I was trying to beautify my desktop so downloaded some themes. Found out that I don't have permission to paste the theme files to the above folder. So I used the guide here: Give user write access to folder
This has messed up the system theme & now the folder is inaccessible and the system has a white theme (which I presume means no theme). Running
stat themes gives :
xx@TPX260:/usr/share$ stat themes File: 'themes' Size: 4096 Blocks: 8 IO Block: 4096 directory Device: 801h/2049d Inode: 2228383 Links: 17 Access: (0666/drw-rw-rw-) Uid: ( 0/ root) Gid: ( 0/ root) Access: 2016-10-18 09:38:10.786996316 +0100 Modify: 2016-10-18 09:33:18.320935727 +0100 Change: 2016-10-18 09:35:18.308242550 +0100 Birth: -
How can I get permissions of the directory back to the OS default so that themes can start working again?
