Thread: Folder Permition and Wine

    Question Folder Permition and Wine

    Hello, its me again ... So far I'm loving the 11.2 experience, after a few problems here and there I have now come to another issue.

    I have installed wine and I wanted to play World of Warcraft, I successfully got my wow running on wine perfect. Only one problem, the only way to access to my wow folder is throu "root". I guess my question is:

    How can I change the permisions on my wow folder and to stay like that for ever, I change it on root but it allways comes back to "Permition denied", and I have to "su" into the folder...

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance guys.

    Check the box at the bottom 'Apply to all sub-folders and contents'

    well, I logged on with "root" on my user selection screen instead of my user name, but then i never open "Dophin" on root, I assumed that once logged as root I allready have dolphin in su mode ... Comfirm please. And thank you.

    OK. Never do that.
    Just login as user
    Go to the menu and in the search box type dolphin
    You should see super user dolphin appear.

    If it still doesn't work - open a su terminal and do this

    Code:
    chmod 777 /.wine/drive_c/program files/world of warcraft

    The problem may not be mode but ownership. If the system thinks root
    owns the files instead of the user it causes real trouble.
