    folder with lock icon?

    I have a folder with a lock icon on it, and it has a buch of images I can not take out of it, because it is locked.

    How can i unlock this folder via terminal?

    You have to change ownership:
    Code:
    sudo chown -R username:username /path/folder
    Alternatively, you can view and access the folder by opening nautilus as root:
    Code:
    gksudo nautilius
