so ubuntu noob here but I'm in a group with different people having different usernames. So I made a directory, and I want to share this with a single user from that group. How do I achieve this? I want to give rwx access.
You can use setfacl
setfacl -m u:username:rwx myfolder
This sets permissions for specific users, without changing the ownership of the directory.
Required, but never shown
