comment Running Ubuntu 14.04 lts only folders I can access is in the home folder and all others I am denied access. how can I fix this?
From my previous comment: "Changing who owns the files/directories can break other processes that might need access." ... doing a recursive chown is ONLY partially correct. Which makes it 100% wrong.... MySQL for example?

You are correct that changing ownership would allow access. However, Changing who owns the files/directories can break other processes that might need access. A better solution would be to See which group has access and add the current user to that group.

It would be better to see which group has access to the directory with ls -ld directoryname and then give the current user permissions by adding them to that group. I guess if the folder is owned by root you would be correct. And using the 777 flag is generally frowned upon. Setting the permissions to what only is needed is generally more secure, something like 655 or something similar. Using chmod 655 -R dirname by using sudo cp -r the files and folders inherit the same permissions as the parent directory and it doesn't really resolve the user permissions.
