I'm running WoW through wine. In order to install addons I need to give all the files in the program permission to execute as a program. the problem is I can't (dont know how) just right click the folder and give everything inside permission i have to open each one and give them all permission, which can quickly turn into hundreds depending on the addon. how to give permission to execute as a program to all the files in a folder at once it would save me a lot of clicking and time.
I Have Configure Samba server in Centos, I need give permission like for some user(5User) can able to read and write the particular folder, and again i need give some another user(6user) can only read permission for same folder.

I've got folder /srv/www/site1 that's owned by www-data:www-data (Apache). Now I need to give FTPuser1:ftpusers r/w access to the same folder, but all my attempts are gone bad. How should I exactly do it?
Just finished downloading a game in .run format, i downloaded it to my Home>Downloads folder and ran these commands in terminal: (game is tremulous if it matters)
chmod +x tremulous.run ./tremulous.run
It started it up in the terminal and i began working my way through the installation process, and i tried to install it into my Home>Games folder. (Is it supposed to be home>games or your username>games?)
and it said PERMISSION DENIED. No write permission to Home/Games/
How do i give myself read and write permissions to my game folder?

A rather new user here, was messing with the preferences on a user folder of mine on Karmic, looking for a way to make the folder invisible to users (like the old windows option). Set it to 'none', then closed it, returned to the directory finding the folder with a box with an 'x' on it.
Went to open it, it says 'access denied'. So I think 'okay, how do I undo that', go back to see if I can restore it back to 'read & write' with no sucess.
Seached the forums for a solution to this issue, most of solutions revolve around 'gksudo nautilus' which I attempted to open via command-line. Nothing seemed pop open after I entered my password in responce to entering said command-line, probably because I really don't know how to use Nautilus.

I have samba allowing only known users, and on the ubuntu side, I have the folder permission 777. I have the same exact samba smb.conf file(locations of course matching new server), but I can't get it to authenticate with the new server(Old server is up and running too) and I'm lost. I thought I had it figured out when I did my last server, but I seem to be missing something on this one.
I was happily running Ubuntu Netbook Version 10.04 on my Dell Mini 10v, until I began having trouble booting up. I tried to upgrade to Ubuntu Netbook Version 11.04 to fix the problem. However, now I can not boot up unless it's to a USB drive with Netbook Version 11.04. I'd like to copy my files to an external hard drive so I can copy them to a new Macbook. However, when I boot to the USB and try to view my files in my HOME folder and other folders, they are X-ed out. They say that I don't have permission to view the files since I did not create them. Again, I only want to get the files onto an external hard drive and onto my Macbook. How can I gain access to my files?
