View Full Version : [ubuntu] weird "emblems" problem with files

April 24th, 2008, 09:58 PM
I did a fresh installation of hardy this morning and its awesome but experiencing something weird. Every mp3 ,jpg or anything I copy over to my home directory shows the little read only emblem icon on the corner of each file. Is there a way to globally change that so it doesnt show what I am guessing as "read-only"? On everything....

It sounds to me like you need to take ownership of the files again. try a sudo chown -hR yourusername folderofmp3files to take ownership of the files again. those emblems are warning you about permission (at least thats my guess).
