Hey Louis, I am trying to do everything inside Gnome, well I found that
just opening Nautilus, or Thunar, (maybe other FMs also but I only using
those two) you can rightclick on any folder or file and choose
properties, you get a dialog with a permissions tab just click it and
set any way you want, I really found it easier than opening the
terminal. And you can set it for a folder and it will auto set all files
