I have a folder in a luks encrypted partition /media/user/luks-partition/folder on Ubuntu 12.10.

I am not able to change folder's permissions. I tried using the nautilus gui and chroot both as $user and as #root.

My question is similar to this ubuntu-partition-permissions (but no working answers have been given)

sudo chmod -R 777 /media/user/luks-partition/folder

Also, to change the Owner: sudo chown -R username /media/user/luks-partition/folder

I would look into what permissions you should use though too.
