Thread: Folder permissions?

  1. #1

    Default Folder permissions?

    I have installed Flight Gear and need to edit many of the files. However, its in a directory thats owned by root. Because i will end up doing a lot of experimentation in these folders, i dont want to have to log into root account every time i need to make changes (and everyone says to stay out of it anyway). The only way i see is to manually change the permissions of EVERY folder under the main flight gear directory. Theres got to be another way.
    Can i change the installed directory to my home folder?
