I have been trying to change the ownership of a folder from "root" to "caleb" (the user). When I attempt to change it in the terminal, it states that it has been changed, but when I look at the properties of that folder in Nautilus, it is still owned by root.
Terminal changes ownership
caleb@Caleb-Linux:~$ sudo chown caleb -v /opt [sudo] password for caleb: changed owndership of '/opt' from root to caleb
caleb@Caleb-Linux:~$ ls -ld /opt ddrwxrwx--- 4 caleb caleb 4096 May 10 21:37 /opt
But Nautilus doesn't show ownership change
