    Default Re: unable to change permissions

    you can use Nautilus here also..

    however, if the files you want to change are outside your own /home
    directory you will probably need root powers..

    do that simply by launching nautilus this way:

    -hold down the Alt key and press F2
    -in the resulting pop-up blank, type

    gnomesu nautilus

    -give the root password when asked, then press enter
    -nautilus with root powers will pop up

    CAREFUL what you change, move, delete etc...and, don't forget that
    that particular instance of nautilus is very powerful (and dangerous)..

    -welcome- to openSUSE
