I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10. I am the only user, and would like to be able to drag files from directory to directory.
1) How can I open up permission to do this? Do I do this from root?
2) Is there a command that I can enter into the terminal? If so, what would an example command be?
I am thinking it must be something like grant user r-w-x ability from the the closest file to root as possible (so that I have cascading capability throughout the rest of the files).
If I need to do this directory by directory I will, mainly I am used to being able to do pretty much whatever I wanted within a Windows environment. As time goes by, I realize doing this from the command line will be something that I will want to do. However, I did not realize the bit of time it is taking me to do some simple things. I am just wanting to get up to speed quickly.
