Ok, If you have used these commands in a terminal then nothing new to tell you about those commands.
But I have one thing left that always works for me, I didn't mention it before because it involves installing from the package manager Synaptic
. It is called Krusader
, a dual pane file manager:
First, install Krusader using the package manager from the Mint Menu
After it is installed, open your Mint menu, go to > applications > accessories > krusader > tools > start root mode krusader > sign in using your administrator password >
Then dig your way into the folder you want to change permission, right click that folder, choose the permission tab, there you can change the permission to your user name, before you exit, check the box at the bottom to change permission also on all subdirectories and files.
