i just found a stupid condition
when i try to change permissions of a folder with subfolders(or some folders with subfolders) and in permissions tab i change the name of root to myself and check "apply change to all subfolders ,) and click ok , it shows a dialog box that after some seconds it vanishes but the strange thing is that just some of the subfolders’s permissions get changed not all of them.
i have done this as root so its not permissions fault but konquerer’s fault i think .
Is there anyone that can help me ?
i did the same with dolphin and it works beautifully …
so why konqurer doesn’t work as it shold??
i mean why does konqurer just changes just some of subfolders’s permission not all of them?
I’ve experienced the same problem, I think with every version of openSUSE I’ve used over the years. The only way I can be sure permissions are changed on all folder contents is by using CHMOD in console.
Use file manager super user mode to navigate to the .dir
right click - properties
don’t edit the user, just change the 3 drop boxes in permissions tab
to can view and modify
apply to all sub dir
i did it exactly like you said but still same result
i thought Linux was supposed to be stable and do the little works great but why its gui cant change permissions of subfolders like in windows ,is beyond me
i know this and i wanted to add some dictionaries to stardic and i did it with super user file manager ,but folders permissions got stuck with root and others ( including me ) couldn’t use those dictionaries. so i needed to change those folders’ permissions
