    That last command issued is wrong it is either "$LOGNAME" or "hydra" (without the "$" symbol). Not sure how the shell will handle that error.

    You can either copy/paste TheFu's code box OR substitute your username "hydra" (again without the "$" symbol), don't combine the two. The $ symbol causes the shell to expand the system variable "LOGNAME" to give, in your case, the name "hydra".

    May be worth another try and then check if you keep getting the permissions issues.

    Edit: after a bit of testing here the $hydra used in your command should not be a problem. I tested by creating a directory with a file in it and after issuing the command on it all ownership was set to my username even with the $ symbol used.

    And using the exact code was the winner! After using $hydra didn't work I used the code as instructed in the first place because I'm an excellent listener eventually...

    Thank you all for your help.

    If everything is now working well, could you please mark the thread as [SOLVED]? My signature line below has a guide for how to do so; the blue link in the middle, if it is needed.
