I put my home folder on its own partition following the instructions in the Ubuntu Documentation Partitioning/Home/Moving wiki.
Now I'm not the owner of my own home folder. How can I fix this? I can't use Wine because it says I have to be the owner of my home folder. When I use
sudo nautilus then try to change permissions, it reverts to root every time I select myself or any other group. Is there a command I can use to make myself the owner of my home folder?
I have already tried the following commands:
sudo chown -R username /home/username
• This one wouldn't work, it replied:
chown: cannot access '/home/aaron/.gvfs': Permission denied
sudo chown -hvR username:username /home/username
• This one output all of my files' names telling me that their ownership was changed, but when I went and checked it still said root.
