trying to teach you something but you are really unwilling to learn. If you plan on maintaining a linux system you really need to get on the ball and stop asking people to take your hand and give your every command you need to type in because one day someone is going to give you sudo rm -rf / and if you don't know what it does you will learn very quickly.

I was setting COMMON as the primary group between them, so folders/files were created with COMMON as the group.

-G is supplemental and non-primary groups.

it was to knock off all of the extra none needed groups that he may have added to his users. it was only a hint.

Code:
-g (primary group assigned to the users)
-G (Other groups the user belongs to)
