Thread: Red plug on my Home folder???

    Default Red plug on my Home folder???


    I am not able to "gunzip -c file.tar.gz | xf - " anymore in my own
    freaking folder!

    The last thing I have done that might have created this nightmare is
    going into Home folder in Konqueror super user mode to edit and save
    config files for my work project.

    Using konsole in user mode gives me bad tar errors.
    And when I dir the home folder any new downloaded tar.gz files have
    only -rw-r--r--

    Code:
    --------------------

    Make sure you are still able to write to your directory, and that you
    own it.

    Good luck.

    And what does the red plug sticking out of my home folder mean in
    Konqueror? I feel it means something is defiantly screwed up!

    Also the Lost & Found in home folder has a yellow lock on it.
    Obviously that means I am not allowed to go there.

    I just want to be able to do what I want in my home folder

    Thanks,
    Chetanji

    I went into Konqueror Super User File Manager and right clicked on home
    folder and went into permissions and changed owner from root root to
    chetan users. Now I can execute programs.
    I tried your suggestion as per below.

    Did I do the correct thing as in above?
    Thank you for your help in my ignorance.

    Yes, that was exactly what I was looking for. The output of the command
    BEFORE you changed things would likely have shown 'root' as the
    user/group owner of your directory, which would be a problem. You've
    already changed it back so you're fine now. Good job working on that as
    quickly as you did.

    Good luck.
