    Default What does it mean when fliles are listed with green block background?

    Using a terminal shell and entering ls -l, all the files in the user /home/user1 appear with a green block background. The files in /home/user2 have standard Linux colors. What does the green block mean?

    If you do ls -la, you will see the permissions on the directory are 777 rather than the normal 755
