user: magz (dauther)
user: nigel (me)
We each have our own folder for files i.e. magz and nige. This has always worked well and it didn't matter which user is logged in we could create and access files in the other users folder with full permissions.
Code: Select all
root@nbsq: /media/2xfi/files# ls -l total 8 drwxrwxr-x 9 nigel nima 4096 Jul 13 09:45 magz drwxrwxr-x 3 nigel nima 4096 Jul 13 09:45 nige
What I've found is that if I create a folder while I am logged in then that folder cannot be acessed by my daughter when she is logged in and the same applies if she creates a folder then I cannot access it when I am logged in, unless of course I use terminal to change the owners.
In each case with the new folder the owner will be: root and the group will be: root
I would have thought what works for Ubuntu would work for Debian, however there must be differences.
Can someone explain where I may have gone wrong.
I hope I have supplied enough imfomation.
