Raspberry Pi Linux LESSON 23: Changing File and Folder Permissions

In this lesson we look at changing file and folder permissions. In the earlier lessons we learned that we can view the file and folder permissions by navigating to the folder of interest, and then giving the ls -l command. In order to change the permissions, we will use the chmod command. This video explains how to use the chmod command to control who has what permissions.

  1. Hi Paul:
    Excellent by the way. One confusing part was when you executed the cats.txt file. The message returned was “cannot be found”. If you preceed the cats.txt with ./ the message returned is “permission denied” this would just re-enforce your point a little better. I just wish you were doing this when I was a student.

Sorry that was in the previous lesson.
