Need help with permissions (SOLVED)
« on: September 22, 2016, 01:14:16 pm »
I have a new laptop that came to me with windows 7 installed.  I have dual booted it with Peppermint7 and Mint 17.3.  Besides swap there is one other partition (Data) is use to store files, pictures etc.  I had moved this data from my old laptop to an external hd, then cut/paste to Data during the setup of my dual boot.  My problem is that everything in the Data partition is now owned by root.  How do I go about changing the permissions for all these folders without changing them individually?

To help us help you, ALL new requests for technical support should include basic system information.

If you haven't already done so, please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the following command:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
then copy what was returned in the terminal and post it back here.

This was an automated response but please don't ignore it, providing this information now is highly likely to save time for both you and any prospective respondents and aid in the diagnosis of your problem  .. Thanks in advance :)

Hi tadpole1954, sorry I made an error with:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -L
Could you please redo it:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
Many thanks. 

For future reference, could you please remember to encapsulate terminal outputs with the Insert, Code # function.  For extra long outputs, please use the Spoiler, Sp function.  Don't combine the functions.  Only use one or the other  ;).  These preserve the original format of the output.  This makes it easier for future visitors to relate to their own issues.  These functions are found in the forum editor, above the,  :-[ Embarrassed and  the :'( Cry emoticon respectively.  Use the Preview button to see how it'll look in the forum.  This time, I've done it for you - many thanks  ;).

Okay, can you make sure the Data partition is mounted (by browsing into it in the file manager), then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
mount
again.

so we can see where (and how) it normally gets mounted.
