I changed my harddrive from I3 to I5 machine. Originally
- I3 machine had Ubuntu 14.04 harddisk with user dell
- I5 machine had Windows 10 harddisck originally with user masi
- I5 machine with Ubuntu 14.04 harddisk
and I get permission denied messages, even in trying to create a folder to my desktop of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
Error while creating directory Untitled Folder. There was an errer creating the directory in /home/dell/Desktop. Show more details > Error creating directory: Permission denied.
Also I needed to do after the harddisk change
- reactivate Matlab in the system once again.
I think I have privilege/permission/owner problem in my whole system.
After Alex's command
I actually run Alex's command
sudo chmod -R 755 /home/dell/ but not seeing anything strange.
Which files of 644 and 664 could be messed up by the command?
Outputs of Ralph's commands
echo $USER gives dell.
ls -l /home/ gives
drwxr-xr-x 29 dell dell 4096 joulu 14 00:35 dell
How can you fix the privilege problem in the system?
