Re: Ownership & Permissions Do Not Propagate In Gnome & KDE
Sorry, I should clarify. It is both ownership and permissions with which I am having trouble, but more ownership than permissions.
I copied the folders & files from an NTFS drive and placed them into an ext3 drive used for /home. The folders & files went directly into my account-specific home directory. For example, assume cat2005 is the user. I copied the folders & files into /home/cat2005
After doing so, linux showed root as the default owner of all folders & files. To fix this, I logged in as root (in both Gnome & KDE) and changed the ownership and permission assignments. I applied the changes to all subfolders and files.
The folders changed ownership and permission as desired. The files did not change ownership but did change permission.
Thus, I must somehow change file ownership.
I am a casual linux user who simply wants a Windows replacement. I have little computer knowledge so speak to me as if I were an easily confused child. Thank you.
